Welcome to Marshall Elementary!

Dear Marshall Families,

 The days of summer are coming to a close and Marshall is a buzz of activity.  We have painted, replaced the carpet, and added some great display areas for student work.  The office is open each day from 8:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00 as well.  Below are some important details for you and your student(s).

Important Dates:

Placement letter will be mailed out on August 22nd.  This will include information about your teacher and open house details.

 1st Grade – 4th grade Open House is on August 26th from 5:30-6:30 pm.  There will be a meeting for families new to Marshall in the Learning Center at 5:00 pm.

 Kindergarten Open House is August 27th from 5:30-6:30 pm.  Details concerning “First Ride” are being mailed home soon.


New Staff:

We are excited to have two new staff members.  Just last week we were blessed to be able to hire Mr. Andrew Smith as one of our 1st grade teachers.  He comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience.  We also have a “New to Marshall” music teacher.  Miss Meghan Hoop will be a great addition to our fine arts staff.  Miss Hoop taught at the secondary level at BCPS previously, but is excited to switch to the elementary level.


First Day Details:

The first day of school is September 2.

 The school day starts at 8:30 am, with drop off starting at 8:20 am.  The doors will unlock at 8:20 am as well.  Our school day ends at 3:40 pm (5 minutes later than last year), with the doors opening for pick up at 3:25 pm.

 We are looking forward to a great year at Marshall.  If you have any questions, please contact the school.
