Freshman Class Cleans Up!

The Freshman class, under the direction of Freshman Theology teacher, Mrs.Gittermeier, spearheaded a Personal Hygiene drive during this year's Catholic Schools Week.  The whole school pitched in and collected over 800 items to be donated to Catholic Charities.  

Catholic Schools Week is a week set aside to focus on the benefits of the combination of Faith, Education, and Service.  Marquette and area parochial schools came together to celebrate Mass with Bishop Paprocki.  After Mass, Noah Fahnestock took a moment to point out the 1st place State trophy the Boys Soccer team won this year.

Marquette student body kicked off this year's Catholic Schools Week focusing on the past by wearing their grade school uniform, the present by bonding with friends while ice skating and the future by raising money for St. Baldrick's to help fight Childhood Cancer.
