On Monday, fifth grader Alina Xu gave Mr. Missonis a break and took over as Head of Middle School for the day! Alina used her powers to treat her friends and the faculty to a dress up or dress down day! She ordered chocolate chip cookies for goûter and spaghetti & meatballs with ice cream for lunch. Alina even sat at the faculty table during lunch! It was a great day in the Middle School! Special thanks to Mr. Xu and Mrs. Yan for their generosity at last year's Spring Gala and Auction.
The Middle School at Stuart
The Middle School years are a time for Stuart girls to discover who they are, what they want to become and how they want to make a difference in the world. We challenge and support our girls through this process as they mature spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically.
Our innovative curriculum and 1:1 iPad program provide students with essential 21st century skills, including effective communication, critical thinking and problem solving. Outside the classroom, girls develop an awareness and commitment to social justice through discussion and service to others.
A comprehensive advisory program, extensive club offerings, strong athletics and an exchange student opportunity in eighth grade allow our girls to build confidence in their abilities to lead, compete and collaborate.

Ms. Habicht's and Ms. Davidovich's eighth grade math students perfected their graphing of linear inequalities skills during a scavenger hunt on Tuesday. Students needed to match inequalities with their graphs and/or match graphs with their inequalities.
Last week our eighth grade students enjoyed an exciting and memorable three day experience in Washington D.C. This signature experience helps give life and meaning to many of the Goals and Criteria of the Sacred Heart for our students. It was an opportunity for our girls to connect with the history of our country and with each other.
