The Giants are headed back to semi-state! Let's show off our Giant Pride on Friday!

For the third time this school year, a Marion High School team is headed to semi-state in the IHSAA's state tournaments. (The football team and girls basketball team were the first and second.)

Marion Community Schools encourages businesses and organizations around the city to join us as we celebrate Purple & Gold Friday, in honor of the Giants.

The public is also invited to join in a pep rally for the team on Friday at 3:30 p.m. on Friday at Bill Green Arena (and to help us send the team off at 1:30 p.m. Saturday).

News Blog Category - News Next month, the seventh annual Marion Community Schools Kindness Rally will celebrate the power that kindness has to change our schools, our community, and the world! This event is open to the entire community, and we hope YOU will join us!

Highlights will include the Chain Reaction Ceremony; the annual Student Kindness Awards and Staff Kindness Awards; the Kindness Chain Parade (where representatives from each school march in with paper chains, with each link representing an act of kindness noticed throughout the school year); and a carnival with bounce houses, games, a photo booth, food, and more!

The Kindness Rally is set for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 19, 2019, at the Marion High School gym. Tickets to be used for the carnival attractions can be purchased from any Marion PK-8 school office in advance for five for a $1, and will be available at the door for four for $1; proceeds will fund continuing anti-bullying efforts throughout the school system.

The Chain Reaction Ceremony is set for 5:30 p.m. (Doors open at 5 p.m.) The ceremony will feature:
  • MHS JROTC presenting the flag.
  • Performances by school music groups.
  • Presentation of Student Kindness Awards, which honor one student from each school who embodies the spirit and kindness and who consistently exhibits it to those around them.
  • Messages from district administrators.
  • The Kindness Chain Parade.
The carnival will begin immediately after the ceremony.

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 and Staff Kindness Awards are a natural outgrowth of this recognition process. One student and one staff member 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 and 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!

Your student will receive a manila envelope with information and order forms inside very soon. Please keep an eye out for this to be in your child’s backpack.

We suggest that students do NOT go door-to-door to sell. The top two sellers per grade level will get a limo ride to Domino’s Pizza for lunch!
