Dear Students and Parents,
Nothing can stop the Holiday Cheer of Lurgio! During the past several weeks, Lurgio students brought in donations of food for families in need. With school cancelled and the snow piling up outside, the staff from Lurgio and BHS answered the rallying call to spread good will to the Bedford Community. Over forty staff members and their families braved the weather today in order to prepare and deliver the thirty food baskets. It is moments like these that I feel most proud and fortunate to work with such wonderful people.
From our Lurgio Family to yours, Happy Holidays!
No School - Holiday Break
We are so thankful to have had over 150 people come out to support the “I’ve Got Your Back” (IGYB) movement initiated by our eighth grade student, Hannah Guillemette. On Wednesday December 6, 2017 from 6-8pm we presented the film “Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age” in the Lurgio Dining Hall.
