Principal Peckham's Weekly Message

Good evening Martin Middle School families!

I hope you all have enjoyed the long weekend. 

I want to take a quick moment to recognize and thank all servicemen and veterans within our community. Today, we honor you and are so grateful for your service to our country.


As we prepare for the remainder of this week, I have the  following reminders and information.


Report Cards for Quarter 1:

Please note that report cards went home  with all students on Friday. If you have not received yours yet, please check your student’s backpack. You can also reach out to our Student Services Office for another copy as needed.  Additionally, all 8th graders should have received a 2017-18 WCPSS Performance Task Score Reports. This was a pilot assessment conducted with all 7th graders last year, and the letter should outline the score and rationale. If you have any additional questions, you can reach out to our testing coordinator, Rebecca West (

7th Grade Health Rotation:

Reminder that all 7th Graders are going through a 1-week Reproductive Health rotation. A letter came home a few weeks ago with details. If you need another copy of the opt out letter, they are available at our main office.
