On Monday, April 13, 2015, Ministry St. Joseph’s Hospital hosted a Leadership Academy Retreat for the 6th Grade Leadership Team. The Leadership Retreat was sponsored by local businesses that participate in MACCI’s Leadership Group. Adult leaders who participate in MACCI’s Leadership opportunity volunteered their time helping coach and guide the students throughout the day during each activity.
During the retreat, students reviewed the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens through interactive activities focused on demonstrating each habit. Lessons included cultural diversity, proactive deposits into emotional bank accounts of friends, family and teachers, learning to prioritize, learning to look at both sides of a story before jumping to conclusions, improving listening skills, speaking in front of their peers, learning to work in small groups and working effectively with a team.
The 6th Grade Leadership Group is comprised of 6th grade student leaders representing each of our five elementary schools. Throughout the year this group finds ways to provide leadership in each of their schools. They pick a project they want to work on, present it to their leadership advisor and building administration and then find ways implement it during the school year. This year the projects included improving school unity, bully awareness, respectful recess and smart moves. The students organized a can drive each month to raise money for the new Wildwood Zoo Bear Exhibit.
6th Grade Leadership Mission: Leadership Academy is program designed to provide targeted leadership instruction to 6th grade students in the School District of Marshfield. These students are provided with the opportunity to learn characteristics of exemplary leadership, learn how to develop individualized leadership styles and how to work as a team to organize a school based project, which they plan and carry out throughout the school year.

Students Visit Trierweiler Construction
Last week Trierweiler Construction hosted an event for students enrolled in construction and engineering courses at MHS. Students were able to ask Trierweiler Construction employee’s questions regarding what the job entails, what a typical workday looks like and what kind of training is necessary on the job.
The School District of Marshfield is fortunate to have partnerships with local companies like Trierweiler Construction who provide students with educational opportunities outside the classroom.

Symphony Orchestra Performances
Interested in strings or the orchestra but not sure where to start? Last week the Marshfield High School Symphony Orchestra toured our five elementary schools. This yearly event is a great opportunity for elementary students to see a full symphony perform live and possibly spark some interest in various instruments such as the oboe, violin or bass.
