Thank you to all for your support of our Panther Prance. We will have the big reveal tomorrow at 2:00 on a Facebook live post. We will record it and send it out to those not on Facebook. I am as excited as you to find out our total!
As we are gearing up for Spring and Summer sports, a reminder that if you do travel to play in an out of state game/tournament, then students must quarantine per our Healthy at School guidelines. I have included the latest travel guidelines for the state of KY below.
Kentucky Travel Guidelines For Anyone Who Is NOT Vaccinated 
As of Monday 4/5/20 per Governor Andy Beshear
“If you are not vaccinated, it is not safe for you, (to travel) not even remotely. And so we again are advising not to engage in any non-essential travel.”
If you chose to travel and are not fully vaccinated:
-You need to get a viral test 1-3 days before your trip
-After you travel you should get tested within 3-5 days AND self-quarantine for a full seven days after your trip
Matching Donation!
We received the fantastic news that we have a donor that is willing to match donations up to $25,000 for scholarships for next school year! What a blessing! If you would be willing to help us to meet our goal of raising $25,000 in scholarships, you can send a check or cash to the school office or you can donate by credit card here and choose "school scholarship."
Help Pick the Movie!
We have 6 movies to choose from. We have voting jars in the rotunda - it is $1 per vote. Which is your favorite? Spy Kids? Yes Day? The Croods A New Age? Onward? BigFoot Family? or Raya The last Dragon? Your vote counts as many times as you want to send in a $1. Voting will continue for one week.

MQHR Blanket
How about a nice MQHR blanket to cuddle up with while watching the movie and some candy to go with it? You can purchase one or both.
Night of Angels Presents....
MQHR Drive In Movie Night
We are so excited to offer this new option for Night of Angels this year. Although it is more of a family friendly option this year instead of an adults only option, it still gives us the opportunity to gather in a safe manner and raise monies to help support Mary Queen School.

Would you like to highlight your business on the big screen? Give a shout out to your favorite MQ student? We are looking for sponsors for our event. Sponsorship includes a slide on the big move screen and a shout out on our social media. Information and application can be found here or you can contact Mrs. Giacomi at

We are in need of bottles of wine (for our wheelbarrow that we will be auctioning off)
We are in need of gift cards and services to raffle off as well.
