Congé 2023: Fairmont Forever
– Saturday, January 28, 2023 –

On the evening of Saturday, January 28, 2023, we will welcome everyone to Duchesne for our annual fundraising soiree called Congé. The proceeds from this event are vital to the school’s annual operating budget and tuition assistance program. A silent and live auction will be held online days before January 28 and certain items from Duchesne Memorabilia will be displayed at the event.

This year’s Congé theme – Fairmont Forever - originated from a “hashtag” in the complimentary close of an email we received from a supportive out-of-state alumna. Her correspondence was sent following Congè 2022 thanking Duchesne for the opportunity to participate in the auction from afar. This made her feel like she was a part of our long-standing tradition. The phrase immediately sparked joy!

Some of you may wonder what the word “Fairmont” means to Duchesne. Since the late 1970s, our school uniforms have been made with red and gray Fairmont plaid, and the skirts are an iconic symbol of Duchesne Academy. Symbols and memories from our time spent at Duchesne have created sisterlike bonds that continue well beyond the four years spent at 3601 Burt Street. These connections to Duchesne are forever!

At the event, you will see school spirit throughout the halls, and red, white, and plaid all over! Guests will congregate in student-decorated rooms throughout the building – showcasing our girls’ love for Duchesne!

Merci Beaucoup!…
