Posted on Dec. 02 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News Our next PTO meeting will be at 2:45 p.m. Monday, Dec. 12. The meeting will last 30 to 45 minutes, and then we will be decorating the gym for the Christmas programs — just stay for as long as you can! Children are welcome!

We will not be holding a Colts Cash store in December because it is a short month of school days. Our next one will be on Friday, Jan. 13. Continue to encourage your children to earn colts cash by being respectful, responsible and safe!

We love our Kendall Giants!

Winter Magic in the Gardens to feature MCS singers (12/3)

Posted on Dec. 01 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News This weekend, singers from Marion elementaries and McCulloch Junior High will be spreading holiday cheer at a special event, Winter Magic in the Gardens of Matter Park.

Saturday, Dec. 3, will be a day full of fun at the Gardens!

Families and groups are invited to come help decorate trees at the Gardens. (Click here to register for your tree.) From noon to 4 p.m., participants can help make decorations from noon to 4 p.m. at the Garden House, and/or bring some of their own decorations for their tree. Decorations should be environmentally friendly and bird-friendly (think popcorn, acorns, berries, pinecones … ).

>> Then, at 6 p.m., a tree lighting ceremony is planned, and singers from Marion Community Schools will be caroling at that time.

After the tree lighting, you can explore the gardens and enjoy the decorated trees, as well as hot chocolate and a bonfire in the meadow area.

The public is invited to this free event. Come out and explore the Gardens and enjoy a performance by some of our talented young singers!

News Blog Category - News Via Credit Union and Marion Community Schools operate a cooperative educational program, a Student Operated Branch. The mission of the cooperative is to help students learn about money and to establish money management skills.

The Student Operated Branch at Kendall Elementary is open every Wednesday morning before school and accepts deposits only. As an incentive to save, during December, students who make a deposit of at least $5 before winter break will get a Little Debbie snack cake!

If you would like for your child to start saving at the Kendall Student Branch, please complete a permission slip and return it along with their initial deposit. Permission slips will be sent home, but are also available in the school office.

Thank to Via Credit Union for this fabulous and continuous community partnership!
