Message from the principal

Dear Families,

            It is with great pleasure that I welcome each and every one of you back for the 2014-2015 school year.  If you are new to the John Marshall School Community, we welcome you with open arms. Our district continues to work with less and less, yet despite all of the turmoil and dismay, we still have an obligation and commitment to fulfill to the children of Philadelphia whom depend on US everyday.

            Our test scores and student progress have once again hit an all-time low and as a result, we are now in “Priority” status with the state. We must once again find it within ourselves to dig even deeper to develop meaningful structures, routines, and procedures while strengthening what we have found to be our successes. It is also extremely important that we build meaningful parent partnerships in an effort to create a safe, caring, and respectful environment that nurtures a student’s self-esteem, fosters problem solving, creates life-long learners and produces productive citizens who are positive contributors to society.

Please know that this handbook is a valuable resource, read this document carefully as you will be held accountable for the contents herein and keep it readily available for quick referencing throughout the school year.  I am sure that it will answer many questions for you.  Any policy or procedure contained herein, which you do not understand, should be brought to the attention of the administrator or any staff member.

I am looking forward to reaching new heights as we “Aim for Excellence” for every child, everyday, every hour, every minute, and everywhere at the John Marshall School.  Remember, “Children Really Do Come First” and it does “Take A Village to Raise a Child”, without teamwork our children cannot achieve at high levels, therefore I wish each and every one of you a healthy, productive and rewarding school year.

Sincerely,

 

Carla R. Glover-Principal
