Dear Marceline R-V Community:
It has been a busy summer with many things happening throughout the school district. I want to update everyone on what is happening throughout the school district.
Summer School ended on June 23rd. Throughout the five weeks that summer school was in session, the students were provided with many hands-on learning opportunities and fun ways to go outside and enjoy the beginning of summer. Thanks to our A+ tutors, who provided great help throughout summer school. Our summer school contributes to our academic success throughout the regular school year.
Bond Issue Update
There has been a lot of progress being made on the bond issue projects. As projects come to completion, we plan to put out pictures for the community to see.
Safety Grant Projects
Over the next weeks and months, multiple School Safety Grant projects will be completed, including a new six-foot tall fence surrounding the ELC playground, more security cameras districtwide, and vaping detectors in multiple areas of the MS/HS.
The custodial staff has been working hard, waxing the floors, getting rooms ready, making repairs where needed, hanging new SmartBoards, and much more. I want to commend them for their hard work and dedication in preparing the district’s buildings for the start of the school year.
Electronic Sign Landscaping
I would like to thank Marceline High School 10th grader Cody Rodgers for his hard work on the landscaping surrounding the electronic sign on the West side of the high school. Cody did this as an Eagle Scout project; it looks great, and we appreciate it greatly.
Interactive Record Board
In the Field House lobby, for this school year, there will be an interactive record board that will give all patrons quick access to the activities records for MHS. This should be a great addition to our lobby area.
The first “Dead Week” ended on Sunday, July 9th. The next “Dead Week” will be from July 29th through August 6th. The first day HS Fall sports practices can begin is Monday, August 7th.
New SIS System
Many people are hard at work transitioning our Student Information System (SIS) from Tyler SIS to Infinite Campus. Tyler SIS planned to stop supporting the system, so we had to find a system that would work best for all we do at Marceline R-V, and Infinite Campus fit that description. More information will come out about this as we draw closer to the beginning of school.
ELC Closed on August 14th
The ELC is closed for mandatory staff professional development on Monday, August 14th.
I hope everyone is having a great summer.
Dr. Zach Bruner, Superintendent
