Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  

My name is Lauren Tovar, and I am honored to serve as the principal of Laurel Elementary Magnet School of Innovation and Career Exploration.  I look forward to working with the entire Laurel community and getting to know our students and families.  My career in education includes work as a site administrator, program coordinator, and classroom teacher at the elementary, middle and high school levels.

This year we begin a new journey in Distance Learning.  Our Laurel staff has worked very hard to develop lessons and learning experiences to support your child in their academic growth, social emotional growth, and behavioral growth.  We know that Distance Learning can bring many challenges for students and families.  The Laurel staff is here to support you, and if we work together we will make this a great school year.

Our theme this year is “Laurel… A great place to grow”, and we believe that this is very appropriate given our current climate.  This year we will all grow while working to provide the best learning experiences for our students.  Students, families, and staff will all learn new skills, and we will strengthen our Laurel community.  Let’s see this year as an opportunity to become a closer community as we work collaboratively to support our students.
