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!

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 … ).

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!
