Here's a Marion Cross School countdown calendar
Sadness may hang over Marion Cross School as it opens this year, due to the death of the beloved John Girard -- but excitement will also fill the air. Here are some key dates in and around opening day.
Friday, Aug. 24: Teacher in-service day. All day!
Saturday, Aug. 25: Service for Mr. G, St. Denis Catholic Church in Hanover, 10:30 am. Reception to follow on the baseball diamond at Huntley Meadows (rain location: John F. Girard gym at MCS).
Sunday, Aug. 26: Kindergarten Potluck, 5 pm, Huntley Meadow Pavilion. This from the Marion Cross PTO: If your child is starting kindergarten this fall please join your fellow K families for a potluck dinner! Bring a dish or drink to share (nut free, please) and meet your children's classmates and families. Questions? Email Lily Trajman at firstname.lastname@example.org
