Black History Month Exhibit
The Marathon High School Learning Commons (Media Center) is hosting a traveling pop-up museum for Black History Month. The exhibit, entitled Spirits of the Passage: Stories of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, was designed for Florida students by the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum and funded, in part, by a grant from the State of Florida’s Bureau of Historical Resources. The display will be open during school hours for students and visitors. An Open House for community members is planned for February 3 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Guests are invited to stay for the School Advisory Council meeting at 6:00.

Seth Landry named District's Sunshine State Scholar!

Superintendent of Schools Mark T. Porter has announced that Seth Landry from Marathon High School will represent the Monroe County School District at the Sunshine State Scholars Program in February 2015. 

Seth currently has a 4.52 weighted GPA.  "Research is what I wish to pursue, because everything begins with research in order to find the problems and their solutions," stated Landry. "There are so many unanswered mysteries, and as progress moves forward, even more appear. I want to be able to understand them, know where they are and what they do, and apply it all towards new discoveries so I can solve these problems."
 
Superintendent Mark Porter commented, "Seth Landry is a truly exemplary representative of the Monroe County Schools in the Sunshine State Scholar program.  Seth’s accomplishments at Marathon High School and throughout his career are a tribute to his ability and work ethic, and a tribute to his supportive parents and teachers as well.  We are proud of Seth Landry and his accomplishments.  Congratulations!"
 
The District scholar, parents, and a teacher who has had a significant influence will be invited to travel to Orlando for a two-day program. (Click here for additional information)

Florida State Student Astronaut Challenge

Marathon High School recently sent ten students (two teams of five) to qualify for the Florida State Student Astronaut Challenge, hosted by NASA and the Kennedy Space Center. The qualifier consisted of a 100 question multiple choice test based on the history and science of rockets and the Space Program. Fifteen teams (five per region) were selected from the top scorers from the regional qualifiers to participate in the state competition to be held at the Kennedy Space Center in February 2015. In the state competition, teams will compete in events that focus on the demonstration of knowledge and understanding of the field of aerospace science as well as problem solving skills and performance within a space shuttle flight simulator. One of our teams qualified top in the South Region and 10th overall in the state, allowing them to move on to compete in the state competition. Members of the qualifying team are: Reef Landrum, John Galjanic, Sharon Rodriguez, Carlos O’Farrill, and Seth Landry. Congratulations to these students, and good luck in February!

The purpose of the high school community service program is to encourage students to undertake volunteer activities in Monroe County. This program can enhance awareness of community problems and engage students in becoming agents of change. Community service is defined as volunteer hours donated to a selected organization that is non-profit in nature. Students give back to the community by sharing their talents, time and resources.
