Staying Connected to St. Margaret's School

Happy New Year to all Alumnae of St. Margaret's.

We hope 2017 was wonderful to you all and want you to continue to stay connected with SMS in 2018! Here are a couple of updates from the School and important dates to keep on your radar.

St. Margaret's was thrilled to start the year off by inviting our Young Alumnae back to campus to catch up and see old friends. They participated in a panel for our Junior and Senior girls and shared their college experiences. It is always great seeing our alumnae back on campus and hearing how SMS prepared them for life in college, and beyond. Click here to see photos from the day.

Head of School Catherine M. Sgroi P'00 was recently featured in the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star for her leadership at St. Margaret's. For those who missed this article, please have a read and help Cathy and St. Margaret's by thinking of young women you may know that could benefit from an SMS education.

Finally, after tremendous feedback last year, St. Margaret's so graciously sent 2018 wall calendars again this year. If you did not receive one, please contact Brittany Jenkins to receive your copy.

Many blessings to you and your family for the New Year!
