Marist School’s 2018 Ivy Street Reunion Luncheon took place on Wednesday, June 6 in Ivy Street Center, the building named for the location of Marist School’s original campus in downtown Atlanta. All alumni from the classes of 1935-1966 were invited to Marist School’s current campus for the luncheon to reunite with friends and classmates and reconnect with the school.
Marist values and spirituality permeate all areas of Marist School, which is part of a worldwide network of Marist and Marist-sponsored schools under the auspices of the Society of Mary. At all Marist schools, educators are responsible for living and sharing Marist values with their students and the school community. To make sure Marist educators are well equipped with knowledge about Marist values and the Marist philosophy of education, the Society of Mary holds an annual Marist Educators Workshop for key school personnel. This year, the workshop was hosted in June by Marist School at the St. Ignatius Retreat House in Sandy Springs, Ga.
From June 24 to June 29, 49 Marists of the Society of Mary’s U.S.A. Province met at the Bergamo Retreat Center in Ohio for the annual province retreat. The Bergamo Retreat Center is located on the campus of the University of Dayton, which is sponsored by the Marianists. The theme of the retreat was “Jean-Claude Colin – Then and Now.”
Even though school may be out, the activities never end at Marist School. With over fifteen fun-filled summer camps, there is never a dull moment on campus. Participants in the Lacrosse, Basketball, and Soccer Camps shared what makes their camp, and all Marist camps, so special.
Marist School has won the Georgia Athletic Directors Association (GADA) Director's Cup for the 2017-2018 year. It is the 19th consecutive year that the War Eagles have won the Director's Cup, awarded to recognize the Athletic Programs in each GHSA classification that have excelled and shown superior performance.
