29th Edition: April 21, 2017

Pilgrims on the Way of Truth

Take a deep breath...It's PROM WEEK! After months of planning, it's finally here! We hope this coming event becomes a joyful memory for all our students. If you have any availability to help out - our Parents' Association is still in need of volunteers to help run the blackjack tables we usually have set up for the students. Please complete the sign-up form below if you are available!

We invite you all to join us on Friday to view the students as they complete their official "Promenade" in Landers Pavilion, starting around 5:40 pm on April 28th. It's wonderful to see all our young men and women dressed in their finest, celebrating this moment in their lives. 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!

    Junior Year Boot Camp Available THIS SUMMER!

    Any student who has graduated can share with you what educators have known for years - junior year is a rough one. Students start thinking about college, the course work becomes even more challenging, standardized tests, and is no wonder they stress out. Based on parent demand, Mrs. Hilton and Mrs. Littner are offering a Junior Year Boot Camp to help soon-to-be juniors begin to prepare for the rigors and stress of next fall. Attached you will find a letter which will give you details about the content, dates, and cost of the camp, as well as a registration form. This camp will be held from June 12-June 15th. We are limiting the class to 25 per class, so register early and mail it to the address on the form. Please make sure you put “JUNIOR BOOT CAMP” on the envelope as we have many camps going on this summer.
