Important Reminders and Procedures For the New School Year!

Closed Driveway Policy and Procedures
Student safety continues to be a high priority at TMMS. We implement our “No Parking” guidelines. In the interest of security and safety for students and staff, our driveway and parking lot is closed to parents and guardians. Keep your children safe by following these guidelines and reviewing them with your child. Brookline Street is a one way between the hours of 7:15 AM until 8:15 AM and 2 PM until to 3 PM. Driving in the wrong direction endangers the safety of pedestrians. Police take notice.

Drop Off Procedures
- Supervision is provided starting at 7:15 AM. Please do not bring your child to school before that time since there is no supervision.
- All parents and visitors must report directly to the school office. The office personnel will provide assistance in an effort to keep classroom interruptions to a minimum.

Only students may enter the school through the main entrance located at the front of the school on Brookline Street from 7:45 AM until 8 AM.

The doors will be locked at 8 AM and all students who are not on campus by that time will need to enter through the office and be marked tardy. Students who arrive tardy 4 or more times will serve detention.

Regular attendance to school is critical to academic achievement. Students who are ABSENT 7 or more days in a marking period will FAIL all their classes for the quarter.

Please help your child to be successful by making sure your child is well-prepared and on time for school each day. Thank you for your cooperation, patience and flexibility.

September 2017 | Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!


Welcome to the 2017-18 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


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
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. A few upcoming dates to acknowledge:

August 1, 2017

This is an exciting time of the year for our school community. After lots of planning and organizing, we are will kick off our second full school year in the new building. This year we will welcome nearly 1,300 students to attend classes in our state of the art facilities and beautiful environment. The intent of this flyer is to provide neighbors and families with information that is key to making the transition to the school year as easy as possible. Please make sure to look it over and remember to check the TMMS website and blog for updates and changes. I am honored to be leading this effort and to know that our success relies on the participation of everyone.

Warm regards,
Molly Cohen, Principal

When is the first day of school?
The first day for Grade 6 is Wednesday September 5, 2017 at 7:45. This day will be only the 480 grade 6 students. Our staff will be ready to welcome our students on the morning of September 5th. We will be outside helping with the movement of cars and pedestrians. We ask that you bear with us as we expect unanticipated obstacles here and there. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

The first day for Grade 7 and 9 is Thursday September 6, 2017 at 7:45 am.

6th graders will meet in the gym at 7:45 on Wednesday
Enter through the A2 doors on Brookline Street

7th graders will meet in the cafeteria at 7:45 on Thursday
Enter through the A2 doors on Brookline Street

8th graders will meet in the gym at 7:45
Enter through the A2 doors on Brookline Street

And, the first week?
School will resume to its normal routines for the rest of the week. This means that breakfast, morning gym, after school clubs, and transportation will run at their regularly scheduled times: 7:15 to 7:45 and 2:45 to 3:45.

What about drop off and pick up?
Brookline Street is a One Way from Chatham Street towards Empire Street two times a day on school days:
7:15 to 8:15 AM
2:00 to 3:00 PM

There is no parking or idling in front of the school. This space is reserved for Lynn Public Schools transportation. Please respect the orange cones. See the flow chart below.

When visiting the school, from 8:15 am to 2:00 pm, you may park in the parking lot to the left of the gym or on the street. However, during drop off and pick up times parking in the parking lot is prohibited to ensure school safety.

What about our new neighbors?
Key to our success is our relationship with our neighbors; your help in making this happen is critical. As always, we encourage our students and families to be quiet and respectful of property. We understand that residents in the surrounding houses are also going through a period of adjustment about sharing their block with 1500 students, faculty, staff and workers every day. We instruct our children to pick up trash, cross the street in the designated crosswalks and take responsibility for creating and maintaining a positive relationship with our neighbors. Good relations with neighboring residents and businesses will be beneficial to us all.

What are opportunities for parent involvement?
Having parents actively supporting the school is key to our children’s success. The TMMS PTO is looking at the needs of the school and responding with fundraising, activities and input; however, we need parent volunteers. To join or inquire, please inquire in the main office. A PTO member will be in contact shortly thereafter.

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, 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 2017/2018 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. We want you to join us in making this the very best experience for your children. Being informed will help. Throughout the year our school website, blog, 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.

Molly Cohen

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.
