Dear Martell families,

Next week is the FUN RUN week! This is an exciting week and we are thrilled. It is also Spirit Week, a week to have fun with themes and dress. Please see the fun days below and we encourage your child to participate!


We also have a wonderful family Service Project coming up at Blake's Orchard for Forgotten Harvest. What a wonderful way to show school spirit, through and outreach to help others.


Hope to see many of you at the Fun Run! Your child's grade level time is listed below!


4th Grade parents, please take note of the parent meeting for the Mackinaw trip! Mark you calendars now! We will meet on Monday, October 3 in the media center from 6-6:30pm. This is a parent only meeting. Thank you!


In Partnership,

Michelle Barsh

CHANGES TO YOUR CHILD'S DISMISSAL

~If your child's pick up will be different than normal, please ALWAYS send a note to your child’s teacher.


~Please do NOT rely on email to a teacher. Teachers are teaching during the day, and sometimes cannot get back to their computer if it's a late message! We do not want to miss a dismissal message.


~We will not vary your child’s end of the day routine unless we have a note from you.


~Should you have an emergency and need to change his/her schedule, please call the office before 2:30pm
