It is springtime at LPS and staff and students are looking forward to a much deserved April break. But April break is no vacation for our facilities department: Tom, Carlos, Patrice and Tim. This is the time to make necessary repairs such as filling the potholes in the parking lots and time to clean up the debris from the winter and spruce up the landscaping. They will also be busy deep cleaning the buildings, including washing and waxing the floors in the hallways and classrooms.
Springtime also means that the horticulture program has started planting outside and not just in the greenhouse. Please stop by to browse or to purchase a plant. Bella and Val, our horticulturists, have done an amazing job, and it is well worth a visit. There will be an open house dedication of the greenhouse on Friday, May 10th, and on Saturday, May 11th. More information will be available regarding time and events.
Springtime is also special at LPS since we are a short walk from the Boston Marathon. On Patriots’ Day, Monday, April 15th, we can cheer on the runners, especially Amy Davis and Denise Bynum who are raising money for LPS. You can still support our runners and LPS by making a donation at the following website: https://www.crowdrise.com/donate/project/learning-prep-school-boston-2019/learningprepschool
I hope our staff and students enjoy the April break and come back refreshed for the last push to the end of the school year!
