Dear LS Families, Staff and Students,

We had a grand launch of Project LS on March 2nd to which all of our students were invited to assemblies and workshops that day. Thank you to students and teachers for participating in the reflective conversations about this shared experience which expressed our varied viewpoints and perceptions. It was a good way to affirm how one can’t truly know what someone else is thinking without an opportunity to ask and listen. Thank you to the Codman Ogden Trust for providing funds to support the launch events and project planning for this endeavor.

Last week Project LS continued with a celebration of World Languages week filled with language, food, shared family histories, costumes, recitation and karaoke! The week ended with last Friday evening’s beautiful interpretive dance performance Angaje by the Jean Appolon Dance Troupe. We are grateful to SERF for funding the performance and to SudburyTV for recording the event which will be available for viewing through their website.

Given that we have no choice when a blizzard will arrive, this is as good a time as any to receive one! We are tucked in between the two sports seasons and our Project LS events continue with the Pops Concert scheduled for Thursday and Mr. LS on Friday!

We look forward to the annual SERF College Fair on Saturday, March 18th.

Congratulations to our winter sports teams for completing a successful season and to those teams that made it through to post-season play. Congratulations to our athletes who represented LS at State and New England-wide competitions. Several of the end-of-season contests were lost in overtime or other close races. I commend our students for their earnest efforts and also for demonstrating considerable grace in defeat. I extend a special congratulation to junior Andrew Marshall who won his weight category at the New England Wrestling Championship in TRIPLE overtime!!

On March 5th, another team from Lincoln-Sudbury won the regional National Ocean Sciences Bowl competition at MIT (the “Blue Lobster Bowl”) and gained, as the fruits of victory, an expense-paid trip to Corvallis, Oregon, to compete in the national NOSB tournament during April break. This victory is the culmination of months and years of solitary and collective hard work and study by the students. Our team has done well in the past but this win was clearly a once in a decade win for us – Congratulations!!

Stay safe and enjoy the snow!
