UPL Last Day of School


Wednesday, June 21, 2017


This month the school hosted a Volunteer Day. Teachers, parents, and staff joined forces to make some beautiful changes to our school. Some changes included paining the stairs, fixing some doors, and adding these wonderful paws to the ground floor of the building.


The UP Leonard School community got out to support their community and get some exercise in the recent Greenway 5K for Groundwork Lawrence. They had a great 5K team and enjoyed the route along the Spicket River Greenway that now ends at the new Ferrous Park near the UP Leonard campus. Way to stay healthy UP Leonard!

UP Leonard students, staff and parents received congratulations from their Principal and enjoyed a performance from their steppers. Great effort everyone at UP Leonard.

The Up Leonard got a makeover thanks to more than 30 volunteers from Boston Cares and Fidelity Investments.

Outside they did yard work, added 30ft racing lanes for kids, built and painted new benches and painted the side of the school Teal the official school color.

Inside they brightened up the teachers lounge with some fresh paint and created a 3D model of the Periodic Table of Elements.

Please be aware, Lawrence Public Schools is preparing for weather emergencies. In an effort to safeguard our students and staff, LPS will be implementing two new weather-related policies:
  • 2-Hour Delayed Opening for Students
  • Early Dismissal for Students
If the Superintendent implements either of these policies, staff and students will be notified by:
local media outlets(TV and radio), Connect Ed message to your home, and the LPS website.
