PickUp Patrol

GWS is using a system called PickUp Patrol to help us track dismissals. PickUp Patrol (PUP) will save a great deal of time in the office and will reduce interruptions in our classrooms - while also providing parents with a convenient way to make changes to your children's dismissal plans. PUP is a cloud based application that allows parents to electronically make changes from a computer or smart phone.

Please click here for a brief overview of PUP.

Please call the school or email if you need a registration link.

The Language of Behaviors: Understanding Challenging Behaviors

Attention all parents, caregivers, and staff, please join the Marshfield Public Schools for an important presentation:

The Language of Behaviors: Understanding Challenging Behaviors

When: Monday, May 23, 2022, at 6:30 PM

Where: Via Zoom – Click here to register to receive the zoom link

Presenter: Elizabeth Cotter, M.S., L.P.C., Effective School Solutions

How do we evaluate what a child’s behavior is trying to communicate? Behavior is a form of communication which is especially important when a child has limited means of expressing themselves or has neither the developmental level or psychological capacities to “tell us” how they are doing and how we are doing with them. This workshop develops the ability to appreciate and understand the behavioral relevance and messaging of children.
