The students and staff at John Marshall were once again able to show how they care for members of their community. The Student Council organized a food drive that helped 16 families from John Marshall. We even had some extras that were able to be shared with a local church. Thank you to everyone who donated!!
Mrs. Gluchowski and Miss McDonald's 4th grade class is thrilled to have the opportunity to use Chromebooks in the Classroom. The students are elated to have the opportunity for a 21st Century Classroom, where they enjoy their "Blended Learning." They can utilize online content and tools along with traditional textbooks.
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.
