Spirit Days at Conservatory Lab are a time of exploration, cultural celebration, and engagement in scholarship beyond the classroom. Students drive learning through these events, designed to leave space for imagination and self-expression.
Spirit Weeks bolster excitement and community spirit during points of the year that can be stressful for students, such as the week before the start of MCAS testing for students in Grades 3-8. They can also relate to national celebrations like Black History Month or Hispanic Heritage Month. Or, can just be for fun like ‘Dress like a Hero’ day when students dressed up as superheroes or everyday heroes who serve our community.
All 450 Conservatory Lab students logged in to remote learning, despite barriers caused by COVID-19 in part because they were able to come together and virtually uphold our Crew Spirit!
Students also brought their Conservatory Lab spirit to Crew (the equivalent to an advisory period), informal virtual community check-ins hosted by teachers, and music classes where they sing together with Resident Artists. Check out their spirit below!
