8th grade students in Miss Domohowski's 5th Major ESL class worked together to brainstorm ideas for their "Letter to Self" assignment. They were up out of their seats moving to various locations around the classroom to jot down ideas for each category: Me Now, My Past, My World, People in My Life, My Future, & What I Do.

The class brainstorm helped spark ideas for their individual organizers which will ultimately guide their letters. The letters will be opened the last day of school in June!

Anti-Hazing Policy Reminder
This is a reminder that it is a state requirement to notify families about anti-hazing policies and laws.  If you have not yet had a chance to read our handbook, a link to the handbook is listed below, in English & Spanish.  The anti-hazing policy and laws are to be found on pages 12 and 13 of the 2016-2017 handbook.   Hazing applies not only to the school day, but to all extracurricular activities and sports.  We thank you for reviewing the district policy and state law about hazing.

Principal Cohen's Monthly Messages

September 2016 | Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year!

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our students need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education.

As partners, we share the responsibility for our students’ successes and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that s/he:
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

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
2) Student recognition events
3) Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

Please review with your child the Lynn Public Schools District Handbook found by CLICKING HERE.

If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact us. 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.

The wonderful Thurgood Marshall Middle School staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you. Please see the procedures for the beginning of the year below.

Welcome To The Thurgood Marshall Middle School Website

Welcome to the Thurgood Marshall Middle School website. It is a privilege to serve as principal of a staff and student body committed to personal growth and academic achievement. My main 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 principle that guides our daily interactions through the development of dignity, respect, effort, attitude 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 2016/2017 school year:

• Teachers will engage in professional collaborative discussions to improve instructional practices that increase cognitive engagement for all students with the implementation of practical strategies.Focus areas include promoting higher order thinking skills and creating opportunities to articulate student thinking.

• All staff will implement an Advisory Curriculum that includes a whole school book read and personal goal setting and social responsibility. The goal of the book read is to increase the opportunity for pleasure reading by making connections to text in a fun, personal way. Advisory groups will be reading the fast paced and popular science fiction novel Gone.

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

School and family partnerships are central to improving academic achievement of our students. Please get involved in your students' academic lives. Being informed will help. Throughout the year our school website, blog, periodic calendars, 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.

Molly Cohen
