Get excited for Connections 2022, celebrating Lab’s 125th anniversary!

May 5, 6–11 p.m., Museum of Science and Industry

Don’t miss the celebration of Lab’s 125 years of history as a leader in progressive education, inspiring and nurturing a spirit of scholarship, curiosity, creativity, and confidence. 

Each year, the Lab community comes together to celebrate the Schools and raise funds for financial aid and other critical priorities. 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 financial aid. 

Connections 2022 promises to be an elegant evening that will include dinner, dancing, and entertainment. The event will support financial aid, a dedicated fund to ensure that all students with financial need can fully access everything a Lab education offers, and other special initiatives. 

Save the date for the event and join us as a volunteer! The Connections 2022 Committee, led by co-chairs Heiji Choy Black, P’26, P’28, P’32, and Nicola Halsall Idehen, P’27, P’28, is a wonderful way to get involved at Lab, support the Schools, and meet other parents. There are many opportunities to participate—to learn more, please contact us or visit the Connections 2022 website.
