Lenox Memorial Middle and High School students explore Washington, D.C.

The trip is designed to augment the broad spectrum of curriculums offered at LMMHS. Most often, at least half of a group attending this trip has never traveled to the capital.

Lenox — Principal Jeremiah Ames is pleased to share that more than 100 Lenox Memorial Middle and High School (LMMHS) students recently traveled to Washington, D.C.

For four days in March, 105 LMMHS sophomores and juniors explored the nation’s capital. The annual Washington trip has been strictly reserved for juniors in the past, but moving forward, it will be a sophomore trip. This year, the transition year, LMMHS allowed both classes to participate to ensure no student missed the opportunity.

The trip is designed to augment the broad spectrum of curriculums offered at LMMHS. Most often, at least half of a group attending this trip has never traveled to the capital.

Students visited a variety of museums and monuments including the White House and National Mall, the World War II Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian Institution Museums, the Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Lincoln Memorial, and the U.S. Museum of African-American History and Culture, among others.

The D.C. trip was coordinated by LMMHS staff members Sara Hamilton, Robin Getzen, David Pugh, and Lisa Wespiser.

“This trip to our nation’s capital is an event that our students look forward to each year,” said Principal Ames. “Not only is it a wonderful opportunity for Lenox students to get out of the classroom and experience the world outside of Lenox, but the trip allows our students to take what they’ve learned from the curriculum and apply it to real-world experiences. Thank you to all of the trip’s coordinators and everyone involved in making the D.C. trip successful!”

“I used to think a Simon’s Rock education was about going fast, college early, big ideas,” commencement speaker Michael Lawrence told graduates. “Now I think it’s about slowing down a little, making time and space to doubt, to dialogue, to discover, and to see these as actions, not ideas, that are crucial even and perhaps, especially when the world pushes you to speed up, get in line, and have it all figured out."
