Marshall Elementary Weekly E-News

January 20, 2022


School News and Information

Happy Friday!  We hope everyone had a great week and an even better weekend.


Since it is winter,  if you need assistance with warmer clothing items (hats, gloves, coats), please reach out to Marshall social worker, Mrs. Rolfes or Mr. Hinton.  We will be happy to assist you.


Also, please mark your child's names in their items.  We have a number of jackets, sweatshirts, hats and gloves in the lost and found.  If your child is missing some items, please have them check the lost and found in the cafeteria - we have several items currently in the lost and found.


Please be sure to have a photo ID with you when you plan to enter the building during the day.  This applies to visits and when picking up your child early.


Collecting Coats - Mrs. Rolfes

If you have any gently used coats you would like to donate - Marshall will take them off your hands! Coats will be kept on hand to give to students needing a coat for cold weather and/or recess.


From the Marshall PTG (Parent Teacher Group)

Thank you to everyone who has already registered for our Winter Fundraiser - A Dance a Thon called the Marshall Glowing Dance Party.  If you have not created an account through MyBooster please do so.  Our official kick off day is January 31st but we are already off to a great start.  Families can then send their link to family and friends through email and social media to collect pledges.  This is a great way to get support for our school from out of town family members, friends, and connections.


We are planning a Marshall Mayfest organizational meeting for February 6th after school and 4:30.  We currently need a chairperson and volunteers in order to hold the event.  Please plan to attend if you want to help get this event planned for this year.  


Marshall PTG is sponsoring a Marshall Skate Night at Goggin Ice Arena on Friday February 3rd from 5:45 to 7:45 PM.  This is a free event for all Marshall Families and Skate Rental is included.  Hope to see you there!


Contacting Legislators

Holli Hansel has placed the information on the TSD website regarding contacting state legislators and the governor about school funding.  Please consider taking a few minutes to advocate for fair school funding for Ohio.  The state of Ohio's funding for public schools has been found unconstitutional multiple times.  I will be reaching out to our legislators and please consider taking a few moments to do the same. 


Please consider writing to our Ohio Board of Education, and other state leaders and elected officials.  Check out the talking points and letters we've shared on our district website.

Talawanda Preschool for 23-24

In order to fill the limited spaces in our preschool classrooms, typically developing children will enter the program through a lottery.  Parents interested in enrolling their children in preschool should follow the process described below.  


1) Please fill in the information below by January 31, 2023.  A lottery drawing will be held on February 7, 2023.  At this drawing, we will draw names for the available spaces in our preschool program.  After all spaces are filled, we will continue to draw names to create a waitlist for any future vacancies.


2) Once your name is drawn you will receive a phone call.  We will schedule an appointment for you to enroll and pick up the registration packet from the Nelson Morrow Building. This packet and the first month’s tuition payment will be due no later than April 28, 2023.  If we do not receive these items by this date your space will be given to the first person on the waitlist.


In February our waitlist will be wiped clean. If you have a child currently on the waitlist, you will need to fill out a new application for the 23/24 school year.


Thank you for your interest in our Preschool Program.

Reading at Home (RAH)

RAH will be back this year grades K-5 started today and continues each friday. Use this link to the RAH recording Sheet  For our upper level readers, chapter books count as 1 book for every 25 pages of the chapter book read.  One of the best ways for children to grow in their reading is to read.  Just like the expression goes - practice makes perfect.  RAH volunteers sign up
