We had a great open house Monday night
, it was awesome to see such a large crowd. If you were not able to attend, schedules are available and schedule changes can be made after 1 pm each day with Mrs. Hicks. Parking passes and lockers are for sale and cost $10 dollars. INOW is also available to purchase, $5 dollars.
2011-2012 was a great year academically, reading scores improved by 1.5 percent and math scores improved by 2 percent. AYP was met once again, but Marbury High School is moving forward with ACT standards, college/career readiness, and AP classes.
In the next couple weeks weeks, we hope to make an exciting announcement regarding our AP CAL class and IPADS. As we continue to lead the county in the incorporation of e-readers inside the media center, we are working towards achieving our goal of an electronic library that will allow our students to access a full media catalog from home or mobile device.
As the school grows, we jumped from 3A to 5A, we have been able to add SMARTBOARDS to every core classroom to keep up with the growth, but it has pushed us to our limits in regards to space. As we prepare to try to expand the current facilities to meet the needs of our students, it is imperative that we receive the community's support.
Three simple ways that the community can help the school with funds are through Helping Schools car tags, checkout at Office Depot, and Target Facebook. When you renew your automobile tags, consider getting a helping school tag and be sure to designate Marbury High School as receiving the funds. It costs $15 and MHS receives $11.63 of these dollars and you can personalize these tags for no additional cost. When you checkout at Office Depot, make sure that you tell the cashier to designate the funds to Marbury High School. If you have a Facebook account, please vote for Marbury High School, once a week until September 8th. Each time you vote, it earns MHS $1 to spend at Target. Just type in Target on the search bar in Facebook and pick the "Give With Target App". If you have questions about any of these items, please contact Lisa Barrett at MHS (334) 387-1910 ext. 29003.
The first day of school will be here in a week, let's make this the best year yet. And as always, GO BULLDOGS!
