Principal's Message

  • Principal Cook

     Welcome to Henry L. Marsh, III Elementary School.  We are the Marsh Monarchs and we want to thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our school.  School looks a little different this year with online learning, but our commitment to providing high-quality instruction, building strong relationships, and attending to the social-emotional needs of our students has stayed strong. Our Marsh Community continues to work collaboratively ensuring that our students and families have what they need to make it through these unprecedented times. 

    When the circumstances allow, we will welcome you into our beautiful new building.  In the meantime, we encourage you to partner with us in the virtual space.  Parent and community involvement is an essential component to the academic success of each and every child.   

    At Henry L. Marsh, III Elementary we hold high expectations for all students and staff.  As evidenced by our school logo we are focused on four core values: Academics, Citizenship, Monarch Pride, and Social Justice.  Our devoted staff is committed to making a difference and we are honored to serve such an amazing community of learners.  We are the Monarchs (kings and queens) and we will work to uphold the legacy of Senator 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.
