Residents of the district, all staff and administration are encouraged to participate in the process. An online survey is available at this URL: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/marlettesearch (This link can also be found under the News Section on the MCS Website) Survey responses are sent directly to MASB in Lansing for tabulation. The Board will publicly consider the input received and develop a Candidate Profile, which will guide the process as candidates are recruited and selected for public interview.

If you have a question, please give me a call at 989-635-4925.

PM career center students will need a ride to the school to ride the bus over to the career center and may ride their usual bus home upon their return in the afternoon. #BearWithUs #Sorry

The letter will state if your family will receive free or reduced priced meals during the 2020-2021 school year.

Families who will receive reduced meals may wish to complete an application to see if you qualify for free meals based on income. Free/reduced meal applications can be found online via Skyward or by request in each building office.
Update on Jr/Sr High School Schedules We are mindful that parents and students desire to see their class schedules. We are in the process of finalizing schedules.

Marlette Jr./Sr. High School Students & Parents, I hope this message finds you and your family staying safe and healthy. Since the Governor's Executive Order last Thursday, the staff at Marlette Jr./Sr. High School has been collaborating to develop a remote learning plan to best meet the needs of our students. We thank you all for your patience as we worked through this development process that has been uncharted territory for us all. We are aware of the varying levels of technology accessibility within our school community, and we have devised a plan to address those differences. Our plan aims to assist students with their emotional, social, and academic needs during this unprecedented time. The upcoming journey is new to us all, so we know there will be some 'bumps in the road.' Do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher(s) or me with any questions or concerns you have. If your child is able to, please encourage your child to check their school issued Google Email account daily for more information and teacher instructions. We will work through this together! Attached below are the following - Explanation video for 7-11 grade remote learning plan - Remote learning plan for 7-11 graders (PDF version) - Explanation video for 12 grade remote learning plan - Remote learning plan for 12 graders (PDF version) - Jr./Sr. High staff contact information during remote learning time Thank you for your support and patience, Principal Garnett Kohler Go Red Raiders! 7-11 https://youtu.be/UgvGvW0u-Nw https://drive.google.com/file/d/1y2uRXAz_LyynvmOVd4qOup3YDy1WFjtY/view?usp=sharing 12- https://youtu.be/UxDw7d5kDaI https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LpNuyopLHAh2A_t1MtfhVE8UnaYlPTtR/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qrzc1fCMaP4GMvQXxhMFxL1AJ4TbVlVm/view?usp=sharing

