  • "Voices From The Future"

    St. Augustine Science Class
    Climate change and other environmental challenges will require lots of education, understanding and willingness to do what we can to be part of solutions. This is not a simple issue. It involves keeping the economy healthy and having opportunities for people to make a living. This means that it will not be solved “overnight”. We must work together in an informed, determined and sustained effort so that our children and their children have a bright future.  Here are some ideas to consider:

  • Shofner accepted into four medical schools

    Charles Shofner, a 2013 graduate of Marion County High School, was recently informed of his acceptance into four medical schools across the nation. Shofner was accepted to the University of Louisville School of Medicine, University of Kentucky College of Medicine, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, as well as the highly competitive Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington D.C.

  • Kindergarten entry age cutoff moves to Aug. 1

    Beginning with the upcoming school year, children entering kindergarten must be five years old on or before Aug. 1. Up until now, the cutoff was Oct. 1.
    The General Assembly changed the law in 2012, based on the premise that younger students may not be ready for kindergarten and may not get off to a successful start. The change takes effect for the 2017-18 school year, for which schools will soon be registering students.

  • ‘I’ve loved it all’

    When Virginia “Sugar” Hamilton walked the halls of St. Augustine Grade School as a young fifth grader, she had no idea that she would spend the next 50 years within its walls. She didn’t know about all the children she would teach, the teachers she would mentor or the lives she would touch along the way.
    Now, with a lifelong career as an educator behind her, she is ready to retire, making this her final semester at St. Augustine.

  • School board taking steps to begin addressing MCPS facilities

    The Marion County Board of Education, including its three newest members, hit the ground running during its first meeting of the year on Jan. 12.
    Now that recallable nickel funds are being generated locally, the board took several necessary steps to start the process of revising the school district’s facilities plan.
    “It’s not a quick process. It takes time,” MCPS Facility Director Scott Spalding said.
