All the cool cats will be at the first Literary Luncheon of the 2015-2016 school year.  On Wednesday, September 2, book lovers should grab their lunches and come on down to the ER East (203).  We'll talk about all the great books we've read this summer and books that we can't wait to get our paws on this fall!

 

Bulldog book lovers, your time has almost arrived!  Please join Ms. Lotton-Barker, Mrs. Nitz, and Ms. Williams in Mrs. Nitz's room (811) next Tuesday, September 8 after school to plan our first semester book choices.  At that time you can also pick up your Renaissance themed book.  Our annual trip to the Renaissance Festival in conjunction with book club will be Sunday, October 4.

 

Hello Bulldogs!  We are ready to start our theater season.  Auditions for  The Fall Production The Grimm Sisters, start today! Sign up for a day to audition Monday-Thursday this week on the board outside the theater.   You only need to attend 1 day of auditions. There are tons of roles in this show and lots of behind the scenes opportunities.  The fall production is open to ALL SW students so bring a friend.  All forms are available in the theater from Mrs. Neuteboom.  If you want to be on stage only or on stage and part of a crew, pick up a blue Audition form.

  • Kansas regulations require that districts develop and implement written policies to govern the use of Emergency Safety Interventions in all schools.  Emergency Safety Intervention (ESI) is defined as seclusion and restraint that is used when the student presents an immediate danger to self or others.  Lawrence Public School’s Board of Education adopted an ESI policy (GAAF) on October 28, 2013 which is available on the district's website.  The policy will also be available on the building websites and online handbooks as of November 14, 2014. If you need a hard copy of the ESI policy, please contact your building principal.
