Once the children arrived, they were given a registration card that had to be filled out at each of the stations. They then received a certificate of participation and a goodie bag. Two drawings were held and prizes were awarded. The bikes were won by two students from John Marshall and the scooter was won by a student from Thomas Jefferson Middle School. The event was organzied by John Marshall teachers and parents also volunteered at the event. We hope next year that more students from neighboring schools will get involved in this important program.The community outreach program was sponsored by PRIDE of Edison Teacher Education Association, Robert Wood Johnson Univeristy Hospital, Keep Middlesex Moving, Safe Kids of Middlesex County, Middlesex County Sheriff’s Department, Edison Police Dept., and Planet Bike in East Brunswick.
At John Marshall School we seek to have each child reach his or her full academic potential. In addition, we have available a wide variety of programs and clubs to assist students in becoming better citizens and improving their self worth. These programs and clubs include Strings, Chorus, Band, Community Helpers, Student Council, Environmental Club, English Language Learners' Game Club, Technology Club, Magical Friends, Brain Teaser, Homework Haven and Fitness Club. The students at John Marshall participate in our Character Education program, designed to teach them the six pillars of having strong character. Our students also participate in activities sponsored by the district wide C.A.R.E.S. program.
We are a diverse community with students representing cultures from all over the world. We have an active Human Relations Committee which works closely with our PTO to plan a wide variety of family-oriented evening programs and daytime assemblies. John Marshall has partnered with the Edison Municipal Alliance. This program works with parents and children to help strengthen the family unit.
We provide our students with a wide variety of opportunities to explore and express their thoughts. We publish a quarterly school newspaper focusing on student writing. Students are rewarded for meeting and exceeding their leisure reading goals through numerous programs.
At John Marshall, we continue to work together as a close knit community of life-long learners for the betterment of our student body.
