See You in 2019!
December 20, 2018
This week we have managed to wind down 2018 in style...literally! Check out our LHS Facebook page here to see a photo gallery of some of students and staff showing off their gaudiest gear! A huge thank you to our generous and thoughtful PTO, our top-notch parents, our awesome staff and administrators, and the ever-so-awesome students in Room 106 for the delicious, decadent spread of cookies, hot chocolate, candy, and other sweet treats to hit the spot!
We wish all of our students, parents, staff, faculty, and friends a peaceful holiday season full of love and laughter, family and friends, unwavering hope, and all the joy your heart can hold.
Whether your winter season brings a "Merry Christmas," a "Happy Hanukkah," a "Joyous Kwanzaa," or a "Ramadan Kareem," the true spirit of this season lies within you all year...the ability to show compassion and charity, accept and appreciate differences, lift others, spread kindness, and share joy and a giving heart.
Have a wonderful break...see you in 2019!

They're On a Mission
Arjun Agarwal's and John Weaver's documentary debut at the Washington Crossing, PA dress rehearsal on December 9th received such positive ovations from the public that the students were invited to the actual crossing reenactment on December 25th.
Agarwal (LHS 10th grader) and Weaver (now at Lawrenceville Prep) wrote, produced, and edited "The Ten Day Stand that Defined a Free Country," as their National History Day Competition entry while at LMS.
The crossing reenactment is at 1:00 p.m.; the students will introduce their 10-minute documentary at 11:30 a.m., noon, and 12:30 p.m. The public is invited to this free event, which is part of Patriot's Week.
