Any family with a student new to MCS should attend onsite registration, which is set from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 23 and 24 at Marion High School. (Registration for all grades will be at that location. Staff from all school buildings will be available on those days at Marion High School.) Families can come at their convenience any time during those hours.

Please enter at Door 4 on the 26th Street side of the building. Parking is available in the parking lot on the east side of the building. Please do not park in the circle off 26th Street. 

Those with students who are new to MCS (including kindergartners) should plan to attend our onsite registration days to provide needed documentation and information, including proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill with your name and address), and the name and contact information for the school your student most recently attended, along with any health/allergy information.

Any MCS family is also welcome to attend onsite registration, but is encouraged to use the online registration option if possible. Online registration is already open; click here for instructions.

Any family with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year, including Little Giants Preschool students who will be in kindergarten this year, as well as any families who attended Kindergarten Roundup in the spring, can use the online registration system.

(Computer access and assistance with passwords or other issues will be available at Marion High School during onsite registration days.)

Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid online as part of the registration process, or at the onsite registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).

Dixon named new principal for Riverview Elementary

News Blog Category - News Marion Community Schools is pleased to announce that Ashlee Dixon is stepping into the role of principal at Riverview Elementary School.

Dixon has served as assistant principal at Riverview Elementary for three years, under the outstanding leadership of Lendon Schwartz.

"In the six years I have known Ashlee Dixon, as a teacher and then as assistant principal at Riverview, I have appreciated her positive, all-win commitment to our students, families, and staff, and to our Marion Community Schools mission," MCS Superintendent Brad Lindsay said.

Dixon, a Marion High School graduate, started as a professional educator at MCS in 2011, and served in teacher and leadership roles at various Marion school buildings before moving into the assistant principal role at Riverview in 2016. Her new assignment as principal was approved by the Marion School Board at its July 9 regular meeting.

"I'm excited to carry on the culture that Mr. Schwartz and I, along with our Riverview staff and families, have created for our students. It is a pleasure to have learned from someone who truly loves our kids and wants the best for them," Dixon said. "I look forward to working with our students, families and educators to make this the best school year yet. Not only am I a Giant by choice, but it's in my blood! Giants fight, never die. I am proud to be part of the Giant family and to raise my own kids in this community that is full of opportunities through Marion Community Schools."

Dixon will immediately step into this role and help provide a smooth transition.

"Ashlee has built positive relationships with staff, students, and families at Riverview Elementary, and she is actively invested in the community of Marion," Lindsay said. "Throughout the last three years she has learned and grown significantly as assistant principal under the outstanding mentorship of Principal Lendon Schwartz. Principal Dixon is ready to take the leadership baton and continue the upward climb at Riverview, which has consistently been an Indiana Department of Education A-rated school."

Marion Community Schools is grateful to Lendon Schwartz for his time and dedication to Riverview Elementary over the past several years, and for building a foundation and culture of high expectations and motivation for success. We look forward to a bright future with Principal Dixon! We believe our best is yet to come for Riverview Elementary and Marion Community Schools.
