How to keep in touch with Marshall Magnet School

We’re very proud of all of the exciting things that happen everyday here at Marshall School! And we want you to know about them, primarily so that you, as a vital member of our school community, can be here to takepart in them along with us, and also so you can share in our many celebrations, successes, and special events from any vantage point, throughout the school year.

We’ve woven together what we hope is a helpful web of communication tools at Marshall this year. Hopefully, via one or more of the simple means below, you’ll be able to quickly-and-easily keep in touch with us as we work our way through the coming school year.

The Marshall School Blog
The Marshall School Blog, the website you're looking at right now, is a new-this-year addition to our bag of communication tools, and we’re very excited about it. The Marshall School Blog can always be found online at Please refer to it regularly, if not daily, for ongoing, up-to-the-minute news about what’s going on in-and-around our school. You will also find important links to many of our other communication tools (below) on the blog.

The Marshall School Facebook Page
By following us on Facebook you’ll be able to keep up-to-date with all of the posts on The Marshall School Blog, plus you'll see our occasional status updates and reminders in your news feed, too. You can find our page at or simply by searching “Marshall School” on Facebook.

The Marshall School Master Calendar
The Marshall School Master Calendar is updated all the time and will be up-to-date and accurate each and every time you log in. You can link to it from the blog, or bookmark it directly at

The Official Marshall School Website
Marshall School actively maintains an official FUSD school website at On our official school webpage you will be able find contact information for our faculty and staff, visit your child’s classroom webpage, as well as follow links to our blog updates, and find a few neat opportunities to view some of our awesome online student work, videos, slideshows, and more.

Marshall School Connect-Ed
The Connect-Ed messaging system enables us to communicate with you via telephone about school events and other important issues. For this system to function effectively it’s important for the school to have current, up-to-date telephone numbers and email addresses for each family. Please help us ensure we have this data by completing and returning the white Emergency Form card that will be sent home with your child on the first day of school.

The Marshall Magnet school newsletter
For every member of our school community, but especially for our families who prefer it, we will print and publish a trimesterly school newsletter, The Marshall Magnet, during the upcoming school year. To ensure everyone is aware of what’s been happening at Marshall, the newsletter will feature many of our previously published blog posts, plus other new, relevant articles, too. Look forward to it near the beginning of each grading period. The Marshall Magnet issue number one should go home with your child sometime late September.

The Marshall School Marquee
Be sure to check the marquee, located in front of the school building, facing Bonito Street, whenever you drive by. It’s a quick and simple way to get a bit of the flavor of what we’ve got going on and what’s coming up.

Shonto Begay PAWS Sculpture

The Coconino Coalition for Children and Youth delivered our newly completed PAWS Lion last week!  It was painted by renown local artist Shonto Begay and it looks really cool. It's Number 22 in the series.  Perhaps you've seen a few of the other PAWS Lions around Flagstaff?  Lion Number One is installed in front of Bookmans.

What's a PAWS Lion?  Glad you asked!

PAWS - Promoting Assets with Sculpture, [is] a community arts and education project of the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth that is bringing together youth, artists, non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals to highlight the opportunities and resources that our young community members need to succeed

We're proud to be a part of this important community program!

The Marshall PAWS Lion focuses on the theme of School Engagement and asks the question "What do you love about learning?"  Extra-special thanks to Mrs. Perkin's 2010-11 fourth grade class who collaborated with artist Shonto Begay on our sculpture.

For the time-being the sculpture is on display inside the front entrance to the school.  But we're hoping to have it permanently installed out front, for all the world to see, very soon!


New Library Furniture! Thanks Marshall PTO!

The new Library furniture arrived by truck yesterday in eighteen giant boxes.  Once they were all off the truck and inside they nearly filled the entire front entrance to the building!

Our custodians, Jerry and BenDrew, moved all of it down to the Library and got it all assembled and installed the same day.  Thanks guys!

The new tables and chairs are really beautiful and are sure to serve our students well for many years to come. Our abiding thanks to the awesome Marshall PTO for helping us to improve our Library Media Center in such a meaningful way!
