News from Mr. Martin

Hi Marshdale Families,

I hope you had a nice snow day and long weekend. Thank you to our PTA for coordinating with EPRD for some fun Ice Skating. Just a few announcements from me this week:

Conference Sign Ups: You should have received an email from your child’s teacher on Friday requesting you to sign up for conferences on either the evening of the 11th or some time on the 26th. Please let me know if you didn’t get this and we’ll get it remedied. These conferences will be held virtually so we hope scheduling for siblings isn’t an issue. 

MAC: Marshdale Accountability Committee will meet on Tuesday, March 2nd, @ 5:00. We will be discussing how the snow day process worked, the 2021-2022 remote options, the new building, spring plans for Art, Music and PE, and our upcoming state assessment, CMAS. Please complete this form if you normally don’t receive an invitation and we’ll make sure you get the link.

Marshdale Spring Auction

As most of you know, Marshdale Elementary is getting a new building and construction is set to begin Spring 2021. Thanks to the generosity of our voters, the bond measure that was passed will pay for this new, state of the art building as well as many of our technology needs.  Unfortunately, there is a small gap in funding between our needs and our wants. To fulfill our technology wishlist, the school community will need to raise funds to outfit our school and students with the kind of technology that will put our students on a path to success. 

 Every year, Marshdale PTA holds a Spring Fundraiser to raise funds for our school.  This year’s fundraiser will be held April 14th-16th as an online auction.  If you, or your business, have a service, activity, or product that you would be willing to donate, we would love to include it!  Your donation can generate a lot of talk, interest, and excitement during the event. Donations both big and small...we are always so grateful for the unique and diverse items we receive. Our students and teachers need our support, and your tax-deductible donation would be sincerely appreciated.  We do understand that right now is very uncertain for many of our local businesses and families.  If you are able and willing to donate to our auction, we would greatly appreciate it but if you are not in a position to donate at this time, we completely understand.  

 Please reach out to Marshdale Elementary PTA ( if you would like to donate or have any questions!
