As you know from your web training, the school websites have features that enhance communication with your families. One of these features is how news is sent to subscribers via email.

While your printed newsletter may go out 2-to-4 times per month, the website also generates weekly news blasts (a weekly digest of changes posted that week) that go to the people who subscribed this year. (Only people who subscribe this year will get the email.)

The first test of this automatic email feature is scheduled for Friday, 8/28, at 6 a.m.

Please keep in mind…

A.          There are not very many people subscribed at this time (fewer than 200), so now is a good opportunity to activate the feature and test it.

B.          We hope that you will work toward having some kind of new information posted each week—calendar items, a photo and caption, etc.—to keep your website current and interesting.

C.          If you have not already done so, please let your parents know about subscribing to receive your school news via email each week. There’s a link for this on our school website home page or at

Marshall Lane Elementary School’s a new website is more attractive, easier to see on mobile devices (e.g. tablets and smartphones), and more user friendly than our old site. Now you can easily check the events calendar, find school news, contact our staff, see what’s for lunch, and much more. You can even change the language. 

We’ll be refining it and adding new features as time goes one. For now, we invite you to take a look around, try it out, and let us know what you think. Thank you!

Dear Marshall Lane Community Members,

Welcome back to school, for all of you who are continuing at Marshall Lane.  To those of you who are new—welcome to our school!  It is a fantastic place to be and I know that you and your child/ren are really going to enjoy it here!

As we begin the new school year, I hope that you will consider joining the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at Marshall Lane.  This group does so much to enrich the children’s experience at school that they are invaluable partners.

I also hope that you will attend all of the important events that are coming up this month.  The first one is tomorrow—Friday, August 21st.  It is a Back to School Family Picnic that will take place on the upper field from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy some socializing with other Marshall Lane families.  Jamba Juice will be sold along with slices of Round Table pizza. I will see you there!

The next event will be on Wednesday, August 26th.  It is Back to School Night for our Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes.  This is an important event for our TK & K families.  It takes place from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. We hope to see all of our TK & Kindergarten parents there.

 Back to School Night for students in first to fifth grades will be held on Wednesday, September 2nd from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m..  We hope to see all 1st to 5th grade parents at this event.

 I am excited about this new school year at Marshall Lane.  Enthusiasm and optimism are in the air.  Here’s to a great 2015-2016!  Let’s work together to make it the best year yet!

I am pleased to report that our entire talented group of teachers will be returning to Marshall Lane this year, with the exception of one teacher. Ms. Andrea Lawryk decided to return to Rosemary where she did her student teaching. She will be teaching 4th grade this year. We wish her well.

Former Campbell Middle teacher, Kim Sisemore will be joining our 5th grade staff. We are very fortunate to have a former middle school teacher at our school to assist us in preparing our students as they move on to 6th grade. Please join me in welcoming her into the Marshall Lane family.

Also joining our teaching staff this year are three teachers from Rhythm & Moves, an outside agency that assists us in providing preparation periods for our teachers.  Tavia Harwell and  Sky Swab will be teaching p.e. to our students. Linda Jacoben will be teaching music along with our district music teacher, Sharon Rosen.  Our preparation periods continue to been aligned on Mondays and Wednesdays to allow more time for our teachers to collaborate during the school day and still provide the students with the correct number of instructional minutes.

Thanks to everyone who helped to make the first day of the 2015-2016 school year such a smooth one. 

Many of our teachers came back from their well-deserved vacations early to begin preparing their classrooms for your children.  They worked tirelessly to get ready for the year to begin.  We are grateful for their dedication and strong work ethic.

Our PTA has already held two events—Kindergarten Round-Up and the First Day Back to School Event for our community.  They are a group of very energized and intelligent folks who want what’s best for our school.  Thanks to them for all of their hard work so far on behalf of our students.

At Marshall Lane, we practice Positive Behavior Intervention and Support.  This is based on the STARS expectations that we have for all students.  STARS stands for:

  • Show Respect

As you may have noticed, there have been some changes at our site over the summer.  In response to the need to conserve water, several grass areas have been replaced with artificial turf.  It looks wonderful.

Also in process is the replacement of our old sign in the lower parking lot.  A brand new electronic sign will be installed in about six weeks or so.

Although we love animals, our campus is not the proper place for them.  Dogs are not allowed on campus during the school day or before or after school.  Please respect this rule to protect all of our children.

Our upper field is open to the public at night and on the weekends and, as a result, we have noticed a lot of piles of dog excrement that are left on the grass.  This is problematic since students step into these piles.  We prefer that dogs are not at school. If you do bring your dog onto the campus when school is not in session, please clean up after them.  Thanks so much!
