Good evening Martin Middle School families, this is your Principal, Lacey Peckham with a Sunday voicemail to prepare you for the events of the week.
In Athletics this week we will have our Spring sports tryouts:
Girls Softball and boys and girls track will be Monday from 2:30-4:30
Boys Soccer Tuesday 2:30 to 4:30
Any interested students need to make sure they have an updated physical in order to try out.
8th grade families: Last Friday your students received a postcard from Mrs. Clark giving them and you some important dates for our upcoming High School Registration. Please ask to see this postcard and sign the “blue” positive behavior ticket they received as well, confirming that you have seen this postcard. We will hold prize drawings each day next week during lunch for those tickets returned to Mrs. Clark. In case you haven’t seen it, we will host parent sessions on Monday March 13th and we will have additional reminder in the coming weeks.
This week is 2017 LOVE THE BUS/School Bus Drivers Appreciation Week. If your student rides a bus, please show your driver some love and appreciation this week- a thank you can go a long way. The PTA is collecting $5 gift cards to distribute to all of our drivers, so if you are interested in helping, please see the PTA email newsletter or call our Main office.
In other news, we are starting a new BoxTops for Education Collection Competition. For the next 2 weeks, the PTA is asking you to bring in all of your unexpired Boxtops for education and put them in the red bin in the lobby. The homeroom that turns in the most boxtops wins a Bruegger’s bagel breakfast party and the student who turns in the most overall wins a $25 visa gift card. Our spring submission to General Mills is March 1st in order to receive another check for this year. The school received a check for $819.70 in December- Thank you for making the time to get those boxtops in!
Lastly, we have set the date for our annual Big Red Mustang Madness event. On March 10th from 5:30-8:00 we will host our yearly community event to help raise funds for martin Athletics and Arts programs. This event includes a staff and student basketball game, performances from our Arts groups, a silent auction, tons of raffle drawings. We will also have a special viewing lounge for the ACC tournament games, so please add this date to your calendars. Again that is March 10th at 5:30.
This concludes my voicemail for this week. Hope you have a great night. We’ll see you bright and early tomorrow!
