Opportunities to Help with the Auction

Opportunities to Help with the Auction

Auction is upon us, with the big event coming up on May 2nd! Much of the work has already been completed by a wonderful group of volunteers, but there are still a few ways to help out for anyone interested in participating.

World Globes Still Needed

The Auction Committee is thrilled with this year's theme of "Global Connections," and to really take advantage of the theme, we could use globes! If you have a world globe that you would like to lend the school for auction night, please stop by anytime in the next two weeks to drop it off. Your name will be placed on the bottom, and it will be returned to you shortly after the auction.

Help With Auction Set-up Next Week

Parents are invited to volunteer a bit of their time next week for auction set-up. Volunteers are welcome anytime between 8:00-4:00 to assist. Check in at the Main Office before heading to the gym!

Bring a Bottle of Favorite Wine or Spirits to Main Office

The wine and spirits wall is always a favorite at auction, and it's the addition of your favorite bottle that makes it that way! Bring a bottle of that merlot that you would recommend to anyone or any other favorite to contribute to the wall. Donations can be dropped off at the Main Office.

Baskets and Nice Containers Needed

The auction has gift cards and silent auction items galore and could still use more baskets to hold them! If you have a basket to donate or lend, drop it off at the Main Office in the coming two weeks.

Any questions, comments, or concerns can be directed to Auction Coordinator Sarah Perry-Spears at sperryspears@marshallschool.org or via phone at 218-727-7266 x259.

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!
