Cupcakes (and Causes)

Cupcakes (and Causes) will be meeting tonight in the library at 7:00 pm for a screening and discussion of the documentary "Opium Brides". This is a human trafficking issue so it's right up our alley!! Plus, along with the assembly this week about girls and education in Afghanistan, you can learn about this issue Afghan girls face as well...And if you need more of an incentive to go, there will of course be cupcakes!

Assembly Wednesday May 22

During AIM 60 on Wednesday there will be an assembly in the auditorium for most of the school. (Several advisories are participating in a survey instead.)

LHS class of 1987 alumna Beth Brundage Murphy and her work will be the focus. Beth is a very successful documentary filmmaker and she will show us clips from her latest project, What Tomorrow Brings.

What Tomorrow Brings is about the extremely complicated issue of educating girls in Afghanistan. Beth returned from filming earlier this month and LHS will be the first to see her footage.

Beth was a girl from Ledyard...
