Please join us for Celebrating Teachers is on May 16 at Newbury College at 3:30 p.m. Celebrating Teachers is a wonderful reception at which the BEF announces the year’s teacher, collaborative, and systemwide grant recipients. We will also honor the winners of this year’s Caverly Awards, for excellence in teaching: Dominique Ferdinand (Lawrence Kindergarten) and Betty Strong (BHS Math).
On behalf of the Margaret Metzger Fellowship Committee, we are very pleased to announce the 2017 Metzger Fellows: Liz Exton (Lawrence), Dominique Gonyer (BHS), Jenna Laib (Driscoll), Amy Morrissey (BHS), Jeremy Ward (Lawrence), and Lisa Ziegler-Chamblee (Baker).
Please watch for the kick-off of the BEF Honor-A-Teacher Campaign, a meaningful and much appreciated way to honor teachers at the end of the academic year while supporting the ongoing work of the BEF.
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
