Marysville's new home will be about five miles away in the old Rose City Park Elementary facility, which closed in 2007 as part of a district consolidation. To get ready for classes next week, each teacher will work with someone from the district's curriculum department to help with lesson planning. Those assistants also will help the teachers put up bulletin boards in their new classrooms and make copies of whatever they need.
