Scope and Content

The Laboratory School Newsletter offers a good way to look at the achievements, plans, and official outlook of the Malcolm Price Laboratory School.  Some issues include loose sheets with information on school lunch menus, athletic schedules, and special events.  The newsletter was issued in an attractive print format until September 2000, when it began to be issued on-line.  Copies in this collection from October 2000-2005 are printouts of the on-line version.  This collection approaches a complete run, but there are some gaps. The Elementary Newsletter, located at the end of Box 2, is a much shorter run with a number of gaps.

Some issues of the newsletters have been digitized and are available online in ScholarWorks.
