Homecoming Weekend 2019 has been filled with athletic competitions, flower crowns, a parade, bonfire, dancing, decorations, performances and other events. This year’s theme of the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock gave students and staff an opportunity to show both their LA Pride and love of bright tie-dye colors. In the Resident Life Program we are continuing to emphasize building community with activities that intentionally foster camaraderie within our diverse group of teens. We want students at LA to become comfortable building friendships with people from any background.
