Dear Lower Lab Community,
The past two days have been amazing for me, because I had the help of two fantastic “principals for the day,” Jonah Peirez, a fifth grader, and Kamila Cardozo Kalvinskaite , a second grader. They worked diligently, welcoming students and parents at the door, doing lunch duty, visiting classrooms, writing emails, and sharing the Lower Lab Values color and buttons with every class. They also joined other students and staff members for a delicious executive lunch, during which they shared their thoughts about our school. When asked what they thought about the responsibilities of a principal, they both said it was hard work but fun. I could not agree more!!!!!
Amazing victory – 2nd place at Chess Nationals – way to go Lower Lab team!!!
Please join me in wishing our chess team GOOD LUCK as they compete at Nationals this weekend in Nashville!
Live… Love… Lab
Since Spring Break, a lot has been happening here at Lower Lab (certainly as usual – but I thought I’d share). Children in all grades are busy finishing up projects, writing in many genres, debating, practicing for the Orchestra Concert on May 16th and getting ready for the BIG Science Fair on June 12th. Thankfully, our upper grade students are also finished with their state math exams.
Many trips are planned across the grades as well, including our fabulous overnight to Rocking Horse Ranch for our 5thgrade and a day trip to Philadelphia for our 4thgraders. Middle School acceptances are in and our 5thgraders did very well, with 96% getting their first or second choice district school.
You are probably well aware how awesome the weather has been and Lower Lab students have been absolutely gleeful outside this week, in spite of the construction scaffolding. This project is well underway with completion expected by summer’s end.
Our next Lower Lab Values assembly is next Friday morning – during which we celebrate our learning around Courtesy. Stay tuned for the “color” to be announced on Wednesday.
Enjoy the outdoors, and always, Live…Love…Lab!
Lower Lab does it again!
Seven of our girls in first and second grade took 1st place at the All-Girls National Tournament in Chicago. Please join me in congratulating the winners and their families, and of course Coach Logan, on this fantastic success!
The team members are:
