the latest at Laurence
Life at Laurence certainly felt a bit more back to normal this week as the spirit of giving returned during Wednesday's Buck-a-Popsicle Fundraiser. Our 6th graders ran this drive to raise money to support COVID relief in India via Khalsa Aid International. Many of them created marketing posters for the drive, and on Wednesday, they spearheaded the recess popsicle fun. Thank you to our 6th grade class and all of our families who participated in this drive, which raised $3,000!
Last week, we were thrilled to welcome book author (and 6th grade mom), Donna Tetreault, to visit with our Kindergarten through 2nd grade students! She read her new book, Dear Me: Letters to Myself, For All of my Emotions, which teaches young children how to recognize and manage the emotions they feel throughout the day.
On May 27th at 5:30 p.m., we are thrilled to present Laurence School's new Diversity, Equity, Anti-Racism & Inclusion Strategic Action Plan at a special, all-school Town Hall. During the event, our Administrative Team, as well as members of our Board of Trustees, faculty, and parent body, will share the new plan and why it's important for every member of the Laurence School community.
