Marshall Road ES Activities
Activities Sponsored by Marshall Road
The CARES Team is a group of students who work together on a number of community service projects throughout the school year. Any interested 5th and 6th graders with a passion to serve are encourage to get involved! The CARES team is led by 6th grade teachers, Mr. Jones and Ms. Ratzenberger.
Marshall Road is committed to building strong minds, bodies, and characters in all our Roadrunners. One way we help our students to become positive contributors to our community is through a partnership with The Positivity Project. The mission of The Positivity Project is to empower our students to build strong relationships by understanding, appreciating, and living out 24 character strengths in us all. Over the course of the year, students will learn to recognize and develop these positive traits in themselves and others, focusing on a new character strength each week. We hope you will ask your children about these traits and help them to understand how to become model citizens in our community. Together we will create stronger citizens and leaders who will enhance our community by internalizing the belief that, #Other People Matter.
Safety Patrols play a vital role in daily life at Marshall Road, helping to keep the school a safer place for everyone. Over 50 sixth grade students volunteer and are selected by our patrol sponsor, Mr. Robeson, and are assigned to posts within and outside of the school building, on school buses, and at school crossings. They also assist kindergartners to and from class each day, raise and lower the flags, and assist with silent dismissal.
Roadrunner Report News Show
The Roadrunner Report is the morning news television program at Marshall Road. It airs every morning on our closed-circuit channel 6 at 9:20 a.m, with live anchor reports on Mondays and Fridays. Fifth and sixth graders apply for news crew and anchor positions at the beginning of the school year, and are selected based on interest, availability, reliability, and school behavior.
The news crew members report daily and operate the camera, two computers, and the audio and digital video mixers, as well as contribute to the script for the live shows on Mondays and Fridays. News anchors appear live on camera to read weekly announcements on the teleprompter and must have a great on-air presence. The Roadrunner Report is a great way to start the day at Marshall Road!
