Dear Families,

Happy New Year to all of you! I hope that this year brings you peace, joy and lots of laughter. Our start of 2015 year has been wonderful. It was amazing watching our students’ enthusiastic, smiling faces as they passed through the hall the first day back from the Winter Break. They came back eager to learn and got right into their awesome learning mode. Way to go Laurel Leopards!!!

We have exciting news to share with you. Just before the break, Denice Correll joined our Laurel family as the new administrative assistant/head secretary. Denice comes to us with an extensive experience in office work and will be a great asset to our school. Denice lived in the Junction City community and her kids went to Laurel. Please help me welcome Denice to our wonderful staff.

Laurel Elementary will be holding a glasses drive during the week of January 26th! We will be accepting all types of glasses: prescription, sun, safety, even broken glasses! These donations will be given to our local Lions Club who help better the lives of many by giving those less fortunate access to glasses and eye care! Be on the lookout for more information in your student’s next Tuesday folder!

Nadira Rizkallah, Principal
