The Emma Willard Varsity Lacrosse team had a great season this year! They finished with 9-3 overall record in regular season play.
Tomorrow, May 14th, Lacrosse has their first Sectionals game against Scotia at home, starting at 4:15. Come to the game and cheer on your Jesters!
As the spring season comes to an end, all of the players on the Emma softball team should be proud of how hard they have pushed themselves and each other to take the team to the next level, while also displaying a positive attitude and supporting one another both on and off the field. What a great season we have had so far! We have only lost twice within the league against very good Waterfort and New Lebanon teams. Congratulations on the winning season and let’s keep up the positive attitude Emma Softball!
Emma girls were challenged to pick a container full of dandelions in exchange for a Free Fair Trade chocolate bar. Many girls took advantage of the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the great weather, while also performing some pretty impressive spring magic by turning dandelions into chocolate bars. Keep plucking Emma! Let’s take back the power from the flowers!

From April 10 to April 13, 2013, the Emma Willard Dance Company went on tour to Boston. They arrived in Boston Wednesday evening in time for a very interesting improvisation class taught by Olivier Besson. Thursday morning, the EWS Dance Company was able to watch a Boston Ballet technique class and part of their company rehearsal, which was absolutely breathtaking. Later in the day, the EWS Dance Co performed at the Nashoba Brooks School, which was a lot of fun because they got to perform for a younger, very enthusiastic crowd of 4th graders. In the evening, they toured the St. Mark’s High School, which was beautiful and impressive. They also took an East Coast Swing dance class there. Friday morning, the EWS Dance Co took a Qigong class at the Dana Farber Cancer Clinic. Afterwards, they performed in the lobby. In the afternoon, the dance company met with other dancers in the dance program at the Cambridge School of Weston. It was fun to share ideas and thoughts about each other’s dance pieces. Friday night, the EWS Dance Company had the pleasure of going to the Cambridge Science Festival to see a performance about the human genome. Saturday morning, the EWS Dance Co performed at the Little Sisters of the Poor and got to socialize afterwards with the residents. The last class the Dance Co got to take was an Afro-Haitian class at the Dance Complex in Cambridge, was very tiring, but worth taking.
