Marshall Elementary Weekly E-News

April 23, 2021


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

Happy Friday! We have had another great week even with the surprise snow on Wednesday!  We finished state testing and are looking forward to our final 3 days of in person learning next week.  


From our Marshall PTG - Tuesday will be a Hat Day as a thank you to all our students for your outstanding fundraising efforts this year!


To finish out our in person time, Wednesday, April 28th = FIELD DAY.  Each class will travel together for 90 minutes to a variety of stations packed with fun.  Students should all wear tennis shoes on Wednesday as well as bring full water bottles.  Hopefully we will be outside, so weather appropriate dress is important.  Teachers will be notifying the students of their team color and students are welcome (but not required) to wear that color on Wednesday. This will help them remember where to line up at each station.  We are looking forward to a fun filled day!!


We will also have our 5th Grade Clap Out on Wednesday.  This is a wonderful event for our 5th graders and we want to be able to celebrate their last days of 5th grade as they leave on Wednesday.  Unfortunately we will not be able to have parents come into the building for the event this year.  We plan to live stream the event for families and the recording of it will also be made available.  5th Grade Families - Look for the link next week in your email.   Our car rider pick up will run the same as it always does on Wednesday.  Car Riders will be called to cars starting at 3:15 PM (remember it takes 20 minutes for this process so if you arrive early you need to wait in line or drive past the school if the line is full).  Because of the clap out, busses may load early or late depending on how long it takes.  Think about your child’s normal arrival time at home on Wednesdays and allow for 5-10 minutes on either end for arrival home.  


As a reminder April 28 will be our last day for in person learning at Marshall.  April 29 and April 30 will be asynchronous learning days as staff finish the final packing and relocation of materials.  Beginning May 3 classes will meet via Zoom for remote learning - schedules for each grade level can be found here.  We look forward to a wonderful new facility and the start of a new school year hopefully more like normal.  


Marshall Remote Meal Survey for May


We previously shared information with you about a childcare option through the YMCA and located at the Fitton Family Y in Hamilton that is available during this time of remote learning.  They will definitely be running the program and have room for more students - even if it is only for certain days.  Here is the flyer. 


5th Grade Graduation - Unfortunately due to capacity guidelines for indoor facilities we will not be able to hold graduation at the high school performing art center.  After we counted the students and staff, we would only have room for 1 parent per child.  We are exploring other options but at the very least will hold a virtual ceremony for our 5th graders at Marshall.  This was a wonderful production last year and families could gather in small groups for a watch party this year.  In order to prepare for graduation we are still in need of photos of the 5th graders (1 from Kindergarten and 1 from Now - they do not need to be school pictures).  Please email these photos to Mrs. Slattery -    


Baseball Summer Camp

Talawanda Baseball will hold its annual Baseball Summer Camp for grades K-8 from June 1-4 (9AM-Noon). Details and registration information will be available on Twitter, the Talawanda website, and in each elementary/TMS (digitally and physically) at the beginning of May.
