The visitors from the DOE were treated to performances from the McCulloch drumline and choir students, and they also visited several classrooms to see teachers and students in action. They also heard from school leaders about the great things going at McCulloch.

We are proud of Team McCulloch, all of our students, teachers, and staff. We are aiming for excellence every day and we aim to take full advantage of the opportunities the SIG funds give us to set McCulloch on the path to greatness!

McCulloch food drive helps those in need

Posted on Jan. 19 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
McCulloch Junior High students and staff recently conducted a food drive and donated several boxes full of canned goods to a local pantry.

We are grateful for the support of our community, and the food drive was organized by the school's TAP leadership team as a simple way to make a positive impact on the community. The canned goods were donated to Hanfield United Methodist Church's food pantry. According to Hanfield's website, visits to their food pantry in 2014 were up 42 percent from the previous year. Winter is a particularly difficult season for many, and we at McCulloch are happy to be able to be a part of the efforts that Hanfield makes to help those in need! 

Hanfield is a Kids Hope USA partner with Allen Elementary School and has a wide variety of support programs for both students and staff there, including the BEST Bags program. Marion Community Schools greatly appreciates the great support system Hanfield has created for our Allen families and staffers!

Two classes, Heather Maurer's and Christina Huff's first-period classes, tied for the most canned goods collected and were rewarded with a donut breakfast.

We're proud of our students for working to make a difference in others' lives!
