Grade 7 Field Day

Grade 7 will be enjoying its annual Field Day on Thursday, June 16th. A rain date make-up is Friday, June 17th.

Students will be grouped by homerooms, competing against each other in games such as Capture the Flag, Kickball, Soccer, Money Basket, Gaga, and of course Tug-O- War. Which homeroom will win?!

The day will include a pizza lunch (provided by the cafeteria) and ice cream from Nona's Ice Cream! Thank you, PTO!

Students should wear (and bring) sunscreen. This is a must! They should also bring a container that holds water (which we can refill), and they should wear their homeroom's class colors. This is always an incredible day for Grade 7! We can't wait!

Thank you, Mrs. Newcomb-Baker, for always spearheading this event!

8th Graders to visit MHS on 6/21

On Tuesday, June 21st, our 8th grade students will attend a tour of Marshfield High at 12:15pm.

Mrs. Bursaw is all smiles!

Mrs. Bursaw is always willing to help students! Looks like her 7th grade students are all smiles too!

Vikings Guest Speaker

Thank you to Mrs. Dawn Massa Stancavish, CEO of Massa Products, who came in to visit her son's cluster to share innovative applications with sonar. Students learned about sonar how sound was used during WW2. Mrs. Stancavish's father, Mr. Don Massa, is pictured below. His dad was a founding father of modern sonar transducers. This was a great presentation and a GREAT experience for our students! Thank you for taking the time to come in and share your knowledge!

That's funny!

Students in Grade 8 English practice satirical skits they have created for their unit on social commentary through satire and humor. A great learning activity and way to demonstrate knowledge! Thank you for your creativity in teaching, Ms. Murrill, Mrs. Kenney, and Mrs. Maillet!

June is here and that means time to return your library books or see Mrs. DeLuca about replacing lost ones.

The library is actively collecting books. If you think you received an overdue notice in error, go to the library this week to do a shelf check.

Students should also bring in and return their Squint books from this past year's OBOS read to their English teachers. If the book is lost, your child will be issued a bill for a replacement. Thank you for your help and assistance as we wrap up our inventories!
