The Marist Latin Team competed in the areas of Academics, Creative Arts, and Graphic Arts at the 2018 Georgia Junior Classical League State Convention and won first place in its division for both total points and points per delegate.
For the first time, Marist School participated in the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) administration of the National Spanish Composition Contest. Marist's Spanish IV and AP Spanish students participated in all classes and did exceedingly well.
At its 2018 Alumni Awards Luncheon held at the Capital City Club in Brookhaven on March 28, the Marist Alumni Association honored three individuals for their exceptional service to the school and to the community.
The Marist value of hospitality was at the forefront on April 26 as Marist School welcomed nearly 550 grandparents to campus to enjoy time with their grandchildren and learn about Marist School’s history and mission. Though rain threatened in the morning, it thankfully stayed away long enough for everyone to enjoy breakfast, a special program, and an optional Mass.
This spring, the artistic talents of the Marist community have been on display to the great delight of many. In early April, the 2018 Spring Arts Showcase featured two Marist Dance Company concerts as well as an art exhibit of work by Mr. Patrick DeAngelis’ AP Studio Art students. In conjunction with the showcase, a new granite bench installation by artist Maria Artemis was unveiled in the Gunn Gallery. Ms. Artemis, mother of Marist School alumni Peter Sawyer ’88, is a noted Georgia artist. The design of the new bench highlights interesting veins, curves, and lines in the piece of granite and provides a comfortable spot for gallery visitors to view the art on display.
In recognition of Women’s History Month in March, Marist School’s Office for Inclusion & Diversity hosted a panel discussion for students. Three guest speakers spoke about their career paths, all of which have forged professional work with a call to serve others. The panel provided an excellent opportunity for students to learn how they can continue to be Marist even after they graduate.
