The Marquette High carpool system is now available and all parents with students in the classes of 2018-2021 received information to access the system. The carpool module, a secure system housed within our website, has been updated for families who have students in the Classes of 2018-2021. Currently, the family contact information shows students' current grades (8th – 11th). In late July, the system will be refreshed and show students' entering grades for the fall semester.

This summer, the entire Marquette High community will read Whirligig by Paul Fleischman in preparation for book discussion opportunities in fall 2017 and a visit from the author in early October. Parents are invited to read the book as opportunities for adult discussions will be provided as well. We ask that all students secure a copy of the book through their public library, local bookseller or through Amazon and read the book before the first day of school. An audiobook version of the book is available free of charge on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlrrXCkkRx0. If you have questions, contact Library Director Mrs. Ann O'hara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Marquette High will have a new spirit wear vendor on July 1. The new vendor is SkyHigh Marketing of Waukesha. Sales will still be made through an online store; however, we will offer different brands at a lower price point, be able to offer accessories such as umbrellas, blankets, water bottles, stickers etc... and delivery will be faster as we will have inventory at a warehouse (weekly deliveries). We will continue to offer flash sales throughout the year to bring in special merchandise. Our current Topper Shop will be open through June 30, if you want to make a purchase. Otherwise, we will send out an email on July 1 to alert you to our store. Topper Shop
MUHS and DSHA students participated a Civil Rights History/Service trip to Mississippi this past April. One of their service projects was to landscape the Emmett Till Museum in Glendora. This museum is the only viable business in this extremely impoverished town. Their gift shop is in need of items to sell and we are gathering all NEW or USED history books on Emmett Till, specifically, or Civil Rights as a general study. Any questions, contact Mr. Lese. All books can be delivered to Mr. Lese in Room 204.
In compliance with upcoming payment card Industry standards, as of July 1, 2017, changes will be made to the servers that host the MUHS website. Users with browsers older than IE11, Chrome 22, Firefox 27, Safari 7, and Safari Mobile 5 will not be able to access secure website content (forms, payment pages, etc..). Although this will affect less than 1% of our users, we wanted to alert everyone to make sure all are using an updated browser.

At a recent neighborhood meeting hosted by MUHS, concerns were expressed by area homeowners regarding MUHS students rolling through stop signs and exceeding speed limits on streets near the high school. Stop signs at 34th and Clybourn and 39th and Michigan are specific problem intersections, as well as excessive speed on Michigan Street between 35nd and 39th Streets. Please remind your sons to obey all traffic laws for their safety and the safety of our community. Neighbors and our security guards will report offenders (by license plate number or car description) to Security Director Dubis and Mr. Taylor for follow up. Thank you for helping us keep your sons safe.
Science Teacher Joe Meyer answered the Pope's call to care for God's creation by founding the Laudato Si' Project, which promotes environmental appreciation and care within the Catholic community. The Catholic Herald published a feature story on the program. Go to Catholic Herald Story.
Parents are asked to remind their sons that they must park in the school's student parking lots rather than on the side streets when off-street space is available. Licensed student drivers who drive a car to school must register their cars and have a valid student parking sticker on the vehicle(s) they drive to school. Contact Dean of Students Casey Kowalewski, email@example.com, with any questions.
