    We are excited to announce the parent volunteers for the PIE Executive Committee, for the next two years; Stacey Suckerman (high school parent), Rachel Clouse, (continued member and high school parent) and Timothy Flood (high school parent). This year, because of the complications of COVID, fewer parents have been able to volunteer their time. Therefore, we have decided to run a “mini PIE” committee. This group will engage in the same work that PIE usually does, just in the more limited framework of what COVID allows. It will include the two Principals, Jen Thorell and Amy Davis, as LPS representatives as well as the 3 parents mentioned above.

    We are incredibly appreciative of the efforts, team work, thoughtfulness and positivity of the outgoing PIE Executive Committee; Nikki McCay, Tracey McElroy, Genie Peterson, and Susan McConathy. They were the pioneers of this committee and have been a pleasure to work with. LPS thanks you for volunteering your time to bring our students and families together for fun events, fundraising and supporting our field trips!

    So many great things are happening in our campus Greenhouse this fall! Check out this slideshow outlining what they're doing, what we're growing, and why they're growing it. There's a short virtual GH tour at the end of the slideshow as well!

    This year our event was held virtually due to COVID-19 but were thrilled to keep one of our favorite events. This day is set aside each fall to honor our grandparents and grandfriends who positively impact our students' lives.

    On January 31st, Star Lab Portable Planetarium visited the 10th and 11th grade at Learning Prep, and the show was a huge success! During this experience our students entered a traveling planetarium in which they were able to look at the night sky during different points of the year. Within this very concrete, tactile, and immersive experience the students were able to see how expansive space really is. Each of the four programs was a little different as they were directed by student questions as well as the the Massachusetts STE Frameworks. This show was funded by PIE (Partners in Education committee).

    A small group of 7 students entered Lenovo’s Traveling Storybook Competition by writing a story about what schools would look like in the future. Their entertaining and imaginative story about Onyx Milkyway, a visiting student coming to Learning Future School (LFS) in the year 3020 was filled with creative ideas like portal travel, voice activated locks, and robotic chefs. The story was noticed by Lenovo and was chosen as top 10 in the nation!

    The top 10 stories were then animated by a professional team. The short animated videos are posted on Lenovo’s Traveling Storybook website and will be voted on to determine a winner. The school with the most votes by March 19th wins $25,000 from Lenovo to create a reimagined technology space for the school.

    ***We need your help to vote! To watch the video and vote via this link: https://www.lenovotravelingstorybook.com/gallery

    You can vote multiple times and you can vote using different devices (computer, phone, ipad) to get more votes. Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen to submit your vote. Feel free to share this link and our story with friends, family, and your local communities.

    Congrats to our students!
