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.

Classroom lists 

Class lists will be posted on the school's front window first-thing in the morning next Monday, July 28, 2014.  We can't publish class lists on the Internet.  Sorry.  

Please remember: We don't have a system in place for taking parental requests for teacher or classroom placements at Marshall 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 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!
