Hello John Marshall Families!

Last week was American Education Week, and I’d like to share how thankful we at John Marshall are for the amazingly supportive families and neighbors we have here. We are so fortunate to have a supportive neighborhood group who provides donations and volunteers, Pilgrim Church, who goes above and beyond to provide weekend food and meals over breaks to support John Marshall families, and our students and their families, who donate food and supplies whenever the call goes out to help our school and students. I also want to call out our staff, who also answer the call to serve and provide whenever asked too!

Also, as we head into the winter season, please plan to send your child with a winter coat, boots, snow pants, gloves/mittens, and a hat each day as we hold outdoor recess as long as it is above zero. If you need assistance getting these warm, winter clothes, please contact your child’s teacher or our School Social Worker, Mrs. Graf ( and we can assist you in ensuring your child has what he or she needs.

We wish you and your family a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Ms. Amanda Patterson
