Laureate Park Elementary kicked off its first month back to school with a variety of fun events. Our PTA held their second annual Ice Cream Social and Book Exchange. Families were able to enjoy some ice cream, exchange books for new ones, and make bookmarks.
Laureate Park PTA launched their Science Lab, built with Fun Run money from last year. Last month, our students learned about the scientific process. Our K-2 graders got to experiment with building a working bridge, while our 3-5 graders had fun building paper rockets! Thank you to our amazing volunteers for teaching and leading the lab lessons.
Our staff and students have had fun participating in a variety of themed days. We’ve had College Color Day, our fifth-grade teachers kicked off their unit on the rock cycle by dressing like rock stars, and our first-grade students are helping promote social and emotional well-being by wearing a t-shirt with a positive message! Each Thursday, they help spread a little positiviTEE!
Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year and Support Person of the Year. Ms. Ferguson, fourth-grade teacher, was nominated Teacher of the Year. Ms. Ferrer, school nurse, was nominated Support Person of the Year.
