On Sunday, August 18, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy (FSHA) welcomed the Class of 2017 at the New Family Social. The theme was “Tolog Tropical Oasis,” which transformed the Student Activities Center into an island paradise with palm-frond centerpieces, scattered seashells and yards of blue tulle. While parents mingled, the new students cheerfully greeted one another—many of whom were middle-school friends reuniting after a long summer. Joining the day students were FSHA’s new boarding students, who had moved in earlier that day.

After a program that featured remarks from President Sister Carolyn McCormack, O.P., Principal Sister Celeste Marie Botello, O.P., senior administrators, and parent volunteers, along with 9th-grade teacher introductions, families were treated to a buffet of burgers, pulled pork, cole slaw and potato salad. And once dinner finished, the new Tologs scooped up bags of candy and cookies from a dessert bar, then posed for pictures with playful ocean props. Excitement lingered long into the night, and these Tologs left ready to start the new school year.
