From the Head of School Blog: At Laurence, we care about our students' safety, their emotional and physical well-being, as well as their reputations. We believe that elementary school-age children are not developmentally ready to participate in social networks unsupervised, nor do they need devices with texting, email, or Internet capabilities. In order to support our community in making informed choices about technology use at home, we recently invited cybersecurity expert Lori Getz to speak at Laurence. Here are a few key takeaways from her recent talks.
Character Education at Laurence is an important part of our curriculum. We always "Keep Kind in Mind."
An important part of our DEI initiatives for the 2019-2020 school year include professional development for our staff, faculty, and parents. Over the past week we have participated in two thought-provoking presentations to help us further in promoting a learning environment and school community where everyone can feel welcome.
