The Martin School Store will be re-opening next Tuesday. Students can "shop" for some fun items during their lunch times. Please remember that a max amount a student can spend is $10. We will not break larger bills. Yes, we have had students bring in $100 bills, and they were turned away. I wish my parents sent me with a $100 :)
We use our Chromebooks everyday during all subjects. If your child would like to bring in a wireless mouse to use that is allowed. However, please discuss using the wireless mouse properly with your child. It will be their responsibility to take care of their wireless mouse and use it carefully.
This week in math we covered...
If you have a car rider...
The administration of Martin Elementary School wants to let the parents of students who are car riders know how grateful we are to the 97% of you who follow the safety rules we have put into place to keep our students safe in the parking lot of our school. You do a great job!
For a quick reminder we do have some car-rider drop off expectations for safety.
Please know that you really have two options: 1) wait in the parent car line or 2) park your car and walk your child to the cross walk.
- Please do NOT to drive your child to the cross walk and let him or her out. There is just too much traffic, and it is not safe to do that.
- Please do not cut through the parking spaces instead of following the car line to the exit.
- In the afternoon when the school bus picks up students at the end of the car line, please do not pass the bus if the red lights are flashing and students are boarding the bus.
Our expectations are not meant to inconvenience you. They are meant to keep our students safe, and we really do appreciate your cooperation.
