Although the Alumnae Reunion took on a different shape this year, we are grateful for the opportunity to have gathered in-person this weekend, and would like to thank all the Alumnae who attended!
We would like to make a special mention of those alums who were unable to travel or attend the gathering - know you were with us in spirit, and you remain in our thoughts and hearts. We especially remember those classmates who have passed. May their memory be a blessing to us all.
A recording of the beautiful liturgy celebrated by Fr. Vallee has been made available and can be viewed by clicking here.
We would also like to share the video montage featuring the Carrollton of today which can be viewed by clicking here.
Lastly, events such as the Reunion would not be possible without your generosity and support. We are grateful to all the Alumnae who have made a reunion gift thus far - your support has helped ensure Carrollton's ability to implement the resources necessary to offer in-person learning for most of the year, as well as assist those families who have had financial emergencies as a consequence of the pandemic.
There is still time to make a gift and support the Blue vs. Gold Reunion Giving Challenge!

Carrollton faculty members honored the memory of their colleague, Raquel Carvajal, at St. Augustine’s 12:30 mass on February 18th. In his homily Father Vallee gave testament to her dedication as a teacher by recounting a well-known line from the story “A Man for All Seasons”. In the play Sir Thomas More, Chancellor of England to Henry VIII, advises Richard, an ambitious young friend, to be a teacher. Richard scoffs: “A teacher, who will know?” Thomas replies: “You will know. Your students will know, and God will know. Not a bad audience that!”
Raquel shined among educators whose joy, fulfillment, admiration, and service to their profession are so well expressed in Thomas’ words. The Carrollton community prays for Raquel, her family, and all who have been so deeply affected by the pandemic crisis.
This past week we celebrated Catholic Schools Week alongside Catholic schools across the entire nation. Each day had a dedicated theme that was celebrated in all five of Carrollton's schools. They celebrated students, faculty, the nation, vocations and the community. From dressdown days, to homeroom activities and Zooms, to assembly visitors from the Vice Mayor of Coral Gables, and book readings and bible studies with the religious community members and faculty lunches, it was evident how special the Carrollton community is, and what a blessing Catholic education is. We are Sacred Heart!

On Sunday, January 10th Carrollton alumna, Isabella Leano '20, and Carrollton student, Anais Leitchling '21, were published in the Miami Herald Sunday Neighbors section for their second annual Smash Cancer Tennis-a-Thon.
They co-founded their charity two years ago when they bonded over their love for tennis, and since then have raised $6,500 of their $10,000 goal. They weren't going to let the pandemic stop them from raising funds this year, so they played six consecutive hours instead of the 12 hours last year, and arranged to play alongside other junior players, club pros and even former touring tennis professionals.
Their Carrollton community is so proud of them for recognizing a need, and adapting to the world's circumstances to make sure they still have an opportunity to serve those needs. They hope Smash Cancer "serves as an opportunity to honor victims and support survivors in their journey to a well-balanced, healthy and fulfilling life."
