MMS General Information 2022-2023
Dear MMS Families,
Below are a couple of important reminders for the 2022/2023 school year.
1.) Morning drop-off procedures: If your student is not a bus rider, please try to drop your student off at MMS around 7:30am or slightly later each day at the Door 2 Palmetto Avenue main entrance. We will have students wait outside until 7:37am each day, at which time the doors will open, and students will enter the building and go to their lockers. First hour starts at 7:45am. On inclement weather days, students will be allowed to enter the cafeteria and stay there until 7:37am each day. School breakfast eaters will be allowed in the building each day starting at 7:20am and should report to the cafeteria.
2.) Please be sure to check Skyward Family Access to ensure your family contact information is correct. You can also check Fee Management in Skyward to ensure all fees are paid.
4.) Skyward Gradebook: Our MMS teaching staff will make every effort possible to have Skyward Family Access Gradebook updated each Tuesday by 12:00pm. Please understand this will not always be possible depending on when certain assessments are assigned and collected; however, this is our building-wide goal. The purpose of this building-wide goal is to keep parents, guardians, and students abreast of academic progress in a timely manner.
5.) Dress Code: Please review our MMS Dress Code on page 16 in the assignment notebook. Also, hats and hoods will not be allowed during the school day for this school year.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

OPTIONAL Academic Support Programs
October 5, 2022
I would like to pass along some information regarding two OPTIONAL academic supports we are excited to offer to ALL Marshfield Middle School students.
1.) Tutoring & More: This is a program offered to Marshfield Middle School students interested in after-school tutoring, homework help, study time, or simply a place to complete school activities before returning home in the evening. “Tutoring & More” is not intended to serve as direct instruction. Instead, this is a place for students to focus on an academic task with assistance from a certified Marshfield Middle School educator. Starting Monday, October 10, “Tutoring & More” is open to students each Monday through Thursday from 3:05 - 4:05pm. This program is free of charge and a snack is provided each day. Students are able to attend as they or as their parent/guardian choose. Please click HERE to learn more about the After-School Tutoring & More program.
2.) Paper: “Paper” tutoring is an educational support system that provides MMS students 24 hours a day/7 days a week live help, essay review, and real time/real teacher feedback and homework help. “Paper” tutors are highly qualified and certified educators who assist students with classroom assignments and concepts. The program is designed to support students after school hours when MMS teachers are not readily available. Many times, this is in the evenings, during the weekend, or following an after-school extracurricular activity. “Paper” tutors are free to students and parents in the School District of Marshfield. For more information regarding this unique opportunity, please click HERE to review the attached flyer to join a parent information session time that works best for you, OR log in to https://paper.co/parents-guardians.
If you have any questions about either of these two academic supports, please contact me at any time.

MARSHFIELD APPLIED PERSONALIZED LEARNING EXPERIENCE (MAPLE)
MAPLE is a new, learner-centered, parent choice program offered to 7th and 8th grade students. MAPLE courses follow the regular, advanced, and support levels like our traditional core courses (Math, English, Social Studies, Science). The instructional model is designed to meet each learner where they are and continue to help them progress. Four core teachers work together with the MAPLE students using an interdisciplinary model of instruction. For more detailed information about MAPLE, please see the brochure attached to this webpage.
PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. PBIS is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture that is needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success.
Our core values are: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty.
- Teaching positive and acceptable behaviors
- Being proactive rather than reactive
- Using data to track behaviors and meet goals
- Creating consistent expectations and language throughout the school
- Reinforcing expectations through PBIS, students take ownership of making the Marshfield Middle School a wonderful place of learning
- Top Cat - Teacher nominated weekly, 1 student from each team that demonstrates the middle school core values
- Caught In the Act - Weekly recognition for those students “caught” performing a positive act during the school day
- Postcards – Special recognition by our staff of those students who went “above and beyond” in helping Marshfield Middle School become a great place to learn
- Quarterly Rewards –Each quarter those students who work towards following our PBIS core values are invited to participate in a special reward. Some examples include: guest speakers, color run, movie day, and the Homecoming Hustle
- Perfect Attendance - Yearly Recognition for those students who did not miss one entire day of school
Check-in, Check-out Program (CICO)
- CICO is a PBIS Tier 2 intervention program for students who may need more positive adult attention and structured feedback to be successful in school. It is very important that this is a positive experience for the student to help encourage them to make good choices.
- Goals of CICO – 1) Improve student engagement, 2) Reduce office referrals, 3) Improve academic success
- Student Cohorts – Each quarter a new cohort of students is selected to participate in CICO. Please note that students can opt-out of the program.
- Student Requirements –
- Pick up Tally Sheet every morning in the lobby.
- Have each teacher fill out and initial tally sheet (each hour every day)
- At the end of the day drop off tally sheet in the Main Office and pick up a piece of candy.
- Each student who turns in their sheet every day of the week will receive some special recognition from a school administrator or PBIS Team member.
- Staff Involvement –
- Greet the student warmly when they give you their CICO rating sheet.
- Sometime during the class period circle the rating scores, initial the sheet and give back to the student. Give a positive compliment or statement to the student when returning the slip.
- At the end of the day, each CICO student will turn in their slips to the office and receive a piece of candy as incentive to turn in their slips.
- Data Collection – Tally sheets for each student will be tracked on a digital log. At the end of the quarter we will compare student data (discipline referrals, grades, attendance) from quarters 1 & 2 with quarter 3 to see if there was improvement.
