Congratulations to Trace Fox for winning today’s drawing for $500 tuition credit.  Carson Hutchison and Rhyder Rippee are our winners for the first and second $500 tuition drawings. Every student registered for the 2024/25 school year will have their name entered for our weekly drawing.  You have one more week to get your name in the pot! Make sure you are registered. The final drawing will be Wednesday, March 6th.

2024/25 Registration: Make sure your packets are complete. Incomplete registration packets will be returned. Priority re-enrollment concludes on March 7, 2024. Open enrollment begins March 18. After March 7, if a student is not fully re-enrolled, he or she will no longer be guaranteed a spot at MA and may be subject to a $100 LATE REGISTRATION FEE

From Linda McKinney, School Counselor: We continue to see demand for our school and receive calls daily from prospective new families who would like to enroll their children. We must be able to determine availability and commit to new families beginning March 18. Remember there is NO registration fee and you must be current with the business office to re-enroll. 

Click this link for the Registration packet for the 2024-2025 school year. Please complete the necessary documents you need for re-enrollment. We have included a checklist of items required to complete this process. Parents of rising 7-12 grade students must submit the Chromebook agreement along with registration papers. Families may start submitting completed paperwork, to the office, on Monday, February 12, 2024. 

No aftercare next Thursday, March 7.

ABSENCES AND TARDIES:  Students are considered tardy if they arrive to school at 8:00 or later. You must bring them to the main office to check in. All doors lock at 8am. Please do not knock on side doors for entrance. You must come to the main entrance and ring the bell for entry. Pre-K thru 6th grade students citizenship grade will be lowered one letter grade if they receive 4 tardies per 9 week period. 7th-12th grade students will receive break detention after 4 tardies, 2 break detentions after a fifth tardy, and In-School Suspension after a sixth tardy per 9-week period.

Please notify the office if your student will be absent. Otherwise they will be given an unexcused absence. If your child will be absent due to a scheduled appointment, please notify the office the day before and send a doctor’s note upon return. Otherwise, it will not be counted as an excused absence.

7-12th grade students are only allowed 10 absences per semester/class. 1st-6th grades are allowed 20 per school year. Overages result in the student not receiving credit for that class/grade.


Teachers will check for dress code first thing each morning. Outerwear worn in the classroom must be Marshall wear. An MA polo must be worn under MA sweatshirts. Any student out of dress code will be sent to the office to call home for a change of clothes. 

Parents please put your students names in outerwear and sweatshirts. These items tend to get lost frequently.



Parents, make sure you are signed in to the Facts Family Portal. You will receive a weekly progress report on Sunday evenings. Use the portal to keep track of absences, assignments, grades and service hours.
