Dear Marysville Families
Happy Friday and the end of Quarter 2. We are officially half way through the school year. Many wonderful things have already happened this year and we are looking forward to many more. Especially as we prepare as a community to expand and welcome our new students and families from the former Lent Neighborhood program next year.
A highlight of the year so far, was the wonderful Lunar New Year Celebration that we had on Monday. Thank you to all of the staff and family volunteers that organized and participated in this event. The White Lotus Dragon & Lion Dance Team were incredible again and even the weather was perfect to help us celebrate.
Today the Marysville staff is busy preparing report cards and planning for the continued implementation of our new curriculum. I am very pleased by the strong progress in student achievement that I am seeing in our Winter Benchmarking scores. I'm so appreciative for the hard work and dedication from the Marysville Staff and all the support from the Marysville families.
This is such a great place to be!
Report cards will be sent home with the students on Tuesday February 7th.
Successful Schools Survey
Please take time to fill out the 2023 Panorama Successful Schools Survey. This survey is a tool for us to collect your valuable input and feedback regarding how we can best serve our students and improve our school.The survey is completely anonymous.
Our goal this year is to reach 80% survey completion rate amongst our families. Students are working towards school incentives such as a pajama day and a dessert party if we are able to reach this goal.
If you would like a paper copy of the survey, please let the front office know or your student's teacher. If you have any questions about the survey, please visit this website or reach out to our front office. The survey can be completed in 5 district supported languages, English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Somali, Russian, and Chinese.
