District Events

The Lancers' JROTC, National Honor Society and the Wetherbee school participated in the 18th Annual Spicket River Cleanup. They collected trash that was left near the river and in our playgrounds. They learned the importance of keeping our waterways clean and maintaining a safe place for children to play. Some of LPS students have joined this Groundwork event for multiple years. Great job keeping Lawrence clean.

The Superintendent and the Family Engagement Team would like to express our most sincere gratitude to all of you for your attendance and participation during the September Presidents’ Council meeting Tue. The event was a great success! Students, parents, educators, and administrators came together to welcome our new superintendent and to highlight ongoing practices within the LPS. We also want to express our thanks to Dr. Toomey, who provided an update on Standards Based Grading and Reporting Grades K-8.
