Stay Connected with ParentSquare
MSD of Lawrence Township uses ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. We encourage parents to access their accounts so they can download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.
We promise to only send you information closely related to school. You can opt-out at anytime. Contact your child's school for more information about opting-out from our communications.
WHY WE ARE HERE
The Lawrence North PFO supports our teachers and students in these two main ways:
- Planning and hosting teacher appreciation and hospitality events
- Supporting the academic excellence of all students by providing funding for academic support (e.g. funding paid tutors at the “After-MAC” so that all of our students have access to free tutoring after school)
We raise funds via a donation drive (see information below), selling spirit wear, and collecting Box Tops.
We recognize that everyone is busier in high school and many families already support Lawrence North in other ways (sports team boosters, performing arts, clubs, etc.). But the PFO still welcomes and needs your help however you can – by donating items, helping at an event, or serving on a committee.
President – Dr. Jill Kramer
Vice President – Ms. Tina Gridiron
Treasurer – Ms. Alysha Guidry
Secretary – Ms. Jennifer Guimont
CAMPAIGN FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE DONATION DRIVE
Lawrence North's PFO is committed to supporting the academic achievement of all LN students. This will be our third year of a new donation drive to fund the Campaign for Academic Excellence. Our goal is to raise $7,500 this school year to provide academic resources--such as after-school tutoring in the MAC, SAT/ACT preparation classes, and teacher grants - to support our students and staff. A suggested donation amount is $20 per student, but any amount is welcome and appreciated.

Spirit Wear--Available every day in the LN Bookstore!
What better way to promote school spirit than with the latest spirit wear. Classic spirit wear items will be available at certain school events (Orientations, Schedule Pick-Up days, Back to School Nights, etc.) and will also be sold daily in the LN bookstore. Additional items will be available via periodic online sales events – information on how to order will be communicated via the Sunday night phone call.
After the first two weeks of school, we welcome your visit to your child's classroom. Pre-arranged classroom visits by parents are encouraged and welcomed.
We also welcome parents to come and eat lunch with their student in the All Star Cafe. Parents may either eat hot lunch from the cafeteria or bring a sack lunch from home. Please do not bring in food from a restaurant for you and your child.
All visitors should sign in at the office and wear a guest or volunteer badge.
For your child's safety and education, we cannot allow parents to just walk into the classroom unexpectedly. Thank you for your support in providing a safe environment for our children.
All visitors to school buildings are required to complete a SafeSolutions background check upon entry.
- All visitors must report to the school office to provide identification, sign in, and receive a visitor’s badge before entering the school.

- Volunteers are welcomed and appreciated. A wide variety of opportunities are available at your child’s school. Please check with your child’s school or teacher to learn more about the volunteering opportunities.