Reminder - Automatic Food Service Deposits Parents who have set up automatic food service payments through Efunds for Schools should discontinue those for the remainder of this school year.
Hello families! Marlette Jr/Sr High School wanted to give an amazing project that you can do together as a family. You can create a tessellation which combines art with math! One of the most famous artists who combined math and art was MC Escher. You can check out his designs for inspiration or learn more about him in the links below. There are 2 main types of tessellations: a translation of the created object which just slides the object up/down and left/right or a rotational tessellation which “spins” the object. Check out the links below to see how to create the tessellations and then try one for yourself. Color and decorate them with your great imaginations! Take a picture of your creation and post it to the Marlette Community Schools’ Facebook page for an opportunity to win a gift card to one of our amazing local businesses. Good Luck and Happy Tessellating! Learn more about MC Escher: https://mcescher.com/about/biography/ Works by Escher to help inspire you: https://mcescher.com/gallery/symmetry/ Creating a translated tessellation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FIOF8xsPas Creating a rotational tessellation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lejiRl9paFc
Happy Friday #RedRaiderNation, As most of you are aware, the Governor's Executive Order suspended in-person K-12 instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. To allow our fabulous MCS staff to prepare for the extended school closure, we will NOT be distributing new materials during the week of April 6th. Instead, next week MCS will be posting daily "challenges" to students and families through our district's social media outlets. The "challenges" will be family oriented and aimed at keeping students engaged in learning and exploring. Please post your pictures to our district Facebook page once your students complete the daily "challenges." From those posts, we will randomly select daily winners that will be awarded gift cards to local businesses. Let's all enjoy learning together! Additionally, the MCS staff is busy preparing our educational plan as we transition to remote learning for the remainder of the school year. The anticipated start date of our plan is April 13th. More details will be communicated next week. We thank you for your patience as we work to create a plan that best serves our students' academic, social, and emotional needs.
Hi High School Families, I hope you and your families are staying healthy and safe. I know that with school closing, many of you who wanted to order a yearbook probably did not get a chance to do so. Even with the school closing, we will still have a completed yearbook to commemorate your year. I will still be able to take yearbook orders over the next couple of weeks. Just email me and let me know if you want a book. If you and your parents are able to pay now, that would be great. Checks can be made out to Marlette Community Schools and sent to my home address 5262 Martus Rd. North Branch, MI 48461 If you are unable to make payment at this time, that is fine. I can collect money when the books arrive. Thanks, Mr. Barrows (email@example.com)
Good Afternoon Marlette Community Schools Families! We hope you are all doing well and have reached out for support if needed. Although we do not know at this time what the rest of the school year will look like, in an effort to be proactive, we have created a technology survey to help us gather information about the needs of our Marlette Schools community. Please take a moment to complete this short survey so that we can utilize the information as we plan for next steps. We hope to hear more from the Governor and our Michigan Department of Education tomorrow to help guide us moving forward. Once we know more and have your responses, we will have a plan ready by early next week. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfcdgJY-NtG2-_H50TxVfLX7_P12vdRRUNjE7Enxm_9NI4p0w/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1lhBlC5JLGc0J6frw_ZGGwal_PrG_LmnvSiZVYQpjY0XmbeQCSn5KbiLI Thank you for all you are doing to support your children during this unprecedented time in our nation's history. Please complete this survey by Friday, April 3.
This is a reminder, today is our food delivery day, please try to watch for your bus. With the temperatures rising we do not like leaving the food on porches.

Update from DC Trip Cookie Dough Order: Participants can take pictures of their order forms and text (989-395-5184) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) them to Mrs. George. Currently, Savory Foods is pushing all deliveries out to the week of April 13th or later.
https://5il.co/e2gj Updated DC Trip Cookie Dough Fundraiser: We have just received word from Savory Foods (the manager of the current Marlette DC Trip cookie dough fundraiser) that they will be unable to provide online options for ordering, despite previous reports. Understandably, the company is completely overwhelmed at the moment, and we are trying to get those orders completed as conveniently as possible for everyone. If you have orders that you need to turn in for the DC Trip cookie dough fundraiser, you may mail your orders directly to Mrs. George. She will make sure the orders get entered and credit is given to student accounts. Mrs. George's address is: 5834 S. Kingston Road, Clifford, MI 48727. After the orders are placed, Mrs. George will be sure to give an approximate delivery date, and we will go from there. Please be sure to contact her at email@example.com if you have ANY questions at all. Stay safe! ~Beverly George (DC Trip Coordinator)

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers.You will always find people who are helping.' To this day, especially in times of 'disaster', I remember my mother's words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world." - Fred Rogers

Senior Riley Ford capped off a spectacular Red Raider career with a State Champion runner-up title at the Division 4 Finals at Michigan International Speedway this past Saturday. Ford was in second place on the sloppy course from start to finish in the field of 238 runners. She fought off the third place finisher with less than a mile to go to finish with a time of 19:22. This is the highest finish by any Marlette runner and she is the only girl to qualify for state all four years and to finish all-state three of those years. Riley will continue her running career next fall at Dalton State College in Georgia. “We are so proud of all the hard work and dedication Riley has poured into her high school career. She worked tremendously hard and fought the entire race to earn the title of State Champion runner-up. Capping off back to back regional and league titles, three time all-state honors, and many individual wins, it was a great day for Riley and Marlette Cross Country.” said Coach Chris Titus

On the boys side rookie senior and rookie freshman, Blake VanHorn and Dakota McCombs finished their seasons with strong performances. “We were hopeful to try to slide in as a team but hats off to Harbor Beach, Deckerville and Owen-Gage on their team performances. We were really excited to see how strong Riley ran and know that it’s always good to have momentum going into the state meet.
