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 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.

Kendall's Student VIA Branch opens Sept. 21.

The Grant County Special Education Cooperative invites families to its annual kickoff picnic.

The event is set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Garden House at Matter Park.

Pizza and refreshments will be provided, and you'll also get the chance to talk with families while your child interacts with others. Children can play at the nearby Friendship Corner accessible playground, and the butterfly garden.

Michele Trivedi will join us from Indiana Resource Center for Autism. This year's topic is centered around autism and the way insurance companies handle the approvals of various resources and therapies. 

We hope to see you there! If you have questions, please call the Co-Op office at 677-4456, or contact Lisa Graham, MCS Special Services Director, by email at lgraham@marion.k12.in.us. (For more information about the MCS Special Services Department, check out our webpage here.)

News Blog Category - News The Marching Giants are inviting the whole community out to enjoy their full competition show for free this weekend here at the MHS!

MHS has the only competitive marching band in Grant County. You don't want to miss this opportunity to see their full show, "Batter Up," before they begin their competition season next week!

Normally, you would have to travel to another school and pay admission to see this show, or pay admission to an MHS home football game at which the Marching Giants were slated to perform.

But at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, you can see the full show for free right here at MHS's Dick Lootens Stadium! We hope to see you all there!

(In case of severe weather, an altered show may be performed inside. Watch for information on the MHS Bands Twitter and Facebook pages in that situation.)
