Principal's Comments

2019/2020 Conversations

  • Minor schedule changes for next year that occur on an annual basis due to the number of students, demographics, etc. Will be working with the same schedule consultants that are working with Morse Pond (the consultants will visit Lawrence in late April)
  • Any significant schedule changes would be introduced in the 2020-2021
  • Grade 8 MCAS Celebration. Last year the 8th graders did really well in math and want to reward that.

Lawrence School Handbook

  • Review/Feedback from Council Members
  • Add boxes on the student assignment pages - leave off disciplines Pg School sponsored activities consent form - back is something you want to stay. Also, is it generic form Pg. 55 (every page has a hall pass)
  • Can we make it smaller

School Council Comments

The next School Council Meeting is scheduled for May 13, 2019
