A Note from the Principal

  • Marquette will be in session on April 18th (Easter Monday), as a make-up day. RISE and Shine (Donuts) will be moved to April 25th.
  • Lunch is open for March and will close on February 25th at 5 PM.
  • Due to the snow day last Thursday, February 3; our business office is working to process hot lunch refunds. These refunds will be processed during the first week of March.

    If you prefer to not receive a refund, and have your funds serve as a donation towards the teacher and staff appreciation celebration in May, email Stephanie Jimison at sjimison@christthekingcatholic.church, no later than Friday, February 18. Please include your students name(s) in the email. Refunds will be credited to remaining tuition balances. For families who have paid their tuition balance in full, a check will be sent to the home address we have on file in FACTS. Our system does not allow for us to carry a balance of funds forward to pay for a future lunch order.


    *A separate email was sent out, by Mrs. Jenkinson, regarding the missed Chick-fil-A lunch on Friday, February 4.

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 www.virtusonline.org.
    • Select “First-Time Registrant” to create an online VIRTUS account.
    • Follow the onscreen step-by-step instructions for completing the process (PDF instructions attached as well). We require all volunteers to start this process no later than two week before the date of volunteering.

OR

  • 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.

Yearbook Picture Submissions
