Lawson Students Welcome Community Partner for Science Lesson

This week students at Lawson Elementary welcomed Brenda Taxeras from the Leavenworth County office of K-State Research and Extension for a fun science lesson. Brenda conducted an experiment with the students to illustrate Isaac Newton's law of inertia. Students stacked a pie tin and a paper towel tube on top of a half-full cup of water. They placed an egg on top of the tower they built. When students slapped the pie tin, the eggs were supposed to drop into the cup of water to show that an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an external force.

Quarterly Reward Parties

At Lawson this year we will continue to recognize those students who are following the school’s expectations by hosting Quarter Reward Parties. These parties will be held at the end of each quarter one day during the student’s specials time. Each quarter different activities will be planned for the party. The parties are free of charge and we will provide all supplies.

At the beginning of each quarter a new criteria will be set to determine which students get to attend the reward party. To be invited to the 1st Quarter Reward Party, a student must have four or less Office Referrals and NO ISS or OSS days. If a student attends all 4 quarter reward parties this year they will then get to attend an extra special reward party at the end of the school year. Invitations and details for the final reward party will be sent at a later time.

If you have any questions about the quarterly reward parties, please contact your child’s teacher or the front office.
