Staying Connected to St. Margaret's School


October was a fun-filled month at St. Margaret's and we want to share some highlights with you.

Thank you to all runners, walkers, and volunteers who joined us for the Fortson 5K River Run. A special thanks goes to this year's Chair, Mary Catherine Sargeant '08.

We also had a busy month with events in Richmond. We held our annual Golden Thistle luncheon at Westminster Canterbury, and then later in the month, we had a great time at the home of Pettus and Ellen LeCompte '71, who hosted our Leadership Donor reception.

The Class Notes deadline was at the end of the month and we are pleased that so many of you submitted your news. Thank you for keeping SMS informed of your news and whereabouts. This year's Bridge will be mailed in mid-February 2019 when you'll be able to read about friends and classmates.

Below are more exciting St. Margaret's events coming up. Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving.
