A Note From the Director

  • This week was filled with Dr. Seuss fun! We read lots of books, dressed up as our favorite characters, and were surprised with lots of wackiness on Wednesday. In Music this week we played percussion instruments and in Art we made Georgia O'Keeffe-inspired flowers!
  • Registration for Summer Play Days is now open. See the flyers below for more information. To register, visit our website or click here.
  • Instead of an Art Show this year we are having an Art Parade! Please see the flyer below for more information.

COVID-19 Taskforce

A Covid-19 Taskforce was recently created at Marquette to identify COVID-19 risks to health and property, to make plans to mitigate those risks, to propose those plans to school leadership, and to execute those plans faithfully with full transparency for the community. The first assessment report from the Taskforce is complete and was emailed to families last week from the email address. The Taskforce plans to send updates periodically as challenges are identified and/or new guidance is presented. The weekly COVID-19 case updates will continue coming from the address each Friday as well.
