NEW this year: Math Club for K-2!
2nd & 4th Mondays of every month (excluding holidays)
3:45-4:45, Room 3
The Purpose of Math Club is to develop students’ level of Math skills and knowledge. This will be accomplished by using fun games and activities. Students will work cooperatively in teams and to start our club will be using the Zeno Math Power Data Gathering Curriculum! Math Club will also support classroom learning.
Math Club will meet two Mondays most every month, with our first meeting on Monday, September 28. Please return the attached registration form by Wednesday September 23 to your student’s teacher or email to Beth Cogan @ [email protected]. Registration is open to all Kindergarten, First and Second Grade Students. We will need to cap the number to the first 24 registrants for space and supervision concerns.
Students will be picked up by their parent at 4:45 in room 3 or be brought to LASER Childcare if they are enrolled there. Please remember this is not a babysitting service. Club members are expected to attend as often as they can, participate in scheduled activities and behave as wonderful Laurelhurst Students!

Be part of the PTA’s Reflections Program! Entries from all grades and all abilities welcome.
The theme this year is….
‘Let Your Imagination Fly’
The PTA provides the following tools to help make participation in this National PTA and WSPTA Cultural Arts Competition fun and easy for students and parents alike.
The form for signing up will be available in the library for parents to pick up and children who are interested will also be able to take a form home after the Creative Workshop.
Students will have the opportunity to explore ideas about this year’s program theme, ‘Let Your Imagination Fly’ with the one and only Mr. Brown during their classroom Library time. There will be a worksheet available for their use to support them in organizing their thoughts and exploring ways they might express themselves. If you would like to assist in your child’s class during this library time please let me know (see email below).
We will preassemble basic material packets, at no cost to families, for each category to go home with your kids once they are signed up.
Sign-up forms should be returned to the library, packets will be available to be picked up from the library and final artwork will be submitted to the library.
Creative Workshops/Sign-up Forms – September 21-25
Sign-up Due – September 28
