Whew, and what to do

Well done Marcus High School students!

Congratulations 2017 Graduates!

Take a few days to relax and clear you head. But only a few days! Then:

  • Get a part-time job
  • Do some volunteer work
  • Take a trip, write a blog
  • Read, read and then read something hard
  • Practice, practice and play your instrument
  • Enroll [in] some preparation or enrichment courses

These ideas and more from College 101 – don’t let the name fool you, this is is good for all students!

Back to School Fair Supply Drive

Marcus High School needs your help! Lewisville ISD will be hosting their Annual Back to School Fair on August 5th, 2017. For the event to be a success, schools around the district will be donating new supplies.

Supplies will be used to stuff Kindergarten – 12th grade backpacks that will be provided to registered students at the Back to School Fair.

Here is how you can help:

Marcus HS – one package of 3×5 index cards
The cards can be deposited in the collection box at the front of the building. If you would rather donate a $1.00 or make a monetary donation, the money collected will be used to purchase supplies.
 
Marcus 9 – lined filler paper.
These items can be dropped off in to Marcus 9 office.

 
Any donation is greatly appreciated.

For more information and how you can volunteer to help:

Thank you in advance for your support!

Do the Texas Two-Step to Raise the Age!

HB 122 is stalled in the Senate! The House of Representatives passed legislation that would raise the age of mandatory adult prosecution from 17 to 18 years of age, allowing non-violent offenders who are 17 years of age to be charged as a minor.

Step 1: Call Senator John Whitmire, Chair of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, and let him know we want a hearing on HB 122 to Raise the Age of adult criminal responsibility. You can find the numbers for his Austin and Houston offices below:

  • Austin office: 512-463-0115
  • Houston office: 713-864-8701

Step 2: Click here to email your Senator and Lt. Governor Dan Patrick to ensure the Raise the Age bill gets heard in the Senate.

We need your voices to #backthefuture of Texas children. They are our No. 1 priority!

Thank You!

We have the best teachers at Marcus!

A big thank you for everything you do. We know the hours and investment you make for our children and it is very much appreciated!

Our future is in your hands…

…and we are comforted by this.

Magnificent Marauders

February 9, 2017 @ 7:00p

New Venue: Auditorium

Four times a year each teacher has the opportunity to nominate one student per class to receive the coveted Marcus PTSA award. The student is not chosen solely for academics, but other qualities like dedication, effort, participation and teamwork are all considered when selecting a student. Students being recognized will be notified by a letter sent to their home. Note, the venue change occurred after the mail was sent. We will be holding the celebration in the auditorium.

Recognition from last year:

This student is a positive, cheerful young woman who boosts up those around her. She is a natural leader who has helped her groups do well in group activities. She actively participates in classroom discussions and eagerly volunteers for roles in various classroom activities. Her English skills are strong, so she needs little improvement, yet she is diligent in applying herself and always works actively to do well on her assignments.

Write-A-Check!

Please Write-A-Check
