Hello John Marshall Families!

Our staff appreciates the positive feedback you shared via the spring School Perceptions Survey administered by the district. We think it is great that at least 90% of our families who responded to the survey feel comfortable reaching out to at least one staff member and feel that we have appropriate opportunities for parent involvement! Our Building Leadership Team is seeking some additional information from you so we can better serve your child and family. The results of this survey will help us to plan family events and help us better support you as you support your child in their academic and social-emotional progress.

Please access the survey at this link -

Thank you in advance for your feedback!

Ms. Patterson & the John Marshall Staff
