Abbott Lawrence Academy Events

two ALA students acting out scene in Aida

Last week we were amazed by an impressive rendition of the musical "Aida" by Abbott Lawrence Academy students. All of their hard work was evident during their brilliant production that showcased dancing, singing, and acting. Many thanks to the Theater director, Laurie Donlan, for making this all come together and highlighting all of the superb talent that we have here in Lawrence High School. For more images of the stunning performances please visit our ALA flickr account!

Last week a group of ALA Juniors travelled to Biogen Community Labs in Cambridge, MA. They participated in an all day, hands-on, scientific activities program. This was a wonderful experience for our ALA students to become involved in the STEM community. We hope to return again with our current Sophomores!

ALA students participated in the 3rd annual room decorating contest! Students were required to incorporate diverse cultures into their decorations as well as creativity. They were judged by a panel of judges from a variety of staff in LHS. The winners will be treated to a delicious dinner of Chinese Food this week! Winners (by advisory) were: Nicholas Parsons, Shannon Morey, and Maria Payano. Congratulations to everyone for their hard work and stunning displays of cultural traditions!

Right before the holiday break, our ALA family embraced the spirit of giving by participating in a school wide day of community service. Over 250 students and staff dedicated their day to serving others at Cor Unum, Lawrence Catholic Academy, YDO, Habitat for Humanity Restore, Nevins Nursing Home, Project Home Again, Lazarus House, Spark Academy, and the Lawrence Senior Center. It was a fun and enriching experience that we will continue to incorporate into our holiday traditions! Many thanks to all of the participants that allowed this event to be possible! Also, a huge thank you to the ALA guidance counselor Micaela Tetrault Masterson for orchestrating this whole event!
