A huge thank you to students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumnae who helped with our Christmas Project this year. We sent more than 500 toys and gifts to the children who are seen at the Codman Square Health Center in Dorchester – the staff there was so very appreciative! We also sent gifts of clothes and toys to the children living in temporary shelter at Carolina Hill in Marshfield and to children whose parents are studying at Notre Dame Education Center in South Boston.
Ms. Keary, Ms. Ahearn and 11 students traveled to Washington, DC to attend the "Teach-In for Social Justice" conference hosted by the Ignatian Solidarity Network (a Jesuit non-profit group.)

Following the weekend conference, the group made their way to Capitol Hill and met with a member of Senator Warren's staff.

This September, French Teacher Laura Corkery shared an article with her students about the importance of girls' education around the globe. Annabelle O'Neill '15 was inspired to act when the article noted that just $56 can pay the annual tuition for girls in Afghanistan or the Congo. She asked her classmates to donate $5 each and they made a contribution to the International Rescue Committee.
