CAASPP testing season began with a special morning assembly honoring the students who received standards met (green) and standards exceeded (yellow) on last year’s CAASPP Test. Each student recognized received a special medal with the corresponding color for standards met or standards exceeded. Three very special students earned perfect scores on the English Language Arts (ELA) and/or Math test last year. Two students received perfect scores on both ELA and Math and one student received a perfect score on Math. These students were honored with a special “Supreme Scottie Scholar” trophy in addition to their medals.

On Monday, May 9th, Marshall students began this year’s CAASPP Testing. The theme for testing this year was the Olympics. On the first day, students were led through a cheer tunnel made up of kindergarten through second grade students. The kindergarten, first and second grade students held up banners and cheered for the testing students. Each class made a banner showing a motivational word for testing. As the students walked through the tunnel, the Olympic theme music played and, at the end of the tunnel, students received a gold medal as a reminder to “Go for the Gold.”

At the beginning of each day of testing, students were shown the “Marshall Motivational Minute” video. These videos were made by sixth grade students and spotlighted the word and color of the day. For example, blue represented perseverance. Each video also gave a few test taking strategies and reminded students to do their best. After the video was shown, students received a colored bracelet that matched the color discussed in the video. The entire school supported the students testing by wearing clothes that matched the color of the day. Also, the campus was decorated with colored ribbons each day and, by the end of testing, the Olympic colors were displayed all over the campus.


Dr. Peter Marshall's parent involvement is thriving! Every week, on every Wednesday, our wonderful parent volunteers can be found generously and tirelessly working behind the scenes in support of all staff members. Led by Marshall’s Parent Involvement Liaison, Mrs. Baltazar, their personal touch has also been appreciated by all - from campus decoration projections to school spirit days and special events - Marshall parents are amazing! Marshall’s parent volunteers go beyond giving back to the school community; they enrich the school community through the friendships and connections they are building with one another. New parents continue to join, and are always welcomed, as training for parent volunteers is always ongoing.

Marshall parents are currently attending the Parenting Partners Workshops. These workshops provide parents practical academic improvement skills to support the classroom teacher. In addition, parents learn family literacy activities and how to create a strong home learning environment. The workshop format is experience oriented and discussion driven so that parents feel respected and engaged. Courses taught include Positive Parenting, Creating Confident Kids, Communication, Creating a Structure for Achievement, and Discipline.

Another focus here at Dr. Peter Marshall is supporting our parents and community members through the English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. ESL courses are provided by the North Orange County Community College District. Classes run Monday through Thursday evening. Parent and community members remain engaged and attend daily due to the wonderful community connections and resources provided. Among those resources, ESL students are provided an array of community services as shared by differing community organizations on a monthly basis. These presentations have been invaluable and enjoyed by all, and it is something parents and community members look forward to every month.

Dr. Peter Marshall School has a place for kids who have a nose for news – school news, that is. It’s the Scottie Chronicle. The school newspaper was started four years ago and is led by Ms. Lehrer, a third grade teacher. The club meets every other week and offers students a chance to put their writing, art, and photography talents to work. Students get a by-line or art credit when their work is published.
The newspaper is published at the beginning of each school year and each following trimester. Students in all grade levels can contribute to the paper. Interested student reporters audition by bringing writing or art samples to Ms. Lehrer, their club advisor.
As junior reporters, the students tell about campus events such as field trips, PTA events, grade-level projects, and new programs. Recently, for example, they’ve written about the remodeled front office, the school garden, Outdoor Science School, and holiday art projects. Parents of the reporters occasionally attend club meetings to lend their support as well.
