Hello Marshall families,

As we draw nearer to the end of the school year, there are still a number of things that we'd like you to be aware of.  So please stay on the line for the next minute or two to find out all about what's happening at Marshall during the first few weeks of the month of May.

First of all, we hope all of our kindergarten, first, and second grade parents have made plans to attend our 16th annual Heritage Square violin performance this Thursday afternoon, May 5th, at high noon. Bring your sunscreen or your parasol and be prepared to be amazed as 300 young violists showcase all that they've learned in our one-of-a-kind, award-winning, tax-credit-supported Suzuki violin program this year.

Don't forget, there will be no school this coming Monday, May 9th. That day was reserved as a snow-day makeup day on this year's school calendar and, because it was unused, school will be dismissed all day on Monday.

Finally, we hope you already know Marshall Magnet Elementary School strives to provide the very best education possible to all of our students, each and every day. But, we'd like you to tell us how we're doing. Our annual Family Satisfaction Survey is available online in English [https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FUSD16] and in Spanish  [https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/FUSD16SP]. Links to the survey, as well as the entire text of this message, are available on our Facebook and on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

Thanks for listening, everyone.

Goodbye.

Hello Marshall families,

As of today, state-mandated standardized testing season has officially begun at Marshall for all of our third, fourth, and fifth graders.  Testing sessions will take place during the school day at various points over the course of the next three weeks.  At Marshall, we like to imagine testing season is GAME DAY, the point-in-time we have been training and practicing for all year... our best chance to shine, and show what we know!  Each student at Marshall has been provided with handouts and flyers indicating when their specific testing sessions will occur during the month of April. We appreciate you making every effort to have your healthy, well-rested, and well-fed child in school on their testing dates in order to avoid the need to have them make-up their tests at a later date. If you have questions about testing, testing dates and/or testing times, please contact the school office or your child's teacher.  We'll be happy to fill you in on the details.

It's never too late to get involved with our most-excellent Parent-Teacher Organization.  They'll meet again to continue planning for the coming 2016-2017 school year tomorrow night from 6:30-7:30 in the school library.  Everyone's encouraged to attend and childcare is always available.

Finally, To-date, you've generously given $39,844 dollars to our school to help us support and sustain our magnet programs.  With a little over a week to go, we've optimistic we'll receive the $156 we need to make our annual $40,000 goal.  Please consider making your contribution, a dollar for dollar credit against the taxes you must otherwise pay to the state, before you pay your 2015 taxes.

Thanks for listening, everybody.  More information about our tax credit program, as well as the text of this message, is available on our Facebook page and on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

Goodbye.

Hello Marshall families,

We've got just a couple of quick updates for you this evening, so please stay on the line to find out all about what's happening at Marshall School over the course of the next couple of weeks.

First of all, we hope you'll make plans to eat out at Fratelli Pizza this Tuesday, March 29th.  As they've done before, Fratelli will donate 10 percent of all of their proceeds for the entire day on Tuesday to Marshall School.  As always, we're super grateful to Fratelli for making this very generous donation to our school.

Don't miss our annual Suzuki violin performances this year.  Our kindergarten, first and second graders will showcase their abilities this week at the Hurley Theater at Flagstaff High School.  Everyone's welcome, but seating is limited, so be sure to arrive a little early if you hope to get a seat.  Our kindergarteners will perform tonight, first grader will perform tomorrow night, and second graders will perform on Wednesday night.  All performances will be from 5:30-6:30.  Hope to see you there.

Planning ahead, if you can't make it to these performances, you'll have another chance to see our violinists play on May 5th at high noon at Heritage Square downtown.

That's about it.  Thanks for listening, everybody.  As always, if you missed any portion of his message, the text is available on our Facebook page and on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

Goodbye.

Hello Marshall families,

We're calling tonight to wish you a happy, safe, and healthy Spring Break and to let you know: the office at Marshall School will be closed throughout the break, from March 14 through the 18th.  We'll see all of you back at the school on Monday morning, March 21st.

We hope you've made plans to attend our annual PTO Family Fitness Night at the school on Wednesday, March 23rd.  From 5:30-7:00 that evening over 30 vendors will be at Marshall with fun and interactive activities like Zumba, Flag Football, Aerial Arts, Swimming Drills, Dance, Yoga, Basketball and lots of free Raffle Prizes, too! Bring the whole family and come dressed to sweat!

Finally, when we get back from break we'll only have a few weeks to go until tax day on April 15th.  Marshall School is still about $3500 shy of our annual fundraising goal this year.  If you haven't already made your tax credit contribution to Marshall, it's not too late.  You can still make your donation up to the time you pay your 2015 taxes. Remember, your tax credit dollars are a credit against the taxes you must otherwise pay to the state. Without them we cannot sustain our one-of-a-kind magnet programs, artists and scientists-in-residence and fieldtrip experiences.

More information about our tax credit program, as well as the entire text of this message, is available on our Facebook page and on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

Have a great Break, everyone!

Goodbye.
