  • Reading Tips for Parents

    Find ways to read, write, and tell stories together with your child. Always applaud your young reader and beginning story writer! The tips below offer some fun ways you can help your child become a happy and confident reader. Try a new tip each week. See what works best for your child.

    Make books special

    Turn reading into something special. Take your kids to the library, help them get their own library card, read with them, and buy them books as gifts. Have a favorite place for books in your home or, even better, put books everywhere.

    Get them to read another one

    Find ways to encourage your child to pick up another book. Introduce him or her to a series like The Boxcar Children or Harry Potter or to a second book by a favorite author, or ask the librarian for additional suggestions.

    Crack open the dictionary

    Let your child see you use a dictionary. Say, "Hmm, I'm not sure what that word means... I think I'll look it up."

    Talk about what you see and do

    Talk about everyday activities to build your child's background knowledge, which is crucial to listening and reading comprehension. Keep up a running patter, for example, while cooking together, visiting somewhere new, or after watching a TV show.

    First drafts are rough

    Encourage your child when writing. Remind him or her that writing involves several steps. No one does it perfectly the first time.

    Different strokes for different folks

    Read different types of books to expose your child to different types of writing. Some kids, especially boys, prefer nonfiction books.

    Teach your child some "mind tricks"

    Show your child how to summarize a story in a few sentences or how to make predictions about what might happen next. Both strategies help a child comprehend and remember.

    "Are we there yet?"

    Use the time spent in the car or bus for wordplay. Talk about how jam means something you put on toast as well as cars stuck in traffic. How many other homonyms can your child think of? When kids are highly familiar with the meaning of a word, they have less difficulty reading it.

  • Welcome

    Welcome to Marion Intermediate School!

    I am excited to welcome all students to MIS as we begin our journey this 2018-2019 school year of growing better together. Teachers have been working hard, preparing their classrooms and lessons so all students can achieve success academically, behaviorally, and socially.

    As a reminder, all students must wear uniforms of khaki pants and a specified color collared shirt – 3rd graders wear navy blue, 4th graders wear maroon/burgundy, 5th graders wear dark green.

    The school doors open at 7:00 a.m. for students to eat breakfast, if they choose. The tardy bell rings at 7:45 when instruction begins. The school day ends at 2:30 p.m.

    I look forward to a fantastic year with our students as they become leaders!


    Mrs. Dozier, Principal

  • Scholastic Books For Students! 

    We know our community is going through a difficult time right now. As a school we came up with a project to help brighten our students spirits and help build their home libraries by providing each student a book a month for the remainder of the year! That means each student by the end of the year will have 8 new books! Many staff memembers have been reaching out to the community and asking for their help in this! Currently we have 94 students sponsered and we would like to continue to have this number grow! 

    How can you help?:
    Scholastic offers books for $1 on sale. That means for $8 per student we can provide a book a month for the rest of the school year! Would you sponsor one or more of my students for $8? This is NOT per month!! Just a one time $8 sponsorship that covers a student for the whole YEAR!

    If you want to participate, please call or email Mrs. Redding (  We really appreciate your support and we know the kids will be very excited once their books start arriving. ❤️📚
