I lost my head—of hair—on purpose!

Mother-Daughter Fashion Show By: Alexandra Guntle ’11 The annual Mother-Daughter Fashion Show, which took place on April 26 at Columbia Country Club, combined fun, food and fashion. Mothers and daughters loved the

I first heard of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation in 2005 at Ri Ra, my favorite Irish establishment in Bethesda. Our waiter explained that they were about to have a “shaving event” to support the Foundation. St. Baldrick’s is the largest volunteer-driven organization in the world whose mission is “to raise awareness and funds to cure kids’ cancer by supporting cancer research and fellowships.” Participants volunteer to shave their heads in solidarity with children stricken with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family. It sounded to me like a cool way to support cancer sufferers and to have some fun too. But my wife said she liked me better with hair, I didn’t know any children who had cancer, and I had a baseball game on the same day. The motivation just wasn’t there. So the event came and went without me. I barely gave it any thought. Then in September, 2007, I came to Holy Child as a part-time math teacher. And I heard of a young lady, a freshman and an athlete, who had developed bone cancer the previous year. Since I was only there about 2 hours a day, and because the young lady was receiving intense care for her cancer and missed a lot of school, we never got to meet. Still, I heard a lot

about her bravery, her resilience, her attitude. I was curious how a young person could face such hardship and still maintain the positive outlook I understood she had. In 2008 I became a full-time math teacher, and on the first day of school I finally got to meet Emma. Sitting on the gym floor with a kerchief on her head, a medical boot on her left leg, and a pair of crutches lying beside her, Emma also wore the most radiant smile of anyone there. I introduced myself, helped her off the gym floor, and the rest is history. From that moment on, my participation in the first St. Baldrick’s event I could find became a forgone conclusion. That event occurred on May 16, 2009, and through the incredible generosity of the Holy Child family and my immediate family and friends, I was able to raise over $2300 for the Foundation. The event was attended by a number of faculty and an even greater number of students. After the deed was done, one of the students asked me, “So, do you think you’ll ever do that again?” The only way I could think to respond was to say that next year the shaving will take a little longer, because they’ll have to change the “11A” that was first carved into my hair to “12A”, since my homeroom will be Seniors.

chance to bond with one another and get ideas for new outfits. Along with the fashion show, attendees participated in a raffle and enjoyed a delicious brunch. Upper School students modeled fashions from South Moon Under, while Middle School students dressed up in Lilly Pulitzer outfits and the moms strutted their stuff in Smith’s of Bermuda attire. Lancôme from Sak’s provided make-up. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make it yet another successful fashion show!

A Farewell to Ms. Carlson by Pam Tobey

Spirit Week, one of Holy Child’s most cherished traditions, took place during the week of February 17. Themes included Roll Out of Bed Day, Fairytale Day, Group Day and Color Day. The week incorporated activities each day for classes to win points and culminated with the ever-popular Spirit Games. Congratulations to the Class of 2009 for winning Spirit Games and Spirit Week!

SPIRITWEEK09

As many of you may know, Valerie will be moving to Troy, New York to teach at Emma Willard, an all-girls’ boarding school. As a member of the Holy Child community, I wish to thank Val for everything she has given us. Every year her energy and creativity have offered us unbelievable theatrical performances. Who would think to put The Mikado in Scotland or have not just one but three Alices jumping through the Looking Glass? What a remarkable image of Erin Callahan sweeping through the gym as the Wicked Witch of the West or Kristina Slekys popping up as the Cat in the Hat. Ms. Carlson has taught the girls and the entire community to love theater. When Valerie arrived, the drama club was a club like so many of our clubs, more interest than action. Now it is a dominant presence: presenting three shows a year, competing in the Folger Shakespeare Festival and returning to school consistently with recognition of excellence in acting. The collaboration every spring allows the music and theater departments to work together. Every year is more remarkable. Who else could get the creative writing classes to come up with 42 plays in 34 minutes! Val, Cornelia Connelly would be as proud of you as we are. You have truly helped to build a strong fine arts hub at Holy Child.

