Please help us keep your children safe by following these guidelines and reviewing them with your child.

Welcome To The Marshall Middle School 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. 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 2015/2016 school year:

• Teachers will implement protocols in professional collaborative discussions to improve instructional practices. Focus areas may include promoting higher order thinking skills and increasing student cognitive engagement for all students.

• All staff will implement an Advisory Curriculum that includes a whole school book read and personal goal setting and civic minded action. 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 Divergent.

• 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. We encourage families to get involved in their 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, 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.

Bienvenido a la página web de Thurgood Marshall Middle School (TMMS).

Es un honor y privilegio servir como directora de una institución compuesta de personal académico, padres y estudiantes comprometidos con el crecimiento y logro escolar de nuestros alumnos.

Mi objetivo es asegurar que cada estudiante recibe la más alta calidad de educación en un ambiente de aprendizaje, seguro y de apoyo. Nuestra misión en TMMS es inculcar en nuestros estudiantes el principio conocido con el nombre “DREAM” que guía nuestras interacciones día a día a través del desarrollo de la Dignidad, Respeto, Esfuerzo, Actitud y Motivación.  Las ideas básicas incluidas en estos cinco conceptos, servirán como ayuda en la formación de nuestros estudiantes en individuos preparados para enfrentar los desafíos del futuro con conciencia cívico y académico.

 A través del trabajo duro y dedicación, podemos lograr el sueño de convertirse nuestra escuela en un establecimiento de alto rendimiento.

Durante este año escolar 2015/2016,  nos concentraremos en las siguientes iniciativas:

• Los maestros implementarán métodos para mejorar las prácticas de enseñanza y motivación.  Aumentando el pensamiento y a participación de todos los estudiantes.

• Se pondrá en marcha un plan de estudios con Asesores que incluirá la lectura de un libro completo y el establecimiento de metas personales y acciones cívica.  El objetivo de lectura es aumentar el contacto con libros en una forma divertida y personal.  Grupos de Asesores leerán novelas de interés popular, como por ejemplo, la novela de ciencia ficción llamada Divergente.

• La directora implementará reuniones habituales a realizarse una vez cada semestre.  El objetivo de estas reuniones es crear un espacio para que los apoderados puedan expresar sus opiniones y participar en las actividades escolares, discutir iniciativas, ofrecer recomendaciones y compartir inquietudes.

La alianza entre la escuela y las familias es fundamental para mejorar el rendimiento académico de nuestros estudiantes.  Invitamos cordialmente a las familias para participar en la vida académica de nuestros alumnos. Queremos que te unas a nosotros para hacer de esta la mejor experiencia para sus hijos.   Es necesario que este informado a lo largo del año escolar, para ello nuestro sitio web incluirá información general de la escuela como también calendarios y boletines actualizados.

Esperamos con interés trabajar juntos para asegurar que todos nuestros estudiantes puedan alcanzar el máximo potencial académico como personal que ellos se merecen.

Greetings Parents and Families of Thurgood Marshall Middle School (TMMS)

Welcome parents and students to the 2015-2016 school year! I hope you have been enjoying these past few weeks of summer and are looking forward to a great school year.  I am excited for a productive year of learning and growth for our students and our professional staff.  My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment.  Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.  Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort.

In order to accomplish this goal, Thurgood Marshall Middle School follows The DREAM guiding principle.  These are: Dignity, Respect, Effort, Attitude and Motivation.  We will be spending a considerable amount of time discussing and implementing these concepts into what we do at TMMS.  We believe that by adhering to the basic ideas embedded in these five concepts, our students will become well rounded and civic-minded individuals. When we model these concepts in everything that we do, we take our school from good to great.

The middle school years are an important and critical time of transition – moving from the elementary experience and preparing for the competitive challenge of high school.  What happens during these few short years will have a lasting impression on the development and growth of your children.

The year will be busy, exciting, and very rewarding for each student if they put forth their best effort and conduct themselves with dignity, respect, effort and a positive attitude.   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, periodic calendars, and newsletters, will provide you with the most current information. 

In this letter I have included Important Reminders & Procedures and the bus website, www.mbta.com, which will give you the information you need. Please check the our website for the summer reading list. The Clusters will inform the students what supplies they need for school.  Remember students are responsible for completing their summer reading projects by the second week of school.

The first day of school for 6th graders is Wednesday September 9, 2015.

Our second 6th Grade Orientation Day will be Wednesday September 2, 2015 from 9-12. Please enter through the cafeteria in the back of the building. We look forward to meeting with you then.

The first day of school for 7th and 8th graders is Thursday September 10, 2015.

A Word About Attedance
Only students may enter the school through the main entrance located at the front of the school on Porter St. from 7:45 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 ARRIVING TARDY WILL SERVE DETENTION after THREE TADIES. 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.

Best wishes,

Molly Cohen
Principal
