Principal Search Update. Thanks to everyone who sent in a “letter of intent” to be considered for principal search committee selection.  We received a strong pool of candidates which made it a very difficult decision to make, but at the same time we felt very strong as a community to have involved parents like you.  Lawrence School PTO officers, Board members and some of the School Council members have chosen the parent representatives for the principal search to be as follows:

  • Jin Suk
  • Angela Stone
  • Makeeba McCreary
  • Denise Baumann (SEPAC)

Please stay connected as we will be informing you of dates and times of parent focus groups, which is open to all.  Thank you for your continued support
