Pumpkin projects!!!

In October pumpkins are very popular at Mart Elementary school. The teachers have come up with many creative ways to tie the season's gourd to the curriculum. Most common is the storybook pumpkin project. Students are asked to pick a character from one of their favorite books and make the pumpkin look like the character. A written report helps tie together the project. This year first grade also used pumpkins to learn about their 5 senses and making observations. They answered questions such as "How does the pumpkin smell?".

Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Thank you Mart ISD for your support of this year's breast cancer fundraiser. Between staff donations and shirt sales, we will be sending a check of $1714.50 to McClinton Cancer Center in Waco. This cancer center is located in Waco and treats all kinds of cancer. To find out more about what they do and who they serve you can visit their website at

Food for Families

Each year MHS SAG (Student Activities Government) collects donations for Food for Families. These donations are taken to KWTX in Waco and are provided to pantries in our area. This important event not only provides food to families in need, but it also provides a wonderful lesson on generosity and sharing for our students.

This year, the class who collects the most items on each campus will receive a pizza party, and the 2nd place winner for each campus will win an ice cream party.

Donations can be sent with students to school or dropped off on either campus. The last day for collections is Thursday, November 18th.
