Marcus Matters


Coming Together to Start the New Year

Marcus staff spent two days of August staff development learning together while building and strengthening our relationships. Thanks to the hard work and open minds of our staff, it was a great two days getting ready for our students - Working together to build capacity through meaningful, relevant experiences and a shared pride in the excellence of our staff and students - Marcus is a true learning organization!
