Welcome to Marathon Elementary
Opening in the fall of 2018, Marathon Elementary School educates Hopkinton’s youngest learners, preschool through first grade. The building theme, “It All Starts Here,” is a nod to the educational foundation built at Marathon as well as the formal introduction to the Hopkinton Public Schools.
Marathon Elementary School faculty members are committed to supporting the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students. By delivering high-quality core instruction in all classrooms, complemented by targeted or intensive instruction for students who need more, ALL children are provided with the opportunity to learn and achieve the grade-level standards. This collaborative effort is a hallmark of a professional learning community.
In addition to academics, we enrich the physical and social emotional skills of children, including in-school lessons in health and wellness, participating in community service projects, and facilitating the development of social emotional competencies, all contributing to strengthening the character and real-world skills that our students have learned at home. Marathon Elementary School is fortunate to have a well-rounded staff to address all areas of learning, addressing the needs of the whole child.
The Marathon Elementary School parent community continues to support our students in many ways: mystery reading, supporting class projects, organizing books, helping Time for Teachers, joining our School Council, planning for cultural arts or other enrichment activities, and following-up with homework after-school.
The Hopkinton Education Foundation (HEF) and Hopkinton Parent Teacher Association (HPTA) provide generous support via grants and enrichment opportunities, which have contributed to our curriculum and overall running of the school in many ways.
This collaborative approach to meeting the educational needs of our students is essential component of our school. We are a proud and enthusiastic learning community at Marathon.
We look forward to seeing you at school!
