At Laurence, we "Keep Kind in Mind!"
Represent the "L"
Represent the "L" stands for lessons in life, learning, and leadership that Laurence students learn through our Character Education program. The program includes service learning and strives to grow our students' empathy levels and concern for others. Character education is integral to Laurence's educational philosophy, which is why it is integrated throughout the curriculum.
Each school year, the program is centered on a specific theme, providing a student-focused curriculum. Recent themes include "Solve and Evolve," "Follow Your Inner Compass," and "Keep Kind in Mind," which in particular has become a motto around our school.
The program stresses the importance of being a positive member of the community and taking action to help others. Through teaching and modeling generosity, responsibility, and kindness, we shape good students into good citizens, who Represent the "L” by acting as leaders and ambassadors for the School.
Students put these lessons into practice by participating in and leading a variety of service learning projects.
During one of our RWB&G Assemblies last month, Jack and Grayson D. and Collin and Miko B. told everyone about Kling Street Kids - a holiday fundraiser for Children's Hospital Los Angeles, which has raised more than $182,000 over the past 15 years. The day is filled with sledding, hot cocoa, and much more! But what makes the day so special is the money that is raised for all the kids at the hospital. IT'S KIDS HELPING KIDS!

Our annual Kindergarten Toy Drive will take place from December 4th-6th during morning drop-off. Please help make their first service project a big success. This very important drive benefits the Lowman School students, who depend upon our generosity this time of year. Because many of them are severely disabled, we are providing you with a specific list of toys that would be best suited for these children. Click the "Read More" link below to view the list. Thank you for your support!
On Friday, November 16th during morning drop-off, our 6th Graders will be holding their annual Frozen Turkey Drive benefiting Lowman School. The Lowman families depend upon the generosity of Laurence School for their Thanksgiving feasts. Our goal is to provide one turkey for each of the Lowman families and teachers.
Help make someone else’s day more sweet by donating your extra Halloween candy to the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry. Bring in your candy, along with other food or hygiene items, this Friday during morning drop-off.
