MEETING NOTICE

 

Marathon Lutheran School – Working Together to Help Marathon Families

Marathon Lutheran School and Martin Luther Chapel will be cohosting a meeting at Martin Luther Chapel, 325 122nd Street, Gulf (behind the NAPA store) on Sunday morning, March 18th at 9:30 a.m. (rear entrance).

The purpose of the meeting is to inform interested parties about the community’s need for early learning facilities for Marathon’s children, and how Marathon Lutheran School is working to help address those needs.  The school currently has 30 students, with several families on a waiting list.  They are working to increase their student body but require additional staff and some facility upgrades to accomplish that.

Some of those improvements will be addressed with grant monies recently received to improve the school’s playground and add new areas to accommodate future needs, such as an outdoor classroom and a dedicated area for one year olds.

Invited guests from the City include Michelle Coldiron, Marathon’s Mayor, who will share with the attendees the depth of the need for facilities to help care for and educate Marathon’s young children, especially in the wake of Hurricane Irma.  The need for such facilities is widespread within Monroe County, but particularly Marathon, where 56% of our families fall within low income guidelines.

Michelle will be joined by representatives from the Monroe County Early Learning Coalition who will answer questions and provide more details on the value of programs like those at Marathon Lutheran School and other similar facilities, in helping to meet our community’s very critical needs.

The public is encouraged to attend this important meeting to learn about how they can be involved, including employment and volunteer opportunities, and ask questions of our panel of experts.
