May 25 - Grade 8 Concert
SPREADING KINDNESS & INCLUSIVITY
Our goal was to create a paper chain that demonstrates how united and strong we are as a community.
Here are some great sayings students wrote:
1. I will go out of my way to help others more.
2. Remember to treat others how you want to be treated.
3. Accept people for who they are.
These are great words, Furnace Brook!
Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped make this event a success! We will continue this into next week and run another event soon. We want to promote inclusiveness.
Grade 7 DANCE Highlights
Thank you to the families for all the items donated! The PTO and students are grateful! Thank you to all of the parents who helped to decorate the cafeteria and chaperone the dance! You made this happen! A HUGE shoutout to Mrs. Kate McCabe for organizing this event!

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.

LAST CHANCE TO ORDER A YEARBOOK
Just a reminder that yearbooks are still available for sale online for $26 (see link below). So far, we have 239 purchases. Be sure to order online to not miss out on receiving this year's edition. Every student is pictured in the yearbook, and every student typically loves going from peer to peer to get signatures the last week of school. Don't miss out!
Once yearbooks are delivered to FBMS, online orders will be distributed and any leftover copies will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis purchasable by cash, check, or money order, payable to the Town of Marshfield.
If you have any questions, please contact the Yearbook Advisor, Mr. Whittaker at email@example.com
We currently have limited school loaners available so taking good care of devices will help. Devices should also be charged every evening.
COMING IN TARDY OR GETTING DISMISSED?
If you wish to dismiss your child early from school, please in send a note in with your child. Your child should just stop by the office in the morning with their note, and they will receive a dismissal slip. This limits the disruptions to our students and teachers during class time.
Also, students that are tarty should have a note or a parent walk them in.
Please note that a student should not be tardy more than three times per quarter. After three, we assign a detention for each time.

IMPORTANCE OF ATTENDANCE
Students must be on time (seated in the student’s homeroom by 7:50 AM) and at school every day. If a student is ill, we understand the concern of sending him or her in. Please always consult a physician.
Students who are repeatedly tardy, will be assigned after school detentions, and students who have more than ten unexcused absences, will meet with an administrator, and then further action will take place.
Our Attendance Policy can be found in the Student Handbook (FBMS Student Handbook, pp. 14-16). It's important for students to be here to build the necessary skills they need for success!
