Principal's Message

Welcome to Marshall Elementary!

Marshall Family,

The school year has drawn to a close and as I look back on all the things we have
accomplished it makes me proud to be part of the Marshall family. It has been a great year and our students have made so much progress. As our students transition to summer I begin to consider the growth they have made, but also the possibility of regression. On average, students experience more than a month of learning loss over the summer months. This means that many of our students come back to Marshall in September having lost a month’s worth of the skills they learned during the school year. You can help your student(s) avoid this by doing a
few simple things. First, set a goal to have your student(s) read at least 20 minutes per day. Next, try to write at least 1 letter per week to a friend or relative. Finally, practice math facts with your child every week (addition/subtraction for lower grades and multiplication/division for upper grades). We understand that our students need an academic break for the summer, but these few steps can give them a huge advantage at the start of school next fall. There are some additional fun ideas below to try as well.

• Subscribe to a fun kids magazine for your child

• Go to the Byron or Cutlerville KDL library and participate in the summer

reading program

• Spend time at Barnes and Nobles reading books and magazines

• Have your child sort and count all the spare change in the house

• Let them help you write the grocery list

Once again we appreciate your partnership and value all you do to support your
student(s) and Marshall Elementary.

Enjoy your summer,

Chris Ruiter
