Thirty Marist thespians journeyed to Columbus, Ga., February 6-8, to participate in the annual Georgia State Thespian Conference (ThesCon). ThesCon is one of the largest gatherings of high school theater students in the country. Over 5,000 students and their directors attend the Conference every year for a weekend of shows, workshops, performances, and auditions.
On February 6, Marist School brought together its Board of Trustees and capital campaign leadership to bless and dedicate a new donor wall that serves as a visual representation of the extraordinary support for The Way. The Hope. The Promise., the record-setting, $37.2 million capital campaign the school completed in 2016.
Three years ago, Marist School’s Counseling Office began presenting Parenting Conversations, a series that provides parents with opportunities to learn and dialogue about important topics related to parenting teens. The inspiration for the series came from parents themselves when they responded to a survey sent by the Counseling Office. Always striving to meet parents’ counseling-related needs, Marist counselors work closely with administration each year to bring in speakers that help parents navigate the journey of parenting middle and high school-age children.
