Dear Families,

I have great news to share with you. BINGO night was such
a huge success! We raised $6000! Many thanks and appreciation to our Parent Group for working so hard on collecting donations from community members and putting baskets together for BINGO prizes and silent auction. Also a huge thank you for Laurel teachers for also contributing to the collection of basket items. Laurel is also very grateful for the community members who donated items to fill the BINGO baskets, and those who attended the event and contributed to the fundraising cause. We all can also agree that the fourth grade teachers who helped during the event did a knock-out job! Because of you and this collective effort, we are able to provide our fourth graders with a unique opportunity to participate in Outdoor School, where they will spend the week at Camp Lutherwood, engaging in hands on science and physical activities.

Our next Family fun night is March 2nd! It is going to be a “Dress Like Your Favorite Children’s Book Character Night.” Staff and students are invited to dress up like their favorite character the entire day on Thursday, February 2nd. During the evening event, we will have community members reading all-time favorite Dr. Seuss books, games, door prizes, crafts and much more. It is going to be a marvelous night filled with fun and love of reading. In addition, we are taking this opportunity to promote healthy eating and wellbeing through our CATCH program. We will have some informational materials and a YUMMY, healthy snack set up in the cafeteria for you to enjoy. Please be on the lookout for a flyer coming home soon in your children’s Tuesday folders for more information. Hope to see all of you there.

Our Laurel Vision focus of the month is “Responsible Citizens”. We kicked this theme off by honoring one of our most responsible citizens in town, the one and only, Officer Jackson! During our student assembly on February 8th, we welcomed a group of community members from American Legion who helped us celebrate Officer Jackson’s contributions to our community. You can support your children’s understanding of how to be responsible citizens by having conversations about ways you can be responsible at home, in the community and at school. Thank you so much for your support of our Vision.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Warm Regards,
Nadira Rizkallah, Principal
