Programs and Services
350+ students are involved in school activities including after-school programs, sports and academic clubs.
Marvine welcomes students and their families to these fun family education events based on building literacy skills. Families receive dinner or a snack, engage with teachers while learning new reading strategies, and receive a new book for their at-home libraries.
Boy and Girl Scouts
Both Boy Scout and Girl Scout programs are offered for grades one through five onsite.
Dental and Vision Services
In partnership with St. Luke’s University Health Network, Marvine students receive on-site dental and vision screenings with access to the mobile dental and vision vans.
Girls on the Run
Through United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley and St. Luke’s University Hospital's partnership with Girls on the Run we are able to bring this self-esteem and physical fitness program to third, fourth, and fifth grade girls at Marvine. Students train over a 3-month period to run in a celebratory 5k race at the end of the year.
Through our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters our mentor program helps develop positive bonds between adults and students and reinforces the positive expectations that the family, school and community hope to instill in the child. The mentors and mentees work on homework, projects, or simply spend time together at the school.
Moravian Athletics Program
Moravian College sports teams rotate coming to Marvine on a weekly basis to teach students about playing sports in college, an explanation of their particular sport, and a demonstration. Afterwards the athletes play the sport or related physical fitness activities with the students.
Through Liberty High School's Mini Globe Trotters club, we provide multicultural programming, including lessons on food, language, and geography, to third grade students.
Pen Pal Program
Organized by United Way, Marvine fourth grade students correspond with their peers at other United Way Community Schools within the Lehigh Valley. Throughout the process, students enhance their writing abilities and gain some new friends!
St. Luke's Physical Fitness Programs
St. Luke’s Fitness and Sports Performance provides physical fitness programming for grades one through five on a bi-weekly basis.
The YWCA provides this technology-based program for fourth and fifth grade girls. Participants learn about graphic arts, web design, animation, and robotics and potential career opportunities associated with the technology field.
The school offers community-based after-school tutoring and homework help in math and reading.
Wildlands Conservancy Animal Education Program
The Wildlands Conservancy provides conservation and biodiversity lessons to first grade classes on a regular schedule. Students get the opportunity to meet native species first-hand and learn about the science behind animal behavior and local environments.
This program allows fourth and fifth grade students to explore their creative abilities by learning about the process of playwriting and acting. At the end of the year, one of the students may be lucky enough to have their play professionally produced in the Young Playwrights’ Festival!
