The "historic" part of Marietta's McClain Stadium was torn down on Tuesday, January 9. The historic concrete bleachers had been condemned by an engineer during the 2017-18 school year. In July 2018, voters in the school district approved a bond issue that will replace the bleachers, as well as make other improvements to the school's sports facilities.
Whoever said that you can’t go home obviously didn’t know Courtney Jackson, daughter of Paul and Kim Jackson of Courtney. Jackson, a 2014 graduate of Marietta High School and 2018 graduate of Southeastern Oklahoma State University, has come back home to Marietta for her first teaching job. Jackson teaches fourth grade English/Language Arts. Ironically, the classroom where she’s now teaching is the same classroom where she learned as a fifth grader many years ago. She’s got a semester under her belt now, and she seems to be hitting her stride, but assures that it wasn’t always that way.

Watching the Weather – from the Roof of the Middle School?
Marietta Public Schools can now claim something that not many area schools have – their very own weather station. The weather station, purchased from Davis Instruments, measures wind, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, and precipitation, along with a handful of other things. It produces data with research-grade accuracy.
The weather station was the brainchild of middle school teacher Chris Dobbins. Dobbins, who teaches STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) classes, wanted to use the station to incorporate weather data into classes and thought it would also give the entire community a valuable asset.
We are so excited about the new weather station! Take a look at our full article for even more information.
