Sr. Gwynette Proctor, SNDdeN kicks off Catholic Schools Week
Maryvale welcomed Sr. Gwynette Proctor, SNDdeN, director of the Black Catholic Ministries for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, today for a special gathering to kick off Catholic Schools Week. In keeping with Monday’s theme of celebrating our community, Sr. Gwynette spoke about how each person connected with Maryvale can be a part of any positive solution for change.
“Don’t focus on the outside packaging,” Sr. Gwynette advised. “Celebrate and appreciate our differences as opportunities for learning and growing.”
Following Sr. Gwynette’s presentation, 12 Maryvale students addressed the school community and offered examples of how they plan to spearhead change in an effort to create a more compassionate, productive and respectful environment in our global society.

Maryvale Middle Schoolers thrive in JHU engineering challenge
In honor of National Engineers Week, Maryvale’s Middle Schoolers put on their engineering hats and eagerly participated in Johns Hopkins University’s “A Tower of Power in a Half Hour” challenge. The Middle Schoolers were divided into teams of no more than three students, and within their groups, the girls were tasked with building the tallest freestanding tower made entirely out of uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows. The teams were given only one box of spaghetti and two bags of marshmallows to use, and they also had only thirty minutes to complete the challenge.
Members of the first place team will have their names submitted to Johns Hopkins University for the opportunity to participate in the Champions Tower of Power competition on the university’s campus and recreate their tower in competition with undergraduate students, alumni and faculty teams.
First Place: Naomi Lauderbaugh ’21, Lauren Ronald ’21 and Tristen O’Brien ’23 (129.54 cm)
Second Place: Peyton Bowes ’22, Anna Welsh ’21 and Caroline Welzant ’23 (125 cm)
Third Place: Hannah Mayne ’23 and Victoria Miller ’21 (120 cm)
