In her latest blog for The Huffington Post, Head of School Ann V. Klotz provides advice she recently shared with parents new to Laurel. She encourages parents to inform the school of important family situations, to allow their children to make mistakes, to eat dinner as a family and more -- every parent will take something away from Klotz's wisdom.
It looks like this will be a great season for Gator Basketball! Senior Nicole Felice was one of 62 girls in Northeast Ohio named by Cleveland.com as a player to watch. After Nicole led the Gators to their first win of the season against Lake Catholic, Laurel’s varsity basketball team made Cleveland.com’s Top 25 poll. Go Gators!
A frequent contributor to The Huffington Post, Ann V. Klotz’s latest piece reflects on how she and her family made the decision to move from Manhattan to Northeast Ohio over ten years ago. Leaving the only life her two young daughters had known, welcoming her infant son into the world, running a summer theatre program in Pennsylvania and beginning her first year as Head of Laurel, Klotz felt as though she had perhaps bitten off more than she could chew. Read how her husband Seth encouraged her to “Keep on Chewing.”
Laurel Senior Naomi Shapiro isn't a typical member of Laurel's cross country team. Naomi's Jewish faith requires that she not drive in motorized vehicles from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday evening. With many cross country meets taking place on Saturdays, Naomi and her family have discovered an unconventional way to get to meets.
While her teammates ride the bus to meets, Naomi and her parents find a hotel in the vicinity of each meet. They arrive to the hotel on Friday evening, walk to the meet venue on Saturday and then back to the hotel. At times Naomi and her parents have walked up to ten miles round-trip in addition to the distance she runs during each meet.
Recently Naomi sat down with Cleveland.com to discuss her story and they shadowed her for her final cross country meet as a Laurel student.
