MCS registration begins this month

Posted on Jun. 08 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Registration for the 2015-16 school year at Marion Community Schools will begin later this month.

Online registration is set to open on June 29. Families with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year can register their students online.  For more information, click here.

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 also be available during our on-site registration days, set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 21 and 22 at Marion High School, 750 W. 26th St. (This will be the location for registration for all MCS schools, K-12. Staff from all school buildings will be available on those days at Marion High School.) Parking is available along 26th Street and Carey Street on the west side of the building. For more information, click here. 

Those with students who are new to MCS should plan to attend our on-site 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 on-site registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).

A note for Tucker Career and Technology Center students: MHS students will register for TCTC classes during the regular registration process outlined above. However, TCTC has separate times set for county students who will attend in the fall: July 22 and 23, between 8 and 11 a.m. or 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. For more information, click here to visit the TCTC website.

More information about MCS enrollment is available in the “Enrollment” section of the MCS website.

A letter from McCulloch's new leader, Principal Morgan

Posted on May. 29 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Mrs. Dawn Morgan, who served as McCulloch Junior High School's assistant principal during the 2014-15 school year, was recently promoted to principal for the 2015-16 school year. Here is a letter from her to the McCulloch family:

Dear Bear Parents/Guardians,

I wanted to send out a brief letter of introduction before the upcoming 2015-16 school year.  My name is Dawn Morgan, and as of July 28th, I will be shifting my role at McCulloch Jr. High School from Assistant Principal to Principal.  It is an amazing honor to be named the principal in the first building where I ever had a classroom!

I began teaching at McCulloch (then a middle school of grades 6, 7, 8) in 2006.  I taught special education, specifically students with learning disabilities.  After two years at McCulloch, I moved to Marion High School where I taught in the same area for four years.  This move gave me the incredible opportunity to again work with students I had my first year of teaching and to keep many of them as "my kids" until their junior year of high school.

At the end of my fourth year of teaching, I moved into my first administrative role as an assistant principal.  My most recent year as an assistant principal was just completed at McCulloch Jr. High School, and I feel so fortunate to be returning there in a new role to an wonderful team of teachers and support staff and to your amazing children.  Our team is committed to your children and to our community.  We are looking forward to a great year with your student, and to building on the strong foundation that was laid during this school year to even better things for your child. 

I look forward to working with your child and with you in the upcoming school year.  I hope you all have an enjoyable summer!

Dawn Morgan
