Giant Dreams Tour: Class of 2016 visits elementaries

Posted on May. 17 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
The Marion High School Class of 2016 visited our elementary schools on Tuesday, May 17, taking a "walk of fame" through the hallways dressed in their caps, gowns, honor cords, and other awards.



For many of the seniors, it was a homecoming. Alumni of each elementary school led the procession at their building, and there were plenty of hugs from former teachers and administrators to go around for the soon-to-be-graduates. 

For the elementary students, it was a glimpse into their own futures, a visual representation of a milestone they are all striving to reach: high school graduation. 

And for all involved, it was a reminder that each of us has someone, somewhere watching us, looking up to us, and being inspired by our choices, attitudes, and accomplishments. It's a good reminder for us all, and it was a great way to celebrate the Class of 2016!
 

Johnson, Palmer, Pence earn Mary Clark Hanley Teaching Excellence Award

Posted on May. 11 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Six teachers earned special recognition at the MCS School Board meeting on May 11, 2016, as this year’s nominees and recipients of the Mary Clark Hanley Teaching Excellence Award.


The nominees are an exclusive group that personifies excellence. They were selected by their respective principals or coordinators. The 2015-16 nominees are:
  • Ceola Friday, kindergarten teacher at Riverview Elementary School
  • Andrea Johnson, third-grade teacher at Frances Slocum Elementary School
  • Patricia Losure, teacher at Little Giants Preschool
  • Mary Miller, fifth-grade science teacher at Justice Intermediate School
  • Crystal Palmer, kindergarten teacher at Kendall Elementary School
  • Shelli Pence, first-grade teacher at Allen Elementary School
Johnson, Palmer, and Pence were chosen as the winners of the award. The winners were selected by the director of human resources, the district director of education, and an elementary principal, as requested by the Community Foundation.

Marion Community Schools congratulates all of these excellent teachers and thanks them for the work they do every day, and the difference it makes in our students' lives.

The Hanleys had the good fortune to be successful financially and wanted to give back to those individuals, communities, and institutions that have contributed over the years to their success. Mr. Hanley’s mother was certainly on that list, inspiring him educationally to be the best he could be, and that is why they named this award in her honor.

The award, set up in 2000 through the Community Foundation of Grant County to memorialize her name and her commitment to education and to promote excellence in teaching, is given annually to three outstanding elementary teachers in the MCS system, and this year included a prize of $500.

YOU'RE INVITED: Kick off summer with the Little Feet Meet

Posted on May. 05 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Marion Community Schools' Young Champions program invites families to kick off the summer season with us at the Little Feet Meet on Saturday, May 21, at the Marion High School sports complex!

This school year, MCS joined an exclusive group of schools across the state participating in Champions Together, an exciting partnership between the Indiana High School Athletic Association and Special Olympics, which offers students of all abilities the opportunity to participate in athletics together. Young Champions is a partner program that aims to help children explore physical activities and sports, and to develop skills for future participation in athletic training and competition. The Young Champions program promotes learning, achievement, and enjoyment of physical activity and athletics.

The Little Feet Meet is a fun-filled event for students in preschool through eighth grade and their families. Coming the day after school ends for MCS students, the Little Feet Meet is a great way to kick off an active summer! There will be five track event stations for participants, with kids separated by age, 3 to 7 and 8 to 14. There will also be lunch available (hot dogs, popcorn, water), goodie bags for participants, and other fun activities. 

The Little Feet Meet begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 21, at Dick Lootens Stadium at Marion High School, and it will run through noon.

Registration for this event has now been opened up to ALL Marion kids! Registration is required in advance, though there is no cost to participate. 


The registration deadline has been extended, but we are asking that you register your child as soon as possible if you wish to participate.

We hope to see you here! For more information, contact the MCS Special Services Department, 662-2546.
