Dear Laurence Families,
I hope you are having a wonderful and relaxing summer filled with family, friends, and fun! I'm thrilled to take on the role of Parent Association President this year and look forward to working with all of you to make the 2018-2019 school year spectacular for our children and entire community!
The Parent Association is already busy planning events, programs, and opportunities for you to get involved in the daily life of Laurence. Hopefully, you have already had a chance to look at the committee volunteer opportunities and sign up. If not, please click here to read about the committees and sign up by 5:00 PM today.
The success of our programs, events, and fundraising is only as successful as the support that we receive from you, our generous parent body! We have a wide variety of opportunities available, so whatever your interests are or schedule permits, we know there is something for you. Please take the time and volunteer on a committee or two (or even more!). Trust me, this is the best way to immerse yourself into the Laurence community and begin to make lifelong friends!
Once again, we will also have opportunities for grandparents to volunteer during snack bar and lunch. This is a great way for grandparents to visit the school and get involved – and the kids are thrilled to see them on campus!
Be sure to save the date for the first PA meeting on September 11th, K-4 Back to School Night on September 14th, and the Parent/Teacher Social on September 21st at Lakeside Country Club. We will also have our first Parent Education Series speaker on October 25th. Please note that this year, at least one of our speaker events will be in the evening, and we hope that this will allow for more parents to attend. Invitations to these and other events will be sent out in the coming weeks and months, and announcements will be in both your Room Parent weekly emails and the weekly Backpack News once school starts. Please keep your eye out for more information.
We hope to make your experience at Laurence as valuable as that of your children's. We greatly value each and every one of you, and know your time and support is precious.
On behalf of the Parent Association Vice President, Kari Garman, Treasurer, Angela Chan and Secretary, Allison Donovan, we thank you all for your support and look forward to the exciting year ahead.
Lesley Boone Teng
Parent Association President
