June 20, 2017

“Positive change flows from a human connection,” says Lyn Burr Brignoli ’62. She received the 2017 Joan Shaw Herman Distinguished Service Award in recognition of her sustained personal efforts on behalf of education both locally and internationally. As a volunteer teacher for children with Down syndrome and other special needs in her Connecticut community, she traveled to Ghana in 2000 with a Fulbright group of teachers.

CASA Food Drive Ends Tomorrow, May 10

May 9, 2017

The Concord Academy Students in Action club (CASA) is hosting the Grand Grocery Challenge until tomorrow. The Grand Grocery Challenge is a food drive in which our goal is to raise 1,000 food items for Open Table, a food pantry with locations in Concord and Maynard that serves around 300 guests a week. We’re hoping for as many students as possible to participate by bringing in nonperishable food, toiletries, and household items, such as toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing and laundry detergent, reusable shopping bags, diapers, and baby wipes. The class that brings in the most items will receive an ice cream party. We would greatly appreciate if parents could remind their children to look through their pantry and find a few items to donate. Thank you!
