New Families & First Day Instructions
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new Marshall families!
The goal of Marshall School PTA is to make your family’s transition a smooth and successful one. We organize many events throughout the year to help you and your child(ren) feel welcome and excited to be part of our community.
Please review the calendar and plan to participate in our upcoming events such as our Annual Ice Cream Social at the start of the school year!
Here are some tips to prepare for your first day
We are eager to help you feel at home quickly. The best way to meet people and feel involved and invested is to volunteer for a committee or activity. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact our PTA by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the Get Involved section.
If you haven’t done so already, please sign up for our weekly emails to stay in the know! At Marshall, we are proud to use an app called Bloomz, where you can stay in touch with your child's class, and communicate with the teachers and other parents. More information about Bloomz will be available soon.
What To Send To School
The list of items below will help your child to be comfortable during the school day:
Backpack | A backpack should be roomy enough to transport snack, lunch, and important papers/homework to and from school, but not so big that your child struggles with it. Be sure that your child can open and close his/her backpack (and lunch box) by himself/herself (practice at home). Please check your child’s backpack/folder every day.
Labels | Put your child’s name on his/her lunchbox, snack containers, backpack, jacket, sweaters, etc. Any unlabeled lost items will be put in the “Lost and Found” located on the first floor of the school outside the cafeteria.
Healthy Snack | If your child’s teacher advises you that she/he includes time for snack during the day, please send a healthy snack for your child to eat. Healthy snack ideas include: fruit, cheese, crackers, dried fruit, yogurt, etc. As classmates may have life-threatening food allergies, please avoid sending items excluded by your classroom teacher.
