Happy Fall to Everyone,
It is such a joy to announce to our parents that yesterday, we were named an “A” school and also, a Top Gains School in the state. These awards were given based on last year’s, 2012-2013 test score results. I am extremely proud of our stakeholders here for a job wonderfully done. Please congratulate a teacher when you have an opportunity.
The fall is an extremely busy time of year on campus. Basketball and Boys Soccer will soon be beginning. As we continue our hard work in classes, we also welcome some wonderful family opportunities outside of the classroom. On Saturday November 9 at 8:30 am, the Marlin family will join together to participate in the Fall Crescent City Classic at City Park. Any students, parents and friends who sign up by Oct. 30, are eligible to join us as we compete for a monetary award based on how many community member sign up for participation. In the past, this fun event has earned us the funds to purchase a “Wii” lab for our students. You can sign up on line by clicking the link on our website. Please support our school by participating. It’s always a beautiful day and a fun time!
Secondly, on Saturday, November 16, our basketball teams will play Boyet Jr. High at the New Orleans Arena. The Darlin’ Marlin Dance Team and Marlin Cheerleaders, along with Monty, will be performing as well. Tickets for this game may also be used for the Pelicans’ game that evening against the 76ers’. Hope to see you all at these events.
Finally, you should receive an order form on Monday, Oct. 28, for our Fall School Fundraiser which is the sale of Poinsettia’s. All order forms must be in by Thursday Nov. 7th. The student who sells the most poinsettias will be named Principal of the Day. The winning class by percentage sold will receive a picnic field trip to Fontainebleau State Park complete with lunch and games. Top ten sellers will also be invited to the field trip. Last year’s sale was outstanding due to the fact that these poinsettias were absolutely gorgeous. I’m sure you will be very pleased! Poinsettias will be available for pick up on Dec. 9. Consider holiday gift giving for friends, neighbors and family members when ordering.
Come out and celebrate the holiday spirit on Wednesday, December 11 for the band and chorus concerts.
Have a wonderful Fall!
