Dear Lawrence School Families,

It is with great excitement and anticipation of the upcoming year that I welcome back all of our students and families to The Lawrence School! As the principal of The Lawrence School, I am excited and energized to work with our staff, students and families to ensure high levels of academic, social and emotional success for all of our children. This year is going to be a year of continuous success and passion for learning as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous.

My belief is that how children learn is as important as what they learn: process and content go hand in hand. Our school is committed to the belief that all students can learn and succeed in a productive, orderly, safe and challenging learning environment. Knowing the children we teach–individually, culturally, and developmentally–is as important as knowing the content we teach.

Since we recognize that parents are their children’s first and most important teacher, we need your cooperation and involvement to provide your child with the best education possible. Take time to review and or talk with your children about their school experiences. Your interest and concern in their school progress will motivate them to do their best. Maintain contact with your child’s teachers and related service staff members to establish a successful home/school connection. I believe that the foundation of our future accomplishments will be found in the power of our combined efforts and the strength of our synergy.

If I can be of assistance to you, please call or email me. It is through being a collaborative learning community with consistent, honest, and open communication that I can best serve our students and families. I look forward to working with you all as we embark on what will prove to be a year of amazing accomplishments.
