Principal Peckham's Weekly Message

Greetings  Martin Middle School families, 

I hope you all enjoyed your time away from school and are refreshed as we finish out November.

I only have have a few brief announcements and calendar items to remind you about in this week's message.

New Holiday Spirit wear is available now for pre-order only until December 5th.  In- stock spirit wear is available for purchase on -line as well. All items can be seen and ordered following the link  on the Martin PTA Website and the Martin homepage, Be sure to see the new styles and place your orders today!!!


Collecting linens for “Sweeter Dreams”!

On behalf of the Martin PTA and Builders Club, we are putting out a call for donations!  Social workers in Wake County estimate approximately 5,000 students in our community are sleeping on floors or sharing crowded beds with others. The Green Chair Project is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization working with WCPSS social workers and guidance counselors to promote stability and academic success by ending child bedlessness through a program called Sweeter Dreams.  Please consider donating new (preferably gender neutral), twin-sized sheet sets, comforters, bed in a bags, and/or mattress protectors.  Drop off donations in the Martin front office before end of day November 27th.  New beds will be set-up and delivered to WCPSS students by mid-December!  Because of you, children in Wake County will have a place to rest their head and a space to call their own!  Again, any donation of new twin sheets, comforters, or mattress pads can be dropped off at the main office or student services until Nov. 27th.   Thank you!


Calendar items:


Thursday - November 29th - 6:00pm- PTA Mtg! Guests from Magnet High Schools (specifically Broughton and Enloe);
