Principal Bama CowardLawndale Elementary School’s mission is to prepare every student for success beyond high school.  In order to achieve that goal, Lawndale’s staff works to teach students in a workshop structure.  This model asks students to take charge of their own learning, becoming active and engaged in their work and development of understanding.  Using workshop allows teachers to be actively engaged with students individually or with small groups, facilitating and assisting in that understanding, while also providing individualized support.  Students who are engaged in the workshop model are actively learning the material and concepts they need to master throughout the year.

Using this model, students experience foundational academics blended with a dynamic curriculum and enrichment opportunities that develop them as 21st century thinkers, communicators, collaborators and contributors. 

Teachers review student work daily to identify what the challenges are for students as they work to master skills and strategies, and as we assess our data teachers provide differentiated—targeted—instruction to each student based on the student's skills and needs.

In addition to academics, the staff at Lawndale provides opportunities for students to participate in activities that allow students to contribute to our community.  For example, we participate in the food drive, we collect gently used toys and other items for Evelyn Rivers, and older students are reading buddies to younger students.  Our 5th grade students partner with Happy State Bank and learn to be tellers as younger students learn the habit of saving money for the future.

Lawndale also considers the whole child by offering some after school clubs to meet needs of students who are getting all their work accomplished, have good behavior, and good attendance.  

We value our partnership with parents and have many events to share with families including Discovery Center partnership where every Lawndale family receives a free family membership.  We have many other opportunities for families to be involved in their student’s learning at school.  We know that “Teaching without parents is like clapping with one hand.”  

If there is anything we can do for you or your student, please feel free to contact the school office at 806-326-4700.
