Visiting Lawrence Academy Alumni
A recent opportunity to connect with alumni attending Lawrence Academy left all in attendance filled with warm memories.
Tandy Bryant '06, Alumni Engagement Coordinator, and Guida Mattison, Secondary School Placement Coordinator, had the opportunity to visit several of our alumni at Lawrence Academy this week. The group gathered at the home of Head of School and parents of NBS alumni, Dan Scheibe and Annie Montesano, for lunch and conversation. It was wonderful to reconnect with our alumni and hear what they've been up to and reminisce over Nashoba Brooks memories. Topics of conversation included the Grade 8 musical, our wonderful teachers, Earth Day celebrations and favorite assembly sing-alongs. It was incredible to learn that our alumni are continuing to dip their toes in new extracurriculars, advocate for themselves with their teachers, and take on leadership opportunities wherever they can. We can't wait to continue these visits throughout the spring!
Alongside the book fair and poetry month, April has been a wonderful time for literature at Nashoba Brooks School. Sharon Draper and Jen Campbell, two celebrated authors, left their mark on the community over the past few weeks.
More than 75 parents responded to this year’s annual School survey and numbers were well balanced across all grade levels. The results of the survey are impressive and the feedback the parents offer to the School is glowing.
As Black History Month comes to a close, students and faculty alike celebrate diversity, acknowledging that a school is not only classrooms, gymnasiums, and fields, but also the people within these walls. Each year and at every grade level our students contemplate the presence and importance of different backgrounds, experiences and beliefs. And this month provides community members with an opportunity to reflect on what it means to be Black in America.
