    Summer Gardening at LMS!

    How: WATER, then HARVEST
    Where: LMS GREENHOUSE
    When: SUMMER MORNINGS (or AFTERNOONS)
    Why: GROW and EAT!
     
    Come water the greenhouse gardens on days that work for you and enjoy the bounties of the harvest.

    Shlomy and the students are busy planting tomatoes, squash, basil, eggplants, kales, brussel sprouts, cantaloupes, peppers and pretty much every kind of summer veggie, fruit and herb you can think of, giving us an opportunity to adopt a summer garden for a day or two or as many as your heart (and schedule) would like to this summer. It takes about an hour to water the gardens and feed the fish, preferably in the morning before noon. But if you can’t make it then, you can also come at the end of the day. Come by yourself for a little respite/inspiration or with your kids (they may know more about how to care for our LMS gardens than you do) or with a friend and call it a Garden Playdate.

  • Join LMS at the Pride Parade, 6/8/19

    When we think about the lessons that are part of the anti-bias curriculum in LMS we think about supporting the development of kid's identities, their sense of belonging and their agency to create change. We explore ways in which kids can feel their actions create impact in the community around them. A couple of weeks ago the UE students learned about the history of the Pride flag and its significance in the LGBTQ rights movement. After the lesson, some of the kids helped hoist the flag outside our building. The kids were excited about the opportunity for them to take part in the Boston Pride Parade. They saw this as a place for them to express their support for the LGBTQ community and advocate for equality. Click on READ MORE to see all the details for this year LMS Pride march! Let the Pride Flag fly!

  • Grandfriends Day, May 30th, 9-11:30AM

    LMS Parents - this is a wonderful opportunity for your child(ren) to share the classroom with a grandparent or special adult friend. This event also gives Grandfriends a chance to experience the magic of seeing the children in their world at the school they love and for them to gain a true sense of what LMS is all about. 
     
    The morning includes a welcome reception, as well as a child-guided tour of the classroom, Arts Show, Book Fair, and Spring Plant sale.
     
    Grandfriends invitations were emailed out to all families the first week in May. We encourage you to share the invitation with the grandparents or special adult friends of your choice. The school does not send invitations directly to grandparents.
     
    We look forward to welcoming all Grandfriends to LMS!

    Elementary Drumming Residency, March 4th through 15th

    Beginning March 4th, Tom Foote (and his brother Dan) will be back on campus to join the elementary students for a 2-week intensive arts residency on drumming. The residency will have two performances on Thursday, March 14th - a dress rehearsal at 10:00 AM and an evening performance at 6:00 PM.
     
    Why, you might ask, do we do an annual residency? Many years ago, we started doing this to accomplish three things: 1) To provide an opportunity for children to perform for an audience; 2) To give kids a chance to work with teachers and children who are not in their normal daily classes; and 3) To allow us to pursue projects that all of elementary focus on over an extended time. 
     
    Beyond all that, we have created lots of excitement and institutional memories from the performances of circus acts, dance, poetry, puppetry, drumming and plays. We are confident that during the next two weeks, Tom and Dan will take us to places equally exciting and memorable!
