Knowing one another extends beyond the classroom and even our campus. At Saint Mary’s Hall, every student is known and matters. During the first few weeks of school, we pledge to you that we will engage with every student on a personal level, fulfilling our commitment of KNOW AND BE KNOWN.
We are committed to one of the most vital portions of the SMH experience—strengthening our community building efforts in our ONE|SMH Virtual (Red) Phase. Events, including Baron Bazaar, Blue Tie, Convocation, field trips, and so much more, are essential parts of the academic year. We are planning specific moments to help connect students to their faculty, our campus, and each other.
Treasured activities such as Lower School Morning Moments, and Middle/Upper School Chapel, Assembly, Advisory, Club/Council meetings will continue to be a part of students’ schedules.
Lower School students will begin each day with a Morning Meeting to create opportunities for faculty to understand their social-emotional needs and to foster community-building and a deeper classroom connection. Teachers for Forms 3, 4, and 5, as well as all Fine Arts/PE/World Language teachers, will rotate between classrooms rather than students changing rooms.
