Save the Date — January 8th!

The Marshall PTSA has invited representatives from the FCPS Facilities Department to come discuss the future of our school and the entire pyramid.
This event will take place in our auditorium at 7pm on Monday January 8th.  This will be a unique opportunity to ask questions of these members of the FCPS staff and to get a sense of what they are anticipating for the future.
We will have food and drink available for purchase that night, provided by our very own Davis Center.

Give Us Your Clutter!  And We Take Donations too!

We Want Your Clutter!
Saturday, January 6, 2018 
9am to 12pm
Marshall High School Front Parking Lot
Drop off your unwanted goods (soft goods: clothes, sheets, towels, linens/fabric, shoes, purses, accessories, jewelry, as well as hard goods: books, household items, unwanted home décor or Christmas decorations and anything you normally give to Goodwill or Unique). No furniture, baby items, TV’s and mattresses. We will have a truck ready to load with your donations. DONATED GOODS IN TIED GARBAGE BAGS WORK BEST.  Goods are weighed by the pound and Class of 2018/All Night Grad gets a portion $$ for what we donate. We do get more $$ for the soft goods. Tax receipts for 2017/18 are available.
Again – we cannot take furniture, baby items, TV’s and mattresses.
Tell your neighbors and friends. This is a great way to raise money while de-cluttering your home and a great time for students to clean over break!
