Our School

Laurel Meadow Elementary School buildingWelcome to Laurel Meadow Elementary School (LMES), a pre-kindergarten through fifth grade school located in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Established in 2008, Laurel Meadow is a community school with a population of approximately 550 students. We inspire our students and staff, affectionately known as Laurel Meadow Lions, to achieve their fullest potential.

Laurel Meadow Elementary prides itself on recognizing a “whole child approach.” We begin each day with a morning meeting, wherein students gather in a circle for 15 minutes and interact with one another through greetings, sharing, group activities, and morning messages. We find this builds a strong sense of community, and sets children up for success socially and academically.

Additionally, LMES implements Math Workshop in grades Kg–5. Math Workshop involves students in small group instruction and differentiated math tasks that are appropriate for their level of learning. The focus is on problem solving and student talk about math methods. Students have choices in their activities, and have time for practicing big ideas.

Here at Laurel Meadow we are five houses, one family! Our school adopted the house system during the 2022–2023 school year, and have enjoyed showing our house spirit ever since. Students are sorted into one of our five houses their kindergarten year, and are house members for life! Each house represents one of the five characteristics each Laurel Meadow student strives to possess.
