As our school year starts winding down, it is time to think about our students and their summer plans. Summers are a time of fun and enjoyment for kids, full of outdoor activities, bike rides, swimming, and more. For students in the age group we serve, however, it can also mean lots of unsupervised time. Many parents work Monday through Friday jobs, and kids ages 9-11 are often considered old enough to stay home alone. With this in mind, we will be having a Shook Safety Night on Tuesday, May 16 from 6:00-8:00 pm. This event is designed to provide parents with the knowledge necessary to keep their children safe, in hopes we will see all of our kiddos again in August, happy and healthy.
Marshfield Seniors have been finishing their senior projects for the last few months. These projects have ranged from concerts, diaper drives, 5k runs, and many others focusing on improving themselves, the school, or the community. One senior has wrapped up her project with incredible success.
