Scam alert - Marathon area
 
A company that calls itself "Sports Media" is reportedly attempting to sell advertisements to businesses in the Marathon area for a "Marathon High School 2016 Spring Sports Poster." This is a scam and this company is not affiliated in any way with our local schools.
 
The internet lists many complaints about this company in various areas of the country. The Sheriff's Office has confirmed that Marathon High School has not hired this company to perform any services, nor do they support this effort in any way. 

MMHS Welcomes DRC as Community Partner for Reading Program
Marathon Middle High was pleased to collaborate with Dolphin Research Center (DRC) this school year to offer incentives to our middle and high school students for reading done outside of the school day. The annual Superintendent’s Ultimate Reading Awards program offered drawings for bonus prizes to students who challenged themselves to achieve 100 AR points at 85% or higher. Monroe County Schools awarded a Kindle Fire to one bonus-eligible middle school student and one high school student. Dolphin Research Center added additional bonus prizes at varied grade levels including a Dolphin Encounter, Dolphin Dips, and free family admissions to DRC.

Pictured:  Bonus-eligible eighth-graders, at left, and sixth graders, at right, all won a special prize at the Superintendent’s Ultimate Reading Awards from MCSD or Dolphin Research Center to honor their reading achievements. Also pictured are Principal Wendy McPherson, far left; school board member John Dick, center left; DRC Educational Coordinator Beth Pinkus, center; Superintendent Mark Porter, center right; and school board member Capt.

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.
