A message from Head of School Laurie Wolke

Dear Families and Friends,

As I look back on the achievements of our 2016-17 school year, I am thrilled to see the magic of Laurence alive and well for children of all ages. Our students continued to grow, learn and thrive in an environment that is both aesthetically beautiful and emotionally and physically safe. We remembered to "Keep Kind in Mind," and learned how to follow our inner compass to guide our decision-making.

From academic and athletic achievements, to secondary school matriculation and incoming admissions, it was truly a remarkable year. Most importantly, it was truly a joy for me to experience another year of happy children engaged in all aspects of learning. As we look toward the summer, we say goodbye to our 41 graduating sixth graders, and wish them well as they embark upon the next step in their educational journeys.

Spotlight on Science

Our students have been very busy exploring the world through incredible, hands-on activities in our science lab.

The 2nd Graders have been learning about dinosaur bones, including how to identify them based on their characteristics. In the science lab, the students did their very own archaeological dig where they dug bones out of plaster and classified them. Click here for a link to photos.

The 5th Graders have been learning about the structures and function of the circulatory system. As a part of this exploration, they had the opportunity to dissect a sheep's heart. Click here to see pictures from this lab project!
