Hello Lawson Families,
This Tuesday we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day together as a school with parties at 2:30 in the afternoon. You should have received an information letter in your child’s Thursday folder explaining what we will do that day. If you would like to join your child’s classroom for the party, please do not arrive prior to 2:30 pm.

There will be no Pioneer Boost or STEM Club this week after school.

There will be no school for students this Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or even the following Monday. We hope to see your family during your scheduled time on Thursday for Parent Teacher Conferences. Please enjoy the time together as a family and we look forward to seeing everyone during your conferences. If you don’t recall your time or need to reschedule, just contact the office.
It’s a great day to be a Pioneer!
