LCM’s In-Shabbos Extravaganza

December 29, 2014

As if the past week’s Chanukah celebrations weren’t enough, LCM partied it up some more (and ate more, too!) at the past in-Shabbos hosted by Rabbi Shmulewitz. As per tradition, the in-Shabbos featured LCM’s favorite annual competitions, the cholent cook-off and dessert bake-off. Friday night’s winners for Best Cholent(s) was a tie between Beis Medrash L’Talmud kollel members Dov Moskowitz and Clarence Wilcox, the latter of whom won last year, too!

Anything But a Washout

May 20, 2014

Hello, Muddah! Hello, Fadduh!
Here I am at Camp Granada.
Camp is very entertaining,
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.
Wait a minute!
It's stopped hailing.
Guys are swimming.
Guys are sailing.
Playing baseball.
Gee! That's better.
Muddah, Fadduh, kindly disregard this letter!

(excerpt from Allan Sherman’s “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh”)

Well, it was Camp Dora Golding, not Camp Granada. And the rain didn’t stop. But a little (lot) of rain didn’t hold back LCM guys from having buckets of fun at our annual schoolwide Shabbaton! 

Student Government Elections Show Highest Voter Turnout to Date

And POTLCMSG* has almost as nice a ring as POTUS**.

How to Respond to an Active Shooter on Campus?

May 14, 2014

Back in the day we had our requisite fire drills and we were prepared. Unfortunately, the world is a scarier place and there have been too many school shootings. To be prepared for any scenario, LCM brought in an NYPD detective who gives active shooter training to educate students for such a scenario. LCM students learned about getting out of sight and out of range, that unlike a fire where you want to be down and out here you want to be up and away, individuals vs. groups, and hiding for a prolonged period of time.  The lecture was interactive and engaging, but this is one lecture we hope will remain purely hypothetical.
