Welcome to K.D. Markley Elementary School!

  • Dear KDM Families, 

    As the Principal of K.D. Marley Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to a great year at KDM!  

    We are committed to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to provide great instruction daily with the expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We work our hard to meet the needs of each student with an understanding that every child is unique and valued. With that in mind, we strive to keep the connection between school and home open.  At KDM, we will strive to make the learning process a positive and rewarding experience while maintaining a desire to develop a generation of inquisitive young people who will become lifelong students in their various pursuits of excellence. 

    Our community is an important part of our student’s learning experience, and we are thankful for all the support that we receive year in and year out. I encourage all our parents to become active members of our school community.  Please consider joining our PTO. These parent volunteers help to facilitate communication between the schools and the parent community. With your support, our staff and students can have amazing events, school supplies, and extracurricular opportunities.  

    Our staff is looking forward to events including Script to Screen, the 5th Grade Musical, the Science Fair and after-school clubs. It will be an amazing year! To stay active in all that is taking place at KDM, please be sure to visit our website and Instagram(@markleymagic) regularly for current news and upcoming events. 

    We are excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively as a K.D.Markley family.  Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns, at 610-644-1790 or at mhoffritz@gvsd.org. I look forward to working together with you and your family this year. 

    Thank you, 

    Dr. Marshall Hoffritz Ed. D
