K-4 programs will be in the school gymnasium on Thursday, Dec. 13.

Here's a look at the grade-by-grade schedule:

Via Credit Union and Marion Community Schools operate a cooperative educational program, a Student Operated Branch. The mission of the cooperative is to help students learn about money and to establish money management skills.

The Student Operated Branch is open every Wednesday morning prior to school and accepts deposits only. As an incentive to save at their school, each time a student makes a deposit their name is placed into a weekly and monthly drawing.

During October, students who make a deposit can spin the prize wheel for school supplies!

Mr. Larry Norris is joining the team at Kendall Elementary School for the remainder of the school year. His main focus will be on providing additional support to Principal Grafton, to teachers and staff, and to families.
