Volume 1: Week 18 December 21, 2018
Dear Martell Families,
What an incredible week at Martell! Our community is so fortunate. Our students had a great week of teaching and learning. I am in awe of how we can focus in on academics and yet still have fun. This means we have special staff and families guiding our students daily.
From the bottom of my heart - THANK YOU! Thank you for allowing me to lead this fantastic school. It's an honor. We surely could not do this without the support of our families. Thank you for all you do for your children to encourage and support learning.
The office staff and myself thank you for all the treats, goodies, presents, cards and love this past week. We are overwhelmed by your kindness! Please know we are grateful and we thank you.
Over the long two week holiday, if you travel, travel safely. If you are home, I hope you enjoy your family and friends and make wonderful new memories.
SEE YOU MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2019
