For the past five years the Bancroft Elementary School in Andover has donated books for the South Lawrence East Elementary School's free bookstore at our Literacy Nights. On Wednesday, April 12th, third grade EL after school program hosted the Bancroft School's third grade Brownie troop to build bunnies and enjoy Girl Scout Cookies. In addition, students from the Lawrence High School National Honor Society assisted in the activity. We thank the students from the Bancroft School for their generosity towards our SLEES community.
On Wednesday, January 25, third, fourth and fifth grade students from the South Lawrence East Elementary School participated in the third annual Health and Fitness Field Trip Day sponsored by Align Credit Union, Circle Health and Collins Dentistry for Children at UMass Lowell. The women's basketball team played UNH at the Tsongas Center before a crowd of 4,192. While the UNH Wild Cats defeated the UMass River Hawks, students were nonetheless entertained by the game and the half time Zumba. The theme of the day was to make smart decisions and make healthy lifestyle choices. A fun day was had by all.
