Marist School is happy to congratulate the success of the Marist Robotics teams at the recent State First Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics Tournament held over the weekend. The teams, comprised of students from 7th to 12th grade, showcased exceptional teamwork, technical aptitude, and innovation, setting a high standard for competition. Two Marist teams, along with their esteemed moderator Mr. Christopher Michaud, brought home trophies from the competition.
The theme of Marist School’s all-school assembly in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was service as a pathway to justice. Through a collaborated effort between Marist’s Diversity Team and the Marist Alumni Office, students, faculty, and staff were inspired by the Marist graduates and faculty members who spoke eloquently on the topic. Marist values and Church teachings focus on service to others, and Martin Luther King, Jr. himself famously said, “Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.” It was energizing to hear engaging stories of servant leadership, all of which provided excellent models to which Marist students can aspire.
This winter, Marist School elevated its dedication to providing enriching educational opportunities through an Alumni Speaker Series designed for Spanish classes. Alumni from diverse backgrounds and experiences shared insights with students in Honors Spanish III and IV and Advanced Placement (AP) Spanish courses, shedding light on their unique journeys abroad and how they utilized their Spanish language skills along the way.
Marist School celebrated a historic occasion January 12-14 as Emmaus 200 unfolded at the Blessed Trinity Shrine and Retreat Center in Ft. Mitchell, Alabama. This spiritual retreat, deeply embedded in the Marist tradition, has been a transformative experience for generations, fostering a sense of community, spiritual growth, and personal reflection.
