Update on DVD orders

Hi parents!

Our district Tech department filmed the Vanaver performance and is on the final touches of the Vanaver DVD.  We did it “in school” to help facilitate a learning process for the high schoolers and to keep our prices down.
The We Are Monsters DVDs have been ordered and are on their way soon!
Stay tuned!

Monsters, Werewolves, and Vampires from far and wide are coming to Marbletown Elementary for their annual Monster Cabaret!

We invite you to join our little Monsters next weekend where they are safe to freely express themselves!!

We Are Monsters is a hilarious new musical that follows human kids into a monster cabaret filled with quirky monster characters. The adventurous humans uncover vegetarian vampires and rock n’ roll werewolves, gradually realizing there may be more to these monsters than meets the eye! Most importantly these monsters and kids discover the importance of friendship and celebrating in the attributes that make each of us different and unique.

Sponsored by the High Falls Civic Association

Saturday, Feb. 18 @ 3:00 pm | 1 hr 42 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow (Ray Bolger) that needs a brain, a Tin Man (Jack Haley) missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) to earn his help.

We support seat belts on school buses!


As of 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) made the recommendation that every child on every school bus should have a three-point seat belt and that the position of the NHTSA is that seat belts save lives.


For the safety of our students every child should have a three- point seatbelt!
