Blast From the Past: 1934

October 5, 2019

As the season of making, revamping and joining new clubs is beginning, today’s CRLS students have a plethora of options to choose from. But do we have an "A.I." club? The all-boys, Rindge Technical School, a predecessor high school of CRLS, of 1934 did, and no it wasn’t a before-its-time artificial intelligence club, but rather an “Anti-Initial Society.” This student-run group began as the “Anti-Initial Society” until students decided they needed to be more severe, adopting the name “Anti-Idiot Society.” As suggested by the name, the club dedicated itself to identifying and humiliating those students who carved their initials into tables, defacing public property. When the students caught someone, they would punish the perpetrator by requiring them to wear a sign around his neck that read, “ I am an INITIAL CARVER and a MENACE to RINDGE TECHNICAL SCHOOL.” The carver would then be expected to explain himself and his rationale behind trying to make his initials seen.

CRLS’ Summer Trip to Japan

October 5, 2019

This past June 19th, four CRLS faculty members and seventeen CRLS students took a trip to Japan. These students applied to go on the trip and helped to fundraise. The trip was organized by Timothy Ogino and Kristin Knowlton, along with two other volunteer faculty chaperones, Denise Lee and Willis Dougherty. One of the latter, Mrs. Lee, was an active part of the fundraising process.  She explains, “It was difficult. We needed to raise a lot of money. We started out with a GoFundMe, the four adults that were chaperoning reached out to their networks, the kids reached out through their networks, we did bake sales, and some kids went door to door in their neighborhoods asking for money.”
