Check out our Book Fair during Parent/Teacher Conferences (Feb 13 &14) in room 105!


Marvine cheered for an exciting basketball game of students vs teachers!

The Marvine Santa Shop provided students the opportunity to shop for holiday gifts for family and friends. Thanks to all the teachers, parents, family members, and retirees who helped children shop for and wrap their gifts. Thanks especially to Lorraine Mattes, Alice Breon, Matilde Garcia, and Margarita Ramirez, our awesome retirees who came back to help!


Marvine’s first Book Blast of the school year was a great success! Our theme was health/ fitness. Parents and students attended classroom sessions to learn about reading strategies to help children at home. Each child selected a free book to take home. There was a health fair in the gym to learn about health programs, nutrition programs, dental services, education programs, community services, and more. Healthy food was provided, along with giveaways and prizes. Thanks to all the teachers, staff, and community partners who helped to make our Book Blast a success!

Beverly Bradley, president of the Cops N Kids Lehigh Valley Literacy Program, came to Marvine School, along with Diane Smith and Michael Young from the Education department of DeSales University. University students studying Elementary Education shared stories with our Marvine students. They also directed reading-related projects in the classrooms and helped each child select free books to take home.

PA Secretary of Eduction Pedro Rivera visited Marvine Elementay school. He was greeted by Bethlehem Area School district administrators and Marvine school community partners and given a tour of the school by student leaders.

We had a great time walking in the Bethlehem Halloween Parade. Thank you to all the teachers, students, and family members who attended!

Halloween fun at Marvine School: Students and teachers walked in a parade on school grounds, followed by a dance party in the gym.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage month, Marvine had a celebration featuring dancing, singing, performances, and delicious food. Thank you to all the Marvine staff, families, and community members who helped make this celebration memorable!
