Happy Friday! We're calling tonight with just a couple quick updates to ensure you know all about what's going to be going on at Marshall over the course of the next few weeks.
First of all, we've got great news for our third, fourth and fifth grade students: Magnet Monday, our one-of-a-kind extracurricular electives program, begins on Monday! From 2:10 to 3:10 every Monday our intermediate students will be participating in Lego League, photo-journalism, painting, ballet folklorico dancing, Mastermind, and STEAM Team, as well as and nearly a dozen other unique endeavors, all taught by a collaboration between our awesome teachers and a host of local professionals, artists, and scientists and supported by your annual tax credit contributions to Marshall School.
We hope you've already made plans to attend our second annual Connect To School Open House Night on September 10th. Parent and teacher teams will be meeting together in every classroom that evening to review student achievement data, set goals, and establish strategies to strengthen our home-school relationships in order to boost student achievement for all. Childcare will be provided at Marshall for families who RSVP ASAP. Look for the form at the bottom of the Connect To School flyer to be sent home next week.
Don't forget: Monday, September 7th is Labor Day. There will be no school that day.
Finally, if your family has not already completed the pink federal free-and-reduced price meal form, please do so and return it to the school office as soon as possible. Marshall School receives crucial assistance funding from based on the number of families at our school who qualify for this program, funding which benefits every student in every classroom.

That's it. Thanks for listening, everyone. As always, if you missed any portion of this message, the text is available on our Facebook page and on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.
Have a nice weekend. Goodbye.
