Marion students competed with teams from a dozen schools from around East Central Indiana in the Academic Super Bowl invitational at Delta Middle School in Muncie on April 6, 2017. Academic Super Bowl competitions at the junior level consist of four subject matter rounds (English, science, social studies, and math) and a fifth interdisciplinary round. Each year a theme is selected, and questions at the competitions center around that topic. This year’s topic is “The French Revolution”.
The Giants earned first place in English, science, and the interdisciplinary round. They were also among the top teams in social studies (second place) and math (fourth place). With this excellent performance, they earned the title of overall points winner as well.
The students who competed April 6 are: Carynna Aguila, Soren Bruehler, Mia De las Alas, Evelyn Detamore, Savannah Fry, Jaron Hofmann, Halen Munday, Vikram Oddiraju, Annika Sharlow, and Marisa Wallace. Coaches are Mike Halliwell (English/social studies), Brooke Detamore (science), and Alex Hornett (math).
Next up, the McCulloch team will compete in the state competition, set for April 29. McCulloch Junior High School and Marion Community Schools offer their congratulations to these outstanding students and their coaches, and wish them good luck at the state level!
The Academic Super Bowl competition is offered by the Indiana Association of School Principals. The IASP offers academic competitions to honor intellectual achievement, showcase students, and give their families an opportunity for involvement.

Marion Community Schools invites families of children who will be starting kindergarten next school year to come visit their elementary schools and get a head start on the registration process at Kindergarten Roundup, set for Thursday, April 13.
Families can attend one of two sessions set that day, at 1:30 p.m. or 6 p.m.
Children who will be 5 years old on or before Aug. 1, 2017, can attend kindergarten in the 2017-18 school year.
The informational sessions will be offered at every MCS elementary school:
- Allen Elementary School, 1115 E. Bradford St.
- Frances Slocum Elementary School, 2909 S. Torrence St.
- Kendall Elementary School, 2009 W. Kem Road
- Riverview Elementary School, 513 W. Buckingham Drive
We hope to see all families of incoming kindergartners at this event that is just for them! It's a great way to help your future kindergartner get an introduction to the school building and staff. It's a low-pressure, informative session that's meant to specifically meet the needs of families with incoming kindergartners and their families.
What you need to bring: We ask that you bring proof of residence (like a utility bill with your name and address on it) if possible, so we can make sure you're at the right school. We also ask that you bring a copy of your kindergartner-to-be's birth certificate. You'll be beginning the registration process at Kindergarten Roundup, so we need that official document to certify your child is eligible for kindergarten. (If you cannot bring a copy of the birth certificate on this day, we can still begin the registration process, but we'll need you to follow up with us and provide that document before we can complete the registration process.)
For more information, call 765-662-2546, ext. 132.

The formal inspection included briefings led by cadets, portfolio reviews, evaluations of the color guard and drill team, an in-ranks inspection, and a conversation with Marion High School’s principal and Marion Community Schools’ superintendent.
“This is one of the most outstanding JROTC units I have ever inspected in 20 years,” said Lee Redmon, from the U.S. Army 7th Brigade Headquarters, after the inspection on Wednesday, March 15.
The 7th Brigade region includes Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
Marion High School and Marion Community Schools are proud of this program and the opportunities it offers to local students. JROTC is a leadership program designed to motivate young people to become better citizens. Studies show that JROTC helps students get better grades, be more active in school, and perform better on tests, and it decreases disciplinary problems.
Though JROTC is a military-regulated program, participation does not require future plans for military service. Cadets who do choose a military career can get important benefits from their JROTC participation, but the JROTC program offers important lessons that can benefit cadets in all areas of life, including self-discipline, teamwork, leadership skills, and more.
The MHS JROTC program also has established great community connections and partnerships, working together with various local and regional partners on events such as the annual Field Day at Matter Park, along with service projects at the Marion VA Health Center, Marion parks, and more.
The MHS JROTC program is open to anyone of high school age in Grant County. Anyone interested in becoming a cadet in the JROTC program will need to work with the guidance department here at MHS and at their home high school to arrange their schedule appropriately. For more information, contact MHS at 664-9051.
The public is invited to MHS to the shows, which will feature “The Zula Patrol: Under the Weather”; “The Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth’s Climate Engine”; and a review of events coming up in the local night sky this spring and summer. Showings are scheduled for 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, April 1, and Sunday, April 2.
Admission is free, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-seated basis on the day of the show. Doors will open about 30 minutes before each showing. Enter MHS through Door 22 at the front of the building. MHS is located at 750 W. 26th St.
In addition, the MHS Green Society will be selling concessions at these shows. Proceeds help fund recycling efforts at MHS.
This is a great opportunity for a special experience with the family, right here in Marion!
The planetarium at MHS was renovated in fall 2012. It boasts state-of-the-art LED cove lighting; 5.1 surround sound system with JBL cinema series speakers that push 2400 watts of power; a Digitarium Kappa projector that broadcasts full dome shows; and seating for 58.
Marion Community Schools is pleased to be able to present this special show to the public and share our exceptional facilities with the community in this way.
