Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient To Speak at FBMS

As part of the Furnace Brook Middle School's annual Veterans Day activities, we are fortunate to have  Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, Captain Thomas Kelley, U.S. Navy (Ret.), speaking to two student assemblies tomorrow morning.  The school is thrilled to have such an esteemed speaker addressing their students and staff on such an important day.  The school has also invited Marshfield Veterans to these assemblies to thank them and honor their service.

Homework Free Night- Tuesday, November 10th

Good evening.  I am writing to inform you that on Tuesday, November 10th, the Marshfield Public Schools will have a district wide “Homework Free” night.

In part, we are looking to give our students a night off of homework because, for some, schedules and stress levels grow as the year progresses and a night without homework will be good for our students.  In addition, a night away from school work will allow us all to focus on the importance of recognizing Veterans Day, which takes place on Wednesday, November 11th.

In lieu of homework, I am hopeful that students will find the time over the Veterans Day holiday to thank a Veteran for their service to our country.  This person could be a relative, a neighbor, a friend or a Veteran they just met for the first time.  In addition, folks may be interested in attending the wonderful Veterans Day Ceremony that takes place at 11 AM on November 11th at Veterans Park, to help further shine the light on an amazing group of individuals who have served our country so valiantly over the years.

Thank you and have a great evening.
