Marshall Elementary Weekly E-News

May 12, 2023


School News and Information

Happy Friday!  It is so hard to believe that we have just 10 days of school left.  The last few weeks have been eventful.  We enjoyed seeing everyone at the Marshall Picnic this past Monday, the 5th grade concert on Tuesday.  The students did a wonderful job!


We have our Touch a Truck event coming up on Monday, Science days at Miami for grades 3-5 this week, and Marshall Mayfest on Friday from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. 


Transportation for Next Year

Please remember to sign up for transportation for the 23-24 school year if you live 2 miles or more from Marshall.  If you are unsure if you are outside of 2 miles please complete the form just in case.  If the form is not filled out and returned by June - transportation will not be provided.  


From the Marshall PTG

Mark your calendars! Marshall Mayfest which will take place May 19th from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.


Thank you to Marshall families for sending in donations and volunteering to help at Mayfest!  We’re still looking for volunteers to help with carnival games, the prize room and inflatables.

Volunteer shifts are for half of the event (1.5 hours) - so you can volunteer for part of the event and still have time to enjoy the carnival with your children. Parents, teens, and grandparents all make great volunteers!


We can always take more donations of 2 liters of pop for the ring toss.  


Sign up to volunteer and donate here:


If you have a connection to a community group looking for volunteer opportunities (student groups, scouts, 4H, etc). Please contact Sarah Fisher at about Mayfest volunteer opportunities.

If you have a business or are a vendor and would like to be part of the Mayfest Market or want to be a Mayfest sponsor please complete this form.

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.
