Upcoming Grade Level Concert: Come see what the third graders have been learning in music!!
Third grade classes will be presenting their Grade Level Concert on Thursday, Jan. 30th, 1:30-2:10. Students will be singing and playing a variety of songs to celebrate the New Year! Families and friends are invited to attend!
Pop! Pop! Read-A-Thon is coming up!
Pop! Pop! Read-A-Thon is one of Laurel School’s biggest fundraisers of the year. This challenge encourages Laurel students to read (or be read to) everyday. Money raised allows the Laurel PTO to fund assemblies, books for classroom libraries, school supplies and much more. Our goal is to raise $20,000 ($30 per student) to continue funding these programs.
Pop! Pop! Read-A-Thon will run from January 27th through February 7th.
We are using the Read-A-Thon.com digital platform to track minutes read and enable students to streamline asking for donations. Each student can create a personalized page to send to friends and family, collect donations, and track minutes read. The week before Pop! Pop! starts, your child will bring home information detailing the simple steps to create their personalized page.
Pop open a good book!
STEAM Fair Volunteer Sign-Ups
It's time to start thinking about the annual STEAM Fair! This year the STEAM Fair will be on April 17, 2020 (in the morning at the Upper Campus from 8:30-12, and in the afternoon at the Lower Campus from 12:30-2:55).
This amazing event is the highlight of the year for many students. And it is entirely organized and staffed by parent volunteers. Last year, we had over 200 parent volunteers. This is a truly memorable day that would not be possible without you!
The STEAM Fair Committee is now recruiting parent volunteers, especially in K-2nd grade, to serve as workshop team members. Team members work together to lead the same workshop 3-4 times as different groups of kids rotate through. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to be involved and see the action first hand! Don’t worry if you’re not a scientist, artist, or tinkerer. You will be provided with detailed instructions to ensure your workshop is a success.

Please sign up no later than Monday, January 20. You’ll be contacted by the STEAM Fair Committee by mid-February with confirmation of your role and more information about the day.
