Update 8/8/22

August 8th, 2022

Dear Marceline R-V Community:

As the first day of school draws near, lots of hard work is being put in behind the scenes to get everything prepared for a successful school year. Our maintenance staff, office staff, administrators, teachers, coaches/sponsors, and volunteers have been prepping for our 2022-23 school year. I am thrilled to be a part of it and look forward to the beginning of school as well as the activities that will follow.

I will continue planning to update the community on happenings within the school district moving forward. Today, I want to give an update as we prepare for the 2022-23 school year.



As posted on our social media outlets, we have back-to-school events coming up soon. Our faculty workshops days are August 16th-18th, with school beginning on August 22nd. 

  • Senior composites will be taken beginning at 8:00 am on Wednesday, August 10th.

  • The Walt Disney Elementary Open House is on August 16th from 5:30-6:30 pm. 

  • The ELC Open House is on August 16th from 6:00-6:30 pm.


If you look around campus there have been some updates to our buildings and grounds that definitely help our district look great. A few shoutouts are in order:

  • Thanks to BP Drywall and Precision Painting for the work they did painting the awning at Walt Dinsey Elementary. It definitely helps the building look great with the new white paint. 

  • Thanks to Barnett Construction for the concrete work that they did at the entrances of Walt Dinsey Elementary and Marceline High School as well as down at Chester Ray Stadium. The new concrete makes these areas look great and provides safer surfaces. 

  • Lastly, I would like to thank Marceline High School 11th grader, Kason Brammer for his hard work in building a retaining wall next to the new concrete at Chester Ray Stadium. Kason did this as an Eagle Scout project; it was a needed project that looks great
