The text of this Friday evening's robo-call

Hello Marshall families,

We hope you all have a great winter break. We'll see you back at school on Monday, January 6th.

When we return to school, please remember, if there is a change to your child's normal after-school plan, for instance if you intend to pick them up early, have another family member them pick up, or if you're planning to have them attend FACTS on an atypical day after school, please be sure to call the school office to notify us of this change.  It's a great idea to correspond in writing with your child's teacher in their daily agenda about such things, too, but it's absolutely essential to notify the front office about such important matters.  Planners can get lost, but if you'll call us with your change of plans, the front office staff will always make sure your message gets through.

Finally, if you haven't yet made your tax credit contribution to Marshall School, there's still a little time.  Our school offices will be closed during the holiday, but you can make your donation online on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com simply by clicking on the round red 'donate now' button, or you can mail your check to the Flagstaff Unified School District office before December 31.  The FUSD mailing address is 3285 E Sparrow Ave, Flagstaff, AZ 86004.

Have a great break and a happy new year, everyone!

Mrs. Stern's Cross-Cat Talent Show

Among the many things that make Marshall School so special is Mrs. Stern's cross-categorical special education classroom.  The students in this remarkable program each have challenges which require support from an array of highly-trained personnel who work with them throughout the school day, both within Mrs. Stern's classroom as well to assist them as they are included on a daily basis in mainstream classrooms and in special-area (Art, Music, PE, and Technology) classes.  On Magnet Monday, many of their grade-level peers also collaborate with Mrs. Stern's students to provide them with additional assistance and opportunities for interpersonal interaction.

Mrs. Stern's students held their annual Talent Show recently and we're proud to say each student turned in a marvelous performance.  We've embedded a video of the Show below and we hope you enjoy watching as some of our most-special students, support-staff members, and their grade-level peers showcase their many talents.



Bravo!
