Dear Laurelwood Families:
We wish you a wonderful summer! The 2015-16 school year was terrific and we enjoyed getting to know your children. Laurelwood has a special place in the community and in the hearts of teachers, parents and students who have worked here and attended here. We bid farewell to some really fabulous teachers and staff who have dedicated their lives to kids. Many are moving to new jobs, staying home with new babies or simply changing grade levels! Congratulations and best of luck to Linda Varveris, Kourtney Ghelfi, Crystal Stafford, Jen Gray, Morgan White, Chris Stern and Jennifer Zeitler in their new school homes! Best to our new mommies - Katy Howser and Amanda Ramon!
Please welcome new staff Laura Jones, Aimee Kalivoda, Jessica Whyte, Felicity Cooper, Virgie Blancas, Joanna Julin, Mark Beasley, Kristen Green, Andrea Vasquez (health) and Arwen Gutierrez! We will do our best to keep our lists up to date as to grade placements and new assignments. Mrs. Stafford will return to us part-time in the fall in the capacity of ELD/Newcomer instructor.
As you may have noticed, our school is undergoing a major Bond funded construction project. When we re-open in August, all classrooms will have new HVAC (Heating/Air Conditioning), new LED overhead lighting, new carpeting and updated wireless internet routers in every regular building. With the new wireless internet, we have added chrome book carts using a combination of school site discretionary funding and parent donations for two grade levels: 4th and 5th. We received a grant for second grade chrome books and our next two grade levels will be funded this school year: Grade 3 and Grade 1. Please consider our future technology plans when you donate funds to Laurelwood!
Please plan to join our PTA this fall. Our PTA is extremely supportive of projects and volunteers more hours than I can count. The PTA has a new website up and running for your reference. If you wish to volunteer at school, please complete a packet from the office including a copy of your driver’s license and a current TB test (within 4 years). Once you are processed to volunteer, you will sign in the office and have a badge to wear when you enter the school. If you are not processed, you must ALWAYS get a sticker from the front office to enter campus. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students and staff safe!
We look forward to another wonderful year in 2016-17! Residency verification is scheduled for August 2-4. Please plan accordingly!
