Dear Laurel Families,
I would like to highlight our Project Cornerstone program. This program was developed by the YMCA of Silicon Valley and was brought to Laurel last year. Through the monthly picture books that are shared by our parent volunteers and the support of teachers and staff to reinforce the book's message in the classroom, Project Cornerstone helps build important skills in students such as empathy, friendship, and caring to create a positive place for students to learn. Thanks to our parent leaders-Jenny McPherson, Barbara Sibley and Aileen Snodgrass, our reading volunteers, staff and parents, this program is making a difference in the lives of our Laurel students.
Our featured book for the month of September is Friends to the End-For Kids by Bradley Trevor Grieve. Ask your child what he/she learned about friendship after hearing this book.
Once again,I would like to thank all of you who are making sure that your child/ren are at school on time. It is making a difference in your child's learning.
Lori Fukumoto, Principal
