Henry L. Marsh, III Elementary School

Principal's Message

  • Principal Cook

    I am honored to be the first Principal of Henry L. Marsh, III Elementary School.  As the leader of the school, I truly believe that all students can and will learn.  I believe that social-emotional learning is just as important as teaching academic content.  I take great pride in fostering a positive school climate for students, staff, families, and the community.  

    Henry L. Marsh, III Elementary School is a wonderful place to learn. Our teachers and staff are dedicated, caring, skillful professionals. Our parent and community support makes a difference in the lives of our students. Our learning community will continue to thrive through student engagement, equitable opportunities, creativity, responsive teaching, and a collaborative approach with high expectations for all students!

    Over the next few weeks, we will work as a school team to revamp our school vision and mission statement.  As evidenced by our logo we are focused on four core values.  Academics, Citizenship, Monarch Pride, and Social Justice. We are the Marsh Monarchs (kings and queens) and we will work to uphold the legacy of the Honorable Henry L. Marsh, III.  

    One Team, One Dream!

  • The Remind Plan 

    • Henry L. Marsh Elementary is excited to launch the Remind Plan to provide 2-way communications with families and students! 

      Remind allows teachers who choose to use text messaging to communicate with parents and students. With Remind:

      • Parents can choose how to receive messages – text, email or app. For students, texting is available for ages 13 and over.
      • It allows for safe and secure messaging that is available in multiple languages
      • It has a call feature, so teachers may use it to make calls without using their personal number.

      We're excited to make connecting with our families more engaging! Please click here for more information.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - February 26, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! Today was especially joyous for me, as I had the privilege of presiding over our first-ever Mid-Year Graduation for students from the 2020, 2019, and 2018 classes who have returned to earn their diplomas. These 25 young people have redefined what it means to persevere and we are immensely proud of them! The ceremony today is a result of more than a year's worth of work to find students who left RPS, re-engage them through new programs like Con Ganas (With Determination), and support them through every last obstacle. Please join me in thanking the RPS teachers, counselors, administrators, and support staff – along with the students' families! – for making today possible.

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'm thrilled to share that we have a new Chief Operating Officer joining RPS on March 1! Alana Gonzalez has spent her entire career helping government agencies work more efficiently and more equitably. She's coming to us from New York, where she served as Executive Director of Community Reconstruction and Infrastructure for the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery. In this role, she led over 300 recovery and resiliency projects for NY communities affected by Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene, and Hurricane Lee. Ms. Gonzalez also held various roles, including Chief of Staff to the General Manager, at the New York City Housing Authority, which provides affordable housing to more than 400,000 low- to moderate-income New Yorkers.
