SENIOR SPOTLIGHT 2020
Presenting Alyssa T.
Plans after graduation: Alyssa will attend Central Michigan University in the fall to gain a degree in athletic training .
What she misses most about high school: "I miss how close our community is and how supportive the faculty are. When you join a sports team it turns into a family and everyone continues to build each other up. I am really going to miss everyone and I thank them for helping me grow into the person I am today."
Kindergarten is rocking some math!
Joseph, Jackson, Silas, and Liliana worked hard this week to add to our total of 2,5000 IXL math questions answered, according to Mrs. Henderson!
Way to go!

Dear Marion Elementary Parents:
After reflecting on some parent and teacher communications, our district is making some changes to our plan to distribute learning "packets" and/or chromebooks that remain on campus.
We are asking for your help, if you are able. On Thursday, from 11 a.m - 6 p.m, a handful of staff will be present at the elementary to help distribute learning materials and chromebooks. We are hoping as many parents as possible can visit campus to pick up materials on Thursday. Some of our staff feel it will be more efficient to pass out materials in this manner. Likewise, they will be able to provide information that will be helpful to parents in terms of using the materials at home.
After Thursday, if you still need to pick up materials, please email your child's teacher directly. Please explain how we can best serve you in terms of getting you the materials. Your options include: (1) setting up a pickup time and date to come to campus for pick-up, (2) indicating that you will pick materials up from one of our other four lunch distribution sites: (Redding Township Hall, Dighton Store, Middlebranch Township Hall, and Winterfield Township Hall - just tell us which one, please). If this is not possible, please let us know, and we can (3) arrange for a bus to deliver things to your driveway. Again, please let us know the address and the days you need delivery. Here is a link to staff email: https://www.marion.k12.mi.us/o/mps/staff
. If you require immediate help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
. The main district line is (231) 743-2486 extension 1.
Thank you for your help in this important manner. After this disbursement of materials, the district will be providing future communication regarding how to submit returned student work and outlining the process for future "batches" of work being sent home. All homework questions should be emailed to your child's teacher. Please indicate a good phone number to reach you back.
We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.
