The text of this evening's robo-call - December 17, 2014


Hello Marshall families,

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.

    We hope you're planning to attend our annual PTO Cookie Walk which will take place on Thursday, December 18th. This year, for the very first time, students will receive cookie walk tickets for reading books.  More information about the Cookie Walk and Read-a-thon will be sent home with your student soon.  Please keep an eye out for it and, if you haven't already done so, consider establishing a time each evening to read books together as a family.

    Finally, we can't conclude a robo-call at this time of the year without reminding you, once again, that your tax credit contributions are due before December 31st if they are to be applied to your 2014 tax return.  Thus far this year, we've only received about 10% of what we received from our donors last year.  Please consider making your contribution to the school in order to sustain our one-of-a-kind magnet programs and activities for another year.

    Our annual Tax Credit campaign begins on Monday, November 3 we will be reminding you several times between now and December 31st to make your contribution to our school.  Remember: your tax credit contribution is a dollar for dollar credit against the taxes you owe the state.  Last year we raised over $40,000 in tax credit contributions, every dollar of which has been used to provide unique learning opportunities and activities to the students at Marshall.  The choice is yours, you can give your money to the state, to be spent who knows how, or you can give it to Marshall School, and we will guarantee it will be spent on your children.  We hope you'll make the right choice.

    Our PTO will meet next week on Wednesday, Nov. 5th at 6:30 PM in the Library.  Everyone is encouraged to attend.

    Our annual, tax-credit supported, fifth-grade Taiko drumming performances will take place next week.  Our drummers will perform for the public on Thursday evening, November 6th at 5:30 PM in the former Flagstaff Middle School gym.

    Don't forget: The school will be closed on Tuesday, November 11th to commemorate Veterans Day.  Monday November 10th and Wednesday November 12th are regular school days.

    Hello Marshall families,

    We've got just a few quick, friendly reminders for you this evening, so please stay on the line to find out all about what's happening over the course of the next few weeks at Marshall School.

    Tomorrow, Wednesday, October 8, is Walk To School Day.  Students with signed permission slips who typically ride the bus to school will have the option of being dropped off to walk from the National Guard Armory on Thorpe Rd along with teachers and other chaperones.  Students who cannot hand the driver a permission slip to exit the bus at the Armory will be transported to the school by bus as usual.

    This Thursday is Picture Day.  Information about ordering pictures from Lifetouch was sent home with your child last week.

    Please remember, next week is Parent Teacher Conference week.  Your child's teacher will be in touch soon, if they haven't been already, to schedule your child's conference time.

    School will be dismissed early on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, October 13th, 14th, and 15th, to accommodate our conference schedules.  We will release students at 12:25 on Monday and Tuesday and at 11:10 on Wednesday.  Please plan according.

    Finally, we hope you've made plans to spend time with your loved ones during our Fall Holiday.  School will be dismissed all day on Thursday October 16 and Friday October 17 for a well-earned four-day weekend.

    Have a nice evening everyone.  As always, if you missed any portion of this message, the text is available on our Facebook page as well as on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

    Hello Marshall families,

    It's hard to believe September's almost over.  The first weeks of the school year have simply flown by.  October is just around the corner, that means it's almost Gallop season!

    We'll hold our annual jog-a-thon fundraiser, the one-and-only Mustang Gallop, this Friday morning, October 3rd, on the field at the school.  Please help your child gather per-lap or one-time contributions for their run. One hundred percent of the monies raised for the Gallop will be used by Marshall for school-wide improvements.

    October is also Parent Teacher Conference month.  Our teachers will be corresponding with you soon to make arrangements for you to set a time for your child's fall conference during the week of October 13.  We hope you will plan to attend.

    FASTWorks, a free parenting class taught by our on-site Parenting Arizona coordinator, Peggy Murray, takes place in the Gym every Tuesday evening.  The group will meet for the second time this year tomorrow evening, September 30, at 5:30.  It's not too late to get involved. Everyone's welcomed.  We hope to see you there.

    Finally, we'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that the entirety of Bonito Street, from the middle school all the way past Marshall, is a school zone during school hours.  The fifteen mile per hour speed limit applies the entire length of the roadway where the curbs are painted yellow.  Similarly, there can be no stopping to off-load students in the red zones in front of the school.  Flagstaff PD patrols our school zone regularly, and both of the aforementioned concerns are ticketable offences.  We thank you for being commonly courteous, for signaling your turns, and for being patient, safe, and aware at all times, whenever you're picking up or delivering your children at the school.  Your child's safety is our top priority.

