September Family Newsletter


Dear Marthasville Students and Families,

What a FABULOUS start to our year! Things here have gone absolutely incredible and I know that the staff would agree- we are so proud of your Blue Jays! Marthasville has implemented new and improved building-wide expectations that revolve around our Blue Jay Pride (see below) and ended the first week with a whole school behavior bootcamp. Each class rotated around the building hearing from a variety of faculty and staff about behavior expectations and ways to show Blue Jay Pride. We ended with popsicles and compliments for awesome behavior. Marthasville teachers and staff appreciate the partnerships we have with our families and community. Thank you for continuously supporting our school! I have a feeling this year is going to be the best yet. Fridays we will show Blue Jay Pride, so feel free to have your child wear blue or any SDOW, MVL, or Blue Jay gear. Our PTG will be pushing out spirit wear order forms! If you ever need help or have questions or concerns, feel free to reach out via email, call, or FB messenger- I am here for you.

Have a spectacular September!

Most Caring,

Mrs. Kristen Daffron
