Lawrenceville Community Day Focuses on Healing

Each year, Lawrenceville’s Community Day uses a variety of lenses to examine an area of School-wide interest. In an effort to meet student needs during a challenging time in our community, this year’s event focused on lifelong tools for healing and growth through art, cooking, education, movement, nature, reflection and mindfulness, and service.

The day began with a keynote from Dr. Tonita Balcom, (director of Lawrenceville’s Psychological and Counseling Services) and members of the School counseling team on how to cope with grief and move towards healing. Lawrenceville employees shared their expertise and creativity through a host of self-care workshops for students. Yoga, games, crafts, songwriting, nature trail building, bike riding, run/walks, community service projects, and even a campus-wide scavenger hunt were among the many offerings before a lunchtime barbeque for students and employees.

Community Day was coordinated by Lawrenceville’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, led by Dean of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement Cameron Brickhouse, who said, “gathering in community is a way to get through grief.” She hopes students “will understand that we can experience so many emotions while we're moving through grief. We can experience joy. We can experience reflection. We can experience laughter and that's okay.”
