    Posted September 9, 2014

    Learning @ Lab is a group for parents concerned about their kid's learning differences, or social/emotional/medical issues and how they impact learning and success at school. This year we have suspended monthly morning meetings and hope to schedule evening meetings on focused topics. Please submit any ideas by email to Laura Lambert.


YOU are the Parents' Association!

All Lab parents and guardians are automatically members of our Parents' Association, the goal of which is to foster community throughout the Schools.

The PA sponsors many events and activities that further this effort and we invite you to get involved in any manner that fits your schedule or interest.

Attend an event, volunteer for an hour, or participate on a longer-term project. Learn more about each division and how you can get involved or volunteer:

We also hope you will join us at PA meetings this year, to hear a range of dynamic speakers we have invited to the schools to engage and educate our broad community. Our first meeting will be October 6th in Earl Shapiro Hall, with a reception at 6:30pm and meeting at 7:00. We will hear from School Administrators about their outlook and plans for the year ahead.
