Marion Community Schools’ human resources director was recently honored by the Indiana Association of School Business Officials.

Human Resources Director Shelley Preston has been named the IASBO School Support Professional of the Year for Region 5, the district in which Grant County lies.

This May will be IASBOs 18th year presenting their annual award. Each year, IASBO recognizes school business official in each of its 10 regions with awards for Treasurer of the Year, School Business Official of the Year, and School Support Professional of the Year. Shelley Preston was the only representative from Grant County awarded for 2019.

We are proud of this recognition of Marion Community Schools and of Shelley Preston, who brings a wealth of experience to her role at MCS since she joined us six years ago. She has been an asset to our Giant team and we are grateful to Shelley for her service here.

Shelley Preston and the other IASBO honorees will be celebrated at the organization’s annual meeting in May.

YOU’RE INVITED: Genius Hour research fair at Frances Slocum

News Blog Category - News Are you smarter than a fourth-grader? Frances Slocum Elementary fourth-graders may know a few things you don’t after weeks of Genius Hour research. You’re invited to come out and hear what they’ve learned!

The Genius Hour research fair will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, March 22, in the school’s gym. Family and friends and any others interested are invited to attend.

Through Genius Hour — one hour out of one school day each week for nine weeks — fourth graders got to drill down deep into a topic that interested them, with student teachers helping to guide them through this project-based learning. Students took interest inventories, then the teachers helped them narrow those interests down to top choices, and students were then grouped based on that, in 15 groups of 3 to 5 students.

Genius Hour topics to be presented Friday include fashion, video games, the Civil War, robotics, magic, and more. Student groups will use various tools to present their findings, including video, PowerPoint, models, diagrams, and posters.

These students are proud of what they’ve learned and they’d love to share it with you!
