We are making paper cranes! To give us and our children a way to voice a positive message of peace, people from all over town are joining together to fold origami peace cranes. A beautiful symbol, the paper crane has a powerful association with peace, the welfare of our children, and opposition to nuclear war. We believe that beyond whatever divisions exist, all politics must come from the foundational principles of peace, kindness, tolerance, and humanity.
We will bring these cranes to Washington DC for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, on January 16th, as a statement of peace, of opposition to nuclear war, and as a wish for all the world to focus itself on the most important things. Several businesses will be folding paper cranes on Brookline’s First Light festival, Thursday December 1st, and others will do the same on other days. Stay tuned for more information.
We hope that other communities will join us, that this message will begin here in Brookline and Boston, take wing and spread around the world.

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 email@example.com to get involved.
