MARK YOUR CALENDAR: All-City Art Show 2015

Posted on Apr. 02 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Where can you view spectacular art, support young artists, and even try your hand at various art techniques? At Marion Community Schools’ upcoming All-City Art Show!

You don’t need to travel far to be inspired this spring. At the All-City Art Show, set for 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, May 1, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 2, at Marion High School’s F. Ritchie Walton Performing Arts Center, creative works from students of all ages will be on display, and visitors will have the chance to participate in several interactive art activities:
  • Pottery wheels: Art students will help guide visitors through the experience of experience working with clay.
  • Digital art: Use special tablet computers to create drawings.
  • Magnetic sculpture: Science and art meet as you manipulate materials to create your own sculpture.
  • Be a part of the art: Take a turn in our photo booth and see what the famed painting “American Gothic” looks like with you in the picture.
  • Instagram challenge: Take photos and share them with the world!

Marion Community Schools’ art programs have consistently offered students outstanding opportunities, and in the last few years several students have had their works chosen for regional, state, and even national competitions, including the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Symphony in Color awards and the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Our art programs culminate with a wide array of courses at Marion High School, including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography, and more.

At the All-City Art Show, visitors will get the chance to see creativity in action — and take some inspiration home with them, too. There will be a silent auction fundraiser of art items created or donated by MCS art teachers.

Art awards for all ages (judged by MCS art teachers) will be announced at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

VIDEO SLIDESHOW: Grant County Spelling Bee 2015

Posted on Mar. 24 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
More than 70 Grant County students, including several Marion Community Schools students, competed recently for the title of the county's top speller and the right to continue on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., in May.

Check out some of the scenes from the Bee here:

Half of the spellers made it out of the first round, but only five spellers made it to Round 3. (That means that technically, according to the Scripps National Spelling Bee rules, 32 students tied for sixth place in the 2015 Grant County Spelling Bee!)

The top Marion Community Schools speller was Carynna Aguila, a sixth-grader at Justice Intermediate School. She claimed fourth place. (She was runner up in the 2014 Grant County Spelling Bee.)

Jenna King, an Eastbrook Junior High School student, was the top speller, and she will continue on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., May 24-29.

We congratulate all of the spellers, who earned a spot in the county bee by excelling in their school spelling bees. And we wish Jenna good luck at nationals!
