I want to extend our thanks to the community for approving the zero tax increase levy on Tuesday, May 7. The Board of Education and staff in Marysville Schools understand that we are living in extraordinary economic times and, with this ballot issue, comes tremendous responsibility and accountability on our part.
As stewards of your tax dollars, we remain committed to ensuring that those dollars are spent efficiently and used to support student learning. The board of education spent countless hours studying funding options that would least impact students and taxpayers in our community. With the renewal of these funds, we will continue on a path of financial stability in our schools with no additional tax to residents.
Because of your commitment to our students, we continue to make advances in our ongoing pursuit of academic excellence. We were rated "Excellent with Distinction" for the 2011-2012 school year and continue to make strides on many key indicators of achievement. More and more students are learning at higher levels and, with your support, we will continue to build upon those successes. We will not lose sight of these goals while, at the same time, providing a good value to residents.
On behalf of our Marysville students, staff, and Board of Education, I want to extend our thanks to the community for supporting our schools on May 7. Great schools and great community go hand in hand. I am proud to be part of a community that believes in this important partnership.

Just recently, students enrolled in Sports and Entertainment Marketing at the high school were given a glimpse of how the sports business world works. They listened to presentations from the Columbus Clippers Director of Marketing and Sales, Mark Galuska, and their Director of Public and Media Relations, Joe Santry. Students learned about how the Clippers use marketing and advertising, how they engage their customers at games, and a lot of history about the Clippers. Thanks Clippers!
In appreciation for her lifelong dedication to special education... for believing in children, for guiding through example, for inspiring with passion, for living through loving, for leaving an indelible mark on so many futures, for touching the human soul.
The Marysville Special Education Department would like to invite Mrs. Traucht's former students, parents, colleagues, friends, family and the Marysville community at large to help celebrate this educator who has touched so many lives with a public reception.
Sunday, May 5th from 2:00 - 5:00 pm

On Tuesday April 30, 2013 at 7:00PM, the entire Marysville community will have a say in who becomes your next Monarch Idol. This community event is presented by The Monarch Vibe and Josh Moreno Productions for the second year in a row. This year, over 20 hopefuls from Marysville High School performed in the preliminary round in March before the judges narrowed it down to our Top 7 contestants. At the Grand Finale, each of the Top 7 finalists will perform two songs in front of the live audience and four judges. The judges will provide immediate feedback to the contestants but the winner will be determined via text message vote at the end of the evening by the live audience. This year is an exciting year for Monarch Idol, with finalists ranging from their freshman to senior year, we have an amazing group ready to perform in front of the community! Tickets are $5.00 each for the 2013 Monarch Idol Grand Finale which will be held at the Marysville High School Auditorium on Tuesday April 30, 2013 at 7:00PM. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit The Monarch Vibe school newspaper/magazine.
Kick off was held Monday, April 1 for Child Abuse Prevention Month. Several individuals and agencies that have a strong history of partnering with Union County Department of Job and Family Services to help keep children safe and strengthen families were honored. One of these individuals was our very own Ellen Traucht, Director of Student Services. "Schools across Union County are constantly partnering with our agency and we wanted to ensure that one of our partnership awards this year went to a school representative. Ellen Traucht was the immediate choice for this award as she has tirelessly helped and supported youth in Marysville Schools for over 30 years. She has partnered with Children Services time and time again to improve academic performance, to support strong family life and to provide opportunities to youth without resources. Ellen's personal and professional goal for these many years has been to promote whatever is in the child's best interest. We applaud her for a career that has had such positive influences on children and their families."
SACC Summer Day Camp at COSI on Wheels!
In an exciting new collaboration, Marysville Schools will offer a Summer Reading Camp program in cooperation with the SACC Summer Day Camp program.
The SACC Summer Day Camp program offers a traditional day camp for K-6th grade students. Camp is full of great opportunities to stay engaged in learning, with great hands-on, student-driven, youth development and educational opportunities like sports, games, art, crafts, field trips, cooking, gardening and STEM activities.
In this new partnership, the Summer Reading Camp (which was known as Elementary Summer School) has been updated by Northwood Elementary School Reading Specialist David Hensinger and SACC Director Nichelle Harris. This program has been intentionally designed to offer a fresh approach to helping students who are not on track in reading. All Reading Camp participants will receive two hours of tutoring with a strong emphasis on literacy development. Additionally, parents will have the option of also enrolling their student in SACC Summer Day Camp, providing them with an all-day camp experience at a very, very low price.
Reading Camp will be a five week program that begins July 8th and completes on August 9th. Eligible campers will be 3rd and 2nd grade students who score below proficient on the Spring OAAs or have other demonstrated academic need. Registration will begin the week of June 17th. Eligible students will be given first priority, after which wait-listed students will be added.

Due to the structural damage caused by a truck crashing into the Marysville Schools' Board Office at 1000 Edgewood Drive on September 16, the administrative offices have been temporarily relocated to the former Marysville Middle School at 833 North Maple Street.
All mail and phone communications are being forwarded to the Maple Street location.
It is anticipated that the repairs will take approximately six to eight weeks.
