THANK YOU, PTO and our MARTELL FAMILIES!
I am really excited and looking forward to continuing the process and staying involved to be part of and support decisions that affect our school.
A HUGE shout out to ALISON HENDRY. Mrs. Hendry served as our liaison with me for an entire school year last year, as well as this fall. She gave much of her time and talents to support and teach our community. Thanks, Alison, for all you did and will still do!
Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. West we also thank you. You were also instrumental in this process and we are grateful!!!
Each of these 3 parents represented our community beautifully. Not a surprise, we have the best parents out there. :)
STUDENT LED ASSEMBLIES START!
Skits are involved, jokes, references to Core Values and a review of all things Martell that are happening.
Thank you Mrs. Childress and Ms. Keaser for facilitating this great work!
