Marion County Public Schools is committed to expanding our Ready-Set-Grow Book Initiative for students between ages 0-4 by providing more families with reading material at home.
Community Birthday Bash
Marion County Public schools partnered with Springview Hospital, Central Kentucky Head Start, HANDS, First Steps, and CECC to give children in our community a Big Birthday Bash! We had 100 people in attendance with 41 being children from Birth to 4 years of age.
It was wonderful seeing so many happy families come together-we are so thankful for all in attendance. Please share the word---next year we want 200 people at our event.
Parents were provided resources, information, door prizes, and a book (author-Rosemary Wells). We were honored to have the Birthday Bunny greet the children and families. Also, as any good birthday party---cupcakes were served!
Books Given To All 3 and 4 year old Students in Marion County
Marion County Schools presented to all 3 and 4 year old children in Marion County Preschool, Head Start, St. A., Cornerstone To Learning, Loretto Preschool, and Kid's Place with a Christmas Book. The children received, Max's Christmas by Rosemary Wells. *If you have a child not attending any of these programs and your child is 4 years old--please contact us and we will make sure your child receives a book.
Marion County Public Schools encourages all parents to read to their children 20 minutes a day (also known as R20). Why? Check out the graphic below and other resources on this page to find out!

Spring View Hospital Donation
On Friday, October 31st, 2014, County Judge Exec. John G. Mattingly and his wife, Janet, donated 175 books to Spring View Hospital’s Women’s Center for the school district’s big dream of Ready-Set-Grow to help establish that learning begins at birth. The book is titled “Read to Your Bunny” and a copy is being presented to all new parents of babies born at Spring View Hospital. Judge Mattingly pledged in May during the Marion County Public School’s Strategic Planning Summit to make a personal donation to purchase these books. Pictured are parents Dooley & Sara Wright with their son Jake.
