The Preschool Press

December 3, 2021

Seeing the joy at the Christmas programs of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends was a beautiful experience. Thank you for attending and supporting our wonderful school! A special thank you to Mrs. Monica Barbour for directing the program, Mr. Jon Lawrence for narrating the show, and Mrs. Sarah Bergner for designing the set, running music, and handling all the other behind the scenes details.

The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is celebrated on December 12th. Below are some wonderful resources to explain the story and the image. I encourage you to watch them so you can share this beautiful story with your children.

Volunteering and VIRTUS

Each year, we rely on volunteers to help support classroom and school activities, field trips, fundraising activities, athletics and much more. Volunteers play a critical role at Marquette, and we appreciate your dedication, time and talent.

What you need to do:

  • First, VIRTUS Child & Youth Protection Requirements have three components: 1.) the background check submission 2.) adherence to policies, procedures, and ethical standards, and 3.) the child & youth protection education training. Each component needs to be renewed every five years.

  • Registration for First-time Users:
    • Visit
    • Select “First-Time Registrant” to create an online VIRTUS account.
    • Follow the onscreen step-by-step instructions for completing the process. We require all volunteers to start this process no later than two week before the date of volunteering.


  • Update Existing Account:
    • Registered volunteers are encouraged to login at the beginning of every school year to ensure that all personal information is correct. Upon login, your account will prompt you to complete any necessary requirements. Automated emails are sent through VIRTUS approximately one week before they expire. Please ensure that the registered email address is correct.
