Message from the Principal

 Welcome to the Henry W. Lawton Elementary School website!

From Ms Imes:

Hello Lawton Families!

I would like to thank all Lawton students, parents, and community members for making my 1st year at Lawton Elementary a pleasant and successful experience. I am looking forward to even bigger and better accomplishments next year.

Remember to read a good book or two and practice those math skills you've learned this year. On our Student page you will find a supply list for next year. Look for those sale ads in July.

I would also like to wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer vacation but most importantly I'd like to say, "Be Happy!"

School Year 2014-2015

The school office is closed during the summer.

In past years, the School District has opened school offices for registration the last 2 weeks in August. At this time, we are unsure if the office will be staffed then. If you need to register a child, please call Lawton at 215-335-5659 between 9:00am and 1:00pm the week of August 18th to see if staff are present.

 

The 1st day for students in Grades 1-5 will be September 8th.

Kindergarten students will begin on September 15th. Kindergarten parents will be contacted by teachers to bring their child in for a visit and pre-testing during the week of September 8th. 

Safety of Our Students is a Priority

Photo ID Required-Please be sure that you have a photo ID available whenever you pick up your child from school.You will be asked to show it at early dismissal, late pick up, or if a Kindergarten teacher is absent.
