Spring Musical LITTLE WOMEN - March 20 - 21, 2020
"Produced nationally and internationally, Little Women has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love. The original production starred the unparalleled Sutton Foster, who received Tony, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk nominations for her performance.
Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.
Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit... The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice."

Art of Inspiration ---- ADL No Place For Hate
As a continuation of our Black History Month celebration, LCJSMS is welcoming artist and speaker Richard Hight, who will create real-time portraits of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks for our school. The Art of Inspiration assemblies has been made possible by the support of the Summit Education Foundation (SEF).
Mr. Hight will seamlessly blend painting with a motivational speech, drawing from the lives of both prominent civil rights figures. Our students will walk away with a deeper understanding of the lives of Dr. King and Mrs. Parks and the motivation to apply their belief in social justice and equality to life at LCJSMS.
The school day following the assemblies will be our next ADL No Place For Hate lesson. Every student will have a debrief session with a teacher on their team, extending the discussion around ways we can continue to honor the legacy of the civil rights movement by continuing to push for equality in our society.
