Lawtell elementary is a really good school. I am in 5th grade this year and it is awesome. The teachers are really nice. I have been here since pre-k and have been building it up ever since. All the teachers basically know me because of my brother. He was the student of the year in 8th grade (Cameron Robin). Every time I went in the classroom, everyone would say bailey. this school has become my best friend. I hope that doesn't change.

I've been at lawtell from pre k to 8th grade I loved it there I had my ups and my downs but, it's been a really nice journey and I learned a lot on the way I learned to stay true to myself. to stay away from the mess and, have fun enjoy being a kid while it lasts because once you get to high school it's a whole different story.
