• Congratulations Principal Creighton! 
    It is our honor to report that Laurel School's Principal Linda Creighton has been named Elementary Principal of the Year by the Association of California School Administrators for Region 5 (San Mateo and San Francisco counties). Of the over 300 schools in Region 5, only one is lucky enough to have Linda as its principal. From overseeing the building and opening of Laurel's Upper Campus, to bringing Project Based Learning to both campuses as a unifying practice, to the expansion of the Spanish Immersion Program, Linda's thoughtful and steady leadership has allowed MPCSD to grow and serve its families better than ever. Linda works tirelessly to ensure that Laurel School is indeed one of "the best place[s] to spend your childhood."
    Linda's accomplishment will be recognized at a dinner for all awardees on April 30, with many district colleagues cheering her on. Look for more ways to thank and congratulate Linda over the next few weeks. We are proud to have Linda and her excellent team at Laurel as part of our district family.

    Help Keep Hot Lunch at Laurel!
    Hot Lunch is a significant convenience to many families at Laurel. This 100% volunteer-led program could be in jeopardy - especially at the Upper Campus - if we cannot find enough volunteers to staff it. We urge you to please sign up for a 1 hour spot daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly - whatever your schedule (or grandma's, grandpa's, your au-pair, etc!) allows. Sign up to help at UC or LC today!
