Laurentian Elementary School

Welcome Back From Principal Angie Williams

Welcome back to Laurentian Elementary!  We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and high spirits.  As we embark on our 2nd year in our beautiful building, we are delighted to welcome both returning and new students to our school community. Our dedicated team of educators has been actively planning an engaging curriculum using Project-Based Learning. Project-Based Learning focuses on hands-on experiences and real-world applications. Students will engage in meaningful projects that challenge them to solve problems, collaborate with peers, and develop essential skills for the 21st century.

Our Open House is scheduled for Thursday, August 31, 2023, from 3:30 to 5:30 P.M.  We hope you and your child will be able to attend.  This is a great opportunity for your child to meet their teacher and for you to ask any questions you may have about your child’s daily routines and expectations for the school year.

School supply lists may be found on our website by clicking on Laurentian Elementary under the Academics tab. Supply lists are also available in stores around the area. If you are unable to purchase supplies for your child, please contact the Laurentian Elementary office at 735-6201 or email [email protected].  We are here to help!

Our transportation schedules will be mailed before the first day of school. Please note, if you pick up your child from Laurentian Elementary, dismissal time for students being picked up will be 2:45 P.M.

The staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your child this year. I know we can work together with mutual respect and trust to ensure your child has a positive and successful educational experience at Laurentian Elementary.  Together, we can make this school year one of positivity, discovery, and achievement.  Enjoy your last few days of summer!
