A Message from the Office

-Car Rider Safety Reminders This Time of Year –

Please use the drop off lane whenever possible & pull all the way forward (students must exit the right side of the vehicle [curbside] for safety purposes). If choosing not to use the car rider line, parents must park your vehicle (vehicle must be parked in an appropriate lined parking space). An adult must accompany the student safely to the crosswalk. Students are not permitted to walk through the parking lot and drop off lane unattended. These procedures are directly related to ensuring the safety of all of our students here at Martin. Thank you for your help and cooperation, we can’t do it without you!

OUR WEEK IN REVIEW by Student Journalist - Nick L.

Last week we did a lot of things for the wax museum. The wax museum was a lot of fun. I hope you had a great time at the wax museum because all the students loved it. This week we did a lot of things. On Monday we played 20 pin knock down in Gym. On Tuesday we had D.A.R.E. Dare is a program that help us to not do drugs. D.A.R.E. means Define. Assess .Respond. Evaluate. On Wednesday we took our math test and in music we played recorders. On Thursday we had pizza lunch and we watched Ratatouille and passed out Valentines. This week we had a lot of fun.
