Dances, laughter, school spirit, and a whole lot of fun are all a major part of life at Marian. Nothing revs up spirit like participation in activities such as Field Day and Senior Football. Walkathon is a major all-school fundraiser for local non-profit organizations, and Candlelight is a sentimental rite of passage at Marian. Students become closer to their families through several Dad/Daughter and Mother /Daughter activities held throughout the year while dances and other activities, both casual and formal, are often the highlight of the school year.

List of 7 items.

  • Dances

    Marian High School currently holds two major dances during the school year. Both the Christmas Dance in December and the Junior/Senior Prom in April are held off the Marian campus. Marian students complete special dance contracts for these two dances.
  • Field Day

    Field Day is a day away from the normal “readin’, writin’, and ’rithmetic” and an opportunity for students to become involved in community and class building activities. Friendships are made, pride in each class is strengthened, and students get to create costumes from colored garbage bags! Each class determines its theme for the event; the theme is then incorporated into every facet of the day including t-shirt and costume designs, song writing contests, parades, students, and banner contests.

    Year after year classes put in weeks of preparation, hard work, and dedication simply to earn the bragging rights of being named Field Day Champions!
  • Senior Football

    Senior Football is a 30+ year tradition which begins for seniors with daily practices on the Marian playing fields in August – and ends with one flag football game against perennial rival Regina High School in September. Senior Football builds Senior Class and school spirit – and might just end with the coveted gold football trophy which is handed off to the winning school each year.

    The Marian Dads’ Club sponsors a pre-game kick-off party on the school’s back field before cheering the team on to victory. Marian alumnae, recent and not-so-recent, as well as students from all grade levels and their families travel across town to witness this annual spirited game.

  • Walkathon

    Marian’s annual Walkathon, sponsored by the All School Board, is held each May. Students obtain pledges and walk a six-mile route through nearby neighborhoods to raise money to support local charities and ASB activities. Marian Dads’ Club members are always present at this event, grilling hot dogs for the walkers upon their return.
  • Candlelight

    Candlelight is an annual end-of-the-year tradition where seniors pass the leadership torch, a lit candle, to the juniors in exchange for a rose. While the candle symbolizes leadership, the rose represents friendship. Candlelight is the first time the seniors wear their caps and gowns; this ceremony, filled with songs and speeches about the bonds formed at Marian, marks the beginning of graduation activities. Seniors are formally welcomed into the Marian Alumnae Association.
  • Dad/Daughter Activities

    The number one mission of the Marian Dads’ Club is to organize events that bring dads and their daughters together! In the 2015-2016 school year, the Dads’ Club will host the Senior Football Kickoff Party and the Father/Daughter Liturgy and Breakfast in the fall; the Father/Daughter Christmas Party in December; the Father/Daughter Service Project in the spring; and the Father/Daughter Tiger Game in May. While supporting the school in many different ways, the Dads' Club continues to emphasize events to bring dads and daughters together.
  • Mother/Daughter Activities

    The Mothers’ Club sponsors activities throughout the year for Marian moms and their daughters to share that special bonding time together. Among the many mother/daughter activities at Marian are the Mother/Daughter Liturgy and Brunch, Mother/Daughter Yoga, and the Mother/Daughter Social Event. It’s not unusual to see Marian students working alongside their moms at activities such as Benefit Evening, Open House, and various hospitality events.
