One of my favorite events of last year was our Multicultural Night! I loved the opportunity for our families and staff to share aspects of their culture, heritage, and travel experiences with other Lab families and to get a taste of the cultures from around the world that are represented within the Lab community.
This year's Multicultural Night is Thursday, April 19, which is right around the corner! There are two ways that you can be involved:

Here are the remaining field trips! Remember, if you prepaid for field trips, just circle "prepaid" on the permission slip. And even if you prepaid, we still need a signed permission slip for bus trips. If you have not yet prepaid and wish to do so, you can pay online at K12paymentcenter.com or send in cash or check. You can send in $25, $50, or $75, and you will receive an accounting by trimester of your remaining balance.

We will take a look at our waitlist and our Intent to Return forms from current families at the beginning of each month starting in April, and we will make admissions decisions at that time. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is still time to sign up for the boy's after school Let Me Run program. We need a few more boys to run the program, so if you are interested, please sign up this week!
Make and Grow time is right around the corner, and Mr. Hartzell has expanded to 7 weeks of camp this year at UNCC Center City!
As always, students will have lots of time to build and test different projects in our pop-up maker space. In addition to exploring/tending the gardens at Lab and First Ward Elementary, we will also be spending time experimenting at the Middle School and McGill Rose Garden.
It's definitely going to be an exciting summer, so sign up for your week(s) now! To register, visit www.makeandgrow.weebly.com.
