September 2020 | Staying Connected

Dear St. Margaret's School Alumnae,
Excitement is in the air at St. Margaret's! We've welcomed students back to campus for our centennial year. Classes have commenced with our COVID-19 Mitigation Strategy in place. Check out this video our student leaders created with some of the precautions that our community is taking to avoid transmitting COVID-19.

We are planning for engaging virtual alumnae events in the coming months, including Golden Thistle, our Annual Meeting, and Young Alumnae Day. More information will be shared soon for each of these events. For now, please mark your calendars:
Golden Thistle: Wednesday, October 14 from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. ET ; Email Ashley Haydon to RSVP
Alumnae Association Annual Meeting: Saturday, November 21
Young Alumnae Day: Wednesday, December 16
Our Alumnae Association Executive Board is excited to welcome new Steering Committee members to the Board! The Steering Committee will be leading the Alumnae Association through June 2021 when new members are appointed to the Alumnae Association Executive Board. You'll find more information, including our new Steering Committee members, below. Thank you to these volunteers for their commitment!

Are you interested in getting more involved with the Alumnae Association? We are looking for volunteers to join our committees. Call or email me for more information on these committees and opportunities to engage.

We hope you and your families are doing well and in good health. Thank you for being a valued member of our sisterhood.
Go Scotties!
