  • Marist Arts Guild

    The Marist Arts Guild plays a critical role in promoting excellence and opportunity in all areas of fine arts education and important extracurricular activities that are a part of the fabric of Marist School.  We provide advocacy as well as financial and volunteer support for the Fine Arts Department, including instrumental music, choral music, visual arts, drama and dance.
    The funds we raise provide instruments, uniforms and choral attire, much needed supplies, facility improvements and awards for student achievement.  Parents help build sets for dramatic productions in Woodruff Auditorium, fit uniforms for the War Eagle Marching Band, drive buses and vans, load sets and instruments, mount exhibits, sew costumes and flags, prepare and serve refreshments, usher, help with filing and phone calls, and organize volunteers.
  • Marist Booster Club

    The Booster Club helps maintain excellence for all Marist athletic programs through financial and volunteer support.  The financial support supplements the athletic budget to provide the best equipment and training for our student-athletes.  Numerous volunteers assist in Marist's sixy-nine athletic opportunities.
    The funds raised through the efforts of many Booster Club volunteers help to enable our student-athletes have the proper equipment and training facilities when they participate in athletics.  This funding is obtained through membership, fundraisers (Golf and Tennis Tournaments, Celebrity Roast, and Marist Auction), and athletic concession stands.

    In addition to providing the sports banquets for all varsity and junior varsity student-athletes, the Booster Club sponsors the Scholar-Athlete and Dean Hargis award programs.  The recipient of the Scholar-Athlete Award is chosen for his or her exemplary academic achievement and is presented a plaque, certificate, and a patch at his or her team banquet.  A male and a female overall Scholar-Athlete are chosen from the senior scholar-athletes and are recognized at the end of the year senior assembly.  The Dean Hargis Award recognizes the senior male and female athletes who have made outstanding contributions to Marist School through leadership, dedication and perseverance.

  • Families in Action

    Families In Action celebrates two decades at Marist this fall with focus on safer social guidelines for our students and effective communication among our parents. Over the years, Families In Action has grown into a strong tradition of Marist parents sharing concerns about issues involving the health and safety of their children. Our goal is to become attuned to the challenges facing our teens today and to address our children and each other with a unified voice. We seek to provide a safe, healthy, and chemical-free environment in which our children may develop.
    As a standing committee of Marist Parents' Club, we are working together with the school administration to enhance communication among our parents. Our parent workshops are designed to give parents valuable information and techniques for dealing with current issues involving our teens. Small group sessions are facilitated by trained Marist parents.

    We are very proud to be a member of the (NAPC) North Atlanta Parents' Council, representing several schools in the metro area that support area families in rearing healthy, responsible, and productive young people.
