Congratulations to the Raymond Design Team and Walsh Brothers Inc for winning this award.
8th grade students wrote a booklet of stories and advice for incoming 6th graders. Famous local author Nila Webster was inspired by the students at TMMS and wrote “Because We Dreamed It”. Students then met with Nila who challenged these students to write their own poems, stories, etc., for students that would be entering TMMS next year. The students had a fun time sharing their advice and well wishes.
This week I share with you pictures from a Cluster 11 Puzzle Party, the TMMS Wrestling Team, a Grade 8 Egg Drop Experiment and a visit from Handel and Haydn to Grade 7. I also snuck in a picture of student work displayed in the hallway of Cluster 7! Have a great first weekend of June!
Handel & Haydn Society Visits TMMS
The month of May at TMMS is the month of MOTIVATION!
This week we had the All City Art Exhibit and a visit from Dr. Luke Conlin of North Eastern University.
Students from all over the city displayed their talented art work at Lynn Arts. Students in Mr. Cook’s and Ms. Pratt’s class from TMMS had wonderful pieces at the show.
One of Ms. Detrich’s science classes got a visit from Dr. Luke Conlin who guest taught an Astronomy lesson. The students then got to use the telescope at High Rock Tower Observatory. Cool! Thank you Dr. Conlin!
In Mrs Ross’ beginning Spanish class this is what is going on: 6th GRADE: students have just finished a unit on the numbers up to 100 with some fun games like Battle ship and Bingo and are now progressing on to the calendar. We are tying the numbers into the calendar with having the students …
The Girls Empowerment group started at the beginning of school year 2016-2017 and was developed to bring girls together to become agents of positive change. The group run by Ms. Price and Ms. McGuinness is centered around mindfulness and compassion. As the weeks have progressed they have discussed everything from positive self talk, looking at moments from others’ perspectives and engaging in acts of kindness. At this point the girls are trying to spearhead a 24 hours social media challenge where they encourage members of the TMMS community to step away from their apps and use the available time to do something positive for themselves or others.
Dignity, respect, effort, attitude, and motivation. These five words spell out the DREAM acronym which is the guiding principal at Thurgood Marshall Middle School. These words also perfectly describe Vi Nguyen.
Vi is an 8th grade student in Cluster 7 at Thurgood Marshall Middle School. Vi came to Marshall this past September from Vietnam. Not only did Vi have to focus on learning the English language, but she also had to adjust to her new home. Vi is also the only person in Cluster 7 that speaks Vietnamese. To most people this would be overwhelming, but Vi rose to the challenge.
Vi makes coming to school a priority. She is rarely ever absent. While at school she is extremely dignified. She has all her materials for class (especially her bilingual dictionary), her homework is meticulously completed. And her attitude in class is serious and focused. She is truly a model student. Vi’s positive attitude about school is contagious. She is a leader in all her classes and the amount of English she has learned since September is impressive. Her teachers can always count on her to help students in class with difficult assignments or help a new student get acclimated to the cluster. She does this all with respect and poise.
Though her work ethic, friendly demeanor, and leadership skills are present in all Vi’s classes, she has proven to be exceptional at math. She plays the online program First in Math at home every night. She is ranked as one of the top ten players for the entire school. She has maintained this ranking since the fall. When Vi finishes her classwork she opens up her math book practice test booklet and works on diligently solving each algebra problem page be page. It seems there is no math problem that she can’t solve!
In closing, Vi is an asset at Marshall, especially in Cluster 7. She is passionate about her education and helping others. Vi’s effort and motivation are remarkable. Her teachers are honored to be able to teach her every day and her classmates are fortunate to be able to learn from her every day. She clearly represents the DREAM.
Thank you to all of the parents and guardians who came out for our 3rd and final open house on Wednesday.
We would like to give a huge shout-out to Ms. Mona Rashad who was nominated as the 2017 String Teacher of the Year by the American String Teachers Association.
Ms. Rashad has dedicated her life to sharing her love of the violin with children from underrepresented and diverse communities. Ms. Rashad currently teaches violin in Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra’s Intensive Community Program, and in the Lynn Public Schools. One of the founding violin teachers at the Conservatory Lab Charter School in Boston, Mona has had 16 years of extensive teaching experience, including holding teaching posts in the Boston, Holyoke, and Marlborough Schools, and at the Community Music Center of Boston, and the Indian Hill Music School.
She studied Violin Performance and Music Education at Rice University and the New England Conservatory where she was a student of Kenneth Goldsmith and James Buswell and studied Pedagogy with Marylou Speaker Churchill and Maria Benotti. Mona grew up in Houston, TX and began her violin studies as a Suzuki student in the public schools. At the age of 12, she was invited to Japan to participate in an International Suzuki Festival and play for Dr. Suzuki. As a teenager, she performed in Carnegie Hall and throughout concert halls in Europe as a member of the orchestra of the High School for Performing and Visual Arts and the Houston Youth Symphony.
She studied Suzuki pedagogy with Carol Sykes, and uses Dr. Suzuki’s child development philosophies to inspire her daily teaching. She believes that all children can be nurtured to become accomplished, creative, and poised musicians, and also develop into positive role models in their communities through their love of making music together.
All of us at TMMS are so proud of you Ms. Rashad and all of the fine work you have done for our strings program at Thurgood Marshall, and in the City of Lynn.

Students at Thurgood Marshall Middle School participated in a three week coin drive fundraiser to help raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We are pleased to announce that our students were able to contribute $1,690.92 to the organization! The homeroom that raised the most money was Mrs. Giroux’s with $217.59. They will be enjoying a pizza party celebration! Students worked hard to save pennies they found at home, requested from their parents, neighbors and family members, and brought them to school in an effort to help those suffering from blood cancer. Through classroom discussions, students learned about Leukemia and Lymphoma and the effect it has on people. The students immediately wanted to help contribute to research funds as they are hopeful that one day scientists and doctors will discover a cure. We are so proud of our students for being such caring and compassionate members of their communities. Their desire and motivation to host this coin drive, shows that children can make a big difference in our world. We are looking forward to our school participating in this fundraiser next year!
TMMS students represented at Districts Festival…
Members of the Thurgood Marshall Middle School National Junior Honor Society give members of the Lynn Community tours of the school on Saturday, March 11th.
Spread your wings and fly away
Stay happy even if today is not your day
Use your spirit to be okay
So we can see you “Fly by Day”
But if you are in darkness let me be the light
To help someone worthy “Fly by Night”
Just don’t give up there is still one more round to fight,
A legend said this his name is Muhammed Ali
He told tons “Float like a butterfly, then sting like a bee
The fight is almost won so get ready to “Dance and Be Free”
But I rather see you try forever than to quit
If you are asking why I wrote this,
“Because We Dreamed It”
