Kiwanis Safe Kids City

Marion Elementary's 2nd and 3rd grade students participated in the Kiwanis Safe Kids City at school on March 28. Students visited various locations in the "city" where they were instructed on health and safety by volunteers from the community and Kiwanis. High school students from the Kiwanis Key Club helped guide students from station to station, and also provided instruction.

My School Bucks

In order to better serve our parents and community, Smyth County Schools Food Service Program has invested in a web-based cafeteria application called My School Bucks. This application enables parents/guardians to view their child's lunch account status, including account balance, meals eaten, and a la carte/extra items purchased. Parents will also be able to make online payments. There is no charge to view a student account status; however, the company does charge $2.50 to process each online payment. To create an account, click the My School Bucks link above. You will need your child's six-digit cafeteria ID number to complete the account setup. Registration is free. New students will receive their cafeteria ID number at the time of registration or on the first day of school.
