The text of this evening's robo-call -- August 26, 2014

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.
