Mottolese leads presentation at innovation and collaboration conference
CBS Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan '98 spoke with Upper School students this week about media literacy leading up to November's election.
Like so many students around the country, Sacred Heart Greenwich senior Piper Gilbert was confined to her home in the spring and summer. But her focus was 40 million miles away. Gilbert, who has been interested in astronomy since she was young, is one of only two Connecticut students selected as an intern in the 2020 Student Enhancement in Earth and Space Science (SEES), a program offered by the University of Texas in partnership with NASA.
Three Sacred Heart Greenwich students have been named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists: Cecilia Duncan, Emily Newton and Beth Yeager.
“It’s been the most emotional start to a school year,” Marvin, a Spanish teacher at Sacred Heart, said as she stood near an entrance to the school where a line of cars was dropping off eager Lower School students. “This is the longest the kids have gone without seeing each other. This is the grandest opening we’ve had, and it’s the most exciting and emotional return to school we’ve had.” Around Marvin, and at other entrances to the school, Upper School students danced and cheered with pom-poms — and requisite masks — as they welcomed their classmates back after a long time away.
Named the new head of school at Sacred Heart Greenwich back in January, Margaret “Meg” Frazier had many months to prepare for her new role at a new school. And it turned out that she definitely needed the extra time. In addition to starting a new job, Frazier was met with the challenge of reopening the private all-girls Catholic K-12 school in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
