Founders Day

Saint Mary’s Hall (SMH) has many rich traditions holding special meaning and significance to the school community. We celebrated one of those honored traditions on November 19, our annual Founders’ Day. Despite the current challenges, SMH was still able to successfully and safely hold Founders’ Day on campus virtually. A number of the community attended, including seniors, with 6 ft. distance between seats and masks worn for safety. The rest of the student body and faculty watched the streamed event from their classrooms and homes.
