     Mrs. Walker
     
    Welcome to Marshall Elementary, a successful elementary school with a solid foundation of excellence! I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning families. The teachers, staff, and I are looking forward to working with you and your wonderful children this year. We strive to continue providing an exciting and rewarding educational program for each and every child at Marshall.

    Our educational goal is to make learning exciting so that students will experience the joy of discovering new ideas and building new skills, while developing a love of learning that will create “life-long learners.” My priority is to ensure the quality of our programs by being in classrooms and supporting our instructional program. Our instructional focus is reading comprehension with our motto: “Reading Makes Us Roar! Reach Out and Read.”

    Marshall is a school with strong traditions. Our school is known for its academic excellence, its outstanding teaching staff, and strong parent and student support. Our positive school culture is contained in our school’s mission statement:

     John Marshall Elementary is a culturally diverse and caring community with dedicated and nurturing staff and students who are committed to a school environment preparing all students for their future.”

    Our Staff focuses on positive, caring, effective approaches in building self-esteem by teaching children respect for themselves and others. Students are provided many opportunities to develop and demonstrate self-discipline and responsibility on a daily basis.

    Working as a partnership, the students, parents, staff, and community commit themselves to developing the social, emotional, academic and physical well-being of all children. Our school takes pride in rewarding and recognizing the accomplishments of our students. We believe it is imperative to nurture a positive climate by valuing diversity, empowering others, maintaining high standards, rewarding improvement, and celebrating success. School spirit is an essential element in a successful learning environment. Let’s “Roar to Success” with the Marshall tigers!

    We look forward to a year of meaningful instruction and much success. Families are encouraged to participate in all areas of the school program that suits their interests and schedules.

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Carla Walker
