Principal's Message

Dear Marshfield Families and Commuity,
As we transition from the crisp chill of winter to the vibrant energy of spring, the spirit of excitement permeates our campus. March marks a significant shift in our school activities and events, mirroring the change in seasons.
Athletics and Activities
Our winter athletes and activities have showcased incredible dedication and talent throughout their season and several groups are finishing up this month.  The Upbeats Dance Team will be competing at the state competition on March 16th.  Our OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books) team and our Speech & Debate team are competing in their district/regional tournaments on March 16th as they hope to continue their season on to state.  Choir and Band are having their Spring Concerts on March 14 and March 19, respectively.  Our Winter Awards Night is March 19 at 6:00 pm in the Main Gym.  Please join us in celebrating this amazing season.
March is also the time we pivot to our Spring sports and activities and our athletes are gearing up to bring their A-game to the field, court, and track. We are excited to announce the birth of a new sport, boys’ volleyball this year.  Let's rally behind them, attend as many events as we can,  and show our unwavering support as they strive for excellence in every competition.
Hitting Full Stride into Second Semester
With the onset of March, we find ourselves fully engaged in our second semester courses. It's a time for renewed focus, setting new goals, and pushing boundaries. Whether it's in the classroom, on the stage, or out in the community, let's continue to embrace learning, growth, and collaboration as we embark on this journey together.  Parents and families, please check your ParentVue throughout the month and communicate with staff if you have any questions or concerns.  We will have parent/teacher conferences next month.
This is a busy time of the year for many seniors and their families.  SWOCC scholarship deadline is March 1, the local scholarship deadline is March 14, and OSAC is April 1.  Many students are beginning to receive those acceptance letters to colleges and may have questions about the next steps, so don’t hesitate to reach out to student services staff.  This is also a time many students are thinking about the military, vocational schools, and potential jobs after high school.  We will have a job fair next month to help students that aren’t quite sure of those next steps explore some options.  This is also the time senioritis sets in for some.  Stay committed to the end and this will be a fun last few months of your high school career.
Spring Break
As we navigate through the month, anticipation builds for the much-awaited Spring Break at the end of March. It's a time for our students and faculty to recharge, rejuvenate, and spend quality time with loved ones. Whether you're traveling to exotic destinations or enjoying a staycation, we encourage everyone to prioritize rest and relaxation, returning refreshed and ready to conquer the remainder of the academic year.
As we bid farewell to winter and embrace the blooming opportunities of spring, let's approach March with enthusiasm, determination, and a commitment to excellence. Together, let's make this month one to remember!
