LA on Twitter: M.Menard '16 & I.Yang '15 pause during Thursday's Black Box #Theatre #dance performance.
The end of the year is filled with the last of the lasts for everyone.
From seniors finishing up their high school careers to underclassmen completing course work and projects; these final days of May are celebration-filled. Teams recognize seniors at the final home game. The freshmen and the seniors present their best work at academic museums. And the Spring Arts Showcase is filled with inspiring and fun performances, gallery shows, and recitals.
Throughout these closing days, we are witness to LA students living the mission – especially the part that asks them to “develop [their] voice and use it creatively, constructively, and with confidence.” What an incredibly rewarding sight to see students from all walks of LA life stepping up to perform, to support each other, and to exert themselves in all that we ask them to do!
To get a front-row glimpse into two performances, I include a clip from the music recital which features Lauren Messer ’18 playing Cup of Tea on the fiddle, along with one of the one-act plays, Captive Audience. Be sure to check out the social media links at the bottom of this message to see pictures from the other performances and exhibitions of #LASpringArts.
While much of what we are experiencing these days is about endings, much of it is also about beginnings, and our seniors are particularly caught in that dichotomy as they say goodbye to LA and hello to their next steps in life.
LA on Instagram: LA Senior #Beach Day 2015. #GoLASpartans
One of our favorite traditions has been Senior Beach Day. The class of 2015 spent yesterday at Salisbury Beach sunning, swimming, bonding, and spending good times together, sealing old friendships and making a few new ones. Tonight many of our students and faculty dance the night away at the Prom over at Fruitlands in Harvard. And next week is Senior Week, which culminates on Thursday and Friday with the Alumni Senior Breakfast and induction into the Alumni Association, then Senior Museum, followed by the traditional Parent Dinner on the Quad and Senior Slide Show in the RMPAC.
The seniors’ last day begins with senior sunrise on Murbach Field and culminates in our 222nd graduation on Friday morning at 10:00 AM, where we hope to see many alumni, parents, and LA friends to help us say our goodbyes to the Class of 2015 and send them off to begin the rest of their lives.
