Teachers with posters of their schools

Educators, curriculum leaders, and administrators gathered on Friday, June 15th to celebrate the grouth demonstrated in Reading and Math over 2017-18. 19 LPS schools rely on the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) to plan for instructional supports that target specific student needs and build on strengths. The schools had much to celebrate as they analyzed their strong results and began planning for the 2018-19 school year.

Great job to all students playing this season. Congratulations to the winning teams!

Students from around the District and surrounding communities participated in what has been an exciting annual event for about 25 years when they arrived at Veterans' Memorial Stadium for the Special Olympics School Day Games. All the partnerships and volunteer help was greatly appreciated and the students had an exciting day of athletic events, games, fun and friendship. Here are some photos from the celebrations.

Dancers from across the Lawrence High School Campus were joined by student dancers from the Guilmette and Spark in expressive dance performances. They used the theme "I Am Lawrence" to tell personal stories taken from their own experiences in these student choreographed dances. Enjoy photos from the event here.
