Prepping for Mountain Day

Another school year has started at Cushing and soon, as we have done every year since 1926, we'll celebrate one of our most beloved traditions: Mountain Day. This year, students and faculty will hike Mount Monadnock on Tuesday, Sept. 26 (rain date: Sept. 28). Climbing the popular mountain is a wonderful community-building experience and the summit views of all six New England states can be remarkable during foliage season. For those who choose to stay at the base, there’s time to relax, take in the surroundings, play games, and join hikers upon their return for a picnic lunch. It's one of the best days of the whole year!
