  • Bookswap is coming November 10

    Posted November 4, 2014

    Clean off your shelves, we need your books! Children are invited to bring in their gently used books to Lab's annual Bookswap. For every book brought in, your child will receive a ticket that can be exchanged for a book donated by a classmate. Children may also deposit tickets in the raffle for several brand-new books. Lower School students can bring books for donation to their classrooms November 10–12. N–5 grade classrooms will go to Bookswap November 17–20 in Blaine S407.

  • Middle School Giant Gym Night - Friday November 14, 7-9pm

    Posted October 21, 2014

    Your Middle School child will not want to miss Giant Gym Night, a PE teacher-supervised evening of games and activities in all of Lab's gyms—even the swimming pool will be open for part of the evening. This is a great opportunity for kids to have a safe night out with friends and enjoy plenty of activity choices. Volunteers are welcome and encouraged for this PA-sponsored event—we're hoping for six volunteers, so please sign up! Unfortunately, siblings cannot be accommodated.

    Posted November 4, 2014

    Overheard at dismissal: “I found ALL my soccer stuff in the Lost & Found”. Yes, there is soccer gear and much, much more. The Blaine Lost and Found, located in the vestibule behind Security, is overflowing. Please check the lost and found to claim your items. All unclaimed items will be donated after Thanksgiving. And if you can help connect lost items with their owners, please email Claudia Roeder.
