Locals Attend Ring Night At St. Saviour

Ring Night at St. Saviour High School was established in 1917 by the School Sisters of Notre Dame. Well known for its quality education, St. Saviour was selected as one of the top 96 high schools in America.

This was based on a research program that was conducted by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago.

Margaret Bernstein, assistant principal, told of the symbolism of our ring that was designed in 1925 by a group of students.

The school seal, set in a maroon sardonyx stone, consists of the cross, the crown, and the olive branch representing faith, victory, and peace.

A special “Thanks” to Eileen Byrnes, Mary Anne McElroy, and Maria Wenglinsky, junior homeroom teachers.
