General Information

Piano II Opportunity 

Looking for more music in your life? Have you played some piano in the past and miss tickling the ivories? The Marian Music Department would love to have you join us next semester in Level 2 Piano!

 
Piano II is open to any students who have taken Piano 1 or that have had three or more years of piano. This would be a great opportunity for students who have already played piano to brush up on their skills, learn new songs, and to grow in their musicianship with other students. 
 
Speak with your counselor today to adjust your schedule. The class takes place in block G. We hope you will join us!

Marian’s chapter of Rho Kappa (the social studies honor society) will once again be selling “Finals Survival Kits” to help your daughter survive finals week.

Orders are due Dec. 9. Your kit will be delivered during homeroom on Dec. 14. The price is $12, and all proceeds will benefit the Marian Chapter of the Rho Kappa Society, which provides needs-based scholarships for students to attend academic co-curricular events.   All contents are nut-free.

$14.00 per Hour, Flexible and Part-Time Projects — Seeking Assistance with:

Law Office Projects and General Outdoors Projects, in Midtown, Omaha

I’m a solo-practice attorney and medical doctor by education (Klein Law Offices / John R. Klein, MD, JD) who is currently working remotely from here in Omaha on a lengthy medical-legal case with a large Washington, DC law firm.  My home office is located in Midtown, Omaha, just southeast of 72nd and Blondo, and I’m currently seeking two people for ongoing projects on a flexible and part-time basis for an array of overdue tasks that I need to get done.  
 
I need one person to assist with general law office projects and another to assist with general outdoors projects.
 
I work a lot of hours myself and always seem to be backlogged on a variety of office and outdoor project matters.  So there are two separate project areas here:
 
1) On the law office projects end, tasks would include such items as organizing paperwork, internet-based research, drafting routine correspondence, following up with various routine business-related phone calls, etc.  Some of these could be done from your home on a remote basis, depending on the context of the project.  A comfortable, individual workspace for onsite-only projects would be provided, with its own outside entrance and separate from my own work area, so with office projects I’m definitely seeking a candidate who can work fully independently as soon as the agenda is set.
 
2) On the outdoor projects front, you could expect projects (none are particularly strenuous) such organizing storage space, planting small trees, small exterior painting projects (picnic table, etc.), and and some other minor garden / yard work (no mowing– that’s my department!), etc.  I can assure you there is plenty to do and when in doubt I can always find more — all I ask is that you put in reasonable effort and forge ahead.
 
Expectations as to project hours are super-flexible from roughly 6 to 15 hours per week (1 or 2 projects per week for 4 to 8 hours each), with ample scheduling accommodation for academic or other extracurricular commitments — None of these projects are “on fire,” yet there are plenty of them,  I’ll assume many candidates might prefer weekend projects, but the option for weekday after-school project hours is equally available.  Your call on that.  
 
You should consider both project areas (office or outdoors) to be casual, independently-focused, and part-time in a low-stress and flexible-hours environment, yet with an expectation for attention to detail.  Availability of weekly project hours may vary.  Potential to hire additional candidates, depending on ongoing, new, and/or seasonal requirements.  
 
Preferred candidates will have a solid work ethic, a friendly and positive outlook, be open to listening to and following the project plans, and be able to work independently and diligently with very minimal (and often zero) supervision.  Prior project background is not particularly important, but any relevant skills or experience should be raised.  Strong verbal and written communication skills are a big plus with respect to office projects.
 
Pay is $14.00 per hour for both project types.  All candidates are free to put themselves forward for either or both project areas.  In cases of a candidate for both project types, versatility and flexibility would be especially important.  No need for a resume here, but if you happen to have one, feel free to pass it along.
 
If interested in either or both project types, please call John Klein at 402-391-1871, or email kleinlawoffices@gmail.com, to arrange an initial phone interview.  Thanks!
