Welcome to Lawrence Elementary School!

I am very excited to welcome you to Lawrence Elementary, and am honored to be joining the amazing Lawrence staff this year.    

We are committed to partnering with our families in order to build the academic skills and personal skills that prepare our students for the brightest possible future. 

At Lawrence, our dedicated and collaborative teachers use research-based strategies to ensure students receive the instruction they need to help them learn and grow.  In addition, we support and encourage students to develop personal skills such as perseverance, motivation, and positive and respectful interactions that will help them become responsible and productive members of society.  

Our parents are an extremely important part of our Lawrence community.  There are many opportunities for involvement.  We appreciate all that our parents do for our students, school, and community.

On behalf of the Lawrence staff, we thank you for your involvement and support, and look forward to a fun and productive year together!
