STUDENT PHOTOS/VIDEOS AVAILABLE ONLINE – MORE ADDED ALL THE TIME

There are photos and some videos of class and school activities posted on SmugMug for parents to view. SmugMug is a password protected photo sharing site that does not use content for any other purpose. Teachers may have shared their individual viewing links with you, but to access all galleries, you can click here and use the password H0rnets! (that's a zero, not an O). Galleries are organized by homeroom as well as subjects and other activities. Photos can be downloaded from the download link for free; however, we ask that photos not be posted on any other website. Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy the photos! Photos from the 2016-2017 school year will be removed at the end of June, so don’t miss out.

 

EASY END OF YEAR TEACHER/STAFF THANK YOU GIFTS

One of PTO's final initiatives for the year is the management of the End of Year Teacher/Staff gifting. The end result is a cumulative monetary purse from all participating families, which will be given to the respective teachers/staff in the form of a monetary gift card. The intention is to acknowledge all of our teachers/staff, while keeping it easy and affordable for parents. This year, the process will be slightly different, but hopefully much easier – we are adding technology and the teacher or staff member will still receive the monetary gifts by the last week of school. PTO will also make sure teachers/staff know who donated to their purse! Please go to: www.laurelhall.org/parents/EOYgifts to fill out the form and handle payment. {Note: Best to use on a computer or iPad as formatting holds better...} If you’d prefer to use a hard copy form, please visit the school office to pick up a form and drop off payment. Deadline to "gift" (a.k.a Use the online form) is Friday, 5/26 by 10:00pm as this will ensure we can get everything finalized on time! Your participation is voluntary.You are not obligated to participate and may recognize teachers and/or staff individually if you wish.

 

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

All grades dismiss at 12:30pm on Friday, 5/26. There is no EDP available that day - campus closes at 12:45pm for the weekend. There will be no school or EDP and all offices are closed for the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, 5/29. Have a great weekend!

 

LOVE LAUREL HALL - BUY SCRIP CARDS

Scrip cards are gift cards that raise money for Laurel Hall. We’ll be here next Friday, right inside the walk-in gate off of Oxnard. Laurel Hall gets a percent of all sales, which means you are raising money for the school while you shop and scrip cards make great presents too!! We only have a small inventory left so stop by to see what we have. There will not be any more bulk orders placed so what we have in inventory is it. Get them before they are gone!!

 

*SUPPORT LAUREL HALL AT FORMER LH STUDENT BOOK SIGNING, 6/3*

Varak Kaloustian, a recent graduate of Laurel Hall, was inspired by our great middle school English teachers to write, and at 15 years old publish his first science fiction novel, The Solar System’s Prophecies. Because of the success of his debut novel, Varak was invited to have a book signing at the Studio City Barnes & Noble for his newly released second novel, Triangle Corruption. When asked which school he would like to donate 20% of the proceeds to, Varak naturally chose Laurel Hall. On Saturday, 6/3, from 1:00-3:00pm, Varak Kaloustian will be having a book signing at Barnes & Noble Bookstar, 12136 Ventura Blvd, Studio City. Click here for more information.
