Principal's Message

The John K. Tarbox School is a small neighborhood school with just over 350 students in grades 1-5. Our small size affords us a family feel where all staff gets to know all students. Our focus this year is improving student performance in Reading/English Language Arts and Mathematics while continuing A Positive Behavior System (PBS) to reward good behavior and being proactive about bullying.

The Tarbox School is also improving parent-community involvement through the School Improvement Team, consisting of teachers, parent, our Business Partner Blueberry Hill Photos, and our Community Partner Essex Art Center. We also have a new Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and are planning monthly family activities, both social and academic. One of our major tasks this year will include the implementation of our school priorities which are: the development of the Wrtiting Curriculum. refine our intervention program,and to provide our students with an enrichment program twice during the month.

This is an exciting time to be part of Lawrence Schools.
