Volume VI | December 2018
Dear Alumni & Friends,

Here on the hillside, the three weeks between Thanksgiving and Winter Break have been action-packed. In our first assembly of the winter term, we congratulated the girls’ volleyball team for bringing a New England championship home to Spartan Nation! Click here for a video recap of the NEPSAC Class B Championship Game and here to view the photo gallery of the girls' season. Students have their Winterim assignments and the school is preparing for our January visit from the J. William Mees Visiting Scholar, teacher John Hunter , the founder of the World Peace Game. Learn more about John Hunter.
This weekend brings our winter girls' basketball and boys' hockey tournament to campus. We hope many of you will stop by on Friday and Saturday if you are available. To kick the weekend off, Friday night at 7:00 PM the Grant Rink will host the epic Lawrence Academy vs. Cushing game! The full schedule may be found here .

Even as we raced toward the holiday break, we took time in this last week to pause and reflect. This year's holiday concert brought warmth and light to our community. The LA Singers and the LA Band each performed music that celebrated peace, love, and joy, before they joined forces for a stirring rendition of the power ballad, “This Is Me,” from The Greatest Showman , inspiring each of us to “march on to the beat [we] drum”. Photo gallery here .
The evening culminated in an amusing and touching original Honors Theater ensemble performance based on interviews the students had conducted around campus , asking members of the community about the holidays and what makes them grateful and hopeful.
Wishing everyone wonderful holidays and a prosperous 2019!

From the Hillside,
Robinson Moore
Associate Head of School
