Find It Fast
Message from the Principal
Welcome families and students to the 23-24 school year at the beautiful Earl Lawson Early Education Center! My name is Stefanie Bourne and this is my 14th year serving the families of Leavenworth. I am extremely excited for our community as we continue operating this center focusing on play-based instructional models for our students. Play is an important part of childhood and helps develop the whole child through critical thinking skills, collaboration, and social-emotional learning. "Scientists have recently determined that it takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new synapse in the brain--unless it is done with play, in which case, it takes between 10-20 repetitions" (Dr. Karyn Purvis).We are excited for an amazing year of literacy-based activities, service learning, community partnerships, and so much more! Thank you for choosing Leavenworth and please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
I am honored to be the principal of our littlest Pioneers and the future Class of 2036 and 2037!Principal Stefanie Bourne
