Students Soared in the Study Island Contest
For the month of October, students in grades 3-5 competed to see who could earn the most blue ribbons. Each week, there were two high scoring students chosen from each grade level. Their names were announced over the intercom and they received certificates. Their pictures were also displayed on office door. It was a close race but the 3rd grade showed how “SUPER” they are by earning 2,144 Blue Ribbons during the month of October. The 3rd grade classes were treated to a frozen treat from Mrs. Hoffman. There were also grade level Study Island super heroes (pictured below). Congratulations to all! At John Marshall we are all SUPER HEROES!!!
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.
