    Caption: Lab Schools centennial

    The Laboratory Schools' centennial celebration kicked off Jan. 21, as a capacity crowd of parents, students, alumni and other friends of the schools filled Rockefeller Memorial Chapel to sing songs from the past 100 years; a reception with 100 birthday cakes followed at the Lab Schools. Among the celebrants was Ida DePencier (seated, center), a retired teacher who at age 102 is a cherished member of the Lab Schools family. Gathered around DePencier are (left to right) Hanna Goldschmidt, U-High Principal; Peter Page, School Nurse; Catherine Erickson, retired teacher; and three members of the Lab Schools' younger generation of students.
