Rapier, named for Fr. George Rapier, S.M., first principal of Marist, is the name of the school’s literary publication. Students and advisors collect, select, and organize literary (written) and art (visual) submissions for publication in the magazine. Staff members discuss and choose a theme for the volume and create a layout that reflects the theme. Members design the magazine’s layout, adding literary and art pieces, as appropriate. Students may join by attending the meetings as their time permits during Activity Period. To be listed as a “staff member,” specific hours of participation are required. Special skills are helpful but not essential, e.g. artistic, knowledge of computer and design programs (Photoshop), organizational skills, etc.
