We need a few volunteers in February to help Lawton keep its Green School status. This designation is important to the school and signifies to the students that we are doing our best as a school community to protect our environment. The school will kick off a few events such as a waste-free lunch week, “adopting” an endangered species, preparing for Earth Day, and others.
We need help with a few events! Most events are not time-consuming, and can be completed anytime in February. If you have any questions, contact the Garden Committee via the online signup. Thanks for helping Lawton keep this important certification for our students, community and environment!

On February 10, 2017, Lawton Elementary School will be holding a DISABILITY AWARENESS WORKSHOP.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Sign up at:
The Disability Awareness Workshop is a one-day program to teach 4th graders an empathetic understanding of physical, developmental, and learning disabilities. The hands-on-activity based program is designed to help student’s understand how difficult and complex daily living can be for individuals with “Diverse Abilities.” The workshop helps build a culture of understanding that is invaluable, with the goal to learn, through experience, that all individuals deserve respect no matter how they may look, act, walk or talk.
On February 10th all students in 4th grade classes will participate in this full day event. Last year all 21 Elementary schools in Ann Arbor hosted Disability Awareness Workshops for their 4th grade students. We are excited to be offering the program to Lawton students again this year.
Please consider volunteering to help with the workshop. We need at least 23 volunteers to help in the morning (8:40 am – 12:30 pm). Volunteers need only be kind and compassionate, no experience working with people with disabilities is necessary.
Volunteer sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d4ea9aa2fa3f49-disability, or contact Kirsten Lebo-Talusan at email@example.com to volunteer.
Volunteers will be provided easy to follow instructions, via e-mail, prior to the workshop and a brief training upon arrival the morning of the workshop to oversee students as they participate in activities at seven different stations. Videos can also be watched on our website https://sites.google.com/site/aapsdaw/
Volunteers may choose to work at one of the following stations:
Kirsten Lebo-Talusan, Disability Awareness Workshop Chair

After all the hard work obtaining funding and building our wonderful Lawton Learning Garden, the Lawton Garden Committee is seeking at least one parent volunteer from each grade to help plan and brainstorm ways to expand and fully utilize this amazing resource! The students love our garden, but we need more hands on deck to help us maintain and expand on the opportunities presented by this wonderful resource. We hope to increase participation among the parent community to help with more student activities in the garden this year. Some ideas include:
