A Note from the Principal
-Are you interested in helping volunteer to help teachers? We are looking to bring back a volunteer position(s) where individuals come to school on specified days and make copies or put together packets for teachers. Volunteers must wear a mask and be Virtus certified prior to volunteering. Interested individuals can contact Mr. Luetkemeyer or Mrs. Robinson.
-We have had a volunteer to help with the Yearbook, but could still use other individuals who would like to serve on a yearbook committee to help. Please contact Mr. Luetkemeyer if interested.
-Please note that Parent-Teacher Conference registration was sent earlier today and can also be found in a lower section of the News and Notes.
RISE Virtual Trivia Registration is here!
RISE Trivia Registration
Registration is NOW OPEN for Marquette's annual RISE Trivia Night on Friday, Sept. 25! This year's event will be conducted virtually allowing all participants to test their trivia knowledge from the comforts and safety of home while supporting this great program. Hosted by Tim Edwards, participants will use Zoom and online trivia forms to play. Additionally, the team leader (person who registers and pays for the team) will receive all night-of links and trivia forms on the 25th. Trivia will last from 7 to 9 p.m.
Act soon as registration is only open until midnight on September 21. Round up your friends and/or family, register and support the RISE Program: https://bit.ly/3bPm36X.
*Founded in 2007, the RISE Program helps approximately 60 students with learning differences find success in the classroom through varying levels of support.
2020 Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher Conferences are September 24 and 25. School will dismiss at 2:15 on September 24 and there will be no school on September 25. Thursday conferences are 3:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. and Friday conferences are 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Child care is not provided during conferences other than for those enrolled in aftercare which ends at 5:30.
Conferences will take place in each teacher’s classroom (including middle school). We do ask that each parent wear a mask and we will have desks set up to allow sufficient social distancing between the teacher and parents.
We realize that since every middle school teacher teaches almost every middle school student, there are not enough spots for every parent to see every teacher. If you feel like you need a conference and there are no more spots for a particular teacher, reach out to us and we will determine how to best solve this issue.
How To Schedule a Conference
Once again we will be utilizing the Pick a Time on-line scheduling system. Please understand that these two days are set aside for conferences. It can be a convenient time to take a long weekend trip; however, teachers will not be available to reschedule conferences should you choose to be gone on these days. Conference scheduling will open at 09/13/2020 at 7:00 PM and will close on 09/23/2020 at 3:00 PM. You will not be able to schedule before this time Sunday.
