Beyond the Circle with Days of Service|
Groton students participated in two Community Days of Service in recent weeks, visiting nearby locations to garden, perform, teach, play, and otherwise take a helpful step outside the Groton Circle.
Alumni Games Move to St. Mark's Day
Return to Groton November 14 for Alumni Games!
We've scheduled Alumni Games for St. Mark's Day, so you can play hockey, soccer, or squash with your fellow alumni, then cheer on our teams against St. Mark's. Double the nostalgia! Join faculty and former faculty for lunch at noon, and there's time for a tour of the new Schoolhouse too. |
Check out the schedule of events or the Alumni Games Facebook page. All games are coed.
Eden Self Albanese '00 explains why she returns repeatedly for Alumni Games. "Coming back to Groton each year for Alumni Games is a way to relive the glory days on the ice, but also a way to reconnect with fellow athletes and beloved faculty," she says. Grabbing a jersey from Jim brings the same excitement for game day as it did when I was a student. I'm a little slower on the skates these days, but just as excited to suit up and take the ice."
Please let us know if you plan to attend. RSVP here.
