Join us on Monday as we celebrate our Virtual Spirit Week!
As we close on Week of the Young Child we celebrate our families. Family members are young children's first and most important teachers. We encourage you to share your family photos with your child's teacher. Happy Family Friday!
Dear Lawrence Families, The Governor has announced that school will be closed until at least May 15th. Please stay connected with your teachers and our social emotional support teams during this period of “NY Pause”. Following social distancing guidelines remains our shared responsibility . We are proud of our students for their academic work ethic and for handling the tremendous emotional pressure of this crisis. Reach out for support, be strong and be well Thank you. Dr Pedersen
Week of the Young Child continues with Artsy Thursday! Think, problem solve, create! Children develop creativity, social skills and fine motor skills with open-ended art projects where they can make choices, use their imaginations, and create with their hands. Let's celebrate the joy and learning children experience when engaged in creative art making!
Attention Lawrence Families, the food distribution schedule has changed. The new schedule is: Monday pick up is for Monday & Tuesday, Wednesday pick up is for Wednesday & Thursday, and Friday pick up is for Friday & the weekend. Pick up times & locations have not changed.
Happy Artsy Thursday! Enjoy a video made by our UPK teacher, Ms. Caporina. Her video may help open up communication with your child about what is happening in the world today with the Coronavirus. Allow your child to express themselves and know it's okay to talk about what is happening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQcY3geMt7A
When children build together they explore math and science concepts and develop their social and early literacy skills. Children can use any building material—from a fort of branches on the playground to a block city in the classroom, or a hideaway made from couch pillows at home.
Today is Tasty Tuesday! Cooking together connects math with literacy skills, science, and more. Create your own snacks and share the recipes and photos of your creations with your child's teacher.
Happy Music Monday!
Happy Week of the Young Child! Today is Music Monday. When children sing, dance, and listen to music they develop their language and early literacy skills while being active and encouraging movement.
This week we are celebrating, "Week of the Young Child". Every day will be a different theme that you will see in this week's calendar located in the document section of our page.
Aiden and Zuria have created their own balance scales at home. One used paper cups, string, a hanger and objects in his home to test his scale while another used a pencil, string, objects and empty orange peels. Such creativity!
In play, children explore, create, improvise and imagine.
Food distribution will continue through Thursday this week. To allow for the holiday, food for Thursday through Monday will be distributed on Thursday. This will be 10 meals per student. Please bring something to take the food home in. Daily distribution will resume on Tuesday.
Lawrence Strong. Socially Distant, Emotionally Connected. Keep up the good social distancing work ( and students, your school work too please).
Creating, problem solving, role playing, learning!
