John Marshall Cadets provided assistance in packing, crating, distributing and even loading their groceries to their automobiles. Jessie Brown provides an open food pantry to all local Veteran’s by conducting a food drive to benefit all Veterans who have proudly served their country.

John Marshall Cadets were motivated and proud to help many Veterans at Jessie Brown. They have become better citizens, effective leaders, and provided a beneficial service to the community. Were all proud of their accomplishments and will continue to support all Veterans.

Student Tardiness
Students must be in regular attendance to understand and successfully complete a course of study; therefore, parents and students should accept responsibility for the student’s attendance. Please be mindful that school starts at 8:00 a.m. Therefore, any student who arrives after 8:15 a.m. will receive an Afterschool Personal Development (ASPD) consequence and must serve it the day that is received. ASPD is held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:13 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. Failure to serve the issued “tardy to school” consequences will result in escalated disciplinary actions.
If you have any questions or concern, please do not hesitate to contact Marshall High School at 773-534-6455 and speak with an attendance personnel. Parents/Guardians should call to report student absence/tardiness before 8:30am.
On January 29, 2015, the Marshall JROTC Commandos performed a Service Learning Project at Jessie Brown Veterans Medical Center in Chicago. Service learning is a teaching method designed to involve Cadets in authentic and meaningful service to their communities. Service learning makes connections between the classroom and the community and provides structured time for Cadets to reflect on their service experiences. It is intended to instill a sense of civic responsibility by encouraging Cadets to assess their impact upon the community as active contributors to society.

Marshall High Cadets visited with veterans throughout the hospital thanking them for their service. They handed out care packages provided by the Red Cross to all the veterans. They listened carefully to all the veterans as they exchanged their experiences while serving in the military. They met with veterans from World War II, the Korean War, Viet Nam, the Gulf War, and the current conflict in Southwest Asia. Veterans were so proud to see Marshall Cadets in uniform thanking them for their participation in the JROTC Program. It was a joyful experience to see our Cadets engage in conversation with many of the veterans. In addition, they talked openly with the hospital staff nurses, doctors etc. inquiring about their experiences with veterans.

As one cadet stated, “I am so proud to be here and I shall never forget this experience.”
