They will be sharing this learning as part of a Grade Level Music Concert next month. All of the first grade classes will be joining together to share songs and dances from different continents, inspired by the book, Throw Your Tooth On The Roof: Tooth Traditions from Around the World. The performance will take place on Friday, March 13th, 2:15-2:45 in the Multi at the Lower Campus. Student will be singing, dancing, and playing instruments, as well as sharing stories of different tooth traditions. Parents and family members are invited to attend.

    Laurel STEAM Fair Workshop Sign Up
     
    Laurel’s annual STEAM Fair is coming on Friday, April 17!  This is one of the best days of the year - with students learning, exploring, and experiencing science, technology, engineering, arts, and math through workshops led by our amazing parent volunteers.  
     
     

    NEW PROCESS THIS YEAR!  Student sign-ups for STEAM Fair workshops will be first-come, first-served.  You will receive an email through ParentSquare with a sign-up link on Monday, March 16 at 9:00pm.

    You will have the opportunity to select 4 workshops for students in grades K-2 and/or 3 workshops for students in grades 3-5.  Once a workshop is full, it will no longer be available for sign-ups. Please submit workshop requests only once per student.  

     

    To make the process as seamless as possible, we recommend you review these list of workshops with your student(s) ahead of time and make note of their top preferences.

    K-2 workshops 

    3-5 workshops

    However, please know that every student will participate in outstanding experiences!  

     

    Alert - if you are volunteering at the STEAM Fair, your workshop will be listed next to your student's name, but you will still need to select that workshop for your child as one of their sessions.
