• Mathematicians at Play

     What’s the difference between a mathematician and a math student?              

    Come to our Mathematicians at Play Game Night to find out.  

    We are inviting all John Marshall students and their parents/guardians for an informational Math Game Night on October 13th from 6-7pm.  While the students are busy playing different math games, parents/guardians will be learning about each of the Mathematical Practices which are the attitudes and habits mathematicians utilize.  We will also discuss ways to encourage and develop a positive attitude towards math.  The students will receive a list of suggested math games they can play at home and the direction sheets for the games they played at the Family Night.   

    Mathematicians at Play is for John Marshall Students and their Parents/Guardians only.  Siblings that do not attend John Marshall may not attend.


    Registration for this event will take place online.  Please be sure to visit the John Marshall Website for the registration link or visit the link listed below.  We hope to see you at our first Math Family Night of the year.

  • Dear Parents/Guardians:



    Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at John Marshall Elementary School!


    We consider it a great privilege to work with your children and look forward to fostering a challenging, nurturing, and fun learning environment. The staff at John Marshall places an emphasis on collaborating with each other so that students are receiving the best instruction possible. We believe that all students have the ability to succeed both academically and personally and we look forward to working with the students to accomplish this goal.


    Community involvement is a key component to the success of students at John Marshall. I would like to invite everyone to be a part of our school community. We welcome and encourage parent volunteers and hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities available to you. By joining the PTO, you will have many opportunities to participate including attending/volunteering at PTO events, working in classrooms, chaperoning field trips, and more.


    Please take a moment to review the parent handbook online, as the school policy regarding birthday celebrations has changed. It is full of important information and will help you and your children have a successful year.  It will provide you with some of the basic information about our expectations, common procedures, and norms at John Marshall.


    As we begin another year, I would like to be the first to say “Welcome Back!” I am honored to be the principal of John Marshall Elementary and look forward to working with our talented educators, supportive parents, and amazing students again this year. Thank you in advance for making John Marshall a wonderful place for children to learn.


    Looking forward to an awesome year!


    Ami Hoffman

Welcome to John Marshall


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.
