Welcome to Marshall Elementary!
It sure has been nice to be back at Marshall Elementary! After spending more than fifteen years here as both a teacher and principal, it has been great to be back working with the kids and staff again.
Over the last month the Marshall staff has continued to focus on both the academic and social areas that make it a Blue Ribbon School. As always, there has been a concerted effort to work toward reading, writing, and math success, and also keep in mind the social and emotional aspects that make students well rounded. It is a balance of academic rigor and extracurricular activities that make students shine in everything they do.
Along with the fine teaching staff, I have asked Mr. John Krajewski, Principal of West Middle School, to help on the days I cannot be in the building. He has been an outstanding administrator in Byron Center for the past ten years. John and his wife Sarah both grew up in Grand Rapids and have three children of their own. They both have a strong passion for education with Sarah teaching at Grand Rapids Community College.
Through our partnership we continue to make Marshall an outstanding school where students flourish. I thank you for your continued support in helping your student succeed. It is through the home and school team working in tandem that children are given the best environment to learn.
Thank you again, and please let me know if I can help in any way.
