9 Weeks #together

It is hard to believe that we are already 9 weeks into this school year. Thank you for such a smooth transition into a new year. We truly are better #together. With your help we have cut our dismissal time down from 35 minutes to about 15 minutes! The kinks have been worked out and our Learning Lab time is off and running, this gives your student at least once a day where they are working in a small group, at their level, on a topic they need extra help on. Our teachers and staff are working hard to help every student make Giant growth this year. Thank you for choosing to be Giants!

Via News

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!

If you would like for your child to start saving at the Kendall Student Branch, please complete a permission slip and return it along with their initial deposit. Permission slips will be sent home but are also available in the school office.
