This Month at Stuart
Today it was announced that the "Fearless Girl" statue facing the Charging Bull in Manhattan's Financial District, who was installed on International Woman's Day, March 8, will stay until February 2018. We know the power of women –and girls- in leadership! That's why hundreds of girls and women will gather at Stuart on Saturday, April 8 for #LEADLIKEAGIRL: A Conference for Risk-Takers and Changemakers to showcase and inspire girls' confidence, creativity and leadership.
The Stuart campus was relatively quiet these past two weeks while our girls were away, but the world was their classroom as they embarked on countless adventures over spring break. Our families sent in photos to share on social media from 8th grade exchange to "getting kicks on Route 66." Check out the photo gallery to see what some of our girls were up to!
During the second half of spring break, 16 members of the varsity lacrosse team spent five days down in sunny Florida with Hogan Lax Spring Team Training. The team was able to practice multiple times a day (without worrying about snow) and participated in three scrimmages against schools from across the country. Our athletes learned new stick skills and lacrosse drills from the Hogan Lax coaches. All of the team's hard work was rewarded with a fun day at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. Other great experiences on the trip included: a lecture from an ex-Marine specialist, a team dinner, and seeing an alligator right outside of the rooms! Come see all of the hard work that the team put in over break at their scrimmage on Tuesday at 4:00 PM or at their first home game of the season this Wednesday at 4:00 PM against Gill St. Bernard's School! See photos from the trip in the gallery.
