From the Chronicle-Tribune
Grant County elementary and middle school students were able to take charge and try to make a difference to the community or their schools.
On Monday, one student from every elementary and middle school in the county was able to apply for a grant at the Community Foundation of Grant County’s bi-annual “Youth Grant Program,” which provided $5,750 for distribution.
The program allows students to write and request a grant for a maximum of $350 and deliver a presentation about how the money would be used. After all the presentations, the students voted as a governing body and placed ballots of how much each proposal should receive.

On the heels of research into the changing nature of kindergarten and its increasingly academic focus in recent years, the Chronicle-Tribune
explores local school districts' practices and views on kindergarten readiness.
“Kindergarten has changed a lot over the last few decades,” Brenda McVicker, Marion Community Schools director of elementary education, told the C-T
. “It’s very difficult today, it’s much more rigorous. A lot of your kindergarten teachers will tell you it’s the new first grade.”
