Welcome to Laurel Hills Elementary
Laurel Hills opened in September of 1966 with first, second, and third graders. Fourth and fifth graders joined then in November, upon completion of the rest of the building. Students slated to attend Laurel Hills had been attending Pittman Hills Junior High during the 1964-1965 school years. The first principal at Laurel Hills was Mr. Joe Edward. Money for construction of Laurel Hills was obtained from one of 17 bond elections held in the Raytown School District in a period of 18 consecutive years.
