Dear Marathon Community Members, I will be leaving my position as Superintendent of Schools at Marathon Central School District at the end of July. I have accepted a new position as the District Superintendent at Broome-Tioga BOCES beginning August 1, 2022. It has been an honor to serve as superintendent to the students, staff, and community members in Marathon. Over the past 11 years, I have been made to feel as if I were a member of a very large family. Our faculty and staff have worked tirelessly to provide the education our students deserve. I am proud of the progress we have made toward the goals in our strategic plan. I am grateful for the kindness and compassion our students and staff displayed during the COVID 19 pandemic. I am honored by the patience and understanding our community has shown as our district strived to provide the best educational environment possible during very trying times. I would like to thank each board of education member who I have worked with over the past 11 years. Your trust in the leadership and staff at Marathon has helped our district to grow. I wish everyone in the Marathon community well as I move on to Broome-Tioga BOCES. Sincerely, Rebecca Stone

There is currently a vacancy on the Board of Education of the Marathon Central School District (the “Board”) due to the resignation of a former Board member, occurring on May 26, 2022. To fill the seat in a manner that most enfranchises School District voters, the Board has determined to fill the vacancy by special election to be held on August 17, 2022 pursuant to Education Law § 2113(1). The voters will elect a person to serve out the balance of the former board member’s unexpired term of office, which expires on June 30, 2024. The special election will be held at the Marathon High School CSE Office between the hours of Noon to 9 PM. In accordance with law, the District will publish additional information regarding the special election four (4) times within the seven (7) weeks preceding the election in the School District’s official newspaper, the Cortland Standard. This information will also be available on the School District’s website. Interested candidates should contact the District Clerk’s Office by phone ((607) 849-3117) or email firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the requirements for filing nominating petitions.

We are thrilled to share that two of our students earned spots in prestigious opportunities this summer! Sam Castellot will be at the University of the Virgin Islands for two weeks studying his passion: aquaculture and environmental science. He is only one of twenty students accepted through a rigorous application process, including having a number of his teachers write letters of recommendation for him. This program is part of the USDA’s AgDiscovery outreach program. Sam’s hope for the summer is that he will learn and have fun! Chris Baez will be participating in the Appalachian STEM Academy At Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He will be studying computer science with scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Getting to Tennessee will be the first time Chris flies in an airplane! This program is sponsored by the Appalachian Regional Commission. Congrats to Sam and Chris - we know you will represent Marathon well! Have a great time this summer!
Reminder: Wednesday, June 22nd, is the last day for Marathon UPK-6th grade students. Wednesday is a ½ day for elementary students. Dismissal time will be 11:35 AM. We hope all students have a wonderful summer.
Our 4th grade students had a fantastic time this week on their field trips to AgStravaganza at the Cortland County Fairgrounds and an end of the year picnic at McGraw Rec. Two great experiences for our students!
