Learning from Cradles to Crayons

Children at all levels work with Cradles to Crayons, an organization that provides children what they need to thrive and learn: clothing, books, and school supplies. LMS students learn the value of giving for re-use good quality items for children in need, how an organization like Cradles to Crayons works, and what it means to work on behalf of others.

MLK Day in Lexington

For the past five years, the LMS community has played an important role in making Lexington's MLK Day of Service a success. Along with families from the wider community, LMS parents and students come together to make greeting cards for the underserved. Hundreds of beautifully crafted cards have been delivered to U.S. Veterans, residents of elderly housing facilities, patients at the Ronald McDonald House, and several other important non-profits in the area. While COVID-19 may prevent this event from happening in 2021, we look forward to returning to playing a big role in this important celebration. 

Community Fun Run and 5K

For ten years, LMS has sponsored a Children's Fun Run and a 5K in Lexington open to the school community as well as the town and surrounding area. Hundreds of adults and children participate in this worthwhile event. The 10th annual happened this past spring during the pandemic but that did not stop the community from having our best year ever. LMS went virtual and had incredible attendance with our best fundraising year yet. Go LMS!

Summer at Horizons @ LMS

Every summer children attend Horizons at Lexington Montessori School, a six-week Montessori summer school for children from Waltham and Lexington who could not otherwise afford a summer school experience or Montessori education at LMS. Children return every summer through 8th grade to bolster their language and math skills and to learn conflict resolution, gardening, swimming and the experience of learning in a small community. While COVID-19 has changed how the program has looked during the summer of 2020, it has continued to thrive. 

Local and Global History

Middle School students shared at the Cary Library in Lexington an art piece they created collaboratively when studying the Holocaust. The book they illustrated and wrote about a Holocaust survivor, whom the students met, was displayed in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day and is now part of the Local Authors section at the library.

More ways LMS students participate

Middle school students participate in the community in many ways, including volunteering at Cradles to Crayons, visiting and playing sports with the Cotting School, and creating and running a microgreens CSA over the winter.

LMS Pride in Boston

Parents, students, teachers, alumni, administrators and friends participate annually in the Boston Pride Parade in June. Waving rainbow flags, distributing LMS pencils, and proudly supporting LGBTQ community members, LMS marches with other schools and youth groups as one of our end-of-year activities. June of 2020 was no exception--the LMS community made this a special virtual celebration!
