TMP-M Senior Receives National Awards Congratulations to Thomas More Prep-Marian High School senior Julia Meitner, who was named as a 2022 National Hispanic Scholar by The College Board. Meitner also was named as a 2022 National Rural and Small Town Recognition Scholar by The College Board. Each year, the National Hispanic Recognition Program recognizes between 5,000 and 7,000 academically outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students nationwide who excelled on the PSAT administered during their junior year and scored in the top 2% of more than 400,000 eligible students. Honorees must meet a regional standard score, have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and be of at least one-quarter Hispanic or Latino descent. The National Rural and Small Town Recognition Program recognizes students for the same PSAT score criteria and GPA academic performance, but also recognizes the student’s community and school size. In addition to the national recognition honor, Meitner is a member of several organizations at TMP-Marian, including Key Club, co-editor of the yearbook, stage manager of theatrical performances, Monarch Music, and Spanish Club. She plans to study engineering in college. TMP-Marian is proud of Julia's accomplishments. We wish her the best in her senior year and post-secondary career. God bless and Go Monarchs! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1C6esJK55J7bKhGWDc4qJt-FDnSJ_CbfE/view?usp=sharing
Updated Covid Precautions Take Effect Sep. 7 In conjunction with all Ellis County Schools and the Ellis County Health Department, TMP-M will follow these quarantine protocols: -If your child is sick, do not send them to school. -If someone in the household is awaiting test results for COVID-19, do not send any of your children to school while you wait for the results. -If your child is asymptomatic but you plan to have them tested for COVID-19 in the next two days, do not send them to school. Keeping them home from school prior to testing will remove subsequent quarantine from a positive test. -If you are notified that your child is a close contact with a positive case, they will be required to quarantine for ten days from the date of contact. -Individuals will not be allowed to test out of quarantine. -If both parties are wearing a mask for the duration of contact and social distancing of at least 3 ft is maintained, quarantine may not be enforced. -If your child is vaccinated and remains asymptomatic, they may stay in school and activities. -Face masks will remain optional.
These girls are ready to cheer their first game of the season! Go Monarchs!!!
Friday (tomorrow) is school picture day. HS is in winter formal and JH is in regular uniform. If you didn't get a picture packet handed out at enrollment, there are extras in the office.
Fr. Andy Hammeke and Fr. Elias Chinzarra surprised the students yesterday when they showed up in the dining hall. What a great way to start building relationships and getting to know the students. TMP-Marian is blessed to have both of them on our team this year.
TMP-Marian high school students separated into boy and girl groups on Wednesday to hear from Jana's Campaign speakers on authentic manhood and womanhood. The boys learned about statistics on men's roles in abuse, abuse prevention, and how to better love and protect both the women they love and the women they don't know. The girls learned about respectful relationships and the pressures that can lead to unhealthy relationships. We look to the patron saints St. Joseph and St. Mary, and ask for their prayers to become better men, women, husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, and siblings.
The juniors are studying Luke Chapter 1 today in class. We are talking about how Mary gives us two great examples in chapter 1 that we should follow. The Annunciation-Saying Thy Will Be Done when God asks us to do something and The Visitation-Bringing Christ to others by serving them.
The TMP-M High School Monarchs of the Month as voted on by faculty, staff, & students are as follows: Faculty-Mr. Befort Staff-Kim Stoecklein Student-Rebekah Schroeder. These individuals demonstrated outstanding leadership throughout the month of August and were noticed by many. Congratulations!!!
Thank you to KISS 104.7 and G Herdt's Donut for the delicious donuts this morning.
We were blessed to have Colleen Augustine, Matea Gregg, and Geoff Andrews from the Salina Diocese out this morning talking to our students about the positives and negatives of social media. They gave our students some great tips and information on how to use social media positively and healthily while protecting themselves from the negative side of social media.
