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!

    #BetterTogether!

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - December 3, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, This evening, I’d like to preview the recommendation I’ll be making to the School Board on Monday regarding the second semester. Before doing so, I want to express my profound gratitude to the nearly 10,000 families and staff who responded to our surveys, as well as the hundreds of people who reached out to me personally to share their thoughts. I also want to thank our educators and support staff, our families, and most of all, our students, for showing each other so much grace over the past several months. Though our fall has been far from perfect, I do believe we managed to #ReopenWithLove and we should all be immensely proud of that. At Monday’s School Board meeting, I will recommend that we remain fully virtual for the second semester. I plan to do so for three reasons. First, given rapidly rising infection rates, I continue to be very concerned about the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. Just yesterday, the United States experienced the highest number of COVID deaths and hospitalizations ever. Here in Virginia, we also hit a new high for hospitalizations.
