One of the best parts of every weekend at Lawrenceville is 11:00 p.m. on a Saturday night. All of the girls in the House, boarders and day students alike, check-in with the Housemaster and then quickly gather in the Feed room. We all try to stand closest to the table to see the treat (Feed) for the night, a huge array of food that each House gets every Saturday depending on who in the House sponsors it.
This season for the girls’ varsity soccer team was filled with many ups and a few downs but our last game of the season was definitely one of our best moments. We were playing the Hun School of Princeton and winning would mean were undefeated in the Mid Atlantic Prep League or MAPL (consisting Hill, Blair, Mercersburg, Peddie, Hun, and us) and we’d claim the championship.
A free period is something that is hard to come by at the beginning of your time at Lawrenceville. But once you have it, you know how productive and necessary a 45-55 minute block during the day can be.
I️t was one of the biggest game of the year—boys’ varsity ice hockey vs Princeton Day School. This year’s year’s game was predicted to be the biggest yet because the game was at Princeton University’s Baker Rink instead of home or at PDS.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
