Students organize donation drive to help kids at MGH

Posted on May. 18 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Two Justice Intermediate students are looking for help to make a difference in the lives of local children who are sick and in the hospital.

Isabelle Bento and Shelby Harrison have started a donation drive, and they hope their fellow Justice students and the school staff will consider helping. They're collecting coloring books, crayons (24-count or less), and kid-friendly movies, which will be donated to Marion General Hospital's pediatrics department. (When Isabelle and Shelby contacted MGH, the folks there suggested these as a great gift that is in high demand at the hospital!)

The two have coordinated a competition between all first-period classes at the school, and at Little Giants Preschool, housed within the Justice building. One winning class from each grade (fifth and sixth) will be awarded with a donut party on the last day of school (Tuesday, May 26). If a preschool class collects more items than the fifth or sixth grade classes, they will get a donut party too. Donations will be collected Thursday, May 14, through Friday, May 22.

We are impressed with the initiative taken by these two students to help those dealing with difficult circumstances, and we're happy to help!

2015-16 MCS meal prices set

Posted on May. 18 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
The Marion Community Schools Board on Wednesday, May 13, approved school meal prices for the 2015-16 school year.

The choice to raise meal prices is not one that is taken lightly. The price increases for next school year are as minimal as possible and reflect added costs the school system expects to incur. Even with the increases, MCS meal prices remain below the goal pricing levels as determined by the Indiana Department of Education.

Breakfast:
  • Paid, students K-12: $1 (10 cent increase from 2014-15)
  • Reduced-price, for qualifying students K-12: 30 cents (no change from 2014-15)
  • Adults: $1.55 (10 cent increase from 2014-15)
Lunch:
  • Paid, students K-4: $1.60 (10 cent increase from 2014-15)
  • Paid, students 5-8: $1.80 (10 cent increase from 2014-15)
  • Paid, students 9-12: $1.90 (10 cent increase from 2014-15)
  • Reduced-price, for qualifying students K-12: 40 cents (no change from 2014-15)
  • Adults: $3.30 (80 cent increase from 2014-15; mandated minimum price by IDOE)
A la carte milk will be 40 cents apiece (a 10 cent increase from 2014-15).

The online payment transaction fee will be cut to $2 per transaction (a 40 cent reduction from 2014-15).
