Congratulations to Our New LCS Student Grade Representatives (9-11)

Inspiring Young Leaders
LCS has the aspirational goal of becoming a school known and recognized for our commitment to student voice. Our vision, to “inspire teenagers to become leaders who care, connect and contribute,” drives our strategy and we continually seek ways to reinforce that students are key players in the process of change and that education about the school-decision-making process is fundamental to the Lakefield experience.

One of the ways we strive to empower our students is through participation in elected leadership roles. Today our new community-elected student Grade Representatives (Grades 9-11) were announced. Coached by LCS staff and our Co-Head Students Catherine Kim ‘21 and Jack Freeman ‘21, this group of leaders will participate in activities designed to build their confidence and understanding of their new role as representatives of their Grade. The Grade Reps will work through facilitated discussions and debriefs with the other students to discover how, as a team, they might purposefully engage with the school community throughout the year.

Grade 9
Ashley Hansen, Gabi Brown, Nate Andras, and Owen Plunkett
