There were many fantastic stories at St. Paul's School for Girls this year. As we prepare to welcome 2019, join us in taking a look back at 10 of those stories from 2018.
On Thursday, December 6, the Board of Trustees of The St. Paul's Schools announced the appointment of Dr. Jefferson Huang as the Schools' inaugural president. Dr. Huang comes to St. Paul's from Claremont McKenna College, a top-ranked liberal arts college in Claremont, California, where he is Vice President and Senior Advisor to the President as well as Assistant Professor of Philosophy.
At the St. Paul's School for Girls Leadership Donor Celebration on Thursday, October 18, we announced the surprise dedication of the Penny B. Evins Learning Commons—a dynamic new learning space named in honor of our Head of School. This project was made possible by a generous gift from current parents John and Barbara Wakeman P'19.
Head of School Penny Evins shared a talk with SPSG students about what it means to be a bold and courageous woman.
The SPSG spring dance concert will run as scheduled tonight, May 11 and tomorrow, May 12 at 6:30 p.m.
Due to construction on campus, power and septic on the campus has been affected. All after-school activities have been canceled. Please pick up your children as soon as possible. We will have information regarding the dance concert at 4:15 PM.
"Within schools, we discuss feedback, evaluations, and growth with ease — when it comes to students. Whether in advanced calculus or on the basketball court, we provide them with formal and informal assessments on a regular basis. We measure their understanding, and we craft commentaries about their performance, habits and character. However, delivering and receiving feedback is less comfortable for adults. Five years ago, when I was in my first year at St. Paul's School for Girls, I set out to change this dynamic."
With warmth and enthusiasm, I welcome you to the start of our 2017-18 school year at St. Paul's School for Girls! As we are all connected with the school year calendar, we share the common joys of anticipating a fresh start, continuing our journey as lifelong learners, renewing and building new relationships, and fostering an inclusive and respectful "home away from home" for your daughters.
Each year, SPSG 5th grade theatre students write a one-act play, which they submit to Center Stage's Young Playwrights' Festival (YPF). The YPF competition receives hundreds of submissions from all around the state of Maryland, and The Bad Llamas, written by Sophie Marano '24, was selected as one of 15 honorees! She visited Center Stage for a workshop where she partnered with a playwright mentor to polish her piece, and was honored during the mainstage ceremony on May 2. On June 2, YPF staff and actors from Center Stage visited SPSG to perform a staged reading of her play.
As a certified Maryland Green School, St. Paul's School for Girls is grateful for the support of the Lockhart Vaughan Foundation as we strive to increase awareness and education about the importance of environmental sustainability within our community. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and preparing our students, in accordance with our mission, to become conscientious community members and active environmental citizens who serve in the world.
"Choices are in abundance, but making healthy choices is the key to success. Finding meaning and purpose in one's life is an area for discussion where our alumnae—no matter their zip code, graduation year, or lifestyle—want to linger."
We are thrilled to have been featured in a recent opinion piece published in The New York Times! At SPSG, we pride ourselves on making each individual student's strengths stronger. With loving and wise guidance from our faculty and staff, we strive to find the voice inside each and every student.
