Posted on Thursday, May 14, 2020
by Amy Conant The entire school had earned the Golden Croc in April for stepping up during this unique time in history; however, I am instructed to give it to just one deserving person. This person is, to me, a literature sommelier. When I bring students to the library, she knows their palate and through encouragement supports students to choose a book that might be pleasing to them. She broadens their literature taste by offering books similar to the one they had, or intrigues them with an... Read More

Judge Jeffrey Karp visits Landmark School
Posted on Monday, May 4, 2020
Remote learning has started to feel remarkably "normal" as Landmark students have adjusted to attending one-to-one tutorials, gathering in small groups for academic classes, visiting teachers during "office hours," even joining athletic team meetings—all online. So when head of Landmark's High School, Bill Barrett, needed to shift an in-person presentation by Superior Court Judge Jeff Karp to an online session, no one skipped a beat. On Friday, May 1, more than 20 students, faculty, and staff... Read More

The High School Study Skills Department held its first-ever virtual debates on May 1. First- and second-year debate students discussed nuclear energy and the drinking age. The students presented meticulously researched evidence and cohesive arguments in an organized, thorough manner, especially considering the medium: Google Meet, which inevitably introduces an assortment of technical glitches. Because students have been learning remotely for six weeks, they did not have a chance to practice... Read More

The Winter of 2020 did not deliver the usual drama of our region with mounds of white, fluffy snow, the excitement of an oncoming blizzard, or even a snow day. It was grey, dry, and frankly a little dull. But the more than 135 photos submitted by 27 Elementary•Middle School students for this year's Winter Photo Contest were anything but boring.  This year's EMS winner is Cameron Minster who has submitted photos to the contest for the past four years. Lauri Johnson, EMS faculty member who is... Read More

Three Landmark High School teachers, Michelle Boucher, Doug Musco, and Doug Walker, traveled to Mozambique over March break and worked with more than 100 teachers at three schools.

The presentations... Read More

On Thursday, March 26, teachers donned purple clothing to celebrate Purple Thursday, a weekly... Read More
