Morning Drop Off

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 12.48.12 AMDear Lower Lab Families,

Morning arrival is in full swing however the administration and staff are experiencing a bit of congestion at the door from 8:00-8:15. Please follow the  guidelines below to expedite arrivals.

  • Students may enter beginning at 8:00AM.
  •  Kindergarten and 1st Grade Families: In order to eliminate congestion, adults must remain outside and children will enter the threshold independently and proceed to their line spots. (The staff and administration at the door will assist students and the morning greeters will escort children upstairs.)
  • “Goodbye kisses and hugs” on the sidewalk please,  not right in front of the doorway!
  • Safety First!  Remind your children that once they enter the building they must not try to exit.  If they have forgotten something (backpack, violin, lunch) children should approach  and alert a staff member at the door. A staff member will exit the building and find the departing parent to retrieve missing items.
  • Please make an effort to be on-time.  Teachers are collecting their classes from the auditorium at exactly 8:15.  There are several students who are consistantly arriving after 8:15.
  • If an adult must enter the building for school related business, please have a photo ID available for the security agent.

Thank You for your continued support!

Here is the 77 Top 7 List of ways you can prepare…
#7- Buy your tickets now! Discount advance ticket fliers went home last week. Fall Fair is a pay-by-tickets event, you can’t pay cash for food, snacks, or activities. Tickets will be $1 each at the door, in advance they are discounted as much as 30%! (cash/checks/credit are accepted to purchase more tickets, raffles, and Lab Gear). Click here for the flier#6Win an iPad Mini...we can’t promise you will win, but you can try as many times as you like. Raffle tickets are $10 each, with an advance discount of 4 for $25! (They will be $10 day of). Click here for the flier.

#5- Bake or donate some treats. Home made goodies are a highlight of our snack sale, but water, juice, chips…any snack (nut/gluten free are awesome!) is a welcome addition to feed the masses! Due to storage, snacks and baked goods are best dropped off the day of the Fall Fair, but not earlier than Friday 9/19 in the main office. If you have questions contact Lauren Segal.
(note- the flier sent home had an incorrect drop off date! It is 9/19, not the 27th). Click here for the flier.
#4Sponsor-a-Booth! A donation as small as $25 can help us to defray the costs of the event, Donations over $100 will earn you 25 tickets (and a tax deduction too!). Use the ticket form to sponsor a booth.#3Get ready to show your Lower Lab school spirit! Lab Gear will be available for sale at the Fall Fair. Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted for Lab Gear sales.

#2- Support your grade! Every grade is responsible for 2 activities. Fall Fair representatives are hard at work collecting donations for booth supplies, and looking for volunteers. Helping at a grade booth is a terrific way to meet other Lab Families, and teach kids about giving back and helping within your community!

And, the #1 way to prepare for the Fall Fair is…
Get ready to HAVE FUN! We have a great day planned…fresh grilled barbecue, mini-golf, face painting, prizes, treats, and more… 
…of course, please remember volunteers are needed in areas besides grade booths. This is truly a community-wide endeavor and we need people to help sell tickets, staff the snack and cafe areas, show off their grilling skills, and help out with the before and after. Anyone can help out- recruit friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles…Click HERE to sign up.
We also need a few large coolers for food storage. We promise to return them washed and clean. If you can lend a cooler, contact Stacy or Yael.
If you have any questions, contact Stacy or Yael
