Wednesday, August 15 marked the first day of school at the new Mercy McAuley High School! Our teachers and staff greeted our Wolves the minute they entered the driveway! We commemorated the opening of the school with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by our opening All-School Mass celebrating the Feast of the Assumption. Then, our students spent some time with their new classmates in their grade level before heading off to class. The energy and enthusiasm in the building was incredible!
Hundreds of alumnae from both McAuley and Mother of Mercy High Schools, along with many friends of the new Mercy McAuley, attended our Alumnae & Friends Welcome Night on August 15. Guests toured the building and saw the renovations inside and out. Thanks to all who attended; it was a perfect end to our first day of school at Mercy McAuley!
