Earl M. Lawson Elementary School

Principal's Message

Principal's Message

Hello Lawson Families,
Recently during dismissal we have a slight issue with cars blocking the parking lot entrance at the front of the school. I know we have very limited parking and that is a frustration for us all.  Please pull completely into the parking lot and off to the side to avoid blocking the entrance. Thank you for your help with this matter.

On a personal note I wanted to update you on some changes affecting our school for next school year.  Last Wednesday, the Board of Education named me as the next Principal of Richard Warren Middle School.  My new role in the district does not officially begin until July, and I will remain as the principal of Lawson for the rest of this school year.  Stefanie Bourne will be taking my place as an Interim Principal.  Mrs. Bourne should be a familiar face, as she is our current Assistant Principal at Lawson.

There has also been a calendar change on the last day of school. Wednesday, May 24th, will only be a half day for students. Please mark your calendars with this information that means there are only 21 and a half days left of school now.
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.
