Fall 2020 Welcome!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at the Shirley G. Moore Laboratory School! We are excited to get the year started and look forward to meeting all of you. 

Staff met this week to assign children to classrooms and your child’s teacher will contact you soon to arrange a time for a beginning-year visit via Zoom or on the playground. This individual visit greatly helps children make a good initial adjustment to school. In the meantime, if you have any questions about starting school please contact Lab School Director, Sheila Williams Ridge at will0342@umn.edu or Program Specialist Amy Pieren at piere001@umn.edu.

School opens on Wednesday, September 9, 2020. Please see the Lab School Family Calendar for additional dates. 

Lead teachers will staff the classrooms as follows: 

  • Multi-age morning classes: Amy Betz and Alyssa Wilt
  • Multi-age afternoon class: Marie Lister 
  • Two-year old 2- & 3-mornings classes: Ayuko Boomer

Our website also has much helpful information. If you have not had a chance to check it out, please do so at http://lab-school.umn.edu/parent-center. Each teacher also has a classroom blog where they post lesson plans, announcements, updates, and small group news. These pages are updated weekly after school begins. You can access the class blogs by clicking on the ‘Classroom Pages’ link.

We look forward to a wonderful school year working with you and your child!
