Alumnae Au Courant JANUARY 2019

College Alumnae Congé

It was an especially busy day on the Sacred Heart Greenwich campus on Monday, January 7 as college-aged Sacred Heart alumnae from the classes of 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 joined Sacred Heart juniors and seniors for a lunch in the Core Center, the Upper School commons room. Six alumnae participated in a panel where they offered advice and answered students' questions about the college process and college life. The panelists also encouraged students to use the Sacred Heart alumnae network to learn more about the schools they are considering.

“Use your Sacred Heart resources. There are so many Sacred Heart girls at all the colleges you’re applying to that would all love to talk to you about it. You will learn a lot from a tour and accepted students day, but you will learn so much more from someone’s personal experience that also went through what you went through to get there.” - Claire O'Neil '15

Alumnae Basketball Reunion

Thanks to all of the alumnae who joined us for the basketball reunion on January 4. We loved seeing some familiar faces back on our home courts!

College-bound Athletes

So many college-bound alumnae in the Class of 2019! Read about it in the Greenwich Time.

Cornell University students, be sure to check out a lacrosse game next year featuring Grace Paletta '17 and Hilary Hoover '19, as well as alumnae playing lacrosse at the United States Naval Academy and Boston College! Next year you'll also find Tigers in the pool at Villanova University and Tufts University, on the turf at Princeton University and Hamilton College, and in the water at BucknellU. We hope you'll get out to cheer on your fellow Tiger alumnae!

Painting Party with Katy Grogan Garry '95

On December 18, Katy Grogan Garry '95 hosted a paint night for alumnae. This event concluded Katy's time as the artist-in-residence at Sacred Heart, where she has been working with Lower School art classes on exploring printmaking.

Dr. Peggy Whitson, IBM & NASA Visit at Sacred Heart Greenwich Featured on NBC Nightly News

Back in October, we had an out-of-this-world opportunity to welcome astronaut Dr. Peggy Whitson to campus to help us reopen the Hardey Observatory with brand new research-grade equipment thanks to the Parents' Association and our partnership with IBM and NASA. Not only did Dr. Whitson spend the day on campus meeting and inspiring students, but we also welcomed a panel of experts to discuss the value of engaging girls in STEAM education and the opportunity for girls to take their love for science beyond the classroom and into their careers.

On January 13, NBC aired a segment on Dr. Whitson and her focus on STEM education for girls -- all of which was filmed during her time at Sacred Heart Greenwich.

10 Year Anniversary of Kairos Retreat

The Class of 2020 recently participated in the three-day Kairos Retreat marking the 10 year anniversary of the tradition at Sacred Heart Greenwich. Starting with the Class of 2009, Kairos is a meaningful Upper School experience for the junior class as time away from academics, sports, and extracurricular commitments to reflect on how they are loved both by their God and by those closest to them.

Continuing Sister Sheehan's Legacy with a Christmas Tradition

Each Christmas, the Sacred Heart Greenwich community donates toys to children who attend the Head Start program at the Carver Center. Sister Rosemary Sheehan, Religious of the Sacred Heart, had close ties to the Carver Center and began the program Saturdays at Sacred Heart (SASH) to benefit financially disadvantaged children who are involved in the Carver Center programs. The Upper School Community Service Club, under the direction of Mrs. Kerry Bader, Upper School Director of Social Justice and Service and Peer Leadership Co-Moderator, continues this tradition and honors Sister Sheehan’s legacy.
