Welcome to the Janet Q. Lawson Campus! We will begin our tour at the front reception area, where you will likely recognize our awesome front desk team: Catherine and Cassie. As we continue down the hall, you will notice tutor alcoves, or sections of the hallway set aside just for small group activity. These are especially useful for our Adult ESL tutors to utilize during evening classes. In addition to the alcoves, we will pass our staff and volunteer lounge and the Adult Education office.
Up next is American Express Toddler Beginnings classroom. You will notice everything in this room is tiny to accommodate our little learners.
Leaving Toddler Beginnings, you will see our mutli-purpose room to your right where we have meals, activities, and assemblies. Next, you will see our computer lab with a class in session and the In-Home program office. In-Home visits typically take place in the homes of infants and toddlers, but you will notice that our office also has a home-like atmosphere so that if parents need to come to our facility for any reason, they can feel at home here as well.
The last of the Early Learning Center is our preschool classroom, which will be full of new students today on the first day of classes for Pre-K and Kindergarten.
The remainder of our lower floor houses our lower grades from Kindergarten to second.
Just up the stairs, you will find the pride and joy of the Janet Q. Lawson campus - our library! The books painted on the wall just outside were voted favorites by our very own students.
The second floor is composed of our art studio and the upper grades - 4 through 6. Moving into the new campus last year allowed us to expand to the 6th grade.
And, finally, back on the first floor, and out the doors, we have our beautiful playgrounds overlooking the Rose Park Golf Course! We start at the Toddler Beginnings playground, where you will see two play sets generously donated and assembled by Edwards Life Sciences, and our "big kid" playground sponsored by Ally Bank. We are so fortunate to begin a second school year at this beautiful campus, and we are thankful for our donors and supporters who made this happen everyday of the year!
