This Week's "UB Special" Award!

"UB Special" awards are given to one student each week. Staff select a special student who has demonstrated good qualities of leadership, courage, perseverance, ambition, friendship, or achievement.


This week’s UB Special Award goes to XANDER GOCHENAUR.


Xander is a Junior student at Fondy Central who is consistent in writing his reflection papers; they prove without a doubt that he is thinking about his future and taking his participation in the UBMS program seriously. He shows his responsibility by being one of a few students who stops by our office to drop forms off to ensure we have them on a timely basis. Because he finds value in our program, Xander has initiated visits for program staff to go to his school to meet with other students and invite them to hear about the services we have to offer. Xander is passionate about cats and dedicates a lot of time fostering care and volunteering at the Waupun Area Animal Shelter. He is currently taking care of a new litter of kittens that his foster cat very recently delivered. His dedication to the Sabre Gardens carried through after last summer's program when he came back in August to help Dr. Morris finish up his summer project. Xander continues to quietly do great things and that is why he deserves this week's "UB Special" Award. Please join us in congratulating him!

Our Family is Growing!

We give a BIG, WARM UBMS Welcome to two new students this week!

BAILEY CARPENTER is a Freshmen who joins us from Horace Mann.
SYDNEY VANG is a Freshmen who joins us from Fondy High.

Bailey and Sydney will be great additions to our program. We are happy to have them join our UBMS Family. WELCOME!

Both of these students were referred by others in the program. We encourage everyone to make the same referrals! Invite your friends to join! We are still accepting applications.

BIRTHDAYS!

Very HAPPY Happy Birthday Wishes go out to these lovely ladies celebrating this week -

MEGAN REIMER turns 17 tomorrow, Saturday April 30th!
CASSIDY KAHL
turns 17 on Thursday, May 5th!

April Reflection Papers Due - MAY 9th

Because the first Monday of May is an early date, we are giving students until May 9th to submit their papers. Please do not let this be an excuse to procrastinate longer!

We are anxious to hear what students thought of the Money Smart Week presentation by Mrs. Klemm from National Exchange Bank. If you did not attend this required program, please watch your emails for the make-up assignment that Chris will be sending you.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for May's REQUIRED PROGRAM

Back by popular demand, we are arranging another Career Panel on Wednesday, May 25th from 5:30 - 7:00 in the Stayer Dining Room.

We've been listening to your requests and happy to have four panelists confirmed already from the areas of technology, journalism, engineering, and physical therapy.

Come prepared with questions AND pen and paper - again, it would be a good time to dust off your white binders and fill them with valuable information.

This notice is being given to you nearly one month in advance. It is a required event. We ask that you make every effort to be there. Thanks for your cooperation.

Fondy Seniors will be excused if attending their Senior Awards Banquet that evening.

SENIOR Recognition

Seniors, PLEASE mark your calendars for Friday, July 29th! We hope you and your family can join us for our End of Summer Recognition Luncheon. We look forward to this opportunity to honor you and your accomplishments and wish you well in your future endeavors!

Celebrate Marian Weekend - April 29-31, 2016

Check out the activities that are happening all weekend including 3 BIG BANDS coming to Marian on Saturday the 30th - FREE and open to Alumni, Students, Parents and Community!

2–6:30 p.m. Live Music (Naber Hall grass area)


2 p.m. Chasin‘ Mason — Since their formation in 2003, the Wisconsin-based group has wasted little time establishing themselves as one of the hottest up and coming bands in country music.

3:45 p.m. Young Rising Sons — Fueled by a fierce

chemistry and brother-like camaraderie, Red Bank, New Jersey- based foursome Young Rising Sons deliver anthemic alt-rock that's uplifting and infectious but unshakably honest.

5:30 p.m. Sammy Adams — Boston's Sammy Adams caused quite a stir in 2010 when his debut album topped the online hip-hop charts the week of its release. It's with that joy and energy that Adams approaches his career as a pop artist.

During the afternoon, there will also be great entertainment opportunities including bubble soccer, caricature artists, spin art frisbees and more! All events will be in the Naber Grass area. In the case of inclement weather, we will be located at the Stayer Center Parking Lot.
