Congratulations to Laura Walker, Lawson Early Childhood Special Education teacher, who was recently named as the Lawson Teacher of the Year. She will compete against three other nominees for a chance to be the district's Elementary Teacher of the Year.
Soldiers from the 291st MP Battalion at Ft. Leavenworth visited their friends at Lawson Elementary for breakfast and conversation this week. The 291st had "adopted" Lawson and members of battalion regularly visit the school and help with school functions. Students enjoy their time talking and playing with them and were glad to have them at breakfast this week.

They started off learning about how they migrated to North America roughly 25,000 years ago and learned about the various tribes that have existed throughout the country over time. Recently they welcomed a members of the Wyandotte tribe who spoke about the culture and traditions of their tribal members.
