News from School
For the ninth consecutive year, St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's faculty and staff have reached 100 percent participation in the St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's Fund. Faculty co-chairs Beth Soleimany and Kat Thompson helped cheer on their fellow teachers to achieve this milestone just as staff and students returned from spring recess.
The impact of the annual fund can be seen in every corner of the school at any hour of the day, especially during the busy spring season. While students rehearse for Willie Wonka, this year's spring production, the annual fund helps ensure that they have beautiful costumes to wear and life-like props to hold.
Student athletes run in track meets and step up to the plate in baseball games wearing uniforms and using equipment purchased with annual fund dollars.
Sixth and seventh grade scientists are experimenting with the scientific method thanks to donations made to the Fund.
Visitors to the Art Show at the end of April will have a chance to see how support for the Fund allows students to flex their creative muscles.
"By reaching 100 percent participation in the annual fund, our faculty makes a strong statement about how much they care for their students and how deeply they believe in the work of this school," says Alexandra Lubensky, assistant director of development. "With just three months till the close of school, we hope that the parents who haven't yet made their gifts will follow the faculty's lead and unite behind the Fund once again!"
