LA at a Glance
W INTErIM Winterim — a word everyone on the LA campus knows extremely well — is the annual centerpiece to Lawrence Academy’s commitment to immersive education and experiential learning. A hands-on experience, Winterim is the perfect complement to how students learn in the classroom every day at LA. In 2018, for the first time, a group of students (joined by faculty members Laurie McGowan and Kira Shaikh) traveled to Morocco, where they photographed the beautiful landscapes, learned about Moroccan culture, took in local art, and cooked and ate regional foods — experiences they will remember forever.
L OV E Y OUr S C H OOL W EEK In the spirit of community, Lawrence Academy devoted a week in February to celebrating our school with shared acts of gratitude, giving, and service. Whether it was a series of fun “Carpool Karaoke” videos with Head of School Dan Scheibe, current Spartans participating in Spirit Week, faculty and staﬀ being honored at the annual appreciation luncheon, students and alumni attending the Winter Walk in Boston, everyone donating to the LA Fund throughout the week, or community members spreading the love on social media using the #LoveLAWeek, everyone got involved in some way to show their appreciation for Lawrence Academy and its community. e Winter Walk, one of the major events of the week, is an initiative the founders of which believe that ending homelessness is within our reach. Robyn Glaser ’86, one of the walk’s main organizers, spoke to the LA community during an assembly a few days before; she discussed Winter Walk’s mission to raise funds and awareness towards that goal, and to help organizations in Greater Boston that are working on supporting and caring for the homeless community and preventing homelessness.
