Dear Parents & Staff,
As we enter February, I would like to keep everyone updated on all the great things happening at the Marsh.  The students and staff are working extremely hard in the classroom and are preparing for the upcoming MCAS 2.0 Assessments.  There are also a lot of fun and educational activities that will be taking place in and out of the classroom.  I also want to remind everyone to watch for any school closings or delays that may occur in event of inclement weather.  As always, please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.  Thank you for your constant support of the Marsh and our students.
