Friendly school vs. school competition will benefit our neighbors in need

Two Marion Community Schools elementaries are having a friendly competition to benefit neighbors in need.

Frances Slocum and Allen elementary schools are having family Valentine’s dances next week, and admission will be a canned or shelf-stable food item, to be donated to local food pantries. The schools are competing to see who can bring in the most donations.

The dances are set as follows:
  • Frances Slocum Elementary, Wednesday, Feb. 12, 5 – 6:30 p.m.
  • Allen Elementary, Thursday, Feb. 13, 5 – 6:30 p.m.
“It’s a small token of appreciation for all that the community does for Marion Community Schools,” said district Family Support Specialist Staici Batchelor. “It’s a night we stop and give back.”

We hope to see all our Frances Slocum and Allen families out at this fun event!
