    Student Safety is everyone's first concern.

    Please comply with the school

    policies for safety.

    If you drive your child to school, please note the following:

    Drop Off

    The Valet Parking Drop-Off area in the morning is located in the front of school.  You will not need to park or get out of your vehicle. Please have your child ready to be dropped off as soon as you stop. Valet Drop Off is from 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.  The drop off location is on Wardlow Road.   

    • Follow the directions on the signs and stay within the cones in the drop off area.

    • Please follow the directions of the volunteers.

    • Please have your child’s backpack and other materials ready with your child.  Don’t leave it in the trunk.

    • Say gdoodbye quickly.

    • Please drive slowly and safely.

    • Please exit the drop off zone carefully and be sure to yield the right of way.

    • Please do not drop students off on the opposite side of the street.

    • Please do not cut into the line.

    Pick Up

    After school pick up is very busy in the front of the school. We are encouraging all of you to make arrangements to pick up in the following locations:

                6th grade – In the back of the school on Kildee Ave.     

                7th grade – On the sides of the school on Ocana Av & Woodruff Ave.

                8th grade – In front of the school on Wardlow Rd.

    Please do not double park to pick up your child. It is against the law and you will be putting your child in danger.

    The STAFF parking lot is not for students or parents. It is dangerous for students to be in this lot and not allowed.

    Teacher of the Year

          Allison Akeo

    September 26, 2019

    A Long Beach Unified School District teacher was honored recently as a Los Angeles County Teacher of the Year and is eligible to advance to the statewide competition.

    Allison Akeo teaches math, science and engineering at Marshall Academy of the Arts.  She will be honored at a Board of Education meeting in the coming weeks.

    She begins her day at the classroom door, greeting and fist-bumping students as they enter.

    “Education of today’s students must include educating the whole student, academically, culturally and emotionally.” she wrote in her application.  “Relationship building is just as important as curriculum building.  I believe building relationships with students and making them feel emotionally valued is paramount.”

    Establishing a relationship with students that makes them feel valued allows for a positive school culture.

    “Inside the classroom, I make time and teach students to ask each other about their weekend,” she wrote.  “We talk about our interests and our families.  Initiating a positive classroom community will then spread to the rest of the school.”

    She continually improves her craft and finds ways to help colleagues do the same.

    “The most important skill a teacher must possess is the ability to work effectively with others,” she wrote.  “Through collaboration,  we can gather the best teaching practices and implement them to engage and support all students in learning.”


    Marshall Fitness Room Opening

    Thanks to a generous grant from the UCLA Sound Body Sound Mind program, Marshall has a state-of-the-art fitness center. We celebrated the opening with the Jazz band, cheerleaders, dancers, and various guests.

    Omar Awaida Character Award

    The award was created in remembrance of Omar because of the indelible effects of his character that impacted others. The wake of his passing left a void that was felt by his friends, classmates, teachers, acquaintances, parents, and even those that only knew of him through stories.

    A specific example of Omar's kindness was his inclusion of many special needs students in his circle of friends. He made sure they were in his group on field trips and ate lunch with them as well.

    These stories of unabashed true acts of kindness were done so without any extrinsic incentives; other than to feel the the joy by others knowing that it was simply the right thing to do. In short, the award recognizes those that will carry on his legacy of human decency and pay it forward so that we continue to #livelikeomar.

    The inaugural award recipients were Colin and Jamie, who were voted by their peers and recognized as those that best exemplified Omar's character, kindness, and compassion.

    Student of the Month

    Each month at Marshall, we have a Student of the Month celebration for a different grade level. Parents, students and staff attend the breakfast to honor students who are chosen for their outstanding character, citizenship, or academics.
