I would like to thank all the parents that supported our school uniform policy we reinstated in January. While last year, we were flexible with students and families that did not wear their uniforms. This year, we will expect each child to wear their uniform every day. Students that wear their uniforms regularly will earn privileges and rewards throughout the year. However, students that choose not to wear the uniforms on a regular basis will lose privileges such attending class field trips. Our school community partner, the Assistance League of North County, will once again provide free uniforms for families in need this year. 

Quisiera agradecer a todos los padres que apoyaron nuestro reglamento de uniforme escolar que reestablecimos en Enero. Mientras el año pasado fuimos flexible con estudiantes y familias que no usaron su uniforme. Este año, esperaremos que cada niño/a use su uniforme cada día. Estudiantes que usan sus uniformes regularmente ganaran privilegios y premios a través del año. Sin embargo, estudiantes que eligen no usar los uniformes regularmente perderán privilegios tales como asistir a paseos escolares. Nuestro compañero comunitario escolar, la Assistance League of North County, volverá a nuevamente proveer uniformes gratis a familias en necesidad este año.

Below are a few of many benefits school reports and studies have shown associated with school uniforms:

  • Uniforms reduce tardiness and increase attendance.
  • Uniforms reduce suspensions and discipline referrals among students.
  • Uniforms increase school pride, unity, and a renewed commitment to the school.
  •  Uniforms promote a more professional tone at school, encouraging students to take their studies more seriously. 
  • Uniforms at school also reduce the prevalence of violence.

Uniforms promote school safety and enhance the learning environment, and diminish the clothing competition reducing bullying.

Debajo hay unos cuantos de los beneficios que han demostrado reportes escolares y estudios asociados con uniformes escolares:

  • Uniformes reducen tardanzas y aumentan ausencias.
  • Uniformes reducen suspensiones y referencias de disciplina entre estudiantes.
  • Uniformes aumentan orgullo escolar, unidad, y un compromiso renovado a la escuela.
  • Uniformes promocionan un tono más profesional a la escuela, animando a estudiantes a tomar sus estudios más seriamente. 
  • Uniformes en la escuela también reducen la prevalencia de violencia.

Laurel Summer Community Day, July 14th-Thank you to Everyone!!!

summer reading.jpg
On behalf of the entire Laurel staff, we can't begin to express how thankful we are for the role each of you played in our Summer Community Reading Day. The special day was truly a "Community" event. 
 
We had nearly 200 hundred Laurel families attend!- students, mothers, fathers, abuelitas-grandmothers,  tios-uncles, older siblings, younger siblings, tias-aunts, and family friends. And, we had nearly 40 staff and volunteers support the event. This special event was made possible solely by the generous donations of our community partners and volunteers and would not have taken place if it wasn't for the time all our volunteers dedicated for our students and families.
 
Thank you again for making Reading a priority-Reading Matters!!!

Laurel Summer Community Day-huge Success!!!
