6th Graders Debut Class Musical, "Tom Sawyer"

6th Graders Debut Class Musical, "Tom Sawyer"
holly.mirau

Each year, Marshall 6th graders come together for a couple months between holiday break and February to put on a special class play. This year's group is debuting "Tom Sawyer," a musical. Every 6th grade student is involved in the making of the musical, most acting, but with several working the lighting and sound and still others participating in set design.

Today, Middle School students were invited to the dress rehearsal, where they were the first audience to get a glimpse into Marshall's take on the classical town of Hannibal, Missouri, and the adventurous pair, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

Tomorrow, March 5th, everyone is invited to the final performance at 4:00 PM in Fregeau Auditorium. Tickets are free, and the performance is open to the public. We encourage everyone to come to the school and support these hardworking students!

Topper Tunnels

One of our traditions is to send state bound students off to their competition with a "topper tunnel." where all students line the front hallway and cheer for their classmates. Some of the teams and activities honored recently include:

  • Math League
  • Dance
  • Robotics
  • All State Music
  • Tennis
  • CyberPatriots

There might be plenty of paths from Korea to New York City's theater stages, but Paul Yoon may have taken one of the longer routes. The 2016 Marshall graduate started his journey in our Fregeau Auditorium and now finds himself at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.

Many people feel this is the best time of the year because of all the holidays, celebrations, and cheer as we wrap up another trip around the sun. More than a few others celebrate lists this time of year. Top moments of 2017, top movies of 2017, top sports plays of 2017 ... all those year-end lists give us chances to compare, contrast, debate and delve into a year's worth of memories. We're lucky at Marshall to have Kim Kosmatka as our photographer. She's talented, she's the best at capturing those "Marshall moments," and she knows our school and students so well! We've asked Ms. Kosmatka to put together her 17 best photos from 2017, and we'll be unveiling one per day leading up to 2018. The first photo, along with a bit of insider info from Ms. Kosmatka, will be on our Facebook page December 15. Be sure to head there each day to see this list unfold. And, since it is the giving season, be sure to give our Marshall School page a "like" and a "follow" if you haven't yet. Let's also spread the cheer to those outside of the Marshall community (and, in turn, give Ms. Kosmatka some much-deserved love) by hitting the "share" button on these fantastic photos images for which we are so thankful!
