Today is a day that will be marked forever in St. Scholastica’s history.
It is a day of new beginnings and a day to remember those who trace back one hundred years. At St. Scholastica we are not just here to get an education, we are here to be a part of the tradition. We all wear that tradition every time we put on our uniforms, every time we step onto campus, and every time we share in the sisterhood of our school.  As we break ground today, we begin to build another part of that tradition. We begin to form a pathway in the future of our school. We will all look back years from now, and tell our children that we were part of that groundbreaking. We will tell them how we walked through
the entrance as a graduating class and how it made a difference in our school’s appearance. As we approach our centennial celebration let us all look towards the future of our school with excitement. Let us all leave our legacies as the classes of today, for the ones of tomorrow. Let us give back everything SSA has given to us, by showing support for the centennial fund.  A wise man once said “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Let us all take the history that lies behind us, and the developments that lie before us so that we may all make this centennial year part of the spirit that will forever lie within us.

Thank you.
