Elementary School Book Fair

New this year and as previously shared, the Elementary School’s Fall Book Fair will be open from 8AM until 2:30PM during elementary parent conference days, October 17th and 18th!  This is an especially nice opportunity for families with multiple elementary Lab School students! Please feel free to drop off your elementary Lab School student(s) in the elementary library prior to your scheduled conference time. Mrs. Poirrier and Mrs. Major will keep students busy browsing for good books while you and the teachers meet.  

While conference day will provide the most convenient and relaxed opportunity to visit the book fair with your child(ren), if you are unable to visit that day please refer to the schedule. Red type indicates changes to the tentative schedule your child’s teacher may have previously shared.   Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time for you to check in at the main office.  If you have not previously visited the school this year, be sure to have your driver’s license with you for necessary scanning into the system.      

For your convenience, at the scheduled visit time front office workers will escort all grade-level visitors to the library at one time to meet the children since buildings are secure throughout the school day.  Please stay with the class to allow for re-entry into the main building and return your visitor’s sticker to the main office or your escort before leaving campus.  Because everyone values students’ instructional time and library space is limited, we thank you for understanding that children may only visit the book fair during the school day at the time listed on the schedule for their class. 

REMINDER:  Please park in the parking garage adjacent to Barnes and Noble.  Officers must follow normal LSU Traffic protocol for ticketing and towing on days LSU students and/or employees are on campus. We always want your visits to be enjoyable and hassle-free!

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.
