• ‪LMACS IS CLOSED Wednesday, March 14th. ‬

    From the Executive Director

    As winter term comes to a close and the last snowflakes fall, LMACS is excited to welcome our new students for the 2018 spring term.

    Winter term saw many exciting and fun field trips and activities. We had our annual Gingerbread House competition with the Gentlemen Songsters serving as the judges... certainly they found singing was much more enjoyable for them than judging the nine great entries. The Gentlemen Songsters have become one of the students' favorite LMACS volunteer groups and the Songsters are very tolerant of our enthusiastic - albeit off-key - singing!

    We also had a great day cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. As part of our partnership with the National Parks and as a recipient of an Active Trails Grant, faculty and students spent a beautiful winter day at the Great Brook Ski Center. A great time was had by all!

    Safely back at school, new and returning students challenged themselves academically... most of them with great success. Teachers are testing new learning models as students grow in this ever more challenging world. Among the many alternative-learning opportunities at LMCAS, the Merrimack Repertory Theatre has sponsored us at several outstanding theatre productions. The plays spanned a wide range of topics including Knyum, the story of a young Cambodian man growing up in the USA and not having a real understanding of his heritage.

    We are pleased to report that TJX Corporation (Marshall, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Sierra Trading Post) has returned again this year to work with our seniors in their Youth Business Institute program. TJX representatives teach valuable work skills and provide worthy students with opportunities for jobs and scholarships.

    Thanks to all our partners and families for a great winter term and a reminder to students to keep working hard to the finish line!
