Congratulations to the entire cast and crew on an amazing production! Bravo!
The fifth grade class began the electrical engineering, circuit design and robotics portion of their Build It! class this week by making Thanksgiving Day cards with conductive tape and LEDs. To make the cards, students used a yellow/orange LED and poked it through paper. The circuit was designed using a three-volt battery and conductive tape. The girls then folded over the edge to create an on-off switch. In their original works of art and engineering, students expressed their thanks to their parents for sending them to SHC and siblings for their guidance and support. School of the Holy Child community joins together in wishing everyone a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
Congratulations to all of our fall varsity teams, who each made the 2014 NYSAIS tournament – what a commendable achievement! As the fall season concludes, we celebrate the accomplishments of each SHC team, including cross country, field hockey, soccer and volleyball. We look forward to the winter season, which began last week with basketball, indoor track and field, squash and swimming. Congratulations to all of our athletes! GO GRYPHONS!!!!!
Head of School Bill Hambleton joins with his advisees to celebrate the progress being made on the construction of the school's new Field House. As the American flag flies high on top of the steel that frames our new facility, concrete has been poured on the floor below, and our new athletic building draws closer to completion. A reflection of the outstanding athletic accomplishments of our students, Holy Child's future Field House will provide 22,000 square feet of state-of-the-art amenities, including two full-size gyms, fitness rooms, and a dance studio. "This is an exciting time at School of the Holy Child. Thanks to the generosity of so many, our Field House will provide an exceptional facility where our students can perform and compete at the highest level," Dr. Hambleton said.
Holy Child recently hosted "Hoops Night" in our school gym. SHC seventh and eighth graders and their guests from neighboring schools enjoyed a fun evening of basketball, dancing and pizza. A wonderful opportunity to enjoy each other's company outside the school day, "Hoops Night" reinforces Holy Child's commitment to our students' well-being. As important it is to pursue academic excellence and find joy in learning, Holy Child is dedicated to creating programs that encourages the girls to relax and have fun. Play time is important to healthy brain development and allows the girls to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength.
