News Blog Category - News Next month, the fifth annual Marion Community Schools Kindness Rally will celebrate the power that kindness has to change our schools, our community, and the world! This event is open to the entire community, and we hope YOU will join us!

Highlights will include the Chain Reaction Ceremony; the annual Student Kindness Awards and Staff Kindness Awards; the Kindness Chain Parade (where representatives from each school march in with paper chains, with each link representing an act of kindness noticed throughout the school year); a pasta dinner; and a carnival with bounce houses, photo booth, food, and more!

The Kindness Rally is set for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 12, 2017, at the Marion High School gym. Tickets to be used for the carnival attractions will be four for $1, and proceeds will fund continuing anti-bullying efforts throughout the school system.

Pasta dinners will be available, including pasta with choice of red or white sauce, salad, garlic bread, a drink, and a cookie, for just $4!

The Chain Reaction Ceremony is set for 5:30 p.m. (Doors open at 5 p.m.) The ceremony will feature:
  • MHS JROTC presenting the flag.
  • Performances by school music groups.
  • Presentation of Student Kindness Awards, which honor one student from each school who embodies the spirit and kindness and who consistently exhibits it to those around them.
  • Messages from district administrators.
  • The Kindness Chain Parade.
The carnival will begin immediately after the ceremony.

All schools participate in the creation of the Kindness Chains throughout the year, but each school also has various other ways of recognizing and encouraging students and staff who display kindness and have an impact on others. At some schools, this includes cards or other rewards given for specific acts of kindness. At others, it involves recognition in a bulletin board display. The Student Kindness Awards are a natural outgrowth of this recognition process. One student from each building is selected by their administrators. We believe that simple acts of kindness have the power to change our classrooms, our schools, our community, and the world. Because of that, we truly believe the Student Kindness Awards are some of the highest honors we can bestow.

Marion Community Schools is proud of our students and staff who are starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion and making positive changes in our schools and community. We hope that students of all ages and their families, along with community members, will come and help us celebrate at the Kindness Rally!
