Welcome Back to School!

Welcome back to Mari-Linn School!  We wish each and everyone of you a fantastic year of successful learning.  Below you will find many great things happening in our area.

*Our first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 11th.  We meet in the school's library @ 6:30 pm.  Free childcare is provided by a few of our amazing Stayton High School students.  We hope to see you there!

*Beginning September 17th. the North Santiam School District will delay the start of school each Monday by one hour. During the delayed start teachers will be working in Professional Learning Communities to enhance our instruction for all students. Families unable to find childcare for that hour will be welcome to bring their child to school at the regular time, where they will be supervised by staff members. Release time for kindergarten on those days will be adjusted as well. We will give you more accurate times once the bus schedule has been made.

*The Hornet Hive Program will once again be offered beginning October 1st. Students participating in the program will be offered an after school snack, a 15 minute recess, an hour of academic supports 4 days a week, and an hour of recreational activities. On the 5th day, students will participate in 2 hours of recreational activities supervised by the YMCA.  Space is limited.  Please call the office at 503-859-2154 for more information.
