GWS Weekly Newsletter

September 16, 2022


Bridges in Mathematics is a comprehensive PK–5 curriculum that equips teachers to fully address state standards in a rigorous, engaging, and accessible manner. Students gain a deep understanding of concepts, proficiency with key skills, and the ability to solve complex problems. Teachers and students at GWS are off to a great start as we implement this program. As you can see from the pictures, students are really enjoying Number Corner, which is skill-building that revolves around the classroom calendar. Number Corner activities provide daily practice as well as continual encounters with broader mathematical concepts. Be sure to ask your students about it as you enjoy a beautiful weekend together!

Go Gold Week

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. To commemorate this, Marshfield Public Schools is going gold!

Next week, your child’s school will be aiming to fill the gold boot (located in the front office) with spare change. All week long, students are invited to bring spare change to put in the boot. All money will be donated to South Shore Action for Hope, who fundraise for pediatric cancer research. Through this fundraiser, we are aiming to give pediatric cancer the boot!

On Friday, September 23rd, all schools in the district will participate in a Go Gold Day. We invited our students to wear yellow or gold on this day to raise awareness of pediatric cancer and close out Go Gold Week.



JOG-A-THON will be held October 18th with a rain date of October 20th! All students and staff receive a T-Shirt courtesy of the PTO. For a $10 donation you can add your family’s name to the T-Shirt as a thank you for your additional support. Follow the link HERE to add your name! Additionally, if you know of local businesses that would like to participate as a sponsor reach out to us @ to facilitate. Sponsor's logos will appear on the back of the T-shirts!
