Principal's Message

Hello Lawson Families,
I hope your family had a wonderful Spring Break and we look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday. Breakfast is served every morning from 7:35 until 8:10 and then students are in their classrooms at 8:15. We begin each day with a class meeting that focuses on building relationships, learning social skills, and reviewing expectations. Please ask your child about this special time during their day. Thank you for making sure your child is at school on time each morning.

April will be here next week and we have only 41 days left of school. As we enter into the warmer months, we will begin to see more and more strappy sandals and flip flops. However those cute shoes are not always the best choice for our students during recess or PE. We want your child to be safe while participating in physical activities each day, so please make sure they have a pair of tennis shoes or shoes they can run and play in.
It’s a great day to be a Pioneer!
