Marlette Elementary News
From the Principal's Desk
We are also in our standardized testing season for our third through sixth grade students. While these tests are important indicators for state accountability purposes and we always hope to do well, there are more important things in life than one test given on one day of a child's life. If you have any questions about testing, please give us a call, 635-7427. All schedules are available here.
Online Bully Reporting
Color Run 2019
State standardized exams are coming. I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well. Please remember, among the students who will be sitting for the tests there is an artist who doesn't need to understand Math. There is an entrepreneur who doesn't care about History or English literature. There is a musician whose Chemistry marks won't matter. There's an athlete whose physical fitness is more important than Physics. If your child does get top marks, that's great! But if he or she doesn't, please don't take their self-confidence and dignity from them. Tell them it's OK, its just a test! They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them that no matter what they score, you love them and will not judge them. Please do this, and when you do, watch your children conquer the world. One exam or low mark won't take away their dreams and talent. And please, do not think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.
