Principal's Message

Hello Lawson Family,
This is Stefanie Bourne, principal at Lawson.  Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year.  The staff members at Lawson Elementary are very excited for this school year, and we welcome your input and involvement with the school throughout the year. I am looking forward to working with your students again, as well as getting to know all of the new Lawson students and their families this year.
Lawson Elementary has three basic expectations of everyone. They are: Respect Self, Respect Others, and Respect Property. Our first week of school is called Character Camp and during this time we focus on four main goals. They are:
     Create a climate of warmth, inclusion, and safety
     Teach classroom routines and behavior expectations
     Help students get to know and care for the classroom and school environment
     Establish expectations for academic work
On Monday, August 14th please join us for our Back To School Night from 5:00pm-6:00pm. Class lists will be posted in the hallways for you to check your child’s teacher and staff will be available to help you find your way around. Please make sure you to indicate to your child’s teacher how your child will get home each day and stop by the office and pick up a copy of our dismissal procedures. We also have our dismissal procedures posted in video form on our website and all of Lawson’s social media outlets. We are now on Facebook, so please search Earl Lawson Elementary and like our page. We will continue using Instagram and Twitter as LawsonUSD453. As always, feel free to tag us or use the hashtag #WeLoveLawson
I look forward to seeing everyone bright and early Tuesday morning for the first day of school. Breakfast will be served starting at 7:45 am and classes begin at 8:10 am.  Dismissal will begin at 3:20 pm. If you have any questions, feel free to call, email, or stop by as we would love to help in any way that we can.
Thank you and as always, It’s a Great Day to be a Pioneer!
Stefanie Bourne
