As the old archway and brick work become re-exposed in the demolition phase of our Erbin Hall renovation project, the classic architecture of this historic building is beginning to show some of the re-found character that will accompany the new learning spaces for our students next year and for decades to come.
MJSA and Okland Construction have been hard at work with Mr. Glenn and Principal Baillie over the past few months with an eye on every detail necessary to complete the project for the future safety of our students, faculty and volunteers.
Each year The Madeleine Choir School honors Jane F. McCarthey, one of the school's major benefactors, by celebrating 'Crazy Hat Day' in her memory. Mrs. McCarthey was a great fan of fancy and elaborate hats. October 3 marks the anniversary of her death and all MCS students attend a requiem Mass for Mrs. McCarthey -- with hats removed, of course. Pictured here are a few of our students today in their 'crazy' hats in recognition of all that Mrs. McCarthey and the McCarthey Family Foundation have done for the Choir School.
