Join us for The Breakfast (Book) Club, a new event at Lawrence School on Friday, May 13th. The event, which will be held from 8:00-9:00 am in the library, offers parents and teachers a chance to come together and talk about raising children in today’s world and to enjoy a breakfast catered by the PTO.
Guests will have the opportunity to discuss one of two books, Raising Cain by Michael Thompson or Odd Girl Out by Rachel Simmons. (see Amazon links below) Both authors are scheduled to speak as part of the Brookline PTO Speaker Series in the spring. Michael Thompson will be speaking on April 12th and Rachel Simmons will be speaking on May 11th.
Title One has generously offered to purchase copies of both books; 10 copies of each book will be available in the Lawrence library.
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.
