A Letter From the Principal

So also, you must consider in what manner you must esteem them,

For the more you esteem them, the more you will love them; the more you love them, the more you will care for and watch over them.

And it will be impossible for you not to cherish them day and night, and to have them all engraved in your heart, one by one, for this is how real love acts and works.
- From the Introduction of St. Angela Merici Counsels

Last night we celebrated the treasured, traditional Junior Ring Ceremony with our Class of 2023. I feel a particular connection to this class as I am an advisor for their grade level. I have watched the girls in my advisory and all the girls in this class grow from tentative freshman to juniors standing at the precipice of their final year in high school. It is an amazing privilege.

We welcomed them into Ursuline as freshmen at Convocation. We celebrated their embracing of Serviam as sophomores. When they graduate, we will mark their accomplishments and welcome them into a new relationship with Ursuline as alumnae. And as juniors, we call their names, and they receive their rings to symbolize the unique place they hold at Ursuline.
