  • Family Ties

    By Tyler Nielsen on August 26, 2013
    Go comment! I grew in CO, but my Dad (Jerel Nielsen) grew up in Cedar Falls and he and his siblings attended PLS as well as four of my cousins. When I was a kid, we would take tours of the school because my two uncles were faculty at the time. It was always special for me to see the schoo...
  • Making mobiles

    By Dr. Seon Chun-Burbank on August 20, 2013
    Go comment! I collected my dissertation data at MPLS. Teachers, administrators, parents, and children were so helpful and supportive. Having MPLS nearby helped me to complete my doctorate on-time so I could get a full-time job (so that I could stay at US not going back to Korea.) Thank you...

    One day, while reading the job announcements in the Des Moines Register, my husband said to me, “There is a science job at the Lab School. You should apply.” I was just finishing graduate work on my doctorate and I had planned to stay home with my young daughte...

  • Double Memories

    By Mary Flannery Brown on July 07, 2013
    Go comment! I have memories of being at the Lab school with my dad, Cliff Flannery, who was custodian there from roughly 1959-1971. Sometimes I would go with him when he went down into the bowels of the school under the swimming pool to add the chemicals to the water. There were all thes...
