Welcome back to a new school year! Things may be looking a bit different this year, but we are so excited to have our girls back in our halls. From this first month back, it is so clear that our Bears are tenacious and ready to make the most of this year. Our senior Viaggio leaders and new House Captains are charging ahead with energy and spirit, and it shows in the energy that we see be replicated by the sophomores and freshmen. Though we may not be gathering as a full school community each day, there is a positive feeling of being together in heart.
We put a lot of emphasis on our core values in particular the development of the whole person and the development of a nurturing community spirit at Ursuline, not only in the classroom but through our programs and activities outside of them as well. This year is no different, and we have been hard at work to ensure that each girl has the support and opportunity to explore her interests and feel a part of our community.
So with our hybrid schedule, we have built in time for our clubs and organizations to meet whether girls are at home or in the classroom. We are also excited about our new House System and we look forward to expanding our Advisement and Big Sis/Lil Sis programs and creating new and more opportunities for getting involved. Now, having settled a bit more into our routines, I’m looking forward to seeing the cultivation of our students through these efforts and more.
