Principal's Message

Hello Lawson Families,
Several of our after school clubs started again this week. If your fourth or fifth grade child is interested in joining either the Pokemon or STEM club, we still have openings. Please just stop by the office to get a permission slip.

This week, we will be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge. The Great Kindness Challenge is a national initiative to promote kindness and bullying prevention. Throughout this challenge, schools from all over the country focus on being kind, building each other up, and taking a stand for kindness! This event is January 23rd - 27th. We are celebrating this week by having a spirit week. We invite all students to participate in this week’s activities to help them think of the importance of kindness.

The Great Kindness Spirit Week

Monday Jan 23rd –We will “Kick Off to Kindness” by wearing crazy and silly socks.

Tuesday Jan 24th – “Dreaming of Kindness Day.” So make sure to wear your pajamas to school this day.

Wednesday Jan 25th - “Peace, Love, and Kindness Day.” I can’t wait to see the tie dye T-shirts, Peace Signs, and any other sixties day attire.

Thursday Jan 26th - We will “Highlight Kindness” so please wear those neon colors, the brighter the better.

Friday Jan 27th - Wear that Lawson Pioneer blue and white to show that Lawson is for Kindness.
It’s a great day to be a Pioneer!

Lawson Students Build Candy Race Cars

This week, students at Lawson Elementary welcomed their regular guest, Brenda Taxeras from the K-State Research & Extension Office for another science lesson. This time students built their own race cars using cardboard for the chassis, straws for the axles, and peppermint candy for the wheels. Students then raced the cars to see whose design went the furthest.

Lawson Kindergarten Students Welcome Treats from Holiday Visitor

Kindergarten students at Lawson Elementary received a surprise from a special holiday visitor recently. Students learned about the European tradition of leaving shoes out for St. Nicholas Day. Students left their shoes out in the school's hallway, and sure enough St. Nicholas came to fill their shoes with candy and treats. He also left a stuffed animal for each student.

Lawson Fifth Graders Lead the Way

Fifth grade leaders at Lawson Elementary are lending a helping hand. Recently the students helped lead morning meetings in second grade. Students at Lawson start each school day with a morning meeting in their classroom to prepare themselves for learning that day.

Kindergartners Learn About Community Helpers

Lawson Kindergarten students have been learning about "community helpers" who have important jobs in Leavenworth, such as police, fire, and EMS services. This week students welcomed members of the Leavenworth Fire Department and Officer Heather Vogel from the Leavenworth Police Department to talk about their jobs and how they got into the profession. Students also had the opportunity to explore the equipment they use as part of their job, including a fire truck and police car.
