LAST CHANCE this year for school pictures is 1/18!

News Blog Category - News All students and staff, please take note:

Thursday, Jan. 18, will be the very last chance to get school photos taken. This is for both senior portraits and underclassmen pictures. We want as many photos as possible to include in the 2018 yearbook, so even if you do not want to purchase pictures, please get your picture taken this day if you haven't yet!

The photographer will only be here from 8 a.m. to noon. Pictures will be taken in the lobby of the Walton Performing Arts Center here at MHS.

If you come after that you will be too late! (This means if you're normally not in the building in the mornings, you'll need to make special plans to do so. Talk with your teachers if need be to be able to stop by to get your picture taken.)

All you have to do is show up! We'd really love to have all of our fantastic teachers and administrators in our yearbook, so years from now we can remember when ...

All students wanting to get pictures on this day must fill out a form in the main office before picture day.

An additional note for seniors: Guidelines for senior photos are as follows:
  • Girls are asked to wear a nice blouse or sweater. Shoulders and chest must be covered. Strapless, tank tops, spaghetti straps, and low necklines will not be allowed for the senior section.
  • Boys are asked to wear a collared shirt & tie. Coat and tie are preferred.
Senior portrait sessions include 6 to 8 poses and 3 backgrounds (but only 1 outfit). Deadline to choose your favorite photo for the yearbook is Feb. 28.

Marion Regional Career Center’s Information Technology Academy is pleased to announce a partnership with Marion Public Library to offer technology assistance to the Marion community.
The MRCC Technical Assistance Center (TAC) will open on Thursday, Jan. 11. Student technology specialists will be available inside Marion Public Library on Thursdays and Fridays during the school year, from 9 to 11:15 a.m. and 12:30 to 2:45 p.m. (In the event of inclement weather, student technology specialists may not be available.)

“We’re committed to providing our students the opportunity to serve the communities in which they live and work, while at the same time providing students with the most up-to-date knowledge and skills so that they can pursue jobs that contribute to the economy,” said Travis Hueston, IT Academy instructor at Marion Regional Career Center. “Our partnership with Marion Public Library allows students to provide library patrons and community members with technical assistance and support on electronic devices such as computers, tablets, cellular phones, and printers, while at the same time earning high school and college credit through our dual credit agreement with Vincennes University.”

Students will also be on hand to provide instruction on using such equipment, as well as many software titles including Microsoft Office. The TAC also hopes to provide equipment repair and hardware services in the near future.

“One of MRCC’s goals is to offer every student an opportunity to earn real-life work experience. Partnering with Marion Public Library gives our IT students a chance to earn that experience, plus provide our community another place to receive help with their computer needs,” MRCC Director Mike Ripperger said.

Marion Regional Career Center’s Information Technology Academy is open to students from all participating schools in the county. Students who are interested should contact their counselor, or alternately reach out to Nate McNeely at MRCC, 765-664-9091, or email him at nmcneely@marion.k12.in.us.
