January Family Newsletter


Dear Marthasville Students and Families,

Happy 2023!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and New Year's! I was able to spend some quality time with my family and took every moment I could to enjoy being with my daughter before sending her back to ship life in the Navy. I am feeling rejuventated and excited to start 3rd quarter strong. My personal word for the new year is GROW. My intentions and focus have been set and I am ready to conquer this year with a fresh mind and passion for our students and school. I have missed our Blue Jays so much and can't wait to see them again so soon! Be on the lookout for a Save the Date to be coming home this month regarding PTG's Trivia Night in April. We have so many fun events planned for the rest of this school year and I appreciate the ongoing support from our families. The committment to our students succeeding and growing is evident and I am always proud to be your child's Principal. Don't forget, if you ever have questions, concerns, or need anything, don't hesitate to reach out. You can call me at 636-231-2650, email kristen.daffron@sdowmo.org or message me on our Facebook page. Thank you for being AWESOME FAMILIES!!

Cheers to an amazing start to 2nd Semester!

Most Caring,

Mrs. Kristen Daffron

Winter Reading BINGO

How it works:

  1. Sign up for the Winter Reading BINGO at READsquared, pick up a BINGO card at your local branch of Scenic Regional Library, or download a BINGO card at home (Kids, Teen/Adult).
  2. Between December 19, 2022 – February 18, 2023, complete a BINGO diagonally, vertically or horizontally. Bring your completed BINGO card to your local branch and get a free book for every BINGO, up to a maximum of 5 books. Only one game card per person.

Tips & Resources:

Are you looking for winter reading BINGO inspiration? Below are a few ways to read your way to a BINGO:

  • Visit your favorite Scenic branch location and get in-person reading suggestions from our staff and browse themed book displays.
  • Find links below to reading lists for all ages in many BINGO categories, as well as links to downloadable content.
  • As always, listening counts!
