Villa Maria students returned to campus on Wednesday, September 2 for the official start of the 2015-16 school year. Most of the first two days were devoted to back to school business like locker assignments, ID photos, and getting the hang of the new block schedule. Thursday opened with an all-school Mass led by the Student Integrity Committee, followed by an assembly on safety procedures and a practice evacuation drill.
The day closed with a cookout picnic in the Italian Gardens, where the girls had a chance to catch up with friends on summer activities and plans for the new year. Senior big sisters/freshman little sister pairs also enjoyed a fun scavenger hunt designed to help the freshmen learn about the school.
