 DC visits EM STC

Dakota Fanning, actor and the newest artist ambassador for the nonprofit Save the Children, visited preschoolers at East Marion Elementary School. These students are part of Save the Children’s sponsorship program, which gives kids the gift of a brighter future through learning opportunities. Fanning was a natural with the kids. She got down on the floor with them and read some of their favorite books, including The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle and I Went Walking by Sue Williams. Save the Children’s sponsorship program helps to give kids a strong start in life and the best chance for success.

 Marion County Spelling Bee
MCSD Winner
Bee Champ

The Mississippi Association of Educators annually sponsors a Spelling Bee, which gives students grades 1-8  the opportunity to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee program. In addition to improving students' spelling skills and increasing their vocabularies, spelling bee participation provides valuable experience in developing  poise - a necessary skill for success in public speaking, performing arts, and athletics.

Our students participated in school level bees and the winner from each participating school competed at the district level for a chance to compete in Jackson for the  Mississippi Championship Spelling Bee Title. The winner at the district level, Natassiera from East Marion High  competed with twenty-five other students from across Mississippi for this title. We are so proud of her for advancing on to this level.
