Dear LAS Families:
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! This is the 60th year of learning at Lahore American School. I am excited about the variety and scope of learning opportunities for students this year. Working together with parents enriches the learning process and I am eager to work together to help our children become global citizens and learners.
As always, updated divisional handbooks for the Secondary and Elementary are accessible to you and your child on the LAS website, and hard copies are available in the main office. It is imperative that as parents, you go over these handbooks with your child to ensure they understand student expectations at LAS. Some of the contents in the handbooks have changed, so ensure you and your child are familiar with the information as this understanding is vital to the success of your child(ren).
I would also like to take this time to welcome several new teachers to LAS. You will see many new faces around campus, so please welcome them to our learning community. These teachers are all experienced and come from a variety of other international schools. Teachers bringing these diverse experiences boost our educational program by exposing our students to different learning strategies and instructional techniques.
As you may notice, our Elementary building project is now well under way. During the summer break, the demolition of the old building and excavation were completed along with the construction of the basement. You may recall, last May some of the Elementary classrooms were relocated to temporary locations to accommodate the construction. Teachers and students have been understanding and flexible; this is very much appreciated.
Finally, LAS will celebrate its 60th year this fall. The anniversary celebration is planned upon the completion of the new Elementary building in late October. More details will be provided in a few weeks.
The first day of school is Wednesday, August 10, and we hope to see all students back at school and on time.
I am looking forward to an exciting new year of learning.
Lahore American School
