#SummerStories from the Stuart community

#SummerStories from the Stuart community

Over the summer months, we asked you, our Stuart community, to share your #summerstories with us. Whether you are globetrotting to other Sacred Heart schools, being a risk-taker with a new skill, or running into fellow classmates and alumnae at local events, we want to share those moments with everyone! For as we all know - no matter where or how far you go, Stuart and Sacred Heart is always with us! We will be updating this feed throughout the summer; if you want to be featured, send your photos and a brief description to

Stuart parent Herman Sanchez sent us these great photos of his family traveling with Flat Phillippine at Sagrat Cor Diputació (a Sacred Heart School in Barcelona) and Mt Montjuic Castle in Barcelona.

Rising ninth graders Isabella and Jaelyn play for a club lacrosse team, Ultimate Lacrosse, and they recently won overall in their bracket for 2022s at the Project120 tournament in Maryland. Here is a link to the tourney info:

From Paula Jones, assistant to the head of school and current parent - "Charlotte (class of '27) was Clara Barton this year for Women We Admire Day, and we saw her ambulance at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History when we stopped in D.C. We then visited the birthplace of Juliette Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, in Savannah, Georgia. Charlotte just bridged to a Junior Girl Scout before our trip. If anyone wants to see all of our road trip exploits, they can search #jonesfamilyroadtrip2018 on Facebook or Instagram!"

From Emily Lesinski, Upper and Middle School religion teacher: "Eileen Lesinski '27 has been busy taking day trips all around NJ. She loves history and learning all about the past. This month she has been to the Sterling Hill Mine, George Washington's Headquarters in Morristown, Liberty Hall in Union, Turtle Back Zoo, and the Thomas Edison museum."

From Stacey Reece, mother of Tori Reece '25: "Tori recently spent two weeks boarding at Deerfield Academy's Experimentory Program in Deerfield, MA. She took two PBL courses - Sustainability and Urban Design. In Sustainability, she and her partner built an aquaponic system with a thorough understanding of the science involved in sustaining a natural scientific balance. Her thesis in the class was the effects of poor nutrition on our society as a result of improper farming practices and how the use of aquaponic systems can improve this. She thoroughly enjoyed the class and is excited to come back to Stuart and share what she has learned.

In Urban Design she redesigned Boston's Back Bay Area using the app Sketch Up, incorporating several design ideas from various global cities including her hometown city of Trenton. She and her partner presented their design and shared their learning experiences.

In her extracurricular activities, she spent several hours playing her favorite pastime basketball with some new friends from Hong Kong and performing in a dance group. She was the youngest student there, as the program was open to students entering seventh and eighth grade. Despite her young age, she was commended by her teachers and peers for her strong academic and leadership skills.

Ann John '19 made a Sacred Heart connection at her summer scholars program -- "I've spent the last two weeks at Yale for their Young Global Scholars Program. The program consisted of lectures and seminars about politics, law, and economics that were taught by Yale professors and graduate students. On the first day, I heard a girl say that she goes to a Catholic school and I interject and said that I also went to Catholic school. We got to talking and it turned out that she goes to Sacred Heart Greenwich! From that first conversation, we instantly clicked and had so much fun for two weeks."
