85th Edition: September 21, 2018

Pilgrims on the Way of Truth

Homecoming Week is HERE!

This coming week is such a joy to celebrate at Marian Central! This year's theme is "Timeless" so we are anticipating seeing poodle skirts, flappers, 80's neon (and maybe some parachute pants perhaps?) and even some 90's flannel. We are launching the week's celebration with our Homecoming Pep Assembly on Monday, at which we will also announce the Homecoming Court! We have typically announced the court over the intercom the day after court-voting, but we feel it deserves a little more fanfare and excitement - so we are looking forward to this celebration! Our PowderPuff game will be held Monday night at 7:00 pm as well!

Throughout the week, our amazing Key Club is hosting a Personal Care Item drive to help benefit the local food pantries and shelters. If you are doing your weekly grocery shopping, please consider picking up an extra bottle of shampoo, bar of soap, shaving cream, toothpaste, or box of Q-Tips to donate! We will be accepting donations in school all week, at the PowderPuff game (as admission) and at the co-ed Volleyball tournament on Thursday after school.

Please join us in Landers Pavilion this coming Friday at 8:45 am to celebrate our Homecoming Mass and honor our Distinguished Alumni! All are welcome to attend!

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend - and we pray for a safe and joy-filled Homecoming Week for all our students and families!
