Dear Lawrence Families,
Happy New Year!
I don’t know if your family likes to set goals on New Year’s. My family does. We each write 5 goals we’d like to accomplish for the upcoming year and review the five goals we set last year (we keep them in a special place). We set goals we feel we can accomplish and some “reach” goals, those that will be harder. An important part of this process is to identify the 2-5 action steps you must take to achieve each goal. The famous football coach, Lou Holtz, wrote a list of 100 things he wanted to accomplish over his life. While this is a different take on setting yearly goals it can be a valuable exercise and a road map for the future. However you choose to set your goals, I believe that goal setting is an important part of how we achieve our hopes and dreams. I encourage you to start with what makes sense for you and to have fun!

Starting February 6, 2017 Lawrence will join the other Public Schools of Brookline in using an automated phone system for attendance calls.
