MHS NEWS AND HEADLINES
SNOW DAY MAKE-UP INFORMATIONAs you are aware school cancellations require us to adjust instructional minutes to meet the number of instructional minutes that are required for the year by the Department of Public Instruction.We have come up with a solution to make up the time by modifying our schedule. Starting on April 25, 2019 MHS will reduce the lunch periods by five minutes and run on the schedule listed below (pending any additional snow days.)
We intend to move forward with the following changes (listed in reverse chronological order):
- Friday, June 7th will be a full-day with students and the last day of school for 2018-19
- Thursday, June 6th will be a full-day with students
- Both early dismissal days in April will be changed to full-days with students (April 5th & 19th)
- Lunch periods at the high school will be shortened by 5 minutes per day starting on February 25th
Based on these adjustments, and if we have no additional closures, we will have met the required instructional minutes with Friday, June 7th serving as the last day of school for 2018-19.
On March 6th the upper level Spanish students at Marshfield High School will be hosting a culture fair from 4:30-6:30pm. The High School commons will be transformed as the students display their posters and demonstrations about various research topics centered on art in Spanish Speaking Countries. Dacia Giordana will be heading the event. She and Leslie Reigel will be working with the Spanish IV, IVH, and AP students to hold the Fair. Earlier this year, Dacia was awarded the Oscar Neale Fellowship through UW Stevens Point. Through this fellowship, Dacia was able to connect her students with native Spanish Speakers all around the world through a company called Talk Abroad. With these conversations, her students learned about different forms of art in various Spanish Speaking countries. The students are now conducting their own research on artistic topics in the Spanish Speaking world that they have chosen, and are excited to share their knowledge with others. The culture fair is a free event where friends, families, and the public can learn about Spanish art in a fun, interactive way. This is an open-house style family event where kids and adults alike will enjoy learning about music, artists, fashion, sports, and food from around the world. Mark your calendars and tell your friends to come support the research these wonderful students have done!
