Marcellus Community Schools strives to ensure that students and parents are informed about the exciting educational opportunities available to our students. Toward that end, school officials encourage parents to participate in upcoming events and take advantage of the district’s online information resources.  

Homecoming is scheduled for February 16 where the Wildcats will take on the Bangor Vikings.   Tip off is at 7:00 p.m.  The February 12- 16 homecoming week will be filled with fun student festivities including dress up days, assemblies, and homecoming contests.

On February 22, from 12:00- 3:00 p.m. and from 4:30 -7:30 p.m., the district will host parent-teacher conferences. Conferences are an important avenue for parents to work directly with teachers to promote student success.   Parents are also encouraged to visit the online PowerSchool viewer to monitor student progress and grades.  Please contact the building office for login and password information. Additional valuable information can be found on the district’s website at www.marcelluscs.org.
