There's always something exciting happening at Marietta Public Schools, and we want to help you stay informed and involved. We will update this page regularly with important district announcements and news. Please check back often!
The Marietta gymnasium has a new feature. The next time you visit you will see two big screen TVs on each side of the stands. Athletics Director Jarred Messer has recently announced a new program to assist with fundraising efforts for the basketball teams. Parents, grandparents or others can sponsor an ad with their student name and special message during all home basketball games. The ads will run on both screens inside the gym, as well as the lobby area and the hospitality room.
The money we raise through this sponsorship will help provide new equipment, continue upgrades to the locker rooms, and allow for various needs for the basketball players. The cost per ad is $20. You can turn in the form with student information and money to any school office or coach. The first home game is on Saturday, December 1. Please see our basketball player sponsorship form for more information on this exciting new program.
Katia Juarez, Janette Garcia-Perez, Monica Salazar, Lexi Newman, Yaslin Sanchez, Jade McGee, and Heaven Sustaire, Marietta High School FCCLA members and students of Amanda Faulkenberry, traveled to Louisville, Kentucky for the National Cluster Meeting on November 9 and 10.
“Thousands of students from all over the country come to Cluster Meeting,” said Faulkenberry, who sponsors the group.
Students hear keynote speakers, participate in community service and project workshops, attend college and career fairs, and take educational trips to local museums and other tourist areas.
They also compete in different skills events, and Marietta’s Heaven Sustaire was on her A-game. Sustaire earned a rare honor for her school: she placed first in the nation in the senior division of the Skills and Demonstration Events Early Childhood Challenge.
“We are so proud of Heaven! She did a fantastic job.” Faulkenberry said. “This is only the second time I’ve had a student place first at the national level.”
Marietta High School’s FCCLA chapter plays a strong role in the student body, fostering leadership and service, while maintaining plenty of attention on college and career. Their focus on family and community is displayed in their many service projects, including their work with the school food pantry, March of Dimes, Special Olympics, and Toby Keith’s OK Kids Korral.
On Monday, November 12, the Marietta High School Student Council sponsored a Veterans Day assembly in the school auditorium. Students from middle and high schools, as well as several members of the community attended the event. Local veterans received a special invitation to attend.
