    Dear Lawrence Families + Caregivers:

    Lots of exciting stuff happening this week at Lawrence!

    Please join us at the following events:

    Used Book Fair Goes through Wednesday - Stop by the used book fair in our Main Lobby today, Tuesday and Wednesday.  There are hundreds of books to choose from. Get your collection of summer beach books now!  Hardcover books are $2.00 and Paperback books are $1.00. Thanks to our awesome volunteers for setting up and running the book fair.

    Building a Stronger, More Inclusive Community at Lawrence - This Wednesday we have a special evening planned from 6:30-8 pm in the Lawrence Library - Come join us for a Lawrence parent-teacher community conversation about how to build a stronger, more aware, and more inclusive Lawrence community.

    Why is this conversation important?  

    Our goal is to have an open dialogue about diversity and inclusion within our Lawrence community, including experiences of hate speech/symbols as well as other types of intolerance/exclusion.  What are the issues, and what kinds of education on these topics might be needed/possible in K-8?

    What work is currently being done at Lawrence on these issues?

    Learn about Lawrence’s new Peer Leader Program (led by Ms. Kern) and professional learning groups organized by Lawrence teaching staff, among other efforts.  How can parents support this work, and what work is ongoing on the parent side?

    What more could we do together at Lawrence?

    Brainstorm with us!  There is interest in forming a new Lawrence Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee to bring together kids, parents, teachers, and administrators working on these issues from all angles.

    {This event is endorsed by School Council.}  

    WIshing you all well!
