Our mission and vision statements at Lawrence Elementary help guide everything we do. As our mission states, “Each student will graduate with the skills needed to contribute and thrive in a changing world.” The year of 2021 definitely presented challenges, but the students, staff, and parents of Lawrence Elementary persevered and accompiished the unimaginable. Labradors united and exemplified the true meaning of a team.
As we embark on the 2021-2022 school year, we will focus on the gratitude we have for one another and our commitment to thrive. In doing so, our staff, students, and families will continue to apply The Leader in Me framework and principles. The Leader in Me is based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits. Although children must be knowledgeable when they graduate, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and caring people. As each child discovers and develops his or her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.
It takes a team to accomplish something meaningful and significant for all. As we experience the 2021-2022 school year together, please remember I am just a phone call or email away. If I may be of assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
