Dear Parents and Guardians,
Marquette University High School is a part of a network of Jesuit educational institutions across North America, including 88 secondary and pre-secondary schools and 28 colleges and universities. Millions of people around the world have experienced the transformative power of a Jesuit education. MUHS graduates benefit from being a part of this influential network as they interact with leaders in business, law, medicine, public service, education, and non-profit work. Similarly, Jesuit school leaders and educators are able to draw from the expertise and research of this network to further advance Jesuit schools.
This week I am in Winnipeg, Canada at an annual meeting of Jesuit school principals. Aside from the frigid temperatures in Winnipeg (currently 18 degrees), the meeting has been professionally rewarding and energizing. It has provided the opportunity to learn from other Jesuit school leaders, share powerful practices, and hear from educational experts. This gathering has also affirmed for me the mission-centered work that occurs at MUHS. We are committed to forming our young men to be intellectually excellent, open to growth, religious, loving, and committed to justice. Thanks to the extraordinary talents and care of our faculty and staff MUHS is able to deliver this mission to our students every day.
Earlier this week I sent an email requesting your feedback as MUHS completes its Cognia re-accreditation and Jesuit Identity self studies. The results of this and other stakeholder surveys will help MUHS in continuous improvement efforts and planning. If you did not get a chance to complete the survey, I invite you to spend less than 10 minutes before Nov. 14 to provide your valuable feedback in the survey linked below.
Enjoy the sunshine and warmer temperatures before the weekend!
Mr. Jeff Monday
