Welcome Back To The 2022/2023 School Year At TMMS!

Before we get into the framing of our year, we have exciting news to share. Ms. Cohen has been invited to be Interim Deputy Superintendent for the upcoming school year and Ms. Doucette has been placed as Interim Principal in her place at TMMS. The best news is that Ms. Cohen will continue to be a vital part of our TMMS Community and supporting us at the district level.

We also would like to welcome aboard our newly appointed Vice Principal, Timothy Ferrari and newly appointed interim Vice Principal, Alisa Fila. They will join our veteran Vice Principal, John Pavia in continuing our work from last year to stabilize our school after the return from remote learning. We are so proud of how far we have come in this area and have a strong team ready to set routines and support our students in their middle school years.

We are so excited to build our community partnership through the lens of our DREAM guiding principles, which guide our daily interactions in dignity, respect, effort, achievement, and motivation. This year we will be working with our students around the D.R.E.A.M. to elevate student voice around our guiding principles. We believe that these five concepts create a warm, welcoming environment where we are committed to being caring and civic-minded individuals. Together we can build a school community that includes everyone, respects our differences, admires our qualities, and celebrates our unique talents. The school would like to continue to explore how this relates to Social Justice and our important Equity work.

School and family partnerships are central to improving academic achievement of our students. This year more than ever, we aspire to work with families to support our students' academic lives. We will do our best to help keep families informed and solicit feedback through surveys and conferences. Throughout the year our school website, school calendar, and newsletters will provide you with the most current information. This year we will continue to incorporate fun, community building events during Open House Evenings and some Saturdays. We would love to see you there!

Our academic priorities are delivering effective instructional practices through authentic relationships and social emotional learning supports through an equity lens. Here are our continued commitments to you:
• We will engage in professional collaborative planning to develop and respond to formative assessments. We focus on 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 social emotional awareness. The goals for Advisory are to build personal relationships and to increase student agency by developing personal goals. Advisories are a supportive, non-academic setting where students can connect learning with life.

• The Principal will invite family members to the school for listening and/or learning sessions to build community, discuss school initiatives, offer feedback and share questions or concerns. Let me know if you have any ideas for this! You can send me an email or call the school.

We look forward to working together to ensure that all our students meet their full potential and have a positive experience at our awesome school.
Warmly,
Stephanie Doucette
Acting Principal

Welcome To Our School Council Meeting Minutes
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

Greetings Families of Thurgood Marshall Middle School (TMMS):

We are so excited to welcome back our students and families to the new school year! Our goal is to ensure that every student receives the highest quality of education in a safe and supportive learning environment.  Working together as a team with our staff and families, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.  

To accomplish this goal, Thurgood Marshall Middle School follows The D.R.E.A.M. guiding principles.  These are:  Dignity, Respect, Effort, Achievement and Motivation.  We will discuss and implement these concepts into everything we do at TMMS.  Our focus will be to develop well-rounded and civic-minded individuals. This year we will elevate student voices and partner with families.  When we model these concepts in everything that we do, we take our school from good to great. 

We look forward to a busy, exciting, and rewarding year.  Throughout the year our school website, calendar, and newsletters will provide you with the most current information.  

Included here are Important Reminders & Procedures and the bus website, www.mbta.com.  At this time we are not requesting student bring supplies.  All they need is there LPS issued school computer and charger.  Clusters will inform the students what supplies they need for school.  

Best Wishes,
Stephanie Doucette
Interim Principal

A Message to the TMMS Community
We Would Like To Share from the Lynn Public Schools
and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education

As we grapple with the shooting as well as our grief over the recent racially motivated killings in Buffalo, NY and Laguna, CA and the second anniversary of George Floyd’s death, please remember to be particularly sensitive to the children in your life, whether you’re their teacher, parent, or friend.

The National Association of School Psychologists offers tips for families and educators on how to talk to children about violence. In addition, the National Mass Violence Victimization Resource Center offers ideas on talking with children about hate crimes.

Additional resources include:
Managing Your Stress in the Aftermath of a Shooting (APA)
National Parent Helpline
How to Talk to Kids About School Shootings (Common Sense Media)

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

Thank you for all you do to support students and each other during these difficult times.
