One of our beloved students, Omar Awaida, passed away in March due to injuries he suffered in a hiking accident. For those of you who know him, you know that Omar was an amazing young man. He always had a smile on his face, he was a honor roll student, an actor, a musician, an athlete, a friend and above all demonstrated kindness and compassion to everyone he came in contact with. He was not only a role model to his classmates but showed even the adults how to be a good person.

Many of you have asked how to support the family. We are taking a collection in the office if you would like to contribute.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the Awaida family. May he rest in peace.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we enter the 2nd semester of this year, there is much to celebrate about at Marshall. We have added a specialist teacher and two college aides to work with our English Language Learners. The sound system in the auditorium has been installed and is up and running. We have added a working radio station and a robotics class. We are currently in the planning stages of our art gallery and two school murals.

Each of the past three years, Marshall has won district awards for student achievement. Our students and staff are continuing to work hard in their classes and we are on track to continue that trend. We have so many wonderful activities and learning happening at Marshall, thanks for all of your continued support!

Marshall Academy of the Arts has proved once again to be a focal point for creativity and student success. Marshall Academy of the Arts was respectfully represented by four fantastic art students in the 2014 Norman Gottlieb Youth Art Show on February 27th at the Alpert Jewish Community Center (JCC). This annual art exhibit showcases LBUSD's most talented middle school and high school art students and has a continuing tradition that is in its 30th year at the JCC. A special patron endowment supports this annual art show in an effort to maintain a worthy spotlight on amazing LBUSD student artists. Marshall 8th grade student, Tiana, took home 1st place; 7th grade student, Katelyn, was awarded 3rd place, and 8th grade student, Kaya, received an Honorable Mention for the middle school division. Both Mr. Navia and Mr. Harmon were on hand for this fantastic evening celebrating the artistic achievements of some of Marshall Academy of the Arts finest students.

Congratulations Tiana, Katelyn, Kaya, and Helen on representing Marshall with your amazing talents.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Each year in September, Marshall Academy of the Arts students have the opportunity to view an assembly called Rachel's Challenge. It is a very powerful and emotional character building assembly. The assembly focuses on "kindness and
compassion" and sets the foundation for the year for our students. Please speak with your child about Rachel Scott's five challenges and her essay, "My Ethics, My Codes of Life."

If you would like additional information about this amazing assembly please visit  www.rachelschallenge.org

Marshall Academy of the Arts second annual "Running of the Rams" fund raiser was another great success. With the help of our students, staff, families and friends, we raised more than $8,000.00! These funds will help to support some of the programs and activities at Marshall.
