News Blog Category - News Dozens of Marion High School JROTC cadets gathered Tuesday to raise money for ALS research, part of the ongoing ALS Ice Bucket Challenge fueling awareness and donations for the cause.


 
Community service is one of the tenets of the JROTC program, and cadets undertake several projects every year to help those in need and improve our community. Just under $100 was raised at the event at Marion High School, to be given to the ALS Association.

New challenge issued!

In keeping with the campaign, the cadets challenged the JROTC organizations at nearby Blackford High School and Warsaw Community High School to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge themselves.

News Blog Category - News The annual Fly/In Cruise/In car and air show is coming up soon at the Marion Municipal Airport, and with it comes the Marching Giants' all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. Come on out to the airport and support our musicians as they head back into competition season for the first time in several years!

Check out this WIWU "Crossroads" feature from last year's Fly/In Cruise/In for a taste of what's in store:

 
The pancake breakfast this year is set for 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 30. Tickets are $5 in advance, available from any MHS band member, or at the airport, 5904 S. Western Ave., or at the Bright House Networks Marion office, 2923 S. Western Ave. Tickets at the door are $8 for adults, $3 for kids 8 and younger.

There is no admission charge to the show itself, which runs until 2 p.m.

The show this year will feature classic cars and other vintage vehicles, along with dozens of aircraft. The special feature this year is the C-54 "Spirit of Freedom", a flying museum with displays about the Berlin Airlift, a major global response in the late 1940s to one of the first major international crises of the Cold War. The "Spirit of Freedom" is part of the Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation. Click here to learn more about the organization. 

Also featured will be helicopter rides for an additional cost. Click here to learn more.

Don't miss this unique local event that has supported our band program for many years!

News Blog Category - News Online registration for all MCS schools for the 2014-15 school year is ongoing.


In addition, summer registration days are coming up later this month.

Families with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year can register their students online.

The online registration process can be completed at any Internet-connected computer (including the public stations available at Marion Public Library). However, computer/Internet access and staff assistance will be available during our summer registration days, set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 22 and 23 at McCulloch Junior High School, 3528 S. Washington St. (Because construction projects scheduled this summer throughout the district will restrict visitor traffic, there will be one registration location for all student registration. Staff from all school buildings will be available at registration at McCulloch.)

Those with students who are new to MCS should plan to attend our in-school registration days to provide needed documentation and information, including proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill with your name and address), and the name and contact information for the school your student most recently attended, along with any health/allergy information.

Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid online as part of the registration process, or at the summer registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).