As a member of one of the two departments in which you work, I want to say thank you for the joy and playfulness you have brought to each of us. We will miss the bubbles at graduations and the bouncing

balls during parent-teacher conferences in the gym. We will miss the figs and the boots and the Wicker and Weidenfeld dolls. We will miss the gowns, the shoes, swords, wigs and all that gather around your desk the month before the annual play. We will miss the many surprises-the a cappella group that arrived to sing us Happy Valentines’ Day, the red devil picture frame that pops up periodically in the office. Some of us, and I do include myself, have been known to see the glass half empty. You never see the glass half full; it is always overflowing. Anyone who has ever sat in a brainstorming session with Val knows about what I speak. She just steps outside the box and generates more ideas in thirty seconds than I could come up with in a week; you inspire everyone in the department. Your upbeat optimism and creativity will be sorely missed. And finally and most importantly we all wish to thank you for giving the girls the gift of themselves. You have seen hidden talents in so many girls and insisted that they share these gifts to help others. The entitled have been humbled; the humble have became confident. You have given girls a sense of self that no other teacher in this school could do. And yet never in the last ten years do I ever recall seeing you standing in the spotlight. The girls have always been front and foremost. Valerie, your whimsical playfulness, undying and fearless energy and enthusiasm, and mischievous sense of humor -added to your dedication to teaching -we will always celebrate. We are going to miss you.

Miss Ruth is on Island Time by Ellen Kumm

Miss Ruth called Holy Child today, which isn’t unusual. She would always call to check in with us. Only this time, she was calling from her home country of Barbados. Ruth Huque—or “Miss Ruth” as the students, faculty and staff fondly called her—is tremendously missed. She came to the United States to visit her daughters and friends. That was three years ago! Miss Ruth truly embraced Holy Child Spirit. Whether it was wearing her jeans on tag days, donning her Gold Team shirt or dressing up like Cher of Sonny and Cher or Jake from The Blues Brothers during Spirit Week, she was ready to jump right in and embrace School events. Whenever a student would come to the front desk for help, Miss Ruth’s answer was always the same, “Certainly . . . . Come . . . . It’s no problem.” We will miss her kind heart, gentle ways and her always-warm, welcoming smile.

The 2009 spring production of Alice/Through the Looking Glass transported Holy Child into a wonderland full of mysterious characters. Ms. Valerie Bijur Carlson compiled the musical, which was based on the novels Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. In addition, Mr. David Z. Peters composed the original music score that took the audience by the hand and led it through the play. Alice, played collectively by Madlyn McAuliffe ’10, Maria Leyva ’11, and Katie Pritchard ’12, ran after the legendarily anxious White Rabbit (played by Kat Eisenberg ’09) through the night, alternatively growing as tall as a skyscraper and shrinking to the diminutive size of the meditative Caterpillar ( Julia Timm ’09). Alice not only changes physically, but she also evolves from being the only “odd” one in Wonderland, to the status of a persecuted child, to a ruling Queen. The audience enjoyed recognizable characters such as Humpty Dumpty, the smiling Cheshire Cat, crazy twins and a Mad Hatter. Alice/Through the Looking Glass was a performance designed to delight.

Bokomoso Youth Group Visits the Middle School By Ann Whiteley

It’s always a challenge to explain the meaning of the Holy Spirit to Middle School students, but we think we’ve found at least one proven method. For the last five years we have welcomed a group of young singers, dancers and actors from South Africa into our midst, and from the time they sing their first notes, we are transported into harmonies unlike anything we know. The performers’ sense of joy is like none other, and we are forever changed. The performers, who live in the Winterveldt community near Pretoria, share not only their music with us but also the stories of their struggles in post- apartheid South Africa and their dreams for their future. They are inspired by their audience’s appreciation, returning to South Africa with a renewed sense of self -worth. We at Holy Child are grateful for a glimpse into their world.

Trip to Echo Hill

As part of eighth grade’s unit on environmental studies, the entire class went and stayed in cabins on the Chesapeake Bay. Lessons included water studies, survival and orienteering, and the girls went canoeing and on a night hike. The highlight of the week was the bonfire on the final evening.

Mother’s Day Luncheon

Members were inducted into Circulo Solidario, the Middle School Spanish Honor Society, as well as students from Connelly Cantanti into the Royal School of Music. Connelly Cantanti and the Middle School band performed, and girls and their mothers enjoyed a variety of salads for lunch.