    Have a nice evening everyone.

    Goodbye.

    Hello Marshall families,

    Please don't forget: Connect-To-School night is coming to Marshall School this Thursday evening, September 11.  We are hopeful that every parent of every student at Marshall will attend this important first-of-its kind event.

    We will meet together as parent and teacher teams on Thursday evening to discuss the remainder of the school year and to set specific learning goals for each of our students that evening.

    Please take note of the meeting time for your child's class.  All of our meetings on Thursday evening will begin promptly as-scheduled and it will be essential that you arrive on time; Connect-To-School Night will not be a drop-in event.  Our kindergarten, first, and second grade families will meet with teachers for 45 minutes beginning at 5:30 until 6:15, and our third, fourth, and fifth grade families will meet with teachers for 45 minutes beginning at 6:30 until 7:15.

    As always, parking is sure to be limited at the school on Thursday evening, so please plan to arrive early, especially if you've RSVP'd for child-care during this event.

    In order for our time together to be most effective, we've asked that children not attend our parent-teacher team meetings during Connect-To-School night. We will be here to provide childcare at the school that night to those families who have RSVP'd. If you returned your RSVP form by the Sept. 8 deadline, we will be ready to check your child in at the front doors of the school beginning at 5:15 and throughout the evening.

    It's our goal to have 100% of our parents turn-out on Thursday night for our essential Connect To School Night meetings.

    We hope to see you then.

    Goodbye.

    Prices for the PTO's Marshall merchandise are as follows:

    Arizona Public School Tax Credit program 


    This key fundraising incentive program works to the advantage of most Arizona tax-payers as well as for Marshall Magnet School.

    Whether you're a single parent, a married family filing jointly, or an more mature couple with grown children, Arizona's Tax Credit program enables you to give part of your annual state taxes directly to Marshall Magnet School, rather than to the state Department Of Revenue.

    This opportunity to provide direct support to Marshall School's unique magnet programs is your chance to make the decision about precisely how your tax dollars are spent to directly benefit your child's, and every child's, public school experience at Marshall Magnet School. 

    It works for us, and it works for you.

    You can make your full or partial annual Tax Credit contribute to Marshall School online at any time time during the course of the year simply by clicking the "donate now" logo below.

    Principal's report to the PTO -- Aug.-Sept. 2014

    We’re off to another good start this year.  Our enrollment is about the same as it has been for the past several years; we’ve enrolled about 570 students in grades K-5 this school year.


    We have several new teachers on staff this year, mostly replacing our teachers who retired at the end of last year.  Ms. Poland, Ms. Hanno, Mr. Bergs, Ms. Foubert, and Ms. Fisk have joined our staff.  Likewise, a few teachers have changed assignments this year.  Ms. Arnold is teaching a fifth, (not a ⅘ mulitage), Ms. Grimmett is teaching fourth (not 3rd), and Mr. McAllister is teaching our technology classes this year (rather than 1st).  Ms. Perkins moved from 2-3 SEI to become our on-site SEI coach and Mr. Axler is our new school psychologist.  In addition to all these new changes, we’ve hired nearly a dozen new paraprofessionals since June to work with our special education services to them as-needed.


    We’re very excited about Connect To School night coming up next Thursday, Sept. 11, which will replace our less-structured traditional Back To School Open House Night with an evening of parents and teachers together charting student progress and goal setting in an effort to enhance and strengthen our partnerships with our parents and thus better ensure student success.


    Magnet Monday will feature 17 different electives this year, including several new offerings.  It will begin on Sept 8.  Suzuki for our all of K-2 students will also begin the same week.

    Hello Marshall families,

    We have a few quick updates for you this evening about a number of upcoming events at Marshall, so please stay on the line to find out all about what's happening at the school over the course of the next several weeks.

    Hopefully by now you've received the first issue of our school newsletter, The Marshall Magnet, and read about our upcoming, first-of-its-kind, Connect To School Night on the evening of September 11.  We're excited to meet as classes with our parent groups that night to partner together in new ways to better ensure your child's success in school.  During our 45 minutes together, we'll discuss student progress, set goals together, and review useful, simple tools and strategies that parents can use to help enhance learning at home.  It will be very different from what we've done during our open house evenings before, but we're confident that, by creating stronger partnerships between home and school we will all be doing what's best for our students. In order for our time together to be most productive, we're asking that children not attend our Connect To School Night meetings.  Childcare will be available at Marshall that night.  Please use the RSVP form at the bottom of the school newsletter to enroll your child and help us get an accurate count of who will be here that night.

