Welcome back to another school year full of adventure! Laurel Yellow Jackets will be pursuing Destination Awesomeness during the 2019-20 school year. We will begin the year with a tight focus on our Jacket Traits. We will revisit and encourage all of our Jacket Traits: integrity, diligence, fairness, courage, responsibility, respect, caring, citizenship, honesty, and trustworthiness, promoting these throughout the school year. As we pursue awesomeness during the school year our Jacket Traits will serve as the foundation for great learning. We will use our strengths and the progress we made in our previous year to achieve greatness at LES in the 2019-20 school year. 


We will kick off Destination Awesomeness at our Open House scheduled for Tuesday, August 6 from 5:30 P.M. – 7 P.M. All students attending will receive their Destination Awesomeness t-shirts at that time. We will continue our journey to Awesomeness as we represent Laurel School in our annual homecoming parade on September 20. More specific information to be shared later. We invite our students, families, and staff to come join us as we defend our 1st place tradition for school spirit. We will work together to create our float with our theme, Destination Awesomeness! 


In the pursuit of awesomeness each classroom will begin the year with setting goals based on MAP scores in August. As a class, teachers and students will work together to determine a class growth goal. In addition, students will set personal goals for growth during the 1st semester. Students and teachers will work throughout the semester to meet those goals as they pursue Destination Awesomeness! Please ask your child about the goals set both personally and within his/her classroom and encourage them to work hard.
