Our Marcum-Illinois family would like to invite all parents, staff, and community members to join us at our board meeting on February 28, 2017 at 3:30 in the mulit-purpose room. We will be finalizing our Marcum-Illinois School Strategic Plan. We encourage all of you to come out and share your beliefs on how, we as a school, should prioritize your students’ education. The information from the parent, staff, and board member surveys will be summarized. We are inviting further input as we get ready to publish the vision of our school community. Thank you for all your time and support.
Marcum recently started a fundraising effort involving SchoolStore. This organization gives a portion of purchases made through their links back to the school. This money will go to Marcum’s Parents’ Club for use in assemblies, field trips, etc. SchoolStore also has gift cards available to purchase for the teachers to use in their classrooms. Students earn prizes when people make purchases through their links. In only a few weeks, $990 in gift cards have been purchased for our teachers and we have also earned more than $90 in cash. Teacher’s gift cards and prizes earned by the students will be distributed monthly. We are looking forward to receiving our first shipment later this month. Thank you to all the families that have already participated in our fund-raising partnership with SchoolStore. Participation has been great so far. One of our students has the $100 Golden Ticket and it hasn’t been claimed yet. I hope to announce the $100 Golden Ticket winner soon. If you have not participated yet, there is still time. To see if your child has the Golden Ticket, simply go to schoolstore.net and sign up using the information on the SchoolStore packet your child brought home.
Beans & Bingo
This year was the 10th annual Beans and Bingo fundraiser. Throughout the years, this event has raised over $40,000 dollars for Marcum and Browns schools. This year was another successful year with a profit of $2,200 for Marcum. The Parents’ Club would like to thank everyone who donated items, volunteered their time and the parents and community members who could attend this year. Without you it wouldn’t have been possible. The next Parents’ Club meeting will be February 8th, at 3:30pm in the library. We hope to see you there. Thank you ~ Marcum Parents’ Club
Parking Lot Safety
We just wanted to take a minute to remind you that as you come through the parking lots, please remember to drive slowly and be aware of your surroundings. Many children are in these areas especially during drop-off and pick-up times and they don’t always check to see if cars are coming before they cross. Please help them stay safe by driving appropriately.
Enrichment Saturday School
This year we are going to have 3 Enrichment Saturdays. The purpose of these Saturdays is for those students who have missed a day to make it up, turning their absence into a day of attendance (this applies to both excused & unexcused absences). Having your child attend these days helps the school gain the ADA money that was lost on a day your child was absent. For absence information, please contact Stacey at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530)656-2407x10. Students must be signed up by the February 21st deadline to be able to attend. Please see attached flyer.
The focus of our GATE Program is to identify and serve those students who have demonstrated exceptional ability and outstanding academic achievement. At Marcum-Illinois, our GATE program consists of GATE instruction within our core curriculum and provides after school GATE enrichment classes.
All after school enrichment classes will be between 3:30 and 4:30 pm.
