Hello Marshall families,

We've got a couple of quick reminders for you this evening, so please stay on the line to find out all about what's happening this week at Marshall School.

First of all, we hope you're planning to attend our annual Cookie Walk tomorrow evening, Wednesday, December 16th.  There will be six big circles of chairs set up in the gym and our students will use the snowball tickets they've earned for reading to participate.  Students will walk in two different sessions. K-2 students will walk from 5:30-6:00, and students in grades 3-5, from 6:00-6:30.

Don't forget, school will be dismissed for winter break from Monday, December 21st through Friday, January 1st.  We hope you have a great, happy, fun-filled vacation.

Finally, we want to remind you one last time before winter break: all of Marshall's one of a kind extracurricular magnet programs, like Suzuki violin, chess club, Lego league and many more rely on your annual tax credit contributions to continue. Now's the time to consider making your donation to Marshall in order for it to apply to your 2015 taxes.

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

Goodbye.

We've got just one quick reminder for you this evening.

Please don't forget, we'll be dismissing school early tomorrow, Thursday December 10th, at 12:25 in order to allow our teachers to have a little extra time to prepare this grading period's report cards.

Hello Marshall families,

We're calling tonight with just a couple of quick reminders, so please stay on the line to find out all about what's happening at Marshall during the next couple of weeks.

First of all, we hope you've made plans to forego the dirty dishes and eat out tomorrow, Tuesday, December 8th, because it's 10% Tuesday for Marshall School all day at both Fratelli Pizza locations.  This is a great fundraiser for our school, and we're grateful to the folks at Fratelli for their generosity.  We hope you'll support them and Marshall School on Tuesday.

Don't forget, this Thursday, December 10th, we will dismiss school early, at 12:25, in order to allow our teachers to have some additional preparation time as they compile all the data for this grading period's report cards.  Thanks for planning accordingly.  On Friday, December 11th, we will also release school at our usual dismissal time: 12:25.

We're still collecting canned foods for our annual canned food drive.  And we'll gather everything together, with the help of some very special guests and the Marshall School "marching" Band, this Friday morning at 9:00.  All of the our canned foods will be donated to our on-site Parenting Arizona office and local charitable organizations.

Finally, please continue to encourage your child to read each night and complete their reading log in order to acquire tickets to our annual Cookie Walk next Wednesday evening, from 5:00-6:00 in the Gym.

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

Goodbye.

Hello Marshall families,

We've got a number of important updates for you this evening, so please stay on the line to find out all about what's happening at Marshall school during the next few weeks.

First of all, we wanted to encourage you to attend tomorrow evening's PTO meeting in the library. This group of involved parents plays an important role, supporting the programs, students, and staff at Marshall. There's still time for you to become involved as they plan for events and activities throughout the remainder of the school year. Their meetings always begin at 6:30 and end at 7:30 and childcare is always available. Hope to see you there.

Don't forget, we'll be releasing school early at 12:25 next Thursday afternoon, December 10th, in order to provide our teachers with a little additional preparation time as they complete your child's quarterly report card. School will release at our usual early release time on Friday, December 11th as well.

Students have already begun reading books for our annual Cookie Walk Read-a-thon which will take place at the school on the evening of Wednesday December 16th from 5:00-6:00 in the school gym. Remember to encourage your child to read and complete their reading logs each night in order to acquire tickets to the event.

Finally, we want to remind you: all of Marshall's one of a kind extracurricular magnet programs, like Suzuki violin, chess club, Lego league and many more rely on your annual tax credit contributions to continue. Now's the time to consider making your donation to Marshall in order for it to apply to your 2015 taxes.

More information about tax credit, along with the text of this evening's message, is available on the school blog: www.marshallmagnetschool.com.

Thanks for listening everybody.

Goodbye.
