Villa Maria was happy to welcome its sesquicentennial class on Monday, August 27. Members of what will be Villa’s 150th graduating class were greeted by upperclassmen holding signs, cheering, and saying hello. The new students gathered in the Marian Center for an opening prayer service. Each student received a lapel pin marking their status as members of Villa Maria’s 150th class. Afterwards, the girls went to their homerooms, where they met their homerooms teachers and received locker information. The girls then fanned out in small groups for tours of the campus.
The girls met up again in the cafeteria to learn about their schedules, eat lunch, and complete a service project decorating Wawa coffee holders with cheerful messages. Day one closed with ice cream on the convent lawn.
