Principal Peckham's Weekly Message

Greetings  Martin Middle School families! 


Third quarter is coming to a successful close, and we look forward to embarking on the 4th quarter of this school year on Wednesday!


A few reminders for all our families before we get into the other calendar events…..




Student course registration for 2019-2020:

Registration for 2019-2020 has started this week! Current 6th and 7th graders should be completing their registration using their powerschool accounts. Students should have received registration cards to get an overview of the elective options. They will be making primary and alternate selections. This is not a first come first serve process and requests need to be made by Friday, April 5th.  Please see your counselor with questions.


World Language Night:

Martin Middle School’s Annual World Language Night is coming up next Thursday night! We hope that many of our families will come join us for some food, fun, and learning around the different cultures and languages within our school community. It starts at 6:00pm on Thursday night, and you do not need to be in a world language class at Martin to attend, or contribute!  Our planning committee is still seeking donations of food to for the event. Please visit the sign-up in this voicemail transcript, or email Ms. Lisa Troxell at to contribute.
