Student Reflections
Celebrating 150 Years of
Saint Mary's Hall

Shattuck-St. Mary’s welcomed alumnae back to campus on Saturday, October 29 in celebration of 150 years of Saint Mary’s Hall.

Festivities began with a noon service in Bishop Whipple Memorial Chapel and featured the singing of traditional hymns, musical performances from several Shattuck-St. Mary’s students, and remarks and prayer from Fr. Colin Maltbie. The program then shifted to the dining hall for lunch and opening remarks from Linda Stone Dasher ’56, followed by a celebratory program.

Director of Institutional Advancement, Lonnie Schroeder, moderated two panel discussions examining the life of women at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in 2016. The first examined the life of a woman at SSM as a faculty member or administrator, and featured a panel of school leaders that shared some of the ways in which the School has changed while retaining its core values. 

A second discussion featuring current SSM students followed, as alumnae learned how present juniors and seniors structure their school days with the emergence of ScholarShift, outlined the importance of carrying on school traditions and establishing new ones, and shared their plans for college and beyond.

The group was then treated to a harp performance from Abigail Hansen ’17 before receiving their copies of 150 Years of Saint Mary’s Hall commemorative books filled with photos, history, and school memories. The event concluded with coffee, dessert, and campus tours.

ScholarShift Stories: Race to the Finish Line

Participating Shattuck-St. Mary’s School students had the opportunity to explore and discuss the issue of race through a two-session module entitled Race: Are We Really So Different? The module was designed to encourage students to examine the biology, history, and modern existence of race and racism in America.

Led by History Instructors Joan Lewis-Osborne and Andrea Moyer, SSM students traveled to the Science Museum of Minnesota on Wednesday, October 26 to attend the Science Live Theatre performance of Race to the Finish Line, a two-person show that addresses the issues of race in America in a real-life, thought-provoking context. The short play focuses on two colleagues who find their friendship begin to fracture as they discuss the issue of race. 

Students followed that experience on Monday, October 31 by taking part in a Penumbra Theatre workshop on race held at The Inn at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. They participated in a series of provocative exercises, discussions, and journaling sessions that dealt with their own personal experiences with race and racism in the United States. 

Penumbra approaches issues of race and racism with the fundamental belief that we see difference. Their workshops combine expert facilitation, a powerful exploration of race in America, monologues from artists, and opportunities for participants to use theatre as a way to problem-solve and model. The process celebrates difference, recognizes cultural nuance, and invites everyone to participate in the dialogue.

Bats, Bones, and Bonfires
Several SSM students lent a helping holiday hand as volunteers at “Bats, Bones, and Bonfires” on Saturday, October 29 at the River Bend Nature Center. The Halloween-themed, all-ages event featured festive costumes, wagon rides, games, live music, food, crafts, a mystery animal trail, and free s’mores to roast on the bonfire in the amphitheater.

Congratulations to Mimi Chang ’19, Anh Ho ’19, Flame Ruethaimetapat ’17, Karen Son ’18, and Griffin Xu ’17, who had their artwork displayed during the 12th-annual SSM Art Invitational. SSM hosted an opening event on Thursday, October 27 that featured more than 40 pieces of original student work from Shattuck-St. Mary’s and several other area schools. The artwork will be on display in the Morgan Art Gallery (just outside of the Morgan Refectory) through the end of the fall term.
