Students from our PSU Challenge History of Modern Europe class taught by Mr. Vannelli attended and presented research papers at the 28th Annual Young Historians Conference at Portland State University on Wednesday, April 18.
Last month St. Mary’s Academy seniors attended Metanoia, a beloved SMA tradition and the culminating retreat for these young women before they graduate. This unique weekend experience is designed to inspire and provide a space for graduating students to reflect on their time at St. Mary’s Academy, the connections and friendships they’ve made and how these past four years will influence their goals and lives beyond our campus doors.
Leave it to St. Mary’s girls to figure out a way to combine science, art, service and innovation in order to positively impact our community and eliminate waste in the environment. During the past few months, students in Liane Rae’s TA class have been diligently working on crocheting sleeping mats constructed from plastic bags to provide a valuable resource to Portland’s homeless population and reduce waste caused by these common household items.
St. Mary’s Academy’s Beta Blues have been making waves these past few years. As the only all-girls robotics team in Oregon, they are continuously demonstrating the impact of women in STEM . This past year, our team had an exciting season and built a sophisticated robot which shows off their hard work and growing expertise.
