  • Mindful Hostings

     Many times throughout the school year, Marysville opens its doors to host different groups of educators in order to show how mindfulness has transformed our school.  The groups who visit join us on a Wellness Wednesday as our teachers present a lesson about one of our monthly mindful practices.  By the end of the day, our visitors walk away with a sense of how mindfulness has helped our students become respectful, compassionate, kind, relaxed and ready to learn.

     Greetings Marysville Families!


    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Marysville!

    We hope you enjoyed a wonderful summer.   We are excited to be back together and optimistically looking forward to a great year! Our staff is grateful to be back with our students and families. We are always reminded that they are the reason we do what we do.  We love all of our students, from the first moment we meet them.


    During the 2017-18 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of mindfulness, self-regulation and self-care.  Our mantra remains…  


    Relationships . . . Respect . . . Rigor!


    Community is important at Marysville. We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want and need your involvement and support in your child’s education.  


    Please know that we highly value home/school communication.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings. Be sure to keep the emergency contact information up to date on your student's registration form.  Safety for our students is essential, so K-3 students will be released only to emergency contacts listed on the registration form.


    Please visit our website as it contains important resources for our families. We are constantly updating and adding information that will assist parents and students as we progress through this school year. The school day begins at 8:40 AM and ends at 3:00 PM (K-5) and 3:15 PM (6-8) . Please make every effort to have your child arrive on time each and every day of school.


    I am honored to again be serving as the principal of Marysville School.  We are unique throughout all the country as the flagship school for practicing mindfulness.   It is truly a privilege to be a part of an intentionally Mindful community focusing on well-being for all!

In many school communities, students observed a moment of silence and walked out of class to give voice to their thoughts and feelings. We should all listen.The horrific mass shootings that have taken student lives in recent years have provoked an incredibly important dialogue and created a valuable “teachable moment” for all of us.
