The Marinette Catholic Central Foundation is doing a survey that they would like all parents and/or grandparents to participate in. They would like to know the number of 1st, 2nd, etc. generation students who attended a catholic school. The survey is not specific to attending STAA/Marinette Catholic Central/Our Lady of Lourdes, but rather looking at all catholic and private education. Please visit the following link to complete the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/62BXYJR Thank you for participating!
