Hello from Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy!
We kicked off 2018 with a busy month in Residential Life, which included everything from our first-ever student-run intentional program to a magical day at Disneyland. Read below to see what we've been up to...
On February 10, we gathered in the chapel for our monthly prayer service— a guided meditation that focused on the people in our lives who offer us laughter, unconditional love, and support.
We welcomed our newest boarding student, Chelsea Shoobridge, to the boarding hall on Friday, February 12. We’re excited to continue to get to know Chelsea, and so excited to have a student from Brisbane, Australia in the halls. On Sunday, January 14, we took a small outing to Skyzone Trampoline Park—we were able to jump on giant trampolines, play dodgeball on a trampoline court, and play in a foam pit.
On January 22, we had our first intentional program run from start to finish by a student leader, Valerie Cheung. In November 2017, Valerie Cheung came to residential life staff with an idea--she wanted to share what she had learned during her summer internship at a hospital with her peers by planning and running one of our intentional programs. In December, Valerie met with staff to brainstorm ideas for the evening, and landed on the idea of keeping the night fun and active. Valerie spent December finalizing what she wanted to share, and created a Jeopardy game to run as the main component of the program. On January 22, students competed in dorm families, with one dorm family winning by a landslide. The winning dorm family won dinner off the Hill at Boiling Point with Ms. Katie.
We ended our month with a "Beauty and the Beast" themed boarding birthday dinner on January 24, and our annual outing to Disneyland on Saturday, January 27.
With February in full swing, we have a lot of fun things planned this month that will include exploring and celebrating cultures around the world.
