EDUCATOR OF THE WEEK
Congratulations to this week's Educator of the Week, Mr. Devin Torossian. Mr. Torossian has been teaching History at MHS since 2018 and he continues to have a positive impact on his students in and out of the classroom.
Social Studies Department Head, Ms. Waisgerber, spoke of Mr. Torossian in glowing terms: "Mr. Torossian is a rock star in the History and Social Studies Department at MHS. He’s well respected by peers and students, had the yearbook dedicated to him, been selected to be the keynote speaker at the National Honor Society induction ceremony, and is the junior varsity basketball coach. He comes in every day with positive energy and an enthusiasm that is contagious to all who encounter him. Well done Mr. T - you are very deserving of this honor."
We are fortunate to have him on our team at the MHS. Congratulations Mr. Torossian!!

SCENES FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT
MPSD TO JOIN SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL VOCATIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
In the spring, Marshfield ATM voted to support Marshfield's entry into the SSRVSD. That was followed by each of the eight member districts also supporting Marshfield's application for entry. Now that the state has approved the agreement, MPSD students will be able to apply for admission for the 2024-25 school year later this school year.
In addition to DESE approving the agreement, they also informed the MPSD that we would be able to have a non-voting member on the existing SSRVSD School Committee for the 2023-24 school year. At its last meeting, the Marshfield School Committee voted to have Richard Greer serve in that role. After July 1, 2024, a permanent representative for Marshfield will be appointed to the SSRVSD School Committee.
SSRVSD Superintendent, Tom Hickey, met with the Marshfield Board of Selectmen and the Marshfield School Committee over the past few weeks and spoke about plans to make our students and our community aware of enrollment possibilities. They will be sharing information with our guidance departments and there is an official Open House at the SSRVSD on October 21st.
Superintendent Hickey also spoke to both boards about the proposed building project, which was discussed last spring at ATM. They will start holding informational meetings on the project in towns throughout the District, including Marshfield, later this fall. SSRVSD is looking to have proposals for their project to the Massachusetts School Board Authority (MSBA) by June of 2024 and would bring plans to their member districts to vote on in the spring of 2025.
By becoming a member of the SSRVSD, Marshfield students who have a desire to learn in a vocational setting are going to have the opportunity to enroll in a learning community that best matches their skill sets and future aspirations.
Thank you once again to last Spring's Annual Town Meeting for their support of this initiative.
** A quick update to last week's notice. The Leadership Team at SSRVSD is looking to have an informational meeting with the citizens of Marshfield on the proposed new high school project. They are looking to hold it during the week of November 13th. Final details are being worked out and a firm date, time and location will be shared once they are confirmed.
