HEAD OF SCHOOL, 2007—2011 In recognition of her service to St. Catherine’s, our new independent research lab in the Upper School science facility will be named for departing Head of School Laura Fuller. Laura championed St. Catherine’s effort to position itself as a leader in science education and introduced several curricular changes, such as the STEM (Science Technology Engineering
and Mathmatics) program and Physics First. A plaque, bearing Laura’s name, will hang in the new space when it opens in the fall of 2012. “This space is the culmination of a dream I have had for years to provide high school age students with the important research skills they will need to enter successfully the study of collegiate science,” Laura said.

Pursuing academic excellence â€˘ Developing character Nurturing spiritual growth Celebrating individuals â€˘ Building community
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. â€”Ralph Waldo Emerson
THANK YOU to all of the devoted teachers, coaches, spiritual leaders, parents, grandparents, alumnae, friends, school staff, board members and countless volunteers whose contributions big and small made this an outstanding year at St. Catherineâ€™s School.
