School leaders discuss importance of making connections
Jan. 6, 2020 -- Last year, a task force of parents, teachers and administrators set out to update the school district’s 25-year-old mission statement.

A logo emblazoned with just three words that embody the goals of a Marcellus education: Connect, empower and ignite.
In the video below, school leaders describe what the first word – connect – means to them and how they’ve been challenging teachers and students to make connections every day since the 2019-20 school year began.
