|Laying the Cornerstone for the 50th Anniversary
Please consider giving your Annual Appeal donation before the December 31 tax-deduction deadline.
Bishop Ireton's cornerstone was laid in 1963 and it's doors opened in 1964. Each of you has been a part of our great tradition through your dedication and sacrifice. You are the foundation to a project that remains unfinished.
As in the past, your Annual Appeal helps BI underwrite costs associated with tuition and operations. This year the Annual Appeal will: fund well deserving students, upgrade science labs, expand professional development, improve lighting and security, upgrade the landscaping and parking lots, and returf Fannon Field.
We look forward to having you back on campus! It is great to be a Cardinal!
Please consider giving to the 2013-2014 Annual Appeal. Click here.
Ireton Business Network
Thanks to the generous donation of time and resources over the past year from Mike Carson '00, with added support from Ray Curry '08, the Ireton Business Network (IBN) has been re-imaged and re-developed into a fully functional business directory serving both Bishop Ireton and St. Mary's Academy Alumni, and the greater Ireton community.
To see the improved site, visit our website.
The new "business directory" on the website will connect our Alumni to shared business opportunities like never before on a daily and weekly basis.
Membership to the Ireton Business Network is free and open to all of our Bishop Ireton and St. Mary's Academy Alums. We encourage all alumni to sign up today.
There will be an official re-launch party for the new Ireton Business Network on Wed., January 22,2014, from 6 to 8 pm at the Carlyle Club located at 411 John Carlyle Street in Alexandria, so mark your schedules now.

Alumnus of the Month
Kristen Anderson '07
I became involved in the class agent program last year in hopes of bringing the class of '07 closer together. Through dedication and persistence, I have been able to grow the classes' participation in alumnae social and networking events and now have secured a position on the Alumni Association Board.
Currently, I work for O'Keeffe & Company right in the heart of Old Town handling marketing, advertising, and event planning for technology based companies in the D.C. area. After graduating from Sweet Briar College, I was elected class president of my graduating class. Securing this position made me realize I wanted to give back to the Bishop Ireton High School community.
I have been able to build new friendships with my classmates and have created closer bonds with the class as a whole. I look forward to continuing to serve as my class representative and work with the Alumni Association to make the Bishop Ireton community even stronger.
