All schools participate in the creation of the Kindness Chains throughout the year, but each school also has various other ways of recognizing and encouraging students and staff who display kindness and have an impact on others. At some schools, this includes cards or other rewards given for specific acts of kindness. At others, it involves recognition in a bulletin board display. The Student Kindness Awards are a natural outgrowth of this recognition process. One student from each building is selected by their administrators. We believe that simple acts of kindness have the power to change our classrooms, our schools, our community, and the world. Because of that, we truly believe the Student Kindness Awards are some of the highest honors we can bestow.
Marion Community Schools is proud of our students and staff who are starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion and making positive changes in our schools and community. We hope that students of all ages and their families, along with community members, will come and help us celebrate at the Kindness Rally!
The Marion High School Speech and Drama Association is bringing the modern musical “Disney’s High School Musical” to local audiences later this month. This is a fun, family-friendly show that you won’t want to miss!
MHS students will bring Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical to life on stage at the Walton Performing Arts Center, as Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High deal with issues of first love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities.
Show times are at 7:30 on Thursday, April 27, and Saturday, April 29. Tickets are general admission, and $8 for adults, $5 for children/students.
Disney's High School Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com.

Marion Community Schools invites families of children who will be starting kindergarten next school year to come visit their elementary schools and get a head start on the registration process at Kindergarten Roundup, set for Thursday, April 13.
Families can attend one of two sessions set that day, at 1:30 p.m. or 6 p.m.
Children who will be 5 years old on or before Aug. 1, 2017, can attend kindergarten in the 2017-18 school year.
The informational sessions will be offered at every MCS elementary school:
- Allen Elementary School, 1115 E. Bradford St.
- Frances Slocum Elementary School, 2909 S. Torrence St.
- Kendall Elementary School, 2009 W. Kem Road
- Riverview Elementary School, 513 W. Buckingham Drive
We hope to see all families of incoming kindergartners at this event that is just for them! It's a great way to help your future kindergartner get an introduction to the school building and staff. It's a low-pressure, informative session that's meant to specifically meet the needs of families with incoming kindergartners and their families.
What you need to bring: We ask that you bring proof of residence (like a utility bill with your name and address on it) if possible, so we can make sure you're at the right school. We also ask that you bring a copy of your kindergartner-to-be's birth certificate. You'll be beginning the registration process at Kindergarten Roundup, so we need that official document to certify your child is eligible for kindergarten. (If you cannot bring a copy of the birth certificate on this day, we can still begin the registration process, but we'll need you to follow up with us and provide that document before we can complete the registration process.)
For more information, call 765-662-2546, ext. 132.
