FINAL CALL for Teacher Appreciation Submissions!

Did you know that almost every teacher keeps a folder to preserve kind notes, letters, and emails from students and parents? Often titled "Warm Fuzzies" - or even "For When You're Having a Bad Day..." We reach into that folder and just take a few minutes to remind ourselves why we do what we do - and it gives us the strength, love, and faith to push through whatever difficult time we are experiencing. (Not that the final weeks of 4th quarter are challenging, right?) In short, the kind words of our students and families stay with us forever. Even when we are retiring and sorting through boxes of class supplies - WE KEEP THE NOTES.

Please consider taking a few minutes and writing a few notes to the Marian teachers and staff who have helped shape your student's experience in high school.

It would be absolutely wonderful to FLOOD their mailboxes with printed messages from students and parents - it's just the boost our teachers need as our school-year kicks into that final flurry of grades, ceremonies, celebrations, and deadlines!



Teacher, Staff Member, Coach, Adviser - let's show them the LOVE! It will be SO APPRECIATED! Fill out as many as you want!


Today, we held the Honors Day & Graduation Ceremony practice! All the Seniors practiced lining up, marching, and taking the stage to receive their diplomas! This was also our opportunity to hand out their Graduation Cap & Gown! Please make sure that those sizes and accessories are exactly as ordered. We want enough time to make any corrections with Jostens. Also - it's recommended that the gowns be ironed!

As we announced each senior's full name and home parish, we asked for each student to confirm if we had the correct pronunciation and information. Ms. Novy and Mrs. Loy do their very best to make sure that your family is honored by the correct pronunciation.

That said, we do ask that you please respect the request we will make that night to hold your applause and individual celebration until we have read ALL the graduates' names. Every student invited to the stage to receive a diploma has earned that moment.

Senior End of Year Schedule and Information

MC Dinner Auction SURVEY! Please help us make next year's event EVEN BETTER!!!

On behalf of the entire Marian Central Catholic High School community, we would like to thank those who supported our Casino Night: 2019 Annual Dinner Auction and Super Raffle! Your generosity helped ensure a successful event, which raised nearly $80,000. The proceeds from both fundraisers will support tuition assistance for the young men and women attending Marian.

We would love to hear your feedback! Even if you weren't able to attend the event, we would like to hear your ideas for the future. Please take a few minutes to answer the survey.

Thank you for supporting Marian Central and its students!


Linked here, please find this year's Promenade 2019 Photos! Our publications staff is still working to edit these photos (as some may still be a little blurry or need lighting adjustment through photoshop!) but we thought you would enjoy a sneak-peek at the photos! Keep checking back, as the student-photographers are busy editing and making these photos turn out as wonderful as possible!

You're more than welcome to download a copy for yourself and share out with friends and family!


We received in all the Senior Exam Exemption applications by Friday 3:00 pm. We will be working through the weekend to check grades, attendance, and discipline. Our goal is to have our FIRST ROUND of letters out to students on Tuesday May 7th, through FIRST HOUR CLASSES.

If your student submitted an application - but DOES NOT receive a letter on May 7th- it will be because there is an appeal that we are working to consider. All APPEAL answers will be delivered the following Tuesday, May 14th through 1st hour teachers. Once those final appeal answers are out, we must move forward with planning our exams.

Please know that we check on our appealed applications DAILY and by May 14th, all students will know which exams they have to prepare to take the following week!

Need a SPORTS PHYSICAL? Do we have a DEAL for YOU! (and Marian!)

Pradeep N Raju MD, from OrthoIllinois, is extending an AMAZING deal for SPORTS PHYSICALS! Please read his message and perhaps this will work with your schedule (and budget) AND it helps Marian Central!

I just wanted to extend an opportunity to the schools in our area for sports physicals at Orthoillinois in Algonquin this summer, as either mass physicals or at walk-in convenience. Each physical would be $10 and streamlined at our Algonquin location through Injury Express. The money from the physicals would go back in one check to the school to be utilized by your athletic department. Your athletes also have the option to come during regular office hours for their physical 8-8 M-F and 10-4 Saturday, this fee will also by directed back to the individuals school. Thank you for allowing me, over the last 8 months, to care for your athletes.

For the ones who do not know me, I grew up in Crystal Lake and a former graduate of Prairie Ridge High School. I am board certified in both Family and Sports Medicine with an extensive concussion background. It would be great to care for the community I grew up in! Please don't hesitate to call me with any questions.