Middle School Music Circus: 2009 Edition By Ann Whiteley

The second annual Middle School Music Circus 2009 Edition in March closed with rave reviews from the audience. After a grand opening song, Good Morning Holy Child, with words re-written by our students from the musical Hairspray, the 6th grade entertained in rhyme with their version of Perseus searching for the Gorgon Sisters and capturing the prized head of Medusa. This was all the more hilarious with Mrs. Hopkins playing the role of Medusa. There’s nothing like beheading the head of the school! Enter the 7th grade, rocking us with the reasons for the American Revolution. It sounds like a sober topic but not with this script. Urchins rhymed about the lobsterbacks, rappers chanted the story of Paul Revere and Mrs. Appel even made a cameo appearance as the very confused lantern holder from Old North Church. The 8th grade was in the third ring with Scarlett O’Hara looking into her crystal ball of the 1860s to see what would happen in the 1960s. She and her friends were horrified to find groups styling and profiling with the twist dance craze, hysterical girls screaming about the Beatles, bedazzled Supremes wannabees with their Motown routine and war protestors disclaiming Vietnam. The show ended with all the students and 15 faculty members coming together to sing Abba’s Dancing Queen. It was definitely a fasten-your-seat belt kind of evening to treasure. 14

Scarlett O’Hara and friends are aghast at the 1960s.

Jessie Frech Finds Herself at Home Out of Her League Holy Child senior Jessie Frech has achieved a lot this summer. Since the first grade, Frech has played soccer, and she had the chance this summer to try out with the Northern Virginia Majestics. Frech was the youngest player on the field. “When I came to tryouts I had no idea what I was getting myself into,” she said. I never expected to make the team and now that I’m on it, playing with these girls has shown me what college is going to be like. These players are a lot more physical than in high school or club. It’s showed me that I have to play hard all the time.”

Playing at Holy Child and playing with teams on the club circuit have helped Frech earn a Division I scholarship to the University of Connecticut. However, even she was surprised to earn a place on a W-League team. “It’s definitely been a great opportunity,” Frech acknowledges. “I was expecting to make the [Majestics] U20 team. I didn’t know I was going to be good enough to play for the WLeague team.” Frech recently helped the U17 club team, the McLean Dragons, win a state title and earn a berth in this past July’s U.S. Youth Soccer Region I Championships. With height to be a threat on corner kicks and enough finesse to go one on one in front of the net, Frech is equipped for success. “She’s composed and she offers us some versatility between playing a flank [midfield] and playing a striker so we’re just getting her used to the environment,” Majestics coach Jac Cicala said. “Her technical level is pretty high and she doesn’t panic in crisis situations. To find somebody at 16 with that type of composure is rare.” Before making a verbal commitment to UConn, she played basketball, lacrosse and swimming. As soccer became a priority for Frech, her interest in these sports gradually faded.

Horses, Hounds, Hats and Holy Child! On a crisp Sunday in May, a bright blue tent with yellow paw prints and “Holy Child” was the most visible landmark in northern Montgomery County. Holy Child’s Equestrian Team sponsored a tailgate at the Potomac Hunt Races. Those in attendance sported a variety of hats celebrating the country theme of the Hunt. The elegant tailgate was complete with an oriental carpet, beautiful flowers, tablecloths and abundant, hearty foods. The location was on a rise near the finish line, allowing Holy Child families, alumnae and potential students the enjoyment of the exciting finishes of the steeplechase races before them. The Holy Child tent received many visitors—both human and equine—underscoring the tradition of Holy Child equestrian programs which have existed since the School’s early years.

PRESIDENT’SLETTER Dear Alumnae: The Holy Child Alumnae Association is a great way for you to stay in touch with friends and classmates, meet and network with fellow graduates, and hear about the latest happenings at our alma mater. Getting involved is easy. First and foremost make sure to update your contact information so that you will receive updates and event information throughout the year. We now also have a group page for all alumnae classes on Facebook called “Connelly School of the Holy Child – Potomac, MD” that you are encouraged to join. Also, make sure to share your news and ideas with your class representatives, and attend the various reunions they help organize at Holy Child, local restaurants and friends’ homes. There are so many events to choose from throughout the year, there is sure to be an event for everyone. You can choose from the 5K Tiger Trot and Alumnae/ Varsity basketball game to shopping at Mayfield Market and catching up with old friends at the annual Alumnae Champagne Brunch. You can always find a schedule of events on the Holy Child website, and don’t forget to bring a friend when you attend! If you can’t find the right event for you, please suggest your own idea. Some of the best ideas have come from the alumnae themselves. Holy Child Alumnae share a special bond which is the Holy Child tradition. This tradition has taught us leadership and loyalty, but most of all love and respect for one another and for God.

