Party like it’s 2013-2014, the yearbooks have arrived! Ms. Yergens and the yearbook staff threw a yearbook release party with a cooking theme. The yearbook’s cover, designed by Cherry Wang ’15, took its design from the classic cookbook and tablecloth theme with a red and white plaid covering. The party was complete with video clips about food on the projector screen, songs about food, and plenty of cookies to eat while students signed each other’s yearbooks and looked at the photos. Any students interested in helping with this year’s yearbook can email Ms. Yergens. Check out some photos of the event on Flickr.

BioScience Students Head to the Great Outdoors

bioscience canoe.jpg

On Sep 6 – 7, the BioScience COE students traveled to Camp Omega in Waterville, MN for the 3rd Annual BioScience Retreat. It was a jam-packed 26 hours that included hiking, canoeing, rock-wall climbing and archery. There was also a bonfire and s’mores followed by the ever-anticipated “night hike” (along wooded trails, no flashlights allowed) led by Mr. Blackmer, our SSM Campus Naturalist. The main event of the weekend was the annual “Spoons” Championship where Kevin Du (’16) came out on top after a hard-fought battle! Once again, the BioScience retreat provided lots of fun and friendship, but did not provide much sleep (oh, those late night card games!!) Take a look at some photos from the trip and be sure to like the BioScience CoE on Facebook!

ESL III Explores Literature

chicken on a book.jpg

ESL III took a field trip this week to the Kerlan Collection at the University of Minnesota and Wild Rumpus books in Linden Hills. At the Kerlan, they had the opportunity to see original notes, first drafts, and manuscripts—with editors notes!—of award-winning, published books like The Giver, by Lois Lowry; A Single Shard, by Linda Sue Park; what they found: love on 145th street, by Walter Dean Myers; and Because of Winn-Dixie, by Kate DiCamillo. 

They also noticed how many people were actually involved in the creation of a published book. The author tells the orignal story, but many people give the author feedback before it is published.

After a quick lunch at Little Szechuan near the University, they proceeded to Wild Rumpus Books in Linden Hills where they got to see all of the books they saw at the Kerlan in published form! They spent the afternoon reading books, petting the Manx cats and hanging out with the chickens (see photo above).

On Monday, August 18, the SSM’s faculty and staff gathered to kick off the School’s 157th year. Just as student orientation activities are designed to mix and mingle new and returning students, the faculty and staff played games and had some fun with water balloons on the parade field. From there, more serious planning and prepping took place as the SSM adult community prepared to make it a great year. Check out our photo album and video!

Welcome and Welcome Back!

With great enthusiasm, new and returning students, parents, siblings, and various other family and friends were welcomed to campus on August 25, 26, and 27. Even though the SSM campus is humming with camps and activity all summer, there’s nothing quite like having SSM students back on campus to start another school year. Check out our photo album!

A Human Touch
ww6.jpg

A new Shattuck-St. Mary’s tradition was born on August 27, 2014 — the Human Arch. This informal ceremony — which will hopefully live on for hundreds of years — is designed to symbolically welcome new faculty, staff, and students through the Whitney Memorial Arch and on through a human arch of returning faculty, staff, and students. As they exit the human arch, they pair up and create the next arch and so it goes until all the returning people have woven their way through the ever-extending human arch tunnel. By the end, the human arch extended well into the Parade Field connecting everyone together as one new community. Simply put, it was AWESOME. Check out our video and photo album!

Orientation 2014

ww3.jpg

After Opening Chapel Service on August 28, Orientation 2014 officially began. The Middle School had a great overnight experience at Singing Hills, despite the rainy weather. Students mixed it up playing games, kayaking, and getting to know their Marzetti Family teams for the year. Marzetti teams were named this year with inspiration from hairstyles and cartoon characters! (Middle School photoscourtesy Ms. Trout) The 10th grade students spent Thursday on campus, completing various activities designed to familiarize the students with the campus as well as their advisory groups. On Friday, they went to Feed My Starving Children to pack meals (over 200) that will be shipped around the world to those in need. They also included a visit to the Como Zoo. On Saturday, the 10th grade group went to Taylor’s Falls to explore glacial pot holes and other geological features of the area and enjoyed a boat ride on the St. Croix River. (10th grade photos courtesy Mr. Bailey and Mr. Peck) The 11th grade students spent two nights at Good Earth Village where they participated in a variety of team-building and advisory activities. Along with the other Upper School students, they discussed the WaWa Island case study on who to select for the establishment of a new society on the remote island. (11th grade photos courtesy Mr. Schaefer and Mr. Cornish). The 12th graders and post graduates spent one night at Camp Omega. A highlight was the Dance Crew Competition between the 15 advisory groups. The weather improved and they were able to enjoy archery, the climbing wall, the swimming pool, and other outdoor activities. (12 grade photos courtesy Ms. Wolf).

Team USA Hockey 
wu18_-_game_3_-_can_vs_usa__4__medium.jpg 

Current SSM hockey players and alumnae suited up for the red, white, and blue this summer for the Women’s U-18 and U-22 Series in Calgary, Alberta. Representing the U-22 U.S. squad were Dana Trivigno ‘12, Lexi Bender ‘12, and Alyssa Gagliardi ’10. The U-18 team included Alexis Mauerman ’16, Alex Woken ’16, Dominique Kremer ’15, Melissa Samoskevich ’15, and Patricia Marshall ’16.

“It’s amazing having people you know, go to school with, and live with every day on the team,” Alexis Mauerman told USA Hockey. “We have five girls here from Shattuck-St. Mary’s. Having your friends here and people you live with is awesome.” Alexis put her SSM connection to good use as she found fellow Sabre Alex Woken for a goal during the third game of the series.


The two teams played a three game series against Team Canada with the U-22 team winning all three of the games while the U-18 squad lost the first two but managed a 4-1 victory in the final game. Sabres combined for four goals and five assists throughout the six games.
