Principal's Message

Hello Lawson Families,
We only have two and a half days left in this school year and this will be our last Sunday phone call for the year.  Many of these announcements went home in Thursday folders, but I wanted to make sure you were aware of the many activities going on this week.

On Monday we will have our Movie Reward Party at the Landing 4 Theatre. Then in the afternoon we will pass out our yearbooks. A special thank you goes out to Mrs. Grasela for creating these this year.

On Tuesday we will our Fourth Quarter Reward Party  at Lawson. If your child has earned this reward, please have him or her wear socks because we have bounce houses coming.

Wednesday will be the last day of school for students and each classroom teacher will communicate with you any special activities that are happening in their classroom. This will be a half day and students will be dismissed at noon. We will have our grade level awards ceremonies on this day. Fourth and Fifth grade ceremony will begin at nine. Second and third grade will start at 9:45 and kindergarten and first will begin at 10:30. Every year I have parents ask, will my child get an award? The answer is I don’t know, some students will receive multiple awards, and some will not receive any.  Awards will be given for attendance, academics, character traits, specials class achievement, and citizenship.  If you have any questions about next Wednesday, please contact his or her teacher or the front office.

I want to personally thank you for a wonderful four years here at Lawson. I look forward to seeing your family again as your children come to Warren Middle School in the next few years. It’s a great day to be a Pioneer!

Lawson Elementary Hosts Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundaiton

The Lawson Pioneers graciously hosted the monthly meeting of the Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation Board of Directors earlier this week. After a full slate of business, it was time to hear from the Lawson principal, Laura Batson, and students representing various programs of the school. C.J. and Emma shared about the Lawson Leaders, their fundraising efforts, and classroom mentoring they provide to younger students. Mrs. Batson shared, “Young students are now coming up to me asking how they can be Lawson Leaders. It is a great thing to watch our older students working so positively with our younger students.” The Foundation BOD was highly impressed with the happenings at Lawson, and took action to support the fundraising efforts by donating $500 to their cause. Pictured above, Lawson principal, Laura Batson, accepts a donation check from Chris Norris (left), Foundation Vice President, and Catey Edwards (right), Foundation Director.

If you would like to help in their efforts, contact the school.
