As you know, birthdays and birthday parties are a big deal for children. These events are looked forward to with great anticipation.

Please be mindful that invitations of any kind should not be distributed at school when children are present. This leads to hurt feelings and tears if some children are invited and others are not. Please be aware of the potential impact on our students and find another way to invite children to a party that you are giving. Thank you!

Campbell Union School District permits students to carry cellular phones.  However, students may not use  cellular phones during the school day.  This is a rule at Marshall Lane that is also enforced at Rolling Hills Middle School. 

Cellular phones mustbe turned off during the school day and kept in the student’s backpack so as not to disturb or disrupt instruction.   Students who violate this policy may be subject to disciplinary action. The District assumes no liability for the loss or theft of cellular phones.  If your student carries a cell phone, please review this policy with them.

Project Cornerstone Book-of-the-Month #1

This month your student will hear a book titled Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon in class as part of the ABC program. The goals of this lesson for our students are to identify caring adults in their livesdevelop their personal power and believe that they have control over their lives, and increase self-esteem.

Here are some activities that you can do at home to help achieve these goals:

• Boost Each Other Up: Celebrate each family member's special talents and abilities. Go around the dinner table and have each family member say one thing they like about each of the other members.

• Wall of Fame: Create a special place in your house to display items that family members are proud of. Assign a space for each family member. Post items in this space that they are proud of (special drawings, an assignment they worked hard on, photos, etc.). Make sure there is a space for mom and dad, too!

• Have your student "expert" explain the concept of "mud thoughts and clear thoughts" to the family. Have the family practice changing "mud thoughts into clear thoughts."

• Encourage adults at home to have frequent conversations about the caring adults in the lives of youth. Identify who they are at school, in the neighborhood, and in the family. Who are the caring adults for the adults?

Notice It! Name It! Celebrate It!

Each year at the Spring Fling, two parking spaces in the upper lot are part of the Silent Auction offerings. Parents bid on these spaces and then are able to use them for the entire school year. Spaces are clearly marked. Please do not park in these spaces. Thank you!

Our 2019-2020 school year is about to begin! Your Marshall Lane staff is back at work getting ready to make this the Best Year Yet! We need YOUR help in getting your child(ren) off to a good start to set a positive tone for this year.

Here are some important ways that you can help your student(s) to come to school with a great attitude from day one of school.

  • Make sure that your child(ren) get a good night’s sleep and eat a healthy breakfast every day.

  • Organize their clothing, backpack and other items to take to school the night before so they won’t have to search for things in the morning. 

  • Arrive at school on time every day.

  •  Have a plan for lunch and pick up after school.  

  • Encourage your student(s) to do their best at school every day.

  • Talk to them about what they are doing and learning at school.

The best way for parents to ensure that they child(ren) have a good experience at school is to partner with us to ensure a positive attitude and good experiences.  We look forward to working with you to make 2019-2020 the Best Year Yet! See you on August 22nd!
