Welcome to the S. V. Marshall Elementary School's Website

“A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He is going to move in and take over your church, schools, universities, and corporations. The fate of humanity is in his hands.” Abraham Lincoln


S.V. Marshall Elementary School prides itself on providing world-class instruction; creating strong teacher, student, parent, and community relationships; and instilling in children the ability to think, to learn, to achieve, to dream, and to believe. I feel so blessed to be a part of the excitement of learning. 

One of my goals each year is to get to know the students, the parents, and the strengths and needs of our school family. I strongly believe that parents and community partnerships are essential to the success of schools.  I am fortunate to work with a staff that is dedicated and motivated to help children succeed. We recognize that parents are our students’ first and best teachers, and as such need to be a critical part of our educational team. 

Communication between home and school is very important to the success of the school. I encourage each of you to remain active in your child’s education. We look forward to working together for a successful new school year for all of our students.  I can’t wait to meet you all soon and hope that you will get involved in any way that you can.


Proud to be Your Principal,

Bernell J. Saffold
