We're calling tonight with several reminders about upcoming events and activities which will take place at the school during the last few days of school in December. Please stay on the line for the next couple of minutes to find out all about what's happening at Marshall School.
We hope to see all of you at our annual PTO-sponsored Cookie Walk tomorrow night, Thursday, December 18th. Children have received tickets to this year's event for logging their reading time and effort. On the evening of the cookie walk, students will also have one last chance to read and receive tickets. The schedule for the night of the 18th will be as follows:
Kindergarten, first, and second grade students may come for reading time to earn additional tickets for the Walk from 5:00-5:30; K-2 students will attend the Cookie Walk from 5:30-6:00.
Third, fourth and fifth grade students may come for reading time from 5:30-6:00 to earn more tickets for the Walk; 3-5 graders will attend the Cookie Walk 6:00-6:30.
Our lost-and-found is overflowing and, after dismissal time on Friday we will be donating all of it to our local charitable organizations. If you child has lost a jacket, hat, lunchbox or other item at the school, please stop by and have a look through our collection of lost items in the Gym.
Please remember: your tax credit contributions make possible all of our one-of-a-kind magnet programs, including an hour of Suzuki violin instruction for all of our kinder, first, and second grade students and our weekly one-hour Magnet Monday electives for our third, fourth, and fifth graders which include Lego League, Chess Club, photo-journalism, ballet folklorico, painting, and creative writing. Without your tax credit contributions, we will be unable to sustain these unique opportunities, which are offered to all of our students free of charge. We hope you will consider making your dollar-for-dollar tax credit contribution to the school before the December 31 deadline. We will gladly receive your donation in person at the school through Friday December 19th. After that, you can make your contribution online or at the FUSD business office which will be open through the end of the month. They are located at 3285 Sparrow Avenue. More information about how tax credit works, and a link to donate online, is available on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com
Last of all, please don't forget, school will be dismissed at 12:25 on Friday December 19th for our Winter Break. School will resume on Monday, January 5th. Second grading period report cards will be sent on on Friday, January 9th.
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.
