On the @SACRED HEART blog, you'll hear perspectives from the students, faculty, staff, and coaches that make the Sacred Heart Greenwich experience unique. Each April, Sacred Heart Greenwich juniors receive their school rings ,as do juniors at all of the other Sacred Heart network schools. On the face of the ring are the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and the jewelry represents what it means to be a leader in your school community and a child of the Sacred Heart. During the Ring Day Mass and reception, seniors place the rings on the juniors' fingers to signify the transfer of leadership at the School to a new class. This year, senior Christina DeConcini and junior Ludnie Rene shared reflections with everyone in attendance on the tradition of Ring Day and what Sacred Heart Greenwich means to them. What follows are excerpts from those reflections.
