Happy holidays, from the Lawrence Public Schools to all of our students, families and staff.

 

As we reflect on 2018 as a year of both memorable achievements and unprecedented challenges, we find ourselves more grateful than ever to work with and for this extraordinary community, and looking forward to a new year of serving Lawrence’s children.

 

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s. Please enjoy every moment of this time with your loved ones.

 

Warmest wishes, Cynthia Paris

Graphic that says Report Cards

Educators from across the district have been working to learn more about the benefits of Standards Based Grading and Reporting.  This two-year study will result in a new report card format for 2018-19.  Traditional letter grades do not tell parents which content and skills their child has mastered.  The new performance indicators will reflect progress on a continuum of standard mastery so educators, students, and parents will be informed of progress and skills.  We invite families to learn more by reading the FAQs below and by attending the next President’s Council Meeting on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at South Lawrence East School, 165 Crawford Street, Lawrence, MA beginning at 6:00 PM.
