  • Kinder - Mateo C.
  • 1st Grade - Vianney G.

Please make sure your children are reading a good book and logging into the HUB to practice at least 30 minutes of IStation and iReady each evening. Also, remind them that we have the 40+ Book Challenge going on right now.


Field Trips have already started and becoming a cleared volunteer takes 3-4 weeks from start to finish.

Every minute counts at Martin Elementary. From the moment our students our greeted at their classroom thresholds at 7:40 AM until the moment we dismiss at 3:20 PM, learning is happening. Martin overall attendance for September is 96%. Our campus goal is 98%. Please work with your children to ensure they are healthy and at school every day and arrive by the tardy bell of 7:55 am. If they are going to be absent, don't forget to send a note with your child upon their return.

Looking for the classes with 100% perfect attendance this week... will that be your child's class?
