    Dear John Marshall Families,

    On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to John Marshall Elementary School where students are provided with a nurturing environment and are challenged to reach their maximum potential. Our instructional focus is Reading Comprehension. Our teachers are dedicated professionals committed to providing our students with exciting and rewarding educational experience that will prepare them for their future. 


    The following are a few things you can do to support your child's academic growth:


    1. Ensure that your child arrives to school every day, on time, and is ready to participate and learn. Every minute counts!


    2. Make every effort to be involved in your child's academic day. Communicate regularly with your child's teacher and attend school meetings and events. 


    3. Read to your child daily or have your child read to you. Ask your child questions about what he/she read. 


    4. Encourage your child to demonstrate his or her best inside and outside of school. 


    Together we form a strong partnership to ensure that all students at Marshall move forward in their academic endeavors to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, effective communicators, and exceptional members of this diverse and ever changing world. 


    I thank you for your partnership and look forward to seeing our families at school events.
