Each year, the Lab community comes together to celebrate the Schools and raise funds for the Laboratory Schools. Connections, an over 30-year tradition, is Lab’s biennial gala event, which brings together parents, faculty, staff, and alumni to celebrate and support the Schools. Dewey Dance, a tradition which began in 2017, alternates with Connections every other year and is a fun, informal event that also raises funds for the Schools.