URBAN COMPASS

Theresa Gartland ‘99 Helps Inner City Youth Chart Their Course

After graduating from Villanova in 2003, I moved to Los Angeles to participate in Response-Ability volunteer teaching program, which is a ministry of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus. Living in the heart of South Central was definitely an experience and not something girls from Potomac are used to. After completing the program, earning my Master’s in Elementary Education, and teaching for three years, I moved on to an administrative position at an all-boys Jesuit high school in Watts, Verbum Dei High School. In July of 2008, I accepted the position as Program and Curriculum Director of Urban Compass. Urban Compass is a nonprofit in Watts, housed on Verbum Dei’s campus, that works with elementary school children from Nickerson Gardens Housing Projects to keep them engaged in school and out of gangs.

Theresa at work.

I am very grateful to be working for such an amazing organization and with such amazing kids. I feel as though Holy Child helped shape me into the person I am today. While at Holy Child I realized my talents, passion, and potential in helping others. I have been able to connect with the Holy Child schools in Pasadena, Mayfield Junior and Mayfield Senior. Both schools have been very welcoming and generous to Urban Compass. More information about Theresa’s work may be found at

Alumnae caught up with one another and made new acquaintances. In addition, many mothers of alums attended. We hope to increase numbers for next year, so mark your calendars for February 6, 2010.

ANNUAL REPORT 30


Dear Friends,

Dear Holy Child Community,

As I reflect on this past year, I am struck by the numerous blessings that have been bestowed upon us and our school. It is with tremendous gratitude that I share this annual report with you—the heart of so many blessings.

With the publication of this year’s Annual Report, I wish to recognize and thank you. Because of your generosity, Holy Child is able to educate young women of faith and action.

Holy Child is a very special school. With exceptional teachers, outstanding academic programs, a commitment to providing financial aid to deserving young women and its foundation of faith, values and Cornelia Connelly’s “actions, not words,” Holy Child stands out in a region known for excellent schools. Your gifts to the Annual Fund—no matter how large or small— help ensure that Holy Child will not only endure but flourish and grow. During this time of financial uncertainty, there is no better investment to make than in the priceless stock of a Holy Child education. Above all else, I consider myself to be most fortunate to serve Holy Child as Headmistress. During my sixteen years here, the School and its community have become a second family to me. It is in this spirit that I thank you with all my heart for your generosity and support as we look together toward 2010 with optimism and good will.

This year, contributions to Holy Child from all sources totaled $1,519,512. The Fund for Holy Child amounted to $396,781 of the total. Despite the uncertain global climate, you have risen to our call. We are very grateful for the efforts of The Fund for Holy Child Cabinet, whose dedication of time and talent helped to make this possible: Dr. and Mrs. Robert Heinssen, Jr.; Mr. and Mrs. Steven W. Baldwin; Mr. and Mrs. Richard A. Van Bruygom; Mr. and Mrs. Alfonso V. de Lucio; Mr. and Mrs. Richard E. Gardella, Jr.; Mr. and Mrs. Joseph C. Kale, Jr.; Mrs. Sharon Kenny; Mr. and Mrs. Paul B. Kern, III; Mr. and Mrs. Jon Korol; Mrs. Mary Kosch; Mrs. Ellen Kumm; Mr. and Mrs. Michael MacCormack; Mr. and Mrs. Robert MacDaniels; Mr. and Mrs. Timothy A. Marvin; Mr. and Mrs. Peter H. Plamondon, Jr.; Mr. and Mrs. Gregory B. Popera; Mr. Nelson E. Shawn; Mr. and Mrs. Javed A. Tareen; and Mrs. Ann Whiteley. Finally, on a personal note, I would like to thank you for two exceptional years as Chair of Holy Child’s Board. It has been a rewarding experience for me and I hope that I have been able to make the School brighter and stronger. Sincerely,

God Bless,

David Straus Maureen K. Appel Headmistress

East of the Sun, West of the Moon was the song title that was the inspiration for the 2009 Annual Gala. Returning to Congressional Country Club for the first time in many years, the Asian-inspired Gala proved to be a wellattended and successful fundraiser. Highlights of the evening included the Manadarin Lounge, where sports buffs could watch the basketball playoffs on a big screen TV, a magnificent tablescape raffle and the featured silent and live auctions. Providing much needed scholarship money for students in need, the Fund-A-Need portion of the Live Auction was the biggest success of the evening. March 20, 2010 is the date for next year’s Gala, also being held at Congessional Country Club. A 70’s themed event is in the works—mark your calendars and get ready to rock!
