Look to the Stars (It’s Your Lawrence Horoscope!)
This year’s star-themed Annual Appeal is inspired by our superstar students: bright in so many ways, beautiful even when distant, connected by our shared stories. We’ve highlighted the teachers shedding new light through innovation, the parent volunteerism guiding our course to better days, and our power as Lawrence families to make meaningful contributions that help it all shine even brighter.
I know what you’re thinking: Sure, but what do the stars mean for my weekend plans? Say no more. Scroll down and find your weekend outlook, courtesy of the Lawrence Astrological Society.*

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The weekend looks bright for passionate Scorpio, whose hunger for facts has been richly satisfied by PTO emails during the week. Now to turn that legendary resourcefulness to dreaming up family fun and a Thanksgiving menu with double pie…right after making a donation to the Lawrence Legacy Fund.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Generous Sagittarius knows that donating to the PTO is the perfect way to lead into a weekend of outdoor adventure. For tamer Sags looking for quieter pursuits, Sunday is the best day to curl up with a good book. (An inspiring reminder of the PTO’s support for representation-rich classroom libraries, which benefit from your financial support!)
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Steady, deliberate Capricorn will find opportunities for Thanksgiving planning on Saturday—a productive day for making lists: buy turkey, stock up on Lysol wipes, donate to the Lawrence Legacy Fund! Musical Capricorns may be inspired by the PTO’s recent grant for individual music kits, which let Lawrence K-5 students toot, bang, and dance without sharing germs.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Future-focused Aquarius agrees with Whitney: The children are our future. For those Aquarians who also wanna dance with somebody, this weekend may see a revival of dance routines from the PTO’s Fall Together virtual event—and the video tutorial here. Support our children and PTO dance tutorials with a gift to the Lawrence Legacy Fund!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Artistic pursuits delight creative Pisces this weekend, inspired by the PTO’s funding for take-home art kits. It’s the perfect time to peek at your child’s at-home art portfolio, and share an hour creating together! According to the stars, Sunday is the best day to help fund art programs and supply scholarships for Lawrence families in need with your Lawrence Legacy Fund gift.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries is known for taking on challenges without flinching—and this is the ideal weekend to take on some new ones. Race the kids around the block? On it. Try a new recipe? Don’t mind if I do. Help the PTO reach its fundraising goals? Couldn’t be easier! Just click here and show those other star signs who’s boss.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Aries may think they’re got fundraising in the bag, but Taurus is never one to be outshined! Show them up with your own donation to the Lawrence Legacy Fund, which will satisfy the Taurean yen for responsible stewardship…and also prove that the bull is king.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
A walk around the Lawrence neighborhood feeds the Gemini soul, offering a refreshing breeze, beautiful scenery, and another look at those compelling fundraising signs in front of school. Gemini is known for communication…so after making your donation, snap a pic of the signs and share on your social networks!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Warm and welcoming, Cancer folks are all about community. Missing out on Fall Picnic probably feels extra tough to these social beings…but the weekend feels brighter after a quick donation to the Lawrence Legacy Fund, which promotes community in new ways and ensures that in post-vaccine times, the PTO will be well-funded and ready to party!
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Lawrence Leos love the spotlight! In years past you might find them rehearsing for the PTO Play…in 2020, Leo energy is a perfect match for a role as a PTO virtual event chair, reimagining traditional gatherings or creating new ones…and of course for a leading role as a Legacy Fund donor.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Practical Virgo takes stock this weekend: With just a handful of weeks left in the year, are you up to speed on charitable donations for 2020? Now is the time to make a quantifiable difference in the lives of Lawrence students and teachers—by funding increased supply budgets, new technology to make remote learning smoother, and training to help educators adapt to the ever-changing educational landscape.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Diplomatic Libra might want to spend some time this weekend considering PTO leadership roles, which always benefit from harmonious Libra vibes. Co-president? VP Technology? Event chair? Fundraising committee member? An email inquiry is the best way to get started finding out which role is right for you. Here is one we’re certain is right for every Libra: PTO donor!
Whatever the stars say, the PTO says THANK YOU for all you do!
