  • MMS Updates and General Information

    Dear MMS Families,

    Below are a couple of important reminders for the 2021/2022 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 Street 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.

    3.) School Supplies:  Teachers will communicate to students school supply needs for their specific classes.  Students should bring assignment notebooks, iPads, writing utensils, and a printed schedule to each class.

    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. 

    6.) As a reminder, masking is required for all students and staff while indoors on school grounds.  

    As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. 

    Sincerely,

    Matt Biederwolf

    Marshfield Middle School Principal

  • Canvas Information

    Below is some information regarding Canvas:

    1.) What is Canvas?

    Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) used by all students in grades 5-12 in the School District of Marshfield. This LMS provides a tool for teachers to make their class resources accessible for supporting anywhere, anytime learning.   Although checking your student’s grades in Skyward is still important, becoming a Canvas Observer for your student is increasingly necessary.  Skyward is a tool for reporting grades, whereas Canvas allows for rapid feedback on activities and learning targets and documentation of choices students make in their learning.  Becoming a Canvas Observer will allow you to have a more complete picture of what your student is doing in each class.

    2.) Why is Canvas important?

    Canvas is important for both students/parents to keep track of daily progress in all subject areas. All Marshfield Middle School courses have a Canvas page.  Students are able to view class agendas and weekly plans, access and complete assignments, check due dates, take tests and quizzes, view scores and feedback for individual assignments and the overall course.  Parents who have signed up as Observers can view class agendas and weekly plans, check due dates and submission status for assignments, and see the feedback for individual assignments and courses overall for all classes their student is registered for.  In addition, both Students and Observers can send messages to the course teachers. 

    3.) How to use Canvas?

    For parents, it is highly recommended to become an Observer of your child's Canvas account. By being an Observer, you will be able to view student progress on assignments and quizzes as well as feedback on ways to improve. This can also help with planning for upcoming work with your student.

    To become a Canvas Observer, please click the following link provided by the school district:

    Sincerely,

  • Spelling Bee 2021-2022

    Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s),

    This year, we will use the Scripps National Spelling Bee’s online testing platform to hold our Marshfield Middle School Spelling Bee via an online spelling test.  The first step to spelling bee participation for your child is registering for the online testing platform by visiting https://online-test.spellingbee.com.  I encourage you to watch the following video tutorial that will walk you through the registration process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ThKRsffiFc

    Once you have registered, I will be able to assign the appropriate test to your child. Your child must complete the test on December 2, 2021. Tests can be taken on any device with a web browser, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones. Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge are our preferred browsers.  We do not support Safari for desktop or Internet Explorer.  A parent or guardian must be present while the student is taking the test.

    The students from grades 7 and 8 with the highest scores will move on to compete at the regional level.  Our school champions will represent Marshfield Middle School in the next level of the CESA 5 regional spelling bee program, which also may include online tests in lieu of in-person spelling bee events.

    Remember, the first step to spelling bee participation is to register at online-test.spellingbee.com.  Please register your child at your earliest convenience as I will begin assigning tests to students soon. If you have already registered in the online testing platform for another child, you can log in to your account and add an additional child to that same parent account. There is no need to register a different email address for each child in your household.

    Please reach out to me if you have any questions about our school spelling bee program.  Students may come to Room 202 to pick up Study Spelling Lists, so they can study through the Thanksgiving Break! I look forward to having your child compete to represent our school!

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Decandia

     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.
