Tips for Success

The second nine-weeks is well underway. Here are a few helpful hints:

1. Log into your child's Schoology account weekly to help support his/her work and learn more about the Learning Management System. This will add a nice check and balance to their learning experience.

2. Check HAC weekly and reach out to teachers as needed.

3. Virtual learning is a 9-4:30 expectation just like in-person learning, so the same expectations are in place every day regardless of learning location. We need students engaged every period, every day.

4. If your child is struggling, contact the teacher, counselor, or administrator, so we can help create a plan for progress and success. Even if you child is behind right now, help us re-engage him or her so we can help.

5. Lastly, if you have questions, please reach out to the school and ask us. We are here to help and very much want to support the success of our families.

Progress Reports

Progress reports for the 1st 3 weeks of this 9 week grading period will be available in HAC on Monday, November 9.

Picture Day

In person students will be having yearbook pictures taken through their Social Studies classes on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 12 and 13. Virtual students will schedule appointments to come to campus on those days and have their pictures taken.

Donate Blood

Attention Marshall High School, we need your help! As the Holiday's approach us and Covid-19 still on the rise blood donations have been difficult. You can be a HERO and save a life in these unprecedented times. All donors will have access to our on-line store and will receive a $10 HEB gift card for donating blood! You will also get a free antibody test as well. All donors MUST sign up for an on-line appointment. For patients who need blood during a pandemic, it’s a 9-1-1 situation.

Blood transfusions and the support of her family is how Hagan manages the long wait for her second liver transplant. Her family hopes there will be no more delays. However, COVID-19 has limited blood drives and donations and she can’t have her transplant until the hospital has blood on hand.

This is why your donation at our upcoming blood drive is so important to patients in our community.
