May 8-13, 2023 Marysville Jr/Sr High School
I thought I would share the blurb I wrote to seniors last week as part of their agenda for the coming week...this will make sure the seniors have one more chance to read it:
Dear Class of 2023,
I have said this from the beginning of this year: I consider myself lucky to have you as my inaugural senior class in my first year as MJSHS Principal. I am so proud of all of your accomplishments and know you will all go on to do great things. Remember, “Once a Bulldog, Always a Bulldog.” You will always be a part of the Bulldog family and are welcome back at any time. Also please know that everyone here at Marysville Junior Senior High School is here to support you after you leave. Don’t hesitate to call if you need anything or have any questions. Thanks for being All In, All Bulldog this year. You’ve made it one I will always remember.
Good luck in all that you do!
For everyone else, let's make the next two weeks awesome!
Tim Woodcock, Principal

2023 County Government Day
County Government Day proved to be eye-opening for Marysville & Axtell Seniors. Not only did they get to interact with all departments in the county courthouse, but they also got to take part in a mock trial. The seniors then were able to be in the gallery for an actual legal proceeding that happened to be scheduled for the time they were there. Thanks to County Attorney Lippert & Judge Hecke for allowing this to happen. Also a big thanks to Bill Phillipi, Jim Swim, and Sandy Wilson for their work in putting the day together!
