Thank you Laurence students and parents for bringing the joy of the holiday season to our friends at the Lowman School. Our Toy Drive was a huge success! We collected approximately 600 toys, which will help make this holiday a very happy one for our sister school. Thank you for caring and for your wonderful support of the Kindergarten in their first community service project. Click here for a link to photos from the Toy Drive.
Laurence is proud to have joined the Golden West Debate League - a league comprised of 5th and 6th grade students from local independent schools. Our first ever debate team is now officially underway! Recently, with Mr. Butler and Mrs. Chen as their debate coaches, nine students participated in their first tournament at the Wise School. Our three teams researched and debated the topics of: uniforms in school, removal of Confederate statues, and term limits for Supreme Court justices. Congratulations to all of our debaters on a job well done! We look forward to our next tournament in February.
The 2nd Grade classes continued their studies about the Netherlands this week by learning about Sinterklaas - the Dutch Santa Claus. Click on "Read More" to read about the differences between the Dutch and American traditions and to see photos.
