Letter from the Head of School - March 2016

Dear Parents,

 We have had a great winter season with overall decent snow conditions, especially in recent weeks. As I am writing this letter to you, we have beautiful weather and almost spring-like temperatures.

The second semester has been very exciting and enriching for all of the LAS community members. During the Family Winter Week, we welcomed over 160 parents and siblings to the campus! It was very successful and we reconnected with parents, shared plans for the future, and listened to parents talk about how they would like to see the school move forward.
