Marshall Elementary Weekly E-News

March 22, 2019


A Peaceful, Productive, Healthy, and Happy Community

The mission of Marshall Elementary is to work as a community to achieve higher levels of thinking and learning by empowering every learner everyday.


School News and Information

Thank you to everyone who came to last Tuesday’s PTG meeting to hear about the plans for a new Marshall.  We appreciate all the thoughts and feedback that was shared. Many of you plan to attend the Board of Education meeting on Monday to share these thoughts.  The meeting is scheduled for 7:30 PM in the THS cafeteria. All are invited to support these parents and our students.

HCC Vaping Information

Foreign Language/Coding Club/Big Brothers/Big Sisters

Reminder - Next week is Miami University’s Spring Break.  There will be no Foreign Language, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and Coding Club.


Spring Gifted Testing

The Ohio Department of Education requires all school districts to offer two opportunities per year to parents/guardians to have their student assessed for possible gifted identification. All referrals for the Gifted Testing must be done using the electronic form linked below.  Phone calls to buildings or the Gifted staff will be referred to this form. We ask that parents understand that we have to schedule rooms, proctors, materials, etc. and that the earlier a parent/guardian requests testing using this form, the better it is for everyone.


Please note - formal gifted services do not begin until 3rd grade.   All second graders are assessed for gifted services in the spring. Spring Testing requests are due by midnight on March 31st. Referrals after March 31st will be placed on a list for the next testing round in the fall.  Talawanda provides parents/guardians with written notification of any assessment results within 30 days of receiving those results.


Please use this link for registration.  


Children’s Clothing & Toy Exchange

Children's Clothing & Toy Exchange on Saturday, April 10th.  This is a great community event. You can clean out your closets of items that no longer fit & stock up on new sizes.  It doesn't matter how much you bring or leave with, it's open to all. People bring clothing, shoes, toys & baby gear their children have outgrown.  There's usually a table of maternity clothes. If someone has items they want to donate but don't plan to attend, we can arrange a drop-off as well. Use this link for additional information.
