Greetings Laker Nation,

If you have any questions, please contact our Athletic Department at 508 947-2660 ext. 1161.

ARHS Fall Parent/Guardian Teacher Conference Night is Thursday, November 16, 2017, from 6:00-8:00 pm.  All teachers, guidance personnel and administrators will be present for individual conferences.  Please begin the night by stopping at the Main Office for a map and a copy of your student’s schedule.

We also thank Michael and Jamie Cody for donating a Life Cycle and to Ann Polk for her donation of a Treadclimber.

A big thank you to Brayton Point Energy, LLC, and Meredith Simas, Environmental and Chemistry Manager at the plant, for donating equipment to our Science Department.

Mr. Solomon's American Government class attended "This is Your Court Day" held at the Brockton District Court House.  Students toured courtrooms and spoke to several judges.  They also spent some time “behind the scenes.”  Employees from the probation courts, from the District Attorney's Office and from other arms of the Judicial Branch engaged students during this excellent learning experience.  

Congratulations to the cast and crew of “The Great Gatsby.”  Director Lippincott and our ARHS thespians had an excellent weekend of performances!  Special thanks to Mrs. Rimbey, Mr. Cote and Mr. Godden for their help.  ARHS Theatre & Drama Department look forward to entertaining audiences with their Spring Musical.  Details to follow.

The Powder Puff game between the Lady Laker Seniors and Lady Laker Juniors was a well-attended and spirited event.  Congratulations to the victorious members of the Class of 2018 who beat the Class of 2019 with a final score of 30 to 6.  Special thanks to Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Lippincott, Mr. Solomon and to the many other staff members who contributed to the night’s success.  

The November 1st College Application deadline has come and gone!  Mrs. Cronin, Class of 2018 Guidance Counselor, is pleased to report that 34% of our grade 12 students applied to one or more four year colleges.  The next big deadline is November 15th!  Should you need assistance, please contact Mrs. Cronin at jcronin@freelake.org.
