Principal Peckham's Weekly Message

Greetings Martin Middle School families!

I hope that all of our families had a successful end to this choppy week. I am grateful that we were able balance student and family safety this week while also get back into a bit of school routine.

Many of you, along with numerous student and staff, have inquired about possible support and/or relief efforts for our neighboring communities who were tragically impacted by Hurricane/Tropical Storm Florence.  Please know that several magnet schools, including Martin, are joining forces to “divide and conquer” item donation drives. It is our hope that by doing so we can provide a larger quantity of all of the necessities to those in need. Please stay tuned for specific information about how the Martin community will participate in an upcoming voicemail

Tonight! (Sept. 21st) - 6:30 p.m.- 8:30 - 7th & 8th Grade Dance.  Cost is $5 and students can come with cash to buy snacks and drinks. This is a casual event, and school dress code and student behavioral expectations apply. Parents, please keep in mind that for the dance, your students will all be dropped off at the morning carpool drop-off location.  Also, it is a long day for all staff that will be staying to supervise so please be prompt for pick up at 8:30.


Calendar items:

First, the 6th Grade Social Mixer is  next Tuesday, Sept. 25th from 2:30-4:30. Registration for this event has been closed. Students who had planned to attend needed to pay and register by Friday (Sept.21) at lunch.

Finally, we also want to remind all 7th grade parents that the deadline to present your updated immunization records is quickly approaching.  Today homeroom teachers sent home purple slips with any students who are missing this updated information as of today.

Interested in Club Baseball? There are opportunities for 6th, 7th and 8th graders who are interested and fall workouts begin soon.  Any interested families can pick up a flier in our Main Office or off of our website to get more details.

That concludes my reminders and calendar information for the week. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
