Annual MCS holiday cards now available (orders due 11/23)

Posted on Nov. 17 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
It's that time of year again: The Marion Community Schools annual holiday cards are now available to order!

The artwork featured on the two cards was created by Marion Community Schools students, and the cards themselves will be printed by Tucker Career and Technology Center students at the print shop there.

If your family, organization, or business is looking for a holiday card with a local flair — and a local impact — make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to get your order in for these special cards! 

Each set of 20 cards and envelopes is $6.25. Proceeds from the sale of these cards go to help MCS students in need. We hope you'll consider purchasing. It's an easy way to brighten someone's day and make a real difference in our community!

Orders are due next Monday, Nov. 23. Please return your completed order form, along with check or cash, to Patty Barney in the district office at Marion High School, 750 W. 26th St. Our office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Cards will be available for pickup on Dec. 7.
