Dear Marysville Families
Hooray, we had our first full week of school for the 2023 year. It was hot, and we had our first fire drill, but everyone did amazing.
Thank you to everyone that was able to join us for our Back to School Night Open House. We made the best of the heat and it is always wonderful to connect together as a community. I feel so lucky to work at a school with such great staff, students and families.
In this link you can view our yearly Title 1 presentation.
Feel free to reach out to me anytime with questions, comments or concerns.
Please continue to check the lost and found for discarded jackets and sweaters. Many items are left behind during recess when the weather warms up during the day.
Also our Fruit and Vegetable snack program will begin the first week of October. In the meantime you are welcome to send a healthy snack to school with your child.
Please do not send children to school with sugary drinks or large bags of snack food. We don't allow food to be shared between students at school for a variety of health reasons and we have an ongoing mice issue if food is eaten anywhere besides the cafeteria.
Please contact the office before 2:00 pm if your student dismissal plans change, especially if it changes their bus transportation plan. We don't want to send someone on the bus if you are picking them up and don't want them to miss the bus if you aren't planning on picking them up.
Also, please remind the students that all school behavior expectations apply on the bus. It is important for everyone to be safe at all times.
Student Health Center
As your students return to school, please remind them that nearby Franklin High School has a Student Health Center that is available to all K-12 PPS students. Student Health Centers are like having a doctor’s office at school. Students can get regular or sports physicals, school immunizations, mental health services, COVID-19 vaccinations and testing, prescription medication refills, and lots of other health services. There are no out-of-pocket costs. The following links describe how students can access their closest MCHD Student Health Center and the Benson Wellness Center at Marshall.
PBOT Safe Routes to Schools
Dear parents, caregivers, educators, and community,
By the end of this week, schools across the Portland area will welcome more than 60,000 students back to campuses — wow! As students return to schools and neighborhoods across the city become abuzz with activity, remember to drive at or below the speed limit and with extra caution and attention. Some kids are going to a new school and others are crossing busy streets along the way. We're encouraging everyone to travel safely and to be on the lookout for students of all ages walking, rolling, or taking transit to school.
In this month's newsletter, you'll find plenty of resources to help students and families travel safely to school. We're talking about information about how to participate in the increasingly popular walking and biking school buses and the $500 Metro grants you can apply for to support them, activity ideas and wellness programs for kindergarteners and 6th graders transitioning to new schools, incentives for International Walk + Roll to School Day on Oct. 4, a no-cost Portland Traffic and Transportation course at Portland State University, a new youth personal safety workshop, and more!
