Cranberry counting contest!
Lawrence School has a 49 year annual tradition of estimating the number of cranberries in a jar. This contest happens in the library and is currently in progress (through November 16). Winners will be announced on Monday, November 20th.
Students typically submit their estimations when they come to the library with their class. In addition, teachers may borrow the jar, hold an estimation activity in the classroom, and then submit student estimates. Students may also submit their guess before or after school during the regular library hours.
Each year our local bookstores generously donate gift cards as prizes for each of the four categories: K - 2 students; grade 3 - 5 students; grade 6-8 students; and staff. We thank the Children's Bookshop and the Brookline Booksmith for so graciously donating these prizes each year!
Good luck to all!
