Over the February break, 19 Students from ALA and Marcus Tejada from the Upper School, attended the 33rd annual Harvard Model Congress Conference in Boston. With over 1,500 students in attendance from across the nation and Puerto Rico, these students got to represent members of the United States Senate as they lobbied to pass bills and argue for implementation in the spirit of the United States Congress. Additionally, ALA Junior Francisco Melendez was awarded for his performance and participation as a member on the Senate committee for Environment and Public Works.

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!
