Pilgrims on the Way of Truth

8th Edition November 4, 2016

Quarter 2 has started out with such a flurry of excitement! What an emotional roller-coaster this past week has been for so many of our students and faculty, with the Cubs history-making victory, rooting our Football team at the 2nd Round Play Off game tonight, cheering our Girls Volleyball team on to Super-Sectionals on 11/5, celebrating our two State Cross Country runners on 11/5...and, having Quarter 2 grades posted mid-week!

As much as our schedules seem to always overtake our lives, we pray for a few quiet moments, too, where we can count our many blessings as a school community. We are honored to host Parent/Teacher Conferences this coming week and continue to build strong relationships with our families. We also encourage our families to complete the survey regarding the Diocesan school strategic plan.

A special shout-out to our Marian Central band, led by Mr. Tom Rome, who will be performing at the Harley-Davidson Veterans Memorial Patriot Day Celebration tomorrow, Nov. 5th. This celebration honors all veterans and current military personnel. Some activities included in this day will be a Silent Drill team, American flag presentation, Military Color Guard (accompanied by our very own MCCHS band), a fly-over and honoring the Gold Star families. A presentation by a local POW chair, and placing a wreath by the Military Memorial Monument will take place at the permanent display at the Harley dealership on Rt. 47 in Woodstock. Please join our community - and support our band - at this very important event!

Enjoy the wonderful weekend weather!
