Dear Parents and Guardians,
Good day to all!
On the outset, I hope that you and your family are all safe and healthy as you read this letter.
I thank you for your continued trust and confidence on Marist Education. Marist School remains committed to continue to provide your child/children quality holistic, Christian education amid these extraordinary times.
Over the past months, school administrators and academic personnel have been working with information and communication technology professionals in drafting the School Program for SY 2020-2021 and, particularly, in setting up distance and online teaching-learning modalities that conform to guidelines on new norms in education, health, and safety as mandated by the government. Through these innovative learning approaches, we are confident that we would be able to provide educational opportunities and enriching experiences for every Marist School learner while standard classroom instruction is not feasible.
