Patriot Nation: Funeral services for Elmer West will be held tomorrow Monday, November 18, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Marion Performing Arts Center. Clearly, his passing leaves a huge void in both the Marion School District and in our community. In an effort to afford as many associated with the Marion School District as possible an opportunity to attend the services, ALL MSD Schools will dismiss at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
The Marion Patriot family lost one of our finest last night with the passing of Elmer West. Elmer made a great impact on so many in our region. Patriot Nation please keep his wife Jenny, his sons Landon and Caleb, his daughter-in-law Julie, his sister Melissa Kohl and their families in your thoughts and prayers. You are all loved and he will be greatly missed by so many.
The Marion Patriots will host the Siloam Springs Panthers Friday in the first round of the 6A State Football Playoffs. We hope you can come out and support the football team, band, and cheerleaders. Game time is 7:00 Admission is $6-- This price is set by the Arkansas Activities Association. Also, only 2019-20 AAA Passes will be accepted. NO Patriot Passes or Marion student/athlete or employee ID passes will be allowed for admission.

Dear Friends, After watching the latest PATCAST, I came away humbled. I don’t take for granted the people who trusted Fred Leonard and I enough to buy-in what all the Hometown Showdown entails. At the center of this trust is the belief that we are put on God’s green Earth to make a difference. What have we done for the least of these? I ask this question, knowing that I’m cloaked in human frailty. I’m not perfect. We all aren’t. However, there comes these rare moments when you know that what you are doing is right. The fact that we all are working together to make a difference in the lives of those who are going through battles that we cannot imagine. We can certainly answer the question above. Here’s to you Patriot Nation. Watch this video and be blessed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm_pMbm-Pow&feature=youtu.be Grandon

We, as many others, have been monitoring the social media post that has referenced the threat of possible school shootings on August 29th. Federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies, as well as our own MSD Campus Safety staff, are vigilantly monitoring the situation. At present the threat is believed to be nothing more than a hoax. Moreover, nothing in the post specified our school district or even districts within our region. Nonetheless, we will continue to monitor the situation and take prudent precautions to make certain that our students and staff remain safe. Please remember that you too can assist in keeping our campuses safe by simply reporting anything that you see or hear to any one of our local law enforcement agencies. We will continue to keep you updated as information merits. Thank you for your continued support, thoughts and prayers. #OnePatriotOneCommunity
