Mrs. Akers previously served as the Library Media Specialist at Glasscock and the Interim Assistant Principal at Marion County High School the spring semester of the 2013-14 school year.

Preparing for Upcoming Weather Conditions

Marion County Public Schools would like to offer this friendly reminder that forecasted temperatures this week will be dipping into the negative degrees. While our buses and schools will be warm, students waiting for buses should remember to dress for the cold. The best approach is layering clothing (coat or jacket, sweatshirt or sweater, etc.), plus head and hand coverings. Please do not allow children to leave the house with exposed skin (ears, hands, legs, etc.), as this increases the chance of frostbite in cold weather. Working together we can beat the cold this winter season!

Book Club!!!

Our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders have been invited to participate in an after school book club with Ms. Amanda Morgeson from the Marion County Public Library.  The students have to sign up to participate in the book club.  Our current book club book is "The One and Only Ivan."

Winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal and a #1 New York Times bestseller, this stirring and unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendships. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated novel is told from the point-of-view of Ivan himself.

Having spent 27 years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.
