Cambridge Rindge and Latin Community Academic Challenge


Desmun Winner

Do you remember all the elements on the periodic table? How about the formula for determining the length of an arc on a circle?  Who was that president who served after Grover Cleveland?  Questions similar to these will be asked at the first annual Cambridge Rindge and Latin Community Academic Challenge entitled “Are You As Smart As A CRLS Student?” 

This test of knowledge is scheduled for Thursday, Mar. 29, from 7-9 p.m., 459 Broadway, Main Cafeteria, Cambridge.  Members of community organizations, schools, businesses and neighborhood groups are invited to enter teams of four colleagues to challenge teams of CRLS students in this exceptional battle of the brains.  Individuals are also welcome to register by themselves and will join others that night in creating a team. Trophies and prizes will be awarded. Please note; no life-lines, phone a friend or smart phones are allowed. 

The evening is part of Celebrate CRLS, a year-long program designed to better inform everyone in the city about the newly renovated high school and all its fantastic offerings and accomplishments. Music will be provided by the CRLS Jazz Ensemble and refreshments will be served.

Tours of the building will be offered from 6-7 p.m. so members of the community can see the many improvements and changes that were the result of the CRLS renovation completed in September 2011.

For more information about the evening and to register your team, contact Henry Lukas, retired CRLS Assistant Principal at  or visit
