Family Day 2016

Family Day is an opportunity for Marlboro parents and families to learn more about the place their students call home from August to May. Last year over 140 family members enjoyed a day full of academic offerings, a community lunch, inspiring alumni, faculty, staff, and student presenters. Join us this year on Saturday, October 8, for a day full of Marlboro.
