Coming Attractions at Marshall School

Canned Food Drive
Our annual school-wide holiday canned food drive, sponsored by our awesome Student Council, officially begins this week and will run through December 14th.  Half the food items collected will go to Northern Arizona Food Bank and half will go to Marshall's own Parents Anonymous & FAST programs.  Classes are challenged to collect the most cans and will compete to win a set of classroom games.  We need a few volunteers to help Ms. McFall and the Student Council members gather all the cans from classrooms on December 15.  If you're available in the morning that day, please let her know.

Door Decorating Contest
The Student Council has also made plans to sponsor a Holiday Door Decorating Contest this season.  The theme for the competition will be The best gift of the season and one primary and one intermediate class will be selected as winners by a panel of adult judges.  The winning classes will earn a cookie-frosting party.

Nutcracker Holiday Performances
