Mark your calendar now for the third annual Marion Community Schools Kindness Rally on Friday, May 1, 5:30- 8:30 p.m.! 

This event is open to the entire community, and we hope YOU will join us as we celebrate kindness and the impact it can have on the people around us, our classrooms, our schools, our community, and our world!

Highlights will include the Chain Reaction ceremony; the annual Student Kindness Awards; performances by several student groups; the Kindness Chains display (where representatives from each school march in with paper chains with each link representing an act of kindness noticed throughout the school year); and a carnival with bounce houses, photo booth, food, and more!

Come out and celebrate kindness and the difference it can make in our community!

News Blog Category - News Due to the cancellation of classes on March 3 because of ice, the last day for students will now be on Tuesday, May 26. Please make a note on your calendars!

(Monday, May 25, is Memorial Day, so there will be no classes that day.)

This is the fifth make-up day added to the year due to weather-related closures. Any more cancellations will result in more days being added to the end of the school year. We will continue to advise families if more make-up days are needed.

News Blog Category - News The Little Giants Preschool recently invited family members in to see what our youngest students have been learning lately.



It was an exciting day for students and their families, as well as Little Giants Preschool staff. The event fell on Friday, Feb. 13, so of course after our students showed off their knowledge and skills, we had a fun Valentines Day party!
