Welcome to Marshall Elementary School

We accomplish the impossible. We believe in ourselves. We set the standard.

 What's Happening in the Hive...

National Fire Safety Month

The PreK and Kindergarten students of Marshall Elementary School enjoyed a visit from The Orangeburg Department of Public Safety during National Fire Safety Month.   Officer Winningham and his co-workers presented a program to the students on fire safety.  The students listened as the firefighter talked about having a fire escape plan.   They participated in exiting to a safe meeting place while at school.   As the firefighter demonstrated his heavy attire the students were in awe.  There were quiet as mice!

A brief discussion on having a smoke alarm was also stressed.  The students got a chance to see and hear the beeping sound of the smoke alarm.   The students enjoyed the presentations.  Students received a SAFETY FIRST coloring book, various brochures on fire safety and a safety bag of treats!  We learned a lot of valuable information from our local firefighters and we truly enjoyed having them to visit our school! 




PreK Visits Oaks Pace Center

On October 31st, Marshall’s Pre-Kindergarten students traveled to the Oaks Pace Center for our second annual Trunk-or-Treat gathering since we have begun a partnership. Students interacted with staff, patients, and residents, as well as, local law-enforcement, Ontime Transport team members, and Chick-fil-A. Marshall’s Pre-Kindergarten students will return to the Oaks Pace Center before the winter break to pass out small gifts to the patients and residents and sing carols.



 Family Game Night

Family Game Night was held on October 26, 2017.  Students and their parents engaged in various educational games.



 A New Look in our Media Center Building 



 Since third graders study South Carolina history, and they have moved to the media center building, we decided we would have a mural which represents much of SC.  Chris Rumble, an artist from Georgia, has painted a beautiful mural of Edisto River with many of our SC animals.  Students are enjoying finding these animals in the mural.

MES Annual Book Hunt

Our Annual Book Hunt was held the week before Spring Break!  This year we were able to allow all students to participate.  Each child was able to "find" 2 books that they took home.








Ms. Zacherl also assisted with the book hunt.

Read Across America Week


Marshall Elementary celebrated Read Across America.  Readers visited the school, students read to a younger buddy, and students read to their stuffed animals after Dr. Seuss's book What Pet Should I Get was read to the students on the morning show.  The grand finale was a character parade.


Wax Museum

Mrs. Irick and Mrs. Thomas's classes created a wax museum.  The wax students come to life explaining who they were and how they were important.


Independent Reading has gone digital at Marshall. In addition to traditional books, our students are participating in a school-wide reading initiative through The American Reading Company. Homeroom teachers leveled their students and have placed "just right" texts on students' iPads. Students' reading levels increase when they have access to "just right" books and are given protected time to read. Please visit to access the eBooks on your home computer, cell phone, or other digital device. Your child's unique username and password can be obtained by contacting your child's ELA teacher.

Marshall Elementary’s Oratory Competition was held Thursday, December 3rd. Winning first place was Sheridan Tucker- Staley from Mrs. Raysor’s homeroom. 2nd place winner was Amya Govan from Mr. Hodge’s homeroom, while Christian Zachary from Ms. Field’s homeroom. Participants provided the audience with dramatic speeches focused on the values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Other participants were Zaniya Huggins, Erykah Hamilton, Kennedy Gunn, Jaiesha Rodriguez, Micah Nembhard, and Kylah Pruitt-Moore. Marshall faculty and staff are very proud of all participants. They did a fabulous job!


    Students at Marshall have been participating in Hour of Code, an initiative led by our school's DRC, Ms. LaToya Glen. Mr. Nicholas Boatwright, Instructional Coach and Ms. Robin Feuerman, Resource Teacher have also assisted in working with classes. Hour of Code is an international campaign to assist students in becoming interested in computer science. Students pledge to learn how to program games for one hour. Computer programming requires students to use programming language and commands to complete a series of tasks.


Marshall Elementary received a $3500.00 grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to Support the annual Book Hunt which will be held in March.
