Food for Thought:
Marysville School District 2016 statistics show that 54% of elementary students use Free/Reduced meals. These children receive meals at school, but what happens to these children when the school week is over?
Food For Thought Backpack Program is currently working with all of elementary school counselors to provide these students with weekend meals. We also have a “Food Pantry” in all of the Middle & High Schools for those students in need.
Each bag contains:
-Breakfast: Instant oatmeal, box cereal, Pop Tart, and shelf-stable milk
-Lunch: Mac & Cheese, Top Ramen, Cup of Soup or Campbell’s soup, and juice
-Snack: Fruit snack, granola bar, cheese and crackers, carrot sticks, apple, banana or oranges, and juice
-Dinner & Dessert: Chef Boyardee Meal, Kids Complete Meal, ravioli, chili, shelf-stable milk, and pudding or fruit cup
For more information, please contact you child's school counselor.
Operation School Bell:

Dear Totem Families,
Our school takes pride in and celebrates the diversity of our students, families, staff, and our community.
Since the start of this school year, action steps have been taken by the Marysville School District to address concerns related to meeting the needs of each student such as social-emotional and physical safety, addressing inequitable practices, and creating a sense of belonging.
Part of these action steps include schools hosting “listening sessions” to bring our students, families, staff, and community members together to share their needs and concerns. We are committed to actively listening to each of your experiences.
Please join us April 28 at 5pm in the TMS Library for our school’s listening session. If you are unable to attend, we will be creating a Google Survey for you to include your feedback. We look forward to your participation with us on this journey as we strive to create a sense of belonging for each student and family we serve.
