News Blog Category - News This holiday season, as carols tell of a special star that shone long ago, Marion High School’s state-of-the-art planetarium will put on a special show that explores the wonders of the night sky.

The public is invited to MHS for “Seasonal Stargazing: Winter and Season of Lights”. Showings will be as follows:
  • 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3
  • 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4
Admission is free, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-seated basis on the day of the show. Doors will open about 30 minutes before each showing. Enter MHS through Door 22 at the front of the building. The show lasts about an hour.

Several of these shows precede or follow the Marion Community School of the Arts’ holiday ballet, The Nutcracker, which starts at 7 p.m. Dec. 3 and 2 p.m. Dec. 4 in the Walton Performing Arts Center at MHS. (Click here for Nutcracker ticket info.) This is a great opportunity for two special experiences with the family, right here in Marion!

The planetarium at MHS was renovated in fall 2012. It boasts state-of-the-art LED cove lighting; 5.1 surround sound system with JBL cinema series speakers that push 2400 watts of power; a Digitarium Kappa projector that broadcasts full dome shows; and seating for 58.

Marion Community Schools is pleased to be able to present this special show to the public and share our exceptional facilities with the community in this way.

News Blog Category - News June still seems like the distant future, but graduation preparations for the Class of 2017 have already begun. 

The next few months will be a busy time for our seniors as they finish out their high school careers strong, and prepare for life after they leave MHS. There are several steps seniors need to go through to be ready for commencement ceremonies, and you will hear about those in a variety ways, including the regular daily announcements, the online calendar, and right here on the MHS News Blog.

Currently, seniors should be checking the diploma list, which has now been posted in Student Services and in the display case across the hallway behind Student Services. Seniors: Please verify that your name on the list is spelled correctly and is exactly how you want it to appear on your MHS diploma. If you need to make any changes, please see Mrs. Wisser in Student Services.

In addition, if you have not yet filled out a graduation card, see Mrs. Wisser.

Now is the time to be tying up all the loose ends on college and scholarship applications, too. Check out the Guidance Department's Scholarships Page here on the website for information on dozens of scholarships. If you need more information or any other help, please see your guidance counselor!
