    You will be receiving links for the 2023 Successful Schools Survey in just a few days. We are hoping that ALL families will participate in the survey. By participating in the survey, you are letting us know how we as a school are doing in key areas such as community engagement, communication, school climate, and school safety. Your feedback is extremely important to us! Students in grades 3-8 will also be completing the survey during class. Click here for more information about the survey and how the results are used.


    We’ve had a steady decline in lunch volunteers this school year, and we would love to see more of you in the cafeteria with our students! On popular lunch days (pizza, popcorn chicken), we see lunch lines so long that some of our students only get 5 or 10 minutes to eat their lunch! More helping hands helps our lunches go smoothly and safely. Sign up for a shift (or two or three!) here.


    The American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge program will be kicking off with an all-school assembly on Thursday, February 2nd. This year, we’ll be running the program a bit differently. Rather than have students win “Thank You Gifts" (keychains, toys, jump ropes etc.) from the American Heart Association, we will be working towards a school goal all together as a team. Our school goal is to raise $10,000 to support the American Heart Association.


    We will have fun experiences for the students along the way as they learn about heart health and helping others.


    Special School Incentives:

    1. Any student that registers and picks their challenge to Be Active or Be Kind will earn a Be The Torch Wristband!

    2. The class with the most participation will earn a Free Choice PE!

    3. And any student that completes Finn’s Mission will get to silly string Mr. Lewis and Ms. Martin!

    4. If we reach our school goal of $10,000 we will have a special field day for our K-5 students!


    We encourage every student and family to register online to learn Hands-Only CPR as a family through FINN’S MISSION.

    This Thursday marks the end of the second quarter. Teachers will be working on Progress Reports / Grades on Friday, January 27th (REMINDER: Friday is a No School day for students). K- 5 students will bring home their report cards and middle school grades will be posted in Synergy on Friday, February 3rd.

    Dear Laurelhurst families,


    To celebrate the end of first semester, we held a K-5 Kindness Assembly and a 6-8 Bonanza celebration on Thursday. It is so wonderful to see all of our elementary students gathered together, listening, singing and signing songs, and simply having fun together! Our middle school Kindness club did an excellent job of facilitating the assembly.


    Our middle school students also celebrated by participating in several different games and activities in the afternoon, including Karaoke, Kahoot, Mafia and Bingo! Hearing laughter, singing, and heated trivia discussion in our middle school hallways makes me smile and reminds me of how important it is to celebrate our school community.


    This year, 2023, marks the 100th year of Laurelhurst School. We have many ideas to celebrate this milestone. First, in honor of the 100th school day (February 16th) of Laurelhurst's 100th year, we will be having Spirit Week leading up to the big day! More details will be coming out as we get closer. We can't wait to celebrate!


    • Monday, February 13th - Favorite Team Day! (Share your love of any “team”: sports jerseys or team uniforms/hats, favorite video game or show, high school/college, hobby like chess or Magic, etc.)

    • Tuesday, February 14th - Red/Pink/White for Valentine's Day! We will have heart stickers for anyone who wants on the playground in the morning

    • Wednesday, February 15th - Funky Hair Day! We will have materials available on the playground if students need or forget.

    • Thursday, February 16th - School Pride Day in honor of the 100th Day of the 100th Year! Wear your school colors (blue/gold) or your Laurelhurst swag.


    We will continue to share our plans for celebrating our 100th!
