15 Ways Marion Elementary School Will Benefit From Capital Project
Pride and tradition are just two words that come to mind when describing Marion Elementary School.
Built in the 1930s, MES has served our community for generations and the District is hoping it continues to do so for many years to come.
On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the District will host a Capital Project vote from noon to 8 p.m. at Marion Elementary School. The Capital Project, estimated at $14 million, addresses maintenance, accessibility, repair and efficiency needs at MES, Marion Junior-Senior High School and the Marion Bus Garage.
Here are 15 ways the Capital Project will have a positive impact at MES:
Nearly 45,000 square feet of new lay-in suspended acoustical ceilings for classrooms

Renovate and add toilet to girls’ locker room
Renovate the old main office to be more efficient for Counseling staff and privacy of students
