Due to continued uncertainty and concern surrounding coronavirus / COVID-19, Marion Community Schools has decided to cancel our annual Kindness Rally that had been set for April 3.

The monetary costs associated with waiting any longer to make this decision, with deposits for rented equipment due soon, was one of the factors in our decision in making this announcement now.

Because of the school closure on Feb. 27, 2020, due to poor road conditions caused by snow and ice, a make-up day will be added to the end of the school year. 

The last student day is now set for May 26, 2020. (May 25 is Memorial Day, so there will be no school that day.)

(This is the third closure of the year; the first coming on Nov. 19, 2019, for the Red for Public Ed rally, and the second on Feb. 6, 2020 due to weather and road conditions.)

We are so excited to partner with The River Church and Kendall PTO to host our second annual Special Persons Dinner!

This is a chance for our students to invite someone special to eat dinner with them at Kendall Elementary. A special person can be anyone who has had an impact on that student's life, from a family member or guardian, to a friend, a mentor, a teacher, a coach, etc. We want to celebrate our students and the people in their life who are important to them!

This year's Special Persons Dinner will be on Feb. 28. You must RSVP by Feb. 14!
