The Kindness Rally is set for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 25, 2014, at the Marion High School gym. Features will include bounce houses, an obstacle course, dunk tank (where principals and other administrators will take the plunge), food, and more.

Tickets to be used for the carnival attractions will be four for $1, and proceeds will fund continuing anti-bullying efforts throughout the school system. The Marion High School FOR TAXII Club (Friends of Rachel / Teens Against Xtreme Inappropriate Interactions), which helps organize and run the Kindness Rally, will also be selling T-shirts and bracelets as a fundraiser.

Doors will open and ticket sales will begin at 5:30 p.m.

The Chain Reaction Ceremony is set for 6 p.m. The ceremony will feature the MHS JROTC presenting the flag, along with performances by the MHS and McCulloch Junior High School choirs, the MHS band, presentation of Student Kindness Awards and messages from district administrators. Students from each school will also participate in the parade of kindness chains from each school, with each link in the chains representing a kind act noticed this school year.


Marion Community Schools is proud of our students and staff who are starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion and making positive changes in our schools and community. We hope that students of all ages and their families, along with community members, will come and help us celebrate at the second annual Kindness Rally!

Rumors of lockdown at McCulloch untrue

Posted on Apr. 11 2014 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Questions have arisen over rumors of a threat made at McCulloch on Thursday, April 10, 2014. Administrators investigated immediately, and a student was suspended. Measures have been taken to make sure that there is no threat to the safety of the students at McCulloch today, Friday, April 11, 2014. We do have one of our school security officers on hand today at the building. At no time did we believe students and staff were in danger. We are committed to a safe and healthy learning environment and would not bring students or staff into a situation we believed to be unsafe.

McCulloch is in normal security mode today, with all doors locked and the buzz-in and visitor badge system in place, as it is every day. The building is NOT in elevated lockdown mode. There is no reason to believe the safety of students and staff is in any way threatened.

As always, we ask anyone who knows anything that threatens the safety of our students or schools to contact school or district administrators. Our anonymous student/school safety hotline is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call or text 765-997-8585 or email hotline@marion.k12.in.us.

Homework Hotline offers help with math, science
