After a slow-paced start to the week, the second half of the week was incredibly eventful and busy both on and off campus. Thirty-five students taking economics classes traveled to the New York Stock Exchange
on Thursday, April 26 to see what the “real world” of banking and investing is like. On Thursday morning, Lawrenceville School Head Master Liz Duffy spoke in the Center For The Arts during the Chapel period about the shared past and future of The Hill and Lawrenceville
. Thursday also marked the opening of j-ball season, which traditionally begins during the second list of the spring term.
The boys’ lacrosse team played its final home game on Friday and used the occasion to honor the team’s sixth formers before a thrilling 7-6 victory over Brunswick School. That evening, the Hilltones and Hilltrebles performed their annual spring concert.
A grandparents’ brunch kicked off an eventful Saturday that also included the dedication of the School’s new baseball field and a celebration of 125 years of baseball
at The Hill. Former head coach James “Doc” Finn was honored for his 33 years as the team’s head coach during the dedication.
With Sunday’s nice weather came lots of outdoor activities such as frisbee and volleyball, followed by a buffet dinner that was prepared by members of the sixth form. The day was capped off with an outdoor concert by a group featuring A.C. Lao ’96.
