Dear Sheridan Road Alumnae/i,
Throughout the school year and summer, alumnae/i come back to visit Sheridan Road to see their old classrooms, the cafeteria and playgrounds, and talk to faculty and staff. They share memories of 8th grade pranks, Congé, and favorite teachers. Overwhelmingly, these alums also express that they had - and continue to have - a strong feeling of being welcomed as part of a community.
On Sheridan Road, we realize that the alumni network is founded on, and continues to grow organically from, the special relationships that our alumnae/i share with the school and with each other. The relationships between alumni remain strong no matter how many years separate them from their last day of school together. That is why every person who attended Sacred Heart Schools on Sheridan Road - regardless of graduation status - is considered a member of the Sheridan Road Alumni Association (SRAA). You are always welcome back to Sheridan Road, no matter how much time has passed.
Please note that membership is also open to anyone living in the Chicagoland area who attended any of the schools in the Sacred Heart Network.
The SRAA wants to remind all alumnae/i that Sheridan Road was a special place, and we need your help to maintain our strong alumni base. The goals of the SRAA are to strengthen ties between graduates and/or former students of the Academy for Girls, Hardey Preparatory for Boys, and the Academy of the Sacred Heart/Convent of the Sacred Heart High School; strengthen ties between Alumni and current Sacred Heart students and families; and to foster activities, programs, and services by Sacred Heart alumni to advance and promote the Goals and Criteria for Sacred Heart Schools.
As a member of SRAA, we ask that you keep in touch - whether its by attending meetings, updating your contact information, or attending Alumni Weekend. There are many diverse ways to re-connect with Sheridan Road, and we would love to find out what ideas you have as well!
We look forward to catching up soon.
Assistant Development Director, Alumni Relations

October 26: Working Bikes Drive
For the second year in a row, the SRAA is hosting a bike drive. On or before October 26, please bring your bikes, bike accessories, parts, etc. to Sheridan Road for a great cause!
The SRAA is once again partnering with Working Bikes, a nonprofit organization that gives used bikes to those in need. Every year, Working Bikes ships over 6,000 bikes to Africa and Central America, and fixes over 1,000 bicycles for individuals and organizations in Chicago.
Last year, Sheridan Road alumni, parents of alumni, current families, and faculty/staff collected nearly 75 bicycles and countless parts and accessories. We hope to exceed that number this year!
If you would like to bring in donations before October 26, please coordinate dropoffs with Ann Chiumino (firstname.lastname@example.org).
