January 30-February 4, 2023 Marysville Jr/Sr High School
This week you should be hearing from your student or if you are a student reading this, you will be calling home. The reason: student-led conferences on Wednesday, February 8th. Teachers will be in their rooms and students will be asked to attend the conference along with their parents/guardians. The call home will be to set up a time on February 8th for students to do a presentation talking about the first semester, how the second semester is going, and to discuss the classes students want to take next school year. Our seniors will talk about their future plans and scholarships or opportunities to be successful at their next steps. Our goal is to get 100% participation so we need your help. When you get that call, please set up a time to come listen to your student so they can talk to you about their education here at Marysville. Thank you for your help in impacting your student's success.

Top 10 Reasons To Be In School Every Day
1. Better grades. The better your attendance, the higher your grades.
2. Less stress. When you miss school, you have lots of assignments to make up. That's stressful!
3. You learn more. Learning a little every day in class is much better than having to learn everything you missed on your own.
4. More likely to graduate. Students who have poor attendance are less likely to graduate.
5. Time with friends. When you are at school, you can spend time with friends (and make new ones.)
6. Good habits. You'll develop good habits for success -like showing up every day and being on time.
7. Mentors. Your school is full of people who can offer you advice and guidance, like teachers and counselors. If you aren't at school, you won't get the chance to develop those relationships-which means that you totally miss out.
8. Preparation for your future. The knowledge you gain and the skills you develop in school will help you be successful throughout your life.
9. Personal development. The more you're in school, the more you learn. And the more you learn, the more intelligent, capable, and interesting you become.
10. Pride. When you're succeeding in your classes, your parents and teachers are proud of you. But most importantly, you feel proud of yourself - and that's a great feeling!

Teacher of the Week: Mrs. Mary Kessinger-Wassom
Coach K, as most know her, always has a new challenge for her physical education students each week. That attached picture shows a student favorite: dancing. It was fun to watch students get into some new "dance moves" and get moving while having fun! Thanks, Coach K!
Bulldogs of the Week in High School: Miley Grable & Faith Williams
Miley has been a positive influence on her classmates. Miley has also increased her effort in class, giving great attention, getting all of her work done, and also helping others that are struggling. Nice job, Miley!
Faith was picking up after others in the cafeteria. She did not need to do this but wanted to make sure that it was ready for the next students eating. Awesome job, Faith!
Bulldogs of the Week in Junior High: Gabe Antoine & Mitchell Crome
Mitchell is a student that never misses a day of school and is always positive. He sends emails that are always kind and uplifting to me, and stops by my room to say hello. He is nothing but kind to everyone.
