May 25th is the Feast Day of our foundress, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat. We celebrated with a school mass, where the seniors are traditionally honored and blessed for their forthcoming life journeys. This year they were invited to attend in-person with their mothers, for their last Carrollton mass as students.
May the Holy Spirit and the spirit of Sophie continue to burn within you as you enter new endeavors as women of the Sacred Heart.
Over the last five years, the Carrollton Spirit Store has given back 100% of its earnings to benefit Carrollton's Financial Aid Program. Since the time of its establishment, it has raised $100,000! Thank you to Pilar Cendoya Alvarez-Mena '77, and all the alumnae volunteers who manage the store, for your commitment to the school and your belief in the mission!
Congratulations to Isabela Delgado '24 for being selected as a Fellow in the inaugural class of The Hafize Gaye Erkan First Republic Fellowship ProgramSM. This is an inaugural program that selects ten young women in Grade 9 (Class of 2024) at National Coalition of Girls’ Schools (NCGS) member schools to receive a $5,000 USD grant per year in each year of their high school education. Funds from the grant will be used for STEM educational services and programs at Carrollton. Mentorship is a fundamental component of the fellowship. Isabela will participate in a mentorship program that includes academic counselors, business professionals and executive leaders.
Isabela is an integral member of the Underwater ROV (Remote Operating Vehicle) Robotics team, is president and founder of the “Power of Play” club at Carrollton, which aims to boost patient recovery and wellness with activities for hospitalized children, and was part of the Dream in Green Design and Build Competition to design and build an architectural model addressing sea level rises in Miami. She hopes to continue her passion and interest in STEM at Carrollton through the Robotics club and the Dream in Green competition team, as well as continuing to serve others and lead by example.
Congratulations to Kjerstin Clayborne '30, Emma Jimenez '25, and Mairead Gatcliffe '21 for receiving this year's ISSF Star Award. Each year our school nominates the best all-around students to be recognized for their achievements in numerous areas, such as academics, community service, citizenship, fine arts, athletics, dedication and good character. It is our honor to recognize these students for their efforts and achievements!
ISSF normally holds a luncheon where the students are presented with their award, but this year they have prerecorded the award ceremony which can be viewed here.
Ceci Mestre '21, Senior President of the National English Honor Society
The National English Honor Society collaborated with O, Miami to organize the project "Bus Stops," as part of their annual O, Miami Poetry Festival. Students from the Primary and Intermediate schools were asked to create Zip Ode poems. These are poems in which your zip code determines the number of words in each line of the poem. The poems by Ella Wester '28, Isla Knott '28, Emiliana Macedo '27, and Audrey Mas '32 were selected to replace bus stop advertisements throughout Coconut Grove. The project aims to expose people to poetry while by "taking over" a venue that is used to sell things to people. We hope that by replacing the advertisements, the poems allowed them to remember the wonder of the Grove, as seen through the eyes of young students. The project was coordinated by O, Miami with the help of Ceci Mestre '21 and Mrs. Azan.
As you drive to school, you can see the poems at these locations: 1. Coconut Grove Welcome - South Miami Ave. & Brickell Ave. 2. Hermitage: 2001 S. Bayshore Drive 3. Kennedy Park: 2440 S. Bayshore Drive 4. Kampong: 3970 S. Douglas Road
