    Enriching Life by Lifelong Learning in STEM

    Fall Semester 2021 of The Word Magazine | Madeline Zukowski, DSHA '11
    Dr. Mary Sanfelippo, HA ’62, while living and giving back to causes on the West Coast, has turned her attention back to DSHA. She is encouraged by the growth of STEM at DSHA, and the interest that Dashers have shown in the subjects, which are close to her heart as a medical doctor. Fueled by this interest, she and her husband recently gave a generous gift of $50,000 to DSHA in support of STEM education. Related to Sanfelippo’s passions of science and patient care, she believes DSHA has a unique capacity to form young women academically, spiritually, and socially to bring both expertise and compassion to those they meet—no matter what career path they take.

    Junior Activity & Interview Day Helps Students Plan for the Future

    Fall Semester 2021 of The Word Magazine | Madeline Zukowski, DSHA '11
    DSHA’s college-preparatory curriculum assists each student to think critically and communicate effectively while preparing for her college experience. When a student reaches junior year, her academic workload has progressed to challenge her beyond what she experienced freshman and sophomore year. Junior year also marks the second half of high school, which presents thoughts and decisions of what is next.

    To allow juniors the opportunity to jump start what is to come—the college search, college applications, as well as interviews for college, scholarships, jobs, and more, DSHA Student Services created the annual Junior Activity and Interview Day. The first of its kind took place 11 years ago, in November 2010. The day took place on November 5 this year.

    Junior Activity and Interview Day takes a wholistic approach, “helping students see who they are, what they want, and their goals,” said Director of Student Services Jacky Krawczyk. By junior year, students’ soft interpersonal skills, or how they communicate and interact with those around them, is developing according to School Counselor Mallorie Svetlik. The entire day, from taking a step back from the stress that comes with junior year to connect with one another, to putting each girl’s communication and confidence into practice, helps the development of the skills she will need in the future.

    “We are a college-prep school and we provide this unique experience that other schools may not provide,” said Krawczyk.

    All-Female Mathematics Department Shows Dashers Strength in the Field

    Fall Semester 2021 of The Word Magazine | by Molly Shea
    For nearly a decade, the DSHA Mathematics Department has been comprised of an all-female faculty. And thus, the young women of DSHA are shown that women can be — and they are — strong in the field of mathematics. This unique staffing structure offers girls the opportunity to learn in an environment where there is an absence of a reinforcement of gender stereotypes when it comes to professional success in mathematics. At DSHA, young women are celebrated for their achievements in mathematics, and portrayed as leaders when it comes to problem solving, working through the application of concepts, and critical thinking in the subject area.

    Student Advent Project Helps Launch New St. Bakhita Catholic Worker House

    Fall Semester 2021 of The Word Magazine | by Molly Shea
    During the liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent each year, DSHA students plan a school-wide project to support an organization of their choosing. The Advent project typically champions an organization local to Milwaukee, while the Lenten project often supports an international organization. This past Advent, the new St. Bakhita Catholic Worker House of Milwaukee was the project of choice for the nine seniors who serve in the student leadership role of Campus Ministry Officers.
