MSAD 35 News June 9, 2021 Dear Families and Staff, First of all thanks for your hard work, patience and support during this school year; it was tough but here we are, June 2021 and things are definitely looking brighter! A couple of notes on the upcoming vaccination clinic: COVID Vaccination Clinics will be held on June 11 at MHS from 8:30-10:00 and MMS from 10:15-12:15. Your student’s vaccination card is at the site (school) where they received their first dose. If you need to get the second dose at a different site, please contact the RN at the school where the first dose was administered to pick up their card. Your student can receive the first dose during this clinic. You will need to fill out the consent form for them to bring with them. If you need a consent form, please contact me Judy Doran RN or your school nurse and we’ll send one out to you. You are welcome to be present and can fill out a consent on site but your attendance is not required. The Pfizer vaccine has received Emergency Use Authorization for children aged 12 and up and is widely available in Maine if you decide to hold off on getting your child vaccinated now but would like to in the future. COVID-19 Vaccinations are our ticket out of this pandemic. The more people who are vaccinated, the less restrictions we all face and the safer our communities are for all people. I often get too wordy in these letters, but today I’m going to keep it short. Thanks again! Thank you Bus Drivers! Thank you Custodians! Thank you Teachers! Thank you Ed Techs! Thank you Admin Assists! Thank you Food Service Folks! Thank you Families! Thank you Kids! Thank you Admin! Thank you Nurses, every one in every building! You all put in mighty effort and kept up with us as we tried to figure out next best steps. I think the next best step is taking a minute to breathe, giving ourselves credit for this year, allowing some down time, being patient with one another and moving forward. OK maybe some ice cream, parks, mountains, beach, music, dining, hiking, connecting with friends, family, whatever…...just remember you’ve all been through the wringer, some more than others. Take the time you need to breathe and move forward. Thanks again and here’s to summer! The MSAD35 Nursing Team
June 7, 2021 Marshwood Middle School Parents and Guardians, I hope this notice finds you all doing well. I am reaching out this afternoon to provide some guidance with regard to the exceptionally warm weather we are currently experiencing and to answer questions about school attendance. MMS will remain open and in session with arrival and departure times as normal. The plan over the next couple of days will be to keep Marshwood Middle School students free from engaging in moderate to high-energy physical activities during the school day. We encourage all students to keep hydrated which means drinking water and healthy fluids while at home and school. We encourage you to send your child to school with a water bottle and a head covering IE: hat in the event outdoor activities are planned. Peace, Anthony A. Bourbon Principal Marshwood Middle School

Today, as Ms. Gray's seventh grade science class learns about hereditary and non-hereditary traits , they take to the halls to interview teachers about their binary traits (only two possible variations for each). Want to know more about this assignment? You might soon. These seventh grade students need to collect data on 15-20 people. After collecting data students will look for patterns and do some calculations. We can't wait see what they discover.

May is testing month at Marshwood Middle School. Last Wednesday and today sixth, seventh and eighth graders took Reading and Math tests. A big shout out to Ms. Camp and Ms. Ring for guiding the teachers and staff through the testing days.
These students couldn't be happier about the mild weather this week. Here is a peek of some sixth and seventh graders having some old fashion fun at recess with a game of four square and some jumping rope.

The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece, Athenian democracy and Western civilization, and one of the world's greatest cultural monuments.The majestic structure is known for its dignified white marble columns and perfect sense of proportion that held an enormous stone roof. The sixth graders worked to create a paper structure modeled after the Greek Parthenon. Students used a piece of paper and an arm’s length of tape to create their structure. Students were challenged to use their materials to build a structure that held 10 books at least four inches off the floor.
