On May 15, the school community gathered for the Co-curricular Awards Ceremony, which celebrated girls' personal achievements in their varied co-curricular pursuits. Service, club program, foreign language exam, and select performing arts awards were distributed. Students who received recognition from outside organizations were also celebrated.

"St. Francis de Sales reminds us: 'Serve God where you are and do what you are doing… Continue to do what you are doing, and better than you are doing it.' This simple advice speaks to our honors this morning," said Principal Mary Kate Blaine. "The recognition we offer would be impossible without a sense of strivingand a desire to be fully present to where we are and to what we God asks of us."

Academic Awards Night on June 2 will recognize students' successes in the classroom, reveal the winning team (Gold or White), and bestow other major all-school honors.

Congrats to all students on a wonderful year filled with growth and learning!
