Middle School Academic Challenge
On May 11, 2016, Marathon High School hosted the Monroe County District Superintendent’s Academic Challenge. Six area middle schools competed: Marathon Middle School, Plantation Key School, Treasure Village Montessori, Horace O’Bryant, Sugarloaf and Plantation Key School.  Each team had a 4 member team with 2 alternates. There were three sections, of 5, 10 then 15 point questions on a variety of subjects—history, math, science and English. Mrs. Cox is the coach for Marathon Middle School, and the students practiced once a week to prepare for this competition.  Each student received a certificate of completion, and everyone gained knowledge and had fun challenging themselves and competing with peers.

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.
