Tuesday, April 4, 2017 7:00 p.m.: The Center for the Advancement of Girls presents Dr. Ainissa Ramirez
Why the World Needs Girls In STEM
In an age of fake news and alternative facts, the world needs citizens that can think critically and expansively. One of the pathways to build those traits is with the learning of STEM. Dr. Ainissa Ramirez will highlight skills needed by 21st century learners (of curiosity, creativity, and imagination) and will also share the hidden history of important women scientists and engineers that most people don’t know.
To RSVP, please contact: Caroline Slingluff, Assistant Director of Admission, at firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of seats you would like to reserve.

Ninth Grade Summer Bridge Program
Join students from Agnes Irwin and our brother school, The Haverford School, as we come together to make friends and prepare for the exciting transition to high school! The Bridge program provides a relaxed atmosphere for all members of the class of 2021, and introduces students to one another and to Upper School life through a variety of fun-filled activities, a service trip and surprise field trip. There are neither tests nor homework.
This year's Bridge program will run from Monday, July 10 through Friday, July 14, 2017. A letter with more program details will be mailed to all enrolled ninth grade girls later this spring.
