Principal, Nadira Rizkallah

Dear Families,

Thanks to all of you who came to our Math/Science Family Fun Night. It was surly a very fun night. I especially enjoyed the “Egg Drop” contest. I believe students and parents who attended, did too. Also the Earth Day celebration was amazing and the students were so creative with their All Species dress up. Many thanks to our talented instructional assistant, Karrie Nelson, for leading this effort. Coming up in the next couple of weeks are office professionals (4/25-29) and teacher appreciation weeks (5/2-6). I encourage you to help your kids make cards, notes or bring a flower from the garden for our outstanding office staff and endlessly, dedicated teachers. Also a phone call to express appreciation will make the day. Thank you all for helping me continue to foster and nurture a positive school culture.

The laurel staff have been engaging in visioning activities for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 school years. This involved lots of time examining our core values, guiding principles and our vision for our community. This process included certified and classified staff members. Our next step is involving the community and the students to grow this vision. On March 8th the entire staff met and celebrated what they have accomplished thus far in this effort. We were able to build the following, ever-growing, vision and guiding principles for educating and nurturing our students. We are looking to our families and the community at large to help us support the growth of this vision by giving us feedback and ideas for achieving this vision. I wanted to include it in this newsletter and invite you to engage in conversations with us about what you think. Remember this is a growing vision, and not carved in stone. We understand that a vision needs to be alive, adaptable, and ever-growing. We value your feedback and involvement. Here it is:

Laurel is committed to creating a safe learning community where each and every student is actively engaged. We strive to be compassionate and responsible citizens with a focus on academic growth and individual excellence.
