On-line Access Capability Survey - IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

The Marion Center Area School District is surveying families in order to determine if on-line learning and/or on-line supplemental programs are an option for our district, IF this closure is extended. This does not mean that we have decided to go virtual, but this will help us as we continue to plan for continuity of instruction for our students as we move forward. We need ALL families to participate! Please spread the word, and if possible, help your friends and neighbors fill out the survey (practicing the guidelines of social distancing, of course) as soon as possible. CLICK READ FULL STORY TO COMPLETE THE SURVEY. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Principal's Message

Dear Rayne Families,
Many times teachers (and principals) are asked by parents, "What can I do at home to help my child be successful at school?"  Our answer is quite simple. "Read with your child every day."  Before, during, and after the reading. . . praise your child, talk about the story, ask questions, visualize the story, offer information, share personal reactions, and relate the story to life experiences.  Most of all, remember to enjoy the story together, and let your child see that reading is fun.  Cherish this special time together!  
Thank you!
Susan DeVaughn
