A Note From the Director

  • This week we delivered Valentines to our friends like postal workers, made lots of love crafts, and practiced Eucharistic gestures in catechesis. With the start of Lent, we are talking about prayer, fasting, and almsgiving in our classes as well.
  • Registration for Summer Play Days is now open. See the flyers below for more information. To register, visit our website or click here.
  • Next week is Dr. Seuss's birthday and some of the classes are doing special dress-up days. Please check your class calendar or Facebook pages for information.
  • Fall class photos are still available for purchase at arrival and dismissal for $5 each.

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 will be emailed to families today 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.

Lunch During Lent

All of the in-school Fridays during the months of February and March fall during the Lenten season, so we will not be serving meat on those days, hence no Chick-fil-A. Luckily, the McNellies Group will be providing us with a couple of delicious options that we will alternate for the five Fridays during Lent. We will not be in school the first two Fridays of February so the first lunch (Feb. 19th) will be spaghetti, garlic bread, and a dessert, and the second lunch (Feb. 26th) will be macaroni and cheese, green beans, and a dessert. Again, we will be alternating these two selections during the month of March. Thank you so much for the continued support of this 8th-grade fundraiser! If you have any questions, please let us know.
