Welcome to the Middle School
The middle school staff and students embrace the beginning of this 3rd nine weeks as they continue to strive for academic excellence this school year.  While this period of time on the school calendar is traditionally a busy one, it brings with it additional excitement for our 8th graders as they begin the transition period of scheduling for high school classes.  We are also continuing our preparations for our annual state tests. Our 6th graders will take tests in the subjects of Math, Reading, and Social Studies.  7th graders will be tested in areas of Math and Reading.  Finally, the 8th graders will be taking Science, Reading, and Math tests.  These tests will take place during the testing window of April 11th through May 6th, which will allow students the advantage of being tested on one subject area per week.

In closing, I would like to remind everyone about the assignment calendars that are located on the left hand side of this web page. The calendars are a valuable tool for parents and students.  Additionally, parents are encouraged to read through the Parent iPad Navigation packet. The link is located to the left as well. This guide will assist you through key components of your student’s iPad. As always, please contact the school with any questions you may have.

Go Dukes!

Regional Power of the Pen Competition
Marlington Middle School’s Power of the Pen team travelled to Malone on Saturday to compete at the regional competition. 5 competitors represented our school: 7th graders Stella McConnell and Jenna McNeil and 8th graders Angel Borbajo, Rachel Ketler, and Nick Kish. All students wrote in 3 different rounds to 3 different and unknown prompts. They were given 40 minutes to write in each round. Rachel Ketler placed 12th out of 200 writers and Angel Borbajo placed 10th. Both will be moving on to the State competition at Wooster in May. Angel also received a very special award called the Best of the Best. She will be published in next year’s publication of the best writings from 2015. Only 4 writers at the competition received this honor. Great job to all and Go Dukes!

Study Madness Kings and Queens

 
 

Over the past few weeks our 8th graders competed in Study Madness to sharpen their skills for upcoming tests. Students were placed on teams and encouraged to work together to answer questions correctly. Winning teams advanced through the bracket each week. Thank you to everyone that worked hard throughout the competition!  Today we crowned our kings and queens of the tournament with king size candy bars! Congratulations to our winners: Isabella Warner, Leaha Viscounte, Leah Springer, Megan Quinn, Cole Redd
Odyssey Earth

Wildlife filmmaker Richard Kern visited Marlington Middle School 8th graders on March 15th! From the view of his video camera and his engaging live narration, we explored vast praires and and pine forests that fringe the Western Everglades’ swamps. We witnessed rare footage of “metamorphosis, pollination, desiccation and rebirth while learning about the delicate balance of interaction between species and their unique environment. We also delved into the history and geology of the darkest and wildest area of Florida, as well as learned about endangered orchid restoration, panther rehabilitation efforts, and human’s role on shaping these ecosystems”. It was truly an awe-inspiring experience!
