Photos from 50th Annual Rites of May

This year Lab celebrated the 50th Annual Rites of May. Festivities included over 1,200 people, a record number of performers and booths—representing ten countries, five diversity booths, seven school clubs, and two parent groups—more inflatables than ever, large numbers of student volunteers, huge t-shirt sales, a spectacular spring parade, and the highlight of the day: the maypole dance. This was one of the largest Rites of May ever, taking over all of Kenwood Mall, Scammon Garden, and lower Kovler Gym. Thank you to the parents, students, teachers, administrators, volunteers, and performers who came, helped, and enjoyed the day! We look forward to celebrating the 51st Rites of May with the Lab community next year! https://www.flickr.com/photos/laboratoryschools/albums/72157708805948193
