School Supply List

Please click here for the recommended school supply list for all grade levels.  We appreciate the generosity of our families in making sure that all students are prepared for the upcoming school year!

Save Those Box Tops!


Keep bringing in those boxtops!  Be sure to include your child's name and room number, if you send the boxtops in baggies.  The money raised helps to buy new playground balls and other equipment.  Way to go Leopards!

Visitors / Volunteers on Campus

Please be sure to sign in at the office if you are volunteering in the classroom or need to visit the school for any reason, aside from picking up or dropping off a student.  If possible, make all doctor and dentist appointments before or after school hours.

Notification System


We are currently using the SchoolMessenger communication system to send important announcements to you.  SchoolMessenger offers you the ability to determine how you would like to receive the different types of messages.  If you would like to receive messages in a different manner (different phone number, additional phone number, email, text, etc.) please call Shannon Ames (714) 990-7533 at the District Office to make those changes.

Recycling Opportunity

All PAPER wanted!  This year tell all family and friends to save their old newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail, etc.  All paper (except anything associated with food) will be accepted.  Bag or box your papers and bring them to your child's class or simply drop them in our brown paper recycling dumpster.  The dumpster is located next to the blue trash dumpsters adjacent to the cafeteria and Day Care Room.  For every 2,000 lbs. we collect, the school will receive $90, so start saving.  We will also continue collecting ink cartridges and cell phones.  Please call the office if you have any questions.

Leopard News

Welcome Back Leopards!

 

My name is Heather Bojorquez (pronounced bo-HOR-quez) and I am excited to be your new principal. I look forward to getting to know each student, staff member and family. It is my goal this school year to build relationships, be visible, and continue to work together to continue PAWSitive progress at Laurel. In everything we do, Leopard staff and students will demonstrate PAWS.

 

Leopards will:

Pursue Excellence

Always Think First

Work Hard

Show Kindness

 

Part of our pursuit of excellence includes offering rigorous learning opportunities for all students. Over the course of the year, staff will continue to explore meaningful ways to enhance instruction with the Common Core State Standards and embed 21st Century learning skills and strategies.

 

Your children are served by an amazing group of staff and teachers. We will continue to progress forward to ensure that your children are prepared for their next steps, while developing a life-long love of learning and wonder. Together we will make PAWSitive Progress!

 

Please be sure to say hello as you see me outside during the first days of school. You can contact me via email as well at hbojorquez@bousd.us.

8:00 a.m. Second Bell is when school officially begins.  If your child arrives after this bell, he/she will be marked tardy.

 

In order to ensure you child arrives to school on time, please make arrangements to arrive on campus by 7:45 a.m.

 

Thank you in advance for being on time and making it a priority with your student. 

Laurel Shines in Elementary Academic Pentathlon


Laurel's 6th Grade Academic Pentathlon Team rocked the house at the Orange County Dept. of Education awards ceremony.  We had a record-breaking team with 56 individual medals earned.  The team received 1st Place for the Super Quiz and 2nd Place in the Overall Team category.  There were 12 schools in our division.  Congratulations to Pentathlon Team members Chris Botello, Felix Gaeta, Azeem Horani, Carson Kaiser, JiSoo Kim, Abraham Lara, Amy Ramirez, Kaileen Santos, and Daisy Serna.  Great job Leopards!

A special thank you to Ms. Berrner for all of her hard work in teaching and coaching our team to victory.  Under her leadership, Laurel's Pentathlon team gathered to practice after school once or twice a week and nearly every Saturday since November!

Street Sweeping -- Parking Alert!

Street sweeping on Flower Avenue is on Thursdays.  We are permitted to park anywhere along the east curb (the school side) other than the Bus Loading Zone.  The City has assured us that sweeping on the east side will be done around 7:00 a.m. so as not to interfere with our school traffic.  Please avoid parking on the west side (the business side) of Flower as sweeping will be done on that side later in the day, and you could be cited. 

Doggie Ordinance

As per Orange County Ordinance 4-1-46 "No person having the charge of any dog except a guide dog or service dog shall permit the dog to be, under any circumstances, within public school property."  It is unlawful to be on any public school property with your dog.  Many families may not appreciate this news.  However, due to the safety of all students and owners' liability, it is important for all to abide.  Please leave all pets at home.

Alley Parking

Traffic in the back alley has become a concern, especially in the mornings from 7:45 - 8:00 a.m.  We ask ALL parents to enter on Birch and drive out toward Imperial.  Laurel families should never drive toward Birch or park in the alley.  Please be advised there is NO parking allowed in the alley.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
