"Schoology" Parent Access Update - October 6, 2020

Your student's school will be reaching out to you by the end of next week with an access code for "Schoology". If you do not receive an access code by October 9th, reach out to your child's homeroom teacher. At the secondary level, you only need 1 access code and all courses will be loaded.

This account will allow you to see the work your child has submitted, discussions they have participated in, school updates, and also provides the ability to message staff at the school. Multiple children can be added to one parent account.

The following are videos (Part 1 and Part 2) showing how to set up your account and take advantage of all the "Schoology" features available to you.

Because We Dreamed It

Dear Friends at Thurgood Marshall Middle School,

Whatever happens to us, we will be grow and become more whole. I am a friend of your principal, an author of children's books, and also someone who has lived with terminal cancer for ten years. If anyone has reason to hope, it is me. I want to pass this hope onto you.

I also want to hear your hope. I hope this brings you a smile and an extra dose of positive energy which you very much deserve. If you were going to add to this meditation, what would your affirmation be?

Love and xo

because we dreamed it
it came true
jani johe webster

Here’s a four minute meditation video with these words:

Meditation to Greet the Day
This meditation is designed to replenish, renew and uplift. As part of a pathway to greater peace, this 4 minute video can be viewed on a daily basis. With soothing music, radiant photographs of nature, and positive affirmations, this video is created to bring peace, hope, and love. With very special thanks to Suzanne Webb for the contribution.



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 2019/2020 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.

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.
