Got questions about Back To School? We've got answers!

Hello Marshall Community!  The first day of school is just around the corner.  We're very excited to see all of you on Monday, August 13th!

Do you have questions about the beginning of the school year?  Great!  We've got the answers. 

Have a look at our most-Frequently Asked Questions and Answers below:

When is the first day of school?
  • The first day of school is Monday, August 13, 2012.
What time does school start?
  • The first morning bell will ring at 8:35.  Classes begin promptly at 8:40 with the late-bell.  This happens every day.  All year.
When will class lists be posted?
  • We're still in the process of hiring a new teacher or two, but we're hoping to have class lists posted on the front doors of the school on July 30th.
What if I want to change my child's classroom placement?
  • We don't have a system in place for taking parental requests for teacher or classroom placements at Marshall.  That's because our fine teachers, who know your children quite well, spend hours and hours at the end of the school year placing each and every student, by hand, and with very careful consideration, into his/her class for the coming school year.  We do our level-best to give each Marshall student the very best placement possible, in what we believe are the most fairly balanced, diverse, well-constructed, and interesting classrooms in town.  We hope you'll give all of our excellent, unique, and highly qualified teachers a chance to impress you with their talents and ability!
What do I need to bring on the first day?
  • A smile.  A positive attitude.  And a sincere desire to learn and grow.  That's it!  Your teacher will let you know what other supplies you need on the first day.
