As part of our comprehensive Strategic Long Range Plan, SHA is committed to enhancing our student experience by optimizing existing community spaces. We invite you to join us in our current effort to refresh the mansion living room, small dining room and sun porch spaces. When not in use for a gathering of alumnae or parents or friends, these connected rooms are used most often by our students. Students gather in these areas for lunch with their friends, student club meetings, advisory, as a casual auxiliary classroom, and much more. These spaces serve as the "center" of our School House and Dooley Buildings, thus connecting our K-12 students.
An update to these areas would include furniture enhancements that will provide much-needed flexibility and functionality. Active-learning and community-building in these rooms reminds us of the impact a Sacred Heart education has on our students. We look forward to modernizing this environment to share these inviting spaces with parents, faculty, alumnae and visitors.
This year's Fund-A-Need will directly support these improvements and enhancements.
