Respect U

During the month of April, our Respect U focus is showing respect by giving “Total Effort in our Community.” Our community consists of students, parents, teachers, staff, and other families, friends and businesses that care about the Lab School. Giving total effort in our community means doing our very best, even when we are tired or it seems like it would be easier to give up.  What are ways to show total effort in our community?


    • treat people the way you would like to be treated
    • help others with their tasks and jobs if you finish early
    • keep your community/area clean and litter free (even if trash does not belong to you)
    • be polite
    • keep conversations quiet so you don’t interfere with/distract others
    • say “please” and “thank you”
    • follow rules which are in place to keep us safe and maintain order
    • play fair
    • remember younger students are watching to see how you react to/handle situations; are you a quitter?
    • persevere (keep working hard) even if you don’t succeed the first time
    • be prepared
    • be a good friend
    • be a good classmate by not interfering with another’s ability to learn
    • encourage others when they want to quit

Example Family Activity:  Have each family member share how he/she demonstrated “total effort”

  • in an individual accomplishment
  • by encouraging someone else to finish something when the person wanted to give up
  • through participation in a community event or activity

 Discuss the impact his/her actions had on those involved or on the community in general.

Awards and Accolades


On May 2, 2016, fifteen ULS middle school students were recognized as part of the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP).  Niles Babin, 6th grade, Emily Bolder, 7th grade, and Colleen Temple, 7th grade, earned grand recognition.  The remaining students recognized were 7th graders  Amelia Blackmon, Elise Doomes, Hayden Field, Ryan Gremillion, Adam Guillory, Christopher Hermann, Camryn Jackson, Ava Keegan, Hannah McCann, Maxwell Mooney, Evan Tsai and Emily Uter. 
Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented youth. As a global leader in gifted and talented education, Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential.

The U.S. Department of Education has recognized LSU Laboratory School as a 2015 National Blue Ribbon School.
University Lab is among only 285 public schools nationwide to receive the honor and was named, as part of the award, as one of Louisiana’s exemplary high performing schools. Exemplary high performing schools are among the state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. For these schools, student subgroup performance and high school graduation rates are also at the highest level.
U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, noted of all of the Blue Ribbon school recipients, “This honor recognizes your students’ accomplishments and the hard work and dedication that went into their success. Your journey has taught you collaboration, intentional instruction, and strong relationships in school and with your community. You represent excellence – in vision, in implementation, and in results – and we want to learn as much as we can from you.”

This latest honor is one of many that is a direct result of a culture of excellence that is embraced by faculty, staff, students, and stakeholders.
