On March 28, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education Legislation effective in kindergarten to third grade classrooms.

The Senior Class acknowledges and understands the concerns behind Senior Week. It is difficult to create an itinerary that serves every member of the Lasell Community, which is why we have collectively decided to address this article. In this, it is not our intention to cause issues, however it is important to defend the hard work our committee put in to create a week that was both COVID-19 precautious without losing the general attraction of the beloved Senior Week.

Last year I interviewed Charlotte Winslow, a Lasell Village resident with a deep knowledge of education and the community. Before this experience, I didn’t know much about Lasell Village. After attending a few Village events, and learning more about the residents, I wondered, why aren’t Lasell students more involved with the Village? Lasell Village and its residents provide on-campus employment opportunities for students, career advice, and can improve students’ experiences at Lasell.
