Greetings! I know it seems like this is my topic of conversation each and every newsletter, which should let you know the importance of ATTENDANCE! We continue to have a difficult time reaching 95% daily attendance. We need you to make this a reality! Most elementary schools in our Network average 95% daily attendance, therefore I know with your assistance, we are capable of reaching this goal. Please continue to do your best by sending us your children each and every day. We look forward to attaining this goal!

Once again, we are about to launch our Marshall Perfect Attendance Challenge (M-PAC) once again. All students that have perfect attendance from May 1 – June 18, 2015 (Just 33 school days!) will have their name entered into a raffle to win all kinds of great prizes such as, Gift Cards, Sporting Goods, Cash, etc. Parents of all winners will be rewarded too. So make sure your child attends daily. The classrooms with the most 100% Attendance days during this same time period will be treated to a special classroom surprise.

 The PSSA has come to a conclusion but our assessments have not concluded. We look forward to the results in just a couple of months. Students in Grades 3-5 will participate in the School District’s Benchmark Exam beginning May 13th. All students in Grades K – 5 will participate in an End of Year Assessment the week of June 8, 2015. The End of Year Assessment will measure your child’s academic growth from the beginning of the school year until now. This assessment will also be forwarded to next year’s teacher. It is very crucial that both staff and students attend regularly in preparation for this very important assessment.

The next seven weeks are going to be action packed, so check with your child nightly about upcoming events and activities at John Marshall School. We look forward to Field Day on June 4th (Rain Date – June 5th) and the Grade 5 Awards Recognition Luncheon on Tuesday, June 16th.

 Until we talk again, PEACE!

Our Core Beliefs

  We will:

  • Ensure that there is a system within the school that fully ensures consistent implementation of effective instructional practices that meet the needs of all students across all classrooms and aligns with the Pennsylvania Framework for Teaching.

 • Ensure that there is a system within the school that fully ensures school-wide use of data that is focused on school improvement and the academic growth of all students.

The Vision of the John Marshall School is one in which all learners grow and succeed in a school community that values and accommodates diversity. We believe our students are our greatest resource and therefore entitled to a high quality education. We adhere to the belief that it is the responsibility of the school, parent, and community 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.
