About Marvin Elementary

Welcome, Marvin Elementary School Families,

We are so excited that you have chosen Marvin Elementary School as your child’s educational destination. It is wonderful to see our students in the classrooms, hallways, and playgrounds filling them with happiness, excitement, and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcome, safe, valued, and loved, knowing that they are a special member of our Marvin Elementary School family. This is a very exciting time in education as we prepare our 21st-century learners for a lifelong love of learning that will lead them to a successful future.

We have an exceptional faculty and staff who design engaging lessons that challenge all students to think critically, use technology, and problem-solving; skills they will use in an ever-changing and dynamic society. Our teachers are leaders who depend on school-wide collaboration and communication to design learning that meets the needs of all learners while ensuring that learning thrives in a safe, supportive, and positive environment.

Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow academically, socially, and emotionally in his or her abilities. Through the use of research-based, best instructional practices and analyzing data to determine student mastery of content and growth, we, along with our students, set goals for development and improvement. We believe it is necessary to prepare all students for the demands of the 21st century, teaching them skills they will utilize to be college, career, and/or workforce ready, as well as the good citizenship skills they will need to make them productive members of society.

I am honored to serve as principal of Marvin Elementary School. It is truly a privilege to be a community partner with parents, teachers, students, and all stakeholders who care for each other and strive to continually build and foster positive relationships that support academic and social growth. The pride in Waxahachie ISD is exceptional and I am honored and grateful to be a member of such an outstanding community. Please feel free to contact me at (972) 923.4670 or at email Christy Bailey
