Music and PE.

Musical training helps develop language and reasoning, improves memory, focus and coordination and can be relaxing for students even while challenging. Music is a complex area of study that helps with emotional development, building empathy and can increase self-esteem in students. MPUSD recognizes that the study of music is an significant part of a well-rounded education and has committed the staff and resources to enable this effort.

At Marshall, we currently have weekly music instruction for TK-6th grades. In addition to this, optional instruction in a choice of 7 instruments is offered to all 5th and 6th grade students. The choices are cello, violin, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone and baritone. The district provides instruments to 1300 instrumental students.

Take a look at our amazing music program and our amazing students!

All of our grade levels enjoy PE once a week with a variety of games, sports, and equipment to engage our students and work on their athletic abilities.  On every full day of school, students also participate in a Trek and Connect activity where they are able to connect with their classmates and enjoy walking together as a class.
