Dear Marshall Community,
Welcome, both new and returning families, to Marshall School for the 2019-2020 school year! I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing summer, and that you’re ready for an exciting year ahead.
The Marshall School PTA is a volunteer organization that promotes the partnership between the families of Marshall students and the teachers, administrators, and staff at the school. Our goal is to build a supportive and inclusive community that provides for the educational growth of all our students. This year especially we are focused on a theme of Equity and Inclusion in all of the activities we have planned for the year. We do this through family events, such as our Ice Cream Social, Camp Marshall and Diversity Festival; cultural arts programming, such as our Broadway immersive and Groove on Grove assemblies; community service projects like working with Toni’s Kitchen; sponsorship of academic and enrichment programs, such as online reading and movement software; and much, much more. We hope you will consider volunteering for one or more of these fun and important events! Click here to see the many ways you can get involved.
We bring our school community together both in person and virtually for our PTA meetings, where we listen to feedback, share ideas, showcase new programs, and problem-solve together. We communicate through our website, the new Bloomz communication platform, weekly e-newsletters, and social media. We look forward to hearing from you!
Please renew your membership to the Marshall School PTA and sign up for the weekly email newsletter to stay in the know. Your support of the PTA is vital so that we may continue to support our teachers and staff with engaging speakers, exciting field trips, and enriching residency programs, and other critical resources for our students and staff.
We are incredibly proud of our students and hope that you will join us as we work to share the South Orange/Maplewood spirit celebrating community, art, culture, diversity and all that makes Marshall Elementary such an exciting place to learn!
