Leader In Me
We at Lawrence Elementary School are proud to be in our first year as a Leader in Me School. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence - based approach empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. What to expect now we’re a Leader in Me School?
- Increased use of 7 Habits language
- Leadership opportunities for students and families
- School-wide events
Our mission is to develop student leaders with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We at Lawrence Elementary truly believe in our mission statement and strive to help our students achieve their potential. Through our Leader in Me implementation we have better defined our school’s mission and live it more fully. By creating a focus on Leadership our school culture has improved and our students are not only learning the academic lessons they need but also acquiring the social-emotional skills they need for their future.

Leaders In Action
Lawrence students have been showing their leadership skills all over campus. Recently, 5th grade students helped kindergarten students shop at our annual book fair. They started with a greeting and assisted in choosing a new book. They also helped at the registers and learned how to count change.
"Rave to the two little boys (Hurley black back pack & Hurley army print backpack) who ride their bikes to school (Lawrence) in the morning. They are very courteous and respectful of others on the side walk. I always hear them talking respectfully to each other and others. They pay very good attention when crossing the road and always get off their bikes to do so."
