Warm Winter Greetings From Mrs. Broderick

Hello Marymount Families!

I am pleased to report that Marymount received high praise and several notable accolades yesterday as our CAIS visiting team wrapped up their visit to our school this week. They saw our community in action through the hard work of the faculty, staff and administration as well as the dedication to sustainability of our Board of Trustees. What the visiting team enjoyed most however, were the expressive stories, laughter, and smiling faces of our phenomenal student body. Of course, I believe this is a testament to you, our wonderful Marymount families. We also received thoughtful feedback and unanimous support to continue our plans for the upcoming strategic planning process, growing and enhancing our curriculum, further establishing Marymount’s brand and strong reputation, and really committing to our school’s Mission and identity of inclusivity and kindness.

As stated in my December letter of the Marymount Messenger, the 2019-20 Tuition and Enrollment information is now available and can be viewed by clicking here.  Re-enrollment contracts will be going out to all families through a newly improved enrollment management system on Friday, January 18.  Please see the important re-enrollment message below and directions from Director of Admissions, Molly Seguel.

We are gratefully heading into the upcoming 3-day weekend celebrating the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr, I want to provide you a few important quotes from Dr. King to share with your students and families. They remind us what is at the heart of the Marymount community and the culture of integrity, character and kindness we continue to strive to model and to foster in our children as they grow into the human beings we need and hope for.
