Today Mrs. Julie Coveny, Federal Programs Coordinator, and several central office employees put together holiday food baskets to ensure several Marion School District students and their families had food for the holiday break.  Many central office employees donated non-perishable goods and money to help this cause.  Word spread and Mrs. Coveny was also gifted with a wonderful donation from the MSD Foundation, Inc. and the students of Ms. Collin Thornton and Ms. Sarah Horn from Marion High School.  Hope House also donated backpacks, school supplies, and toys for these special Marion School District families.  Mrs. Coveny and the district P.A.T.S. program works hard to help students have their needs met in order to be successful Patriots.
