Santa Catalina School held its Report Card Assembly on January 13, recognizing students for both their academic achievements and their outstanding courtesy toward others.

Head of Upper School Julie Lenherr Edson '88 read off the names of students who made honor roll and those who earned traditional Gold Cords at the end of last semester. Gold Cord recipients finished with a GPA that put them in the top 15 percent of their class; eight freshmen, seven sophomores, eight juniors, and nine seniors received the honor.

Next, Mrs. Edson recognized recipients of the Courtesy Award, which is given to day and boarding students from each class based on nominations from faculty and their peers. The award honors those who exemplify courtesy in the broadest sense—thoughtful and kind, generous with their time, and caring toward the feelings and welfare of others.

Recipients were:

  • Freshmen: Maggie and Norah (Boarding); Cora, Emma, and Ceci (Day)
  • Sophomores: Sara and CC (Boarding); Anna and Tarn (Day)
  • Juniors: Milan and Kiska (Boarding); Audrey and Cailin (Day)
  • Seniors: Ayo, Gracie, and Jane (Boarding); MK and Clare (Day)

Mrs. Edson congratulated all students for their diligence during distance learning, for their personal resilience, and for their consistent commitment toward the Catalina community.

Head of School Meg Bradley said, "Developing resilient and confident young women is a hallmark of Santa Catalina, and what you have been able to accomplish during a pandemic is simply to be celebrated. You have dug deep, worked hard, and you have developed new academic prowess in what you've been doing, using all of your talents—and most likely developing many new talents in this world we live in right now. ... We are so very proud of you."
