This year's School Play production of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables was a great success. After many hours of rehearsals, our students performed splendidly, and we congratulate all of our young actors on their talent and dedication! Another big congratulations to Jules Harding, Catherine Branchard, and Corinne Chapon for all their hard work producing and directing such a wonderful show. With such a large undertaking, our school was also grateful to have many volunteers, from both our faculty and parents! Thank you to everyone who made this possible.
The aims of a Marymount education are manifold: to educate the heart and mind, and to provide for each student’s total growth, intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically.

It is essential that every child has access to the curriculum and that the right of all children to learn is recognized and respected. There is no one size fits all mode to education.
Representatives from No Planeta B and Global Issues Network had the honor of carrying letters written by student attendees from GINParis 2015 to world leaders involved in COP21, including United Nations Secretary-General Bi-Ki Moon! Marymount students expressed many different environmental concerns in the hopes that their voices would be heard. In the coming days we will be learning about the decisions made by COP21 this year - let us hope that they have listened to the millions of calls for action from around the world and find effective solutions for climate change!
Marymount students were excited to welcome renowned author Cornelia Funke to this year's Writer's Festival. Ms. Funke gave a dynamic and wonderful presentation to our students, giving them great advice and tips on how to make their stories and characters come alive!

Members of the Peace Runners will be in the Paris area, running to their next destination and we are delighted that they have selected Marymount, Paris as a partner school. Our Marymount, Paris "Peace Keeper Students" welcomed them and escort them to the gym for the assembly.

Coordinators in each country partner locally with schools, community groups, sporting organizations, city and state government departments to bring the run to the community as a service encouraging international friendship and understanding.
