It is an exciting time for Havern School. We are taking steps to position ourselves for our next 50 years, and we want to be sure our alumni are part of our journey.
In the coming weeks and months, we hope to build Havern’s Alumni Network. Our alumni number over 1,500. Some of you receiving this might have been among some of our first graduates. Others could have been in Havern’s hallways and classrooms only last year. What unites you all is that you each are an important part of our story, and we want to hear your narrative of how you have learned to SOAR!
A Few Updates
In 2016, Havern School celebrated its 50th Anniversary. At this same time, through the generosity of our greater community, we were also able to purchase the building and grounds of the Loretto Center. Expanding from the original classroom’s tucked on the ground level, we now enjoy large, bright spaces and have the opportunity to serve more students. After 28 years of service to Havern School, Cathy Pasquariello retired as Head of School in June 2019. A beautiful sensory garden was installed to honor her legacy. Molly Buttitta, a valued member of our faculty for more than 10 years, now serves in this role.
In 2020 saw our share of ups and downs as we reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last spring our faculty quickly responded with a robust Home Learning program for our students for the final three months of the school year. This fall, we welcomed all students back to campus for in-person instruction and have been grateful to have had only three precautionary periods of Home Learning this school year.
We Need Your Help
We are reaching out to every alum and alumni family for whom we have a mailing address.
No matter if you are an alum or a parent/guardian of an alum, please complete this brief survey.
One of the first projects we will be undertaking
as part of establishing Havern’s Alumni Network
is an Impact Study. Your narrative is an important part of the Havern story.
Please expect additional outreach in the next several weeks from Lena Cazeaux and Kristine Wolf of the Development Collective.
