    New Administrative Assistant

    Cordley Families, we wish to thank you for all of your patience and understanding as we worked to hire a new person for the front office. We are excited to share that we have hired Ann Reaney for the administrative assistant position. Ann has previously worked at LMH and as an administrative assistant for a local artist. She is thrilled to be joining our school and is looking forward to getting to know you and your child(ren) over the next few weeks. Please join me in welcoming Ann to our Cordley community!

    I’m super excited to announce our January Honorary Hawk of the Month. This staff member has been seen making personal connections with students. The staff member goes out of their way to give a smile and wave when students are walking by. One student said that she liked how this person actually talks to them and cares about them. This staff member is at Cordley early in the mornings in the freezing cold making our sidewalks and parking lots safe. This staff person goes above and beyond making our school a safe and clean environment.

    The January Honorary Hawk of the Month is...Mr. Romero!!!!

    This Safe Routes to Schools map was made by the City of Lawrence, the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, and Lawrence Public Schools as part of a community-wide effort to show students and parents the safest route to their neighborhood school. We encourage you and your student to use this map for International Walk to School Day on October 7th, 2015—and every day!—and then provide feedback on street conditions, traffic conditions, and the usability of your Safe Route on the link attached.  Additional questions can be sent to ,, or
