Dear Marshall Simonds Middle School Families,
Marshall Simonds Middle School’s current schedule includes Activity Block; 2 days a week when students sign up for different activities offered by teachers. The activities run for about 4 to 6 weeks and then students are scheduled into a new activity. This structure allows students to explore different interests and connect students and teachers in a less formal way. In September, the focus of Activity Block was on relationships and we were excited to see the teachers and educators embrace this new practice.
Today, students were given the opportunity to review the Activity Block offerings (click the link to view) and select their top 4 choices. We are including the listing of Activity Block offerings for your review. We encourage you to ask your child which activities they chose. It is our hope that we will be able to honor students’ first or second choice, but this may not be possible in all cases. Once assigned to an activity, students will not be able to change until the next Activity Block session begins.
Cari Perchase and Josh Murphy
