2. The book fair will be open that night and throughout the week during the day! October 29th-November 2nd. Be sure to check it out!! If you are able to volunteer, let us know or call the office!

3. We are asking for candy donations for the trick or treating event. If you are able to donate some bags of individually packaged candy, please take them to the office. Thank you so much for your support!

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 is open every Wednesday morning prior to school and accepts deposits only. As an incentive to save at their school, each time a student makes a deposit their name is placed into a weekly and monthly drawing.

During October, students who make a deposit can spin the prize wheel for school supplies!

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.
