Volunteer to read for one hour per week with SMART® (Start Making A Reader Today) at Marysville

As a SMART volunteer, you’ll read one-on-one with our kindergarten through third-grade students from mid-October through mid-May.  The consistent, one-on-one time helps build literacy skills and self-confidence.  SMART is fun and further encourages children to read outside the classroom by giving students new books each month to take home and keep.

We are looking for at least 10 volunteers; reading times are available on Tuesday or Friday afternoons from 1:30-2:50pm!  Visit www.getsmartoregon.org or call 971-634-1603.  Reading starts next week! 


Portland State University Vikings Football Players Visit Marysville

On Thursday the 25th, the PSU Viking football team members came to Marysville school to help 7th and 8th grade students with academic goal setting. This is the second year in a row the school has hosted the Viking team and it is something the students really enjoy. Students were paired up with a football player and were able to spend one-on-one time with the players. Each student had a goal ready, and the players helped them think of strategies to achieve their goal. They also talked about favorite subjects and books, and the football players shared things about their college experience. After the one-on-one sessions, students and players took to the fields and courts to play games and mingle. Lower grade students came out and joined in the fun and got autographs from the players. It was a wonderful event and so beneficial for our students. 

Special thanks to the Shadow Project for their support of Marysville!

News from the Principal

Dear Families,

You have probably heard that we are doing a new program this year entitled, MindUP!

Here is a little blurb from their website:

MindUP™ is a research-based training program for educators and children. This program is composed of 15 lessons based in neuroscience. Students learn to self-regulate behavior and mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success. MindUP™ lessons align with all state standards including Common Core and support improved academic performance while enhancing perspective taking, empathy and kindness as well as fostering complex problem solving skills.

In a nutshell, we are teaching students about the brain and how to be mindful and fully present to the task at hand. Given the multitasking nature of our world today, we are finding that teaching them to be mindfully focused on one thing helps them calm their brain, and therefore learn better.

Each class begins the day with 15 minutes of MindUP time.  During this time you may see the lights down, soft music playing, the teacher at the door greeting the students.  The students quickly come in, and will begin some sort of lesson in line with MindUp.  At 9:00, the time closes often with Chime Time.  Chime Time is a ringing of the chime where students close their eyes, relax their brain and get ready to learn. 

We would like to involve you in this process.  We are having a free parent training on February 18th at 6:00 pm.  Please save the date.  More information to come.

In the meantime, feel free to speak with the office or your teacher about this if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Lana Penley

Dear Marysville Families,

Marysville is collecting Box Tops and Labels for Education through the Family Club!

      

We are starting to collect Box Tops and Labels for Education for our school. Please take a few minutes to see if you have any and watch for them on products you buy.  Tell your family and friends, this will be an ongoing collection throughout the year.  We are hoping to use these resources to help supplement the Arts program at the school.
