Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! We're looking forward to a great year of learning with our outstanding students!
Did you know...
that Muskegon Public Schools offers a Two Way Immersion Program for grades K-5th. This program is housed at Marquette Elementary School. What is Two Way Immersion? Two Way Immersion creates an environment where English and Spanish-speaking students learn together. These students build knowledge in all standard academic areas by learning in both Spanish and English languages. Children emerge from the program with an appropriate level of bilingualism and bi-literacy. Interested in this program for your son or daughter, contact Mary Scott, Principal, or Amado Perez Assistant Principal at 231-720-2600. We are enrolling now for the fall!

Make an Appointment
The School Wellness Program provides health screenings, health education, counseling, and other health resources to youth through the care of a School Nurse and a licensed Behavioral Health Provider. A signed parental consent is required for your child to receive most services. The School Programs Staff can see patients without a parent present as long as there is a signed consent on file. They can see your child only once with a parent’s verbal permission, which can be given over the phone to a Hackley Community Care School Programs staff member. Please call 231.733.6816 to schedule an appointment

Hackley Community Care School Programs consist of three different models in seven different schools, four of which are in the Muskegon Public School district. The three different models are Teen Health Centers (THCs), School Wellness Programs (SWPs) and Behavioral Health only sites. The School Programs are a model of care for underserved children and youth that increases coordination of medical and behavioral healthcare services. These sites serve as a natural anchor for kids, residents, neighborhoods, and schools.
Hackley Community Care School Programs must abide by all Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) laws for privacy and cannot tell school staff why a child has accessed their facility. Health records are not given to school staff without appropriate releases signed by a parent.
Title I Annual Parent Meeting (Reunión Anual de Padres)
Assistant Principal/Special Education Supervisor-Interim Introduction
Marquette Big Red Families we would like you to join us in welcoming our new interim Assistant Principal/Special Education supervisor here at Marquette. Mr. Luis Gomez...
I would like to briefly introduce myself, my name is Luis Gomez and I have the privilege of filling the role of Assistant Principal/Special Education Supervisor-Interim at Marquette Elementary. I am honored to be in this position and look forward to working with Mrs. Scott, Mr. Perez, and the staff in making this a great year.
I have spent the past 2 years as a Special Education teacher at Muskegon Middle School, however, I have been in education for over 13 years in the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. I am a graduate of Wayne State University where I earned a Bachelor’s in Special education and a Master’s in Special Education.. To complement these degrees, I am completing the requirements for a K-12 Principal’s/Special Education Certificate from Wayne State University this Spring.
My goal is to maintain a positive and safe learning environment for students and staff, where every child is provided the support and resources necessary to be successful in and outside the classroom. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year do not hesitate to call the main office or contact me by email. I believe open lines of communication are extremely important and will work closely with the building principals to address your concerns. I look forward to meeting all of you and working together throughout the year. Go Big Reds!
