Marshall Elementary Weekly E-News

January 6, 2022


School News and Information

Happy Friday and welcome back!  We hope that everyone had a nice winter break.  The students returned to school and got back to work.  The teachers have reviewed expectations and jumped back into the learning as we prepare for the second half of the school year.  


The weather has turned cooler.  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.  


From the Marshall PTG (Parent Teacher Group)

Our next PTG Meeting is on Monday at 7:00 PM in the Marshall Cafeteria.   


Kids Night Out is next Friday, January 13th from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.  Registration forms were sent home before break.  So we can plan accordingly, please return your registration forms and money ASAP.  


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!


Finally we are getting ready to kick off our Winter Fundraiser - A Dance a Thon called the Marshall Glowing Dance Party.  Families will create an account through MyBooster starting the week of January 17th.  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.  Be looking for more information in your email and thank you for your participation.   


From Talawanda Baseball

Talawanda Baseball is sponsoring its annual Winter Youth Clinic this January 15-16 from 10 AM-12:30 PM. Please see the attached PDF for more details!


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.

BroadbandOhio Alliance

The Federal Communications Commission recently released new broadband maps that will be used to determine the amount of funding Ohio will receive to expand broadband access throughout the state. To improve the maps and ensure Ohio receives as much support as possible, we need your help!


By Jan. 13, 2023, we need as many Ohioans as possible to check the federal maps, and if there is an inconsistency, submit supporting information.


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.
