STUDENT SUCCESS: Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success.

We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college or career readiness programs
7) Gets involved in extra-curricular activities such as Math Team, intramural sports, National Junior Honor Society, Girls Empowerment club, Project YES!, Amazon Robotics, Drama club, and a plethora of other clubs

PARENT INVOLVEMENT: Please consider joining our PTO program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations.

We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:
1) School-wide events such as dances and fieldtrips
2) Student recognition events
3) Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your child’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. Please feel free to review the Student/Parent Handbook which can be accessed on the lynnschools.org website.

Welcome To The Thurgood Marshall Middle School Website

It is an honor and a privilege to serve as principal of a staff and student body committed to personal growth and academic achievement. Our primary goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. Our mission at TMMS is to instill in our students the DREAM principles that guide our daily interactions through the development of dignity, respect, effort, achievement and motivation. We believe that by adhering to the basic ideas embedded in these five concepts, our students will become well-rounded and civic-minded individuals. Through hard work and dedication, we can accomplish our dream of becoming a high performing middle school.

In our efforts to provide effective instructional practices and well-developed school structures that support student achievement we will be focusing on the following initiatives for the 2018/2019 school year:

• Teachers will engage in professional collaborative planning to improve instructional practices that will increase cognitive engagement for all students with the implementation of data informed instructional strategies. Focus areas include promoting higher order thinking skills and creating diverse learning opportunities for students to engage in rigorous learning tasks.

• All staff will implement an advisory curriculum that includes personal goal setting, commitment to social responsibility, and sustained silent reading. The goal of Advisory is two-fold: to build personal relationships where students start to learn their responsibility to self and the community and to increase the opportunity for pleasure reading by making connections to text in a fun, personal way. Advisories are a supportive, non-academic setting where students can connect learning with life.

• The Principal will implement a Principal’s Coffee once a quarter to invite community members to discuss school initiatives, offer feedback and share questions or concerns.

School and family partnerships are central to improving academic achievement of our students. We encourage families to get involved in students' academic lives. Please join us in making this the very best experience for your children. Being informed will help. Throughout the year our school website, school calendar, and newsletters will provide you with the most current information.

We look forward to working together to ensure that all of our students meet their full potential.

Welcome to the Thurgood Marshall Middle School Council Webpage

About School Councils

A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
