Dear BlueJay Parents/Guardians- First of all, I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I am very excited to be taking on the role of Superintendent of Schools for the Marshfield R-I School District. During my four years in the district, I have been so proud to be part of the Marshfield R-I school team and part of this community. It is my belief that we have the best school and staff in the state. Throughout the summer, we have had lots going on in the district and have been extremely busy as we prepare for the upcoming school year. We just wrapped up a very successful summer school program, we are working on many summer projects, we are cleaning/revitalizing each building, and making sure we are ready to see students in August. Obviously, school has looked very different over the past year and a half. While I don’t have all of the answers for what it will look like for the upcoming year, I am certain that our district will continue to do all that we can to serve our students and have a successful school year. The district will continue to use this newsletter to share important information throughout the school year. Please take some time to review this document whenever it is sent out. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. We are privileged to have the opportunity to educate your children and we are looking forward to a great school year. - Sincerely, Mike Henry Superintendent of Schools

ALL transportation needs should have been submitted during 21-22 Online Registration. EVEN IF THE TRANSPORTATION REQUEST IS THE SAME AS THE 20-21 SCHOOL YEAR. Parents submitting online registration AFTER AUGUST 1st will be required to provide their own transportation the first two days of school. Prior to the first day of school, our nearly 40 bus drivers are given student information. As you can imagine quite a lot of time is spent fine tuning routes and contacting families. For this reason a deadline is necessary. ALL transportation needs will be submitted during online enrollment. ALL permanent bus transportation changes MUST be communicated through Central Office. 859-2120 ext. 0 DO NOT give this information to the classroom teacher OR the building office. Students will be allowed ONLY 3 permanent bus changes throughout the entire school year. Students may only be set up for TWO transportation addresses at any given time. Students may begin utilizing new transportation 2 school days following request. Students may only travel to permanent addresses listed during online registration. There will be NO after school notes accepted for students traveling to addresses parents have not previously listed for their child during online registration.
It is with grateful hearts that we announce that the Webster County Baptist Association in conjunction with local churches, will again be providing school supplies for Marshfield students Kindergarten thru 8th grade. High school teachers will communicate any supplies needed for specific classes to their students.
We are pleased to provide breakfast and lunch to ALL students free of charge via federal funding. Although, it is very important for families to submit the free and reduced lunch form during online registration to assist with funding of other programs including preschool. This extension is through the 21-22 school year. It is important to note that any ala carte items, including individual milks ($0.40 each), will be charged to your child's account. Additional lunch trays will also be charged to your child's account. To see lunch and breakfast prices click the image to the left.
New and returning MVP students and parents will kick-off the semester with a required orientation event in the first week of school.

Many of our elementary teachers have begun implementing Language Workshop which is a vital component of our distrcit literacy plan, Literacy the Blue Jay Way. Language Workshop utilizes whole group interactive read-aloud lessons to engage stduents in listening, thinking, speaking, and writing about reading to develop understanding of texts. Pictured below is literacy coach Joni Seymour teaching a Language Workshop lesson in Angie Pollard's third grade class. Third grade students responded to the read-aloud in their reading response logs. Also pictured is kindergarten teacher Jen Cowden during Language Workshop teaching her students how to "turn and talk" to discuss the read-aloud text.
