Winterim is the centerpiece of Lawrence Academy's commitment to immersive education -- learning in the concrete and physical world of activity as a complement to learning in the vicarious and symbol-filled world of traditional classrooms.

Note: Individual programs are subject to change.

The Winterim program is an opportunity to explore a broader range of subjects and skills than is otherwise possible in a regular classroom. In that spirit, student reporters assist the LA communications staff in covering their classmates' experiences, while gaining some knowledge of their own.

For a more historical perspective, check out the 2018, 2017, 2016, and 2015 Winterim Blogs (posted together below). You may also view 2014, 2013, the 2012 Winterim Photo Gallery, and the 2011 Winterim Blog.

5 Ranks: Winterim Things

Mr. Scheibe is well-known on the LA campus for his signing "snow day" declarations. However, today "Head mixMaster Grande" delivered "a little Winterim jam - Five Ranks."

The lyrics are below:

Yo, even the sketchiest weather conditions

Won't interfere with our Winterim visions

No matter what Mother Nature will bring

These are a few of our Winterim things

Potter and Margraf will catch us some fishes

Quilting makes beautiful patterns with stitches

We go to Galapagos on airplane wings

These are a few of our Winterim Things

Play chess, learn scuba

Make your own tuba

Belize, DR

Or even Cuba

You like my chair,

Gee thanks just built it

I got some help

From Mister Matt Smith

First choice, I got it

Second choice, she got it

Third choice he got it

Fourth choice they got it

You like my boat,

Gee thanks, just built it

Fifth choice, OK

You got this, you got this

It's a tradition in our Spartan Nation

Experiential LA education

We know before we start it will be all good

Cause it is led by Sir Anthony Hawgood

Seasonal affect can make you a sad guy

Yoga and martial arts make you a jedi

Faculty leaders create clever schemes

These are the pairs that I see in my dreams

There's Fos

And Ryan

Raquel and


There's Smith

and Dawson

That will

Be Awesome

There's Liu

and Brescia



We're get-

Tin human

With Bell

And Poulin

The Beard

and Igoe

But not





And K Po

You like

My vase

Gee thanks

Just fired it

In Clay and Kiln

McBride where’s Ms. Whit

Students acting like frequent fliers

Other schools are try-hard tryers

Passport my business card

Get back before it expires

I don't mean to brag,

But Winterim's got some swag

We lead the ISL

by doing Winterim well

What should I choose, Flip flops or boots

Wear proper footwear don't try to be cute

Proper hydration and nutrients too

Guzzling Gatorade, water, or juice

Look at my neck, Look at my neck

Got a bad sun burn, but hey what the heck

That's what you get, that's what you get

Use the correct level of SPF

Best wishes for an amazing Winterim, everyone!
