Congratulations to the Class of 2017!   We are very proud of you and wish you the very best in the future.   Baccalaureate is tonight at 7:00 p.m. at Pilgrim Covenant Church, the Senior Motorcade is tomorrow morning, Senior Music Showcase is Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in the LMHS Auditorium, Senior Community Awards Ceremony begins at 6:15 p.m. Thursday evening and Graduation is Saturday, June 3 at 10:00 a.m. on the LMHS field, weather permitting, or LMHS gym otherwise.

8th Grade students are visiting Washington D.C. this week.   Many other end-of-year trips and celebrations are scheduled over these final weeks of school.  Refer to updates from the principals for details.   June 21 is the final day of school this year and is a half-day for students.

A.J. Robbins Memorial Fieldhouse was approved at the May 24, 2017 School Committee meeting. Construction begins soon.   The memorial fieldhouse includes a wall of remembrance and the message “Life choices have consequences. Be wise and help each other.”   The project’s message resonated with the community resulting sufficient fundraising and donations of goods/services to allow the project to move forward.   I want to acknowledge and thank Bill Iannacci for his vision and effort in making this fieldhouse a reality.      FieldHouse Presentation Excerpts.pdf
