This note is the first eNews of the 2019 - 2020 academic year:

"Welcome back!"

Linked here is a letter from our new Parents' Association Chair Maria Beck , which we hope will help you become better acquainted with the PA. We have also linked a note from Raquel Majeski, LA's dean of equity and community affairs about Lawrence Academy's Lawrence Academy Mentorship Program ( L.A.M.P.)

Then, be sure to peruse our Lawrence Academy Parents' Association (LAPA) Info Sheet - this one-page PDF gives you quick access to dates and details.

A note from the Academic Office: Thank you for your patience as class schedules are released. While schedules continued to be published, they remain in draft form. Your students are able to order the required books for their classes. However, they need to note that their assigned blocks may shift as we finalize all student schedules. We have been told that books will arrive on time but, either way, teachers will be flexible should a delay occur. Again, we appreciate the community's understanding as we work to ensure balance and thought for each of our student's classroom experience. The Veracross Implementation Team
