    Happy December Parents!

    The halls have been filled with happy singing and laughter ever since we returned from Thanksgiving break and it’s been music to our ears.

Christmas Break is fast approaching and will be filled with our December birthday dinner this week and final exams next week. Below are some of the fun events we’ve done recently and more to come next month.
  • November News from the Boarding Hall

    Hello! We are well into our year here at the boarding hall and enjoying the beautiful weather on the Hill. We’ve had an eventful month with lots of outings to break up the studying and preparing for college applications. As we head into Thanksgiving break soon, take a look at the bottom for some important dates to help you make travel plans. 😊

    We had our monthly Birthday Dinner on October 17 in the boarding hall. We had a Halloween theme and the girls and staff all dressed up for a fun evening. The boarding council planned a delicious fall themed menu and the dining hall was decorated beautifully for the event.

  • Junior Ring Ceremony 2018

    With custom handshakes, dance moves and hugs, seniors present class rings to their junior sisters, who reciprocate with single red roses. Sr. Celeste was on hand to bless the rings and our students during this tradition that dates back to the earliest days on the Hill. Reflecting on the meaning of the moment, senior Ella Blain remarked, "Some days you just want to hold on. Junior Ring is a symbol of holding on. It will bring us back to this place and our experiences here."
  • October Boarding Hall News

    Happy Fall! 

    We had our first birthday dinner of the year to celebrate July, August and September birthdays on September 19 and it was a blast! We had a beach-themed party on the senior lawn, including a water balloon fight, and a party in the pool. We’ll enjoy some great bbq, summer sun and time together as a boarding hall. Faculty member John Pettersson organized a tournament of the lawn game Kubb during the Boarding Hall Retreat. All the students participated and had a wonderful time.

    Sept. 29 - 30, we have our annual boarding hall retreat. This was a chance for our entire boarding hall community to come together and spend time together exploring the themes of family, kinship, community and sisterhood. The theme this year was “Love Who You Arem” and included team building games, boarding council led talks, small group discussions, and prayer services. It was a wonderful weekend full of camaraderie, togetherness, and bonding.
