Class of '22 Steps Into the Future

Seniors took one final stroll through the Regina Halls in their Saddle shoes on May 23rd for their Senior Farewell. During the ceremony, they reminisced on their four years at Regina, offered advice to the underclassmen, and took the time to thank everyone who helped them along their journey.

On May 26, they celebrated Honors Convocation, Baccalaureate Liturgy, and their Graduation Ceremony at St. Isidore. Congratulations Class of 2022 and welcome to the Regina Alumnae Association!

Connecting for a Cause

The Connect4Cancer Club is a new club at Regina for the 2021-22 academic year. The students raised $1,292.50 this year to support patients suffering from cancer. Of that amount, $904 was donated to organizations such as Turn the Town Teal, the American Brain Tumor Association, Cancer Care, and a young woman recently diagnosed with cervical, ovarian, and uterine cancer. Students most recently donated to a melanoma organization in May. The remaining balance has gone to supplies for the club, as well as stickers specially designed for the Regina community in support of Connect4Cancer. The club will be donating the stickers to the student body in gratitude for the generosity of our students and staff. Connect4Cancer is honored to serve those who are suffering and their families!

Saddlelites Take Center Stage

Samantha Brown '22 and Allison Krass '25 represented Regina in the tenth annual Sutton Foster Awards, hosted by Michigan State University at the Wharton Center for the Performing Arts. Regina was among 25 schools selected to compete in this prestigious high school musical theater competition. Schools are adjudicated by two local judges who then select two students to compete in the state awards, which is a precursor to the national Jimmy Awards held annually in NYC. Talented kids from all across the country compete in the Jimmys on Broadway for a chance to win scholarships and opportunities in the performing arts.

Samantha was recognized for her performance as Sister Mary Amnesia and Allison for her portrayal of Sister Robert Ann from the March production of Nunsense, held on Regina’s cafeteria stage. Both girls also had leading roles in the fall musical, Legally Blonde. Drama and music director Eleonore Ellero '87 stated, “With this competition, we have an outstanding opportunity for girls to participate in a competitive performance arena and gain experience and advice from top-notch professionals who work with them all weekend on the show. I’m thrilled that we can offer this to our very talented performers here at Regina!”

Next up, this fall…everyone’s favorite, Mamma Mia, is to be performed the weekend of November 18- 20, 2022, at Clintondale High School’s theater space. Stay tuned for more information!

Believe and Become

For over 65 years, Regina has guided young women. We are proud to share another story of a successful alumna, Chiara Clayton ‘94.  She stated, “Because Regina believed in me, I have been able to become the well-rounded, confident, community-minded, and spiritually-based woman that I am today.” Help us provide more young women with the opportunities to find their voice by supporting Regina’s Annual Fund.

Reuniting at Regina

The classes of 1970, 1971, and 1972 came together to celebrate their 50th Anniversary of Graduation in late May. These Saddlelite sisters came back to Regina for a celebration mass where they received commemorative "50th Anniversary" pins during a special blessing. After Mass, a reception was held in the cafeteria with hors d'oeuvres, Regina memorabilia, and a chance to walk down memory lane with their classmates. Congratulations to all alumnae who celebrated their milestone anniversaries with us!

Rockin' Regina Roller Coasters

The Honors Physics class took a hands-on approach by creating roller coasters in class. Students had to create a ride using only paper and tape that would take their marble passenger at least one minute to ride. This activity was a fun way to reinforce theoretical concepts taught in class by Mrs. Debra Prakobkij, who was selected as Regina’s Teacher of the Year in 2021. She is the Science Department Head and has been working tirelessly this year to bring interactive STEM projects to the students of Regina.

Saddle Service with a Smile

We put the Franciscan values of Regina into action this semester with our second annual Saddles the Serve - Day of Service. In April, students made toys, mini blankets, and "Adopt Me" bandanas for various local animal organizations. Students also got to visit with some furry friends who came to participate in the festivities.

In May, we held our Beautification Day to clean up the school both inside and out. Students helped clean up the courtyards, athletic fields, front of the school, and the hallways. After a morning of hard work, everyone came together to enjoy a barbeque lunch.

Hopping into Summer

You may have heard of emotional support dogs or cats, but Regina has something unique: an emotional support bunny! Our little buddy, Mitten, is one form of stress relief that Regina offers to our students. In the last two years, he has worked with almost every student at Regina. This totals almost 400 girls! In his time away from work, mitten enjoys hopping around, taking long afternoon naps, and searching vigorously for treats. He is wishing all of our Saddelites- past, present, and future- a wonderful summer!
