VIDEOS: You get what you give, so give kindness!

Posted on Apr. 17 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
This week, as part of week four of the McCulloch Junior High Random Acts of Kindness Campaign, teachers shared this video with their students, and discussed how kindness can change the world, one act and one person at a time. 

We hope you'll view it too, and join that conversation. Take a look:

The kindness of a a fallen soldier's son ripples across the nation:




Another chain reaction, this time in the fast food drive-through lane!



Simple acts create a chain reaction of kindness!



Your "homework"
 
Do you have a family movie night? We've been talking this week about the concept of paying it forward. Maybe you and your family would like to consider watching the movie "Pay It Forward" and then continue the conversation!

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 16, 2015.

Families can attend one of two sessions set that day, at 1 p.m. or 6 p.m.

Children who will be 5 years old on or before Aug. 1, 2015, can attend kindergarten in the 2015-16 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

Families should attend the session at the school their child will attend when school starts, so that the student-to-be can start to become familiar with the building. Plan to bring your child's birth certificate and immunization records if you have them available. If not, please come to Roundup anyway! We just need those documents before your child starts school.

For more information, call 765-662-2546, ext. 132.
