Steele High School Newsletter
As we prepare for the end-of-the-year festivities, the faculty and staff at Marion L. Steele High School want to thank you all for your patience and partnership this school year. We ALL just went through a calendar year like no other and we could not have done it without the parent support we received from you.
We hope everyone has a great summer and we look forward to returning to "normal" as best we can as we head into the 2021-2022 school year!