    Third, fourth, and fifth grade families, don't forget to return your Magnet Monday Electives Registration Form on or before August 29th.  That's this Friday.  There are some 17 extracurricular classes being offered this year, some returning old favorites like Lego League and a few new offerings like Ballet Folklorico, Speech & Debate, and Photojournalism, too. We're excited to get started with our second year of Magnet Monday on September 8th.

    Finally, for our route 2 and 22 bus riders, please be aware: there will be some minor route changes and stop times beginning on August 28th to alleviate crowding on both of those routes.  We began a few of these changes this afternoon but will be sending home detailed information about the changes that will begin on the 28th with your student tomorrow.

    Thanks for listening everybody.  As always, if you missed any portion of this message the text is available on our Facebook page and the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

    Class lists are still up on the front doors of the school.  Please stop by anytime to check out who will be your child's teacher this year.

    Also, as you prepare for the first day of school, please remember, unless you've made arrangements to have your child enrolled in the FACTS program before and after-school program, your students must not be left at the school before 8:15 in the morning, when we have adults on duty to supervise them.

    Breakfast service and morning recess will begin at 8:15 as well.

    Our first bell of the day rings every morning during the school year at 8:35 and the tardy bell always rings at 8:40.

    When picking up and dropping off your child at Marshall, please remember that students must not enter or exit your vehicle in the red-painted-curb zones in front of the school.  Flagstaff police make regular patrols of our school zone mornings and afternoons throughout the year.  We encourage you to park in either parking lots to the west of the school when picking up and dropping off your child.  Crossing guards are on duty beginning at 8:15 each morning to assist your child safely across the street.

    Kindergarten parents, please don't forget: all of our kindergarten students will eat lunch at 10:30 on the first day of school, Thursday, August 7th, and then be dismissed to go home at 11:30.  You're encouraged to be here at that time to follow your child's bus home.  Remember: an adult family-member must always meet our kindergarten students at the bus stop, every day after school, all year long.

    Everyone else will be released from school at 3:20 on the first day of school.  Likewise, on the second day of school, Friday, August 8th, we will dismiss school at our usual 12:25 dismissal time.

    Once again, before and after-school child care is available on-site for a nominal fee through the FUSD FACTS program.  Scholarships are also available for families who qualify.  Information about the FACTS program can be obtained in the school office or online at www.fusd1.org.

    Thanks for listening, everyone.  As always, if you missed any portion of this message, the text is available on our Facebook page and on our school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

    We're looking forward to seeing you soon!

    Goodbye.

    Back To School 2014 -- Mid-July UPDATES

    Hello Marshall families, 

    Hope your summer is going well!   It won't be long, however, before we're all back together for the 2014-2015 school year.

    We've been hard at work since June hiring a number of new people, reassigning a few others, and putting together our plans for the coming school year.  

    We hope the information below answers many of your questions about the coming year.  However, if we've left something out, or you'd just like to have your question answered by a real-live person, please give us a call... the office will be open 8-4 Monday-Thursday beginning July 21st: 928 773 4030.

    We do our level-best to give each Marshall student the most ideal and beneficial placement possible, in what we believe are the most fairly balanced, diverse, well-constructed, and interesting classrooms in town.  We trust you'll give all of our excellent, unique, and highly qualified teachers a chance to impress you with their talents and ability!

    As a federally-subsidized Title 1 school, Marshall is required to periodically update our community-stakeholders on how the program is being implemented at our school.  Previously, we've been able to update you on the components of our Title 1 Family Involvement Plan and our school-wide Continuous Improvement Plan [.pdf].  

    Below you will find a slideshow which is intended to provide you with an overview of our entire school-wide Title 1 program, how it impacts instruction and student achievement for all students at Marshall, and ways parents can be involved.   The district has also created a helpful brochure [.pdf] which identifies many of the key components of the federal Title 1 program.  We will review both the slideshow and brochure, as well as provide you with an opportunity to ask questions about our Title 1 program, at our May PTO meeting.

    Also, please remember, any time there is a change to your child's normal after-school plan, if, for instance, you intend to pick them up early, have another family member pick them 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 (928 773 4030) 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 (928 773 4030), the front office staff will always make sure your message gets through.

    As always, if you missed any portion of this message, please visit our school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com or our Facebook page to read the text of this message online.

    Thanks for listening.  Goodbye.
