30th Edition: April 28, 2017

Pilgrims on the Way of Truth

After this weekend, we officially reach the "home-stretch" of our school year. As you know, the anticipation can hardly be contained - but we must all do our very best to finish strong. Please check your students' grades often as we will be officially at mid-term this coming Tuesday, May 2nd. If your student is struggling with any classes - please encourage him/her to conference with teachers immediately and develop this very important skill of self-advocacy.



Mark your calendars and join us in this very important process of selecting our new superintendent! We will be following the same interview schedule as we did with the previous two candidates:

May 3, 2017 (Wednesday)

1:00 pm - Candidate meets with MC Admin team

2:30 pm - Candidate "town hall" meeting with Faculty and Staff in cafeteria

4:00 pm - Candidate formal interview with Interview Committee

6:00 pm - Candidate informal social open house with MC community in Cafeteria


Please pray for our Juniors and Seniors as they celebrate their Prom tonight at The Cotillion! Our seniors are probably sleeping in today (thanks to their victory in the Jeep Raffle Sales contest!) and our juniors are anxious for the noon-dismissal bell. We pray that our students remain safe all weekend, including any travelling or post-prom activities they are looking forward to enjoying together.

Come join us to celebrate the "Promenade" in Landers Pavilion, starting around 5:40 pm on April 28th. If you've misplaced the "Prom Letter", it's linked here again for your convenience, and it's also posted in full on our Marian website. By this time, the itinerary is probably all that you will need, and we have included that below in the Week At-A-Glance for you!
