6.20.14 Summer Update

Good morning Laidlaw families. Hopefully you have been able to enjoy some of this soggy summer so far. I wanted to give you some important updates:


1. We do not have working phones at this time. If you need immediate assistance, please communicate vis email and I will answer your questions. Keep in mind that Mrs. Hague will not be back until August 19th.


2. Construction- As of today, we officially have walls going up. The foundations have been poured and walls knocked down, but the big one is coming next week. Take a drive by to see the gym wall slowly come down. The Henry Bros. crew is doing an amazing job. We look forward to continued progress. 


3. Class Lists- This information will be mailed home approximately July 30th along with all your registration information. Please mark your calendars now for August 27th- Fees and Forms Drop Off, 5-7PM.  


4. Special thanks to the amazing people who contributed to the yearbook this year on the Yearbook Committee. We had a great team this year! Thank you to:

Wax Museum

The fourth graders hosted their annual Wax Museum on March 13. During the past few months, the students researched, took notes, wrote essays, edited, and gave speeches about important historical figures. The Wax Museum was the final step in the project. During the Wax Museum, the student statues “came to life” and presented a speech when students and parents dropped coins into their collection boxes.  It was an amazing event, and we raised over $1,000 in just two short hours! All the proceeds went to Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation which was the charity of our fourth graders choice.
