Principal Peckham's Weekly Message

Greetings  Martin Middle School families!

Believe it or not, all students will be back in school by this time next week. I hope you are getting excited!

 

I have a few reminders and updates for the week so please note the items below.

Reminders/Information:

6th & 7th Grade students, we look forward to seeing you during your designated times on Friday, August 23rd.

 

6th Grade families will have team presentations at 8:30 Friday, August 23rd. Families will want to arrive a little early to have time to park and find your team assignment.  There will also be time after the presentations to sign up for powerschools and to volunteer, and also check your transportation.

 

7th Grade Families will have an introductory presentation and face time with their team staff on Friday as well, from 11:00-12:00 in the auditorium.

 

We are excited to welcome everyone back soon and no need to worry if you cannot make either of these events- there will be numerous homeroom lists posted Monday morning with staff to help students get to their homerooms. Reminder that 6th and 7th grade students will not have finalized schedules until the first day of school.

 

Medication?

If you have a student who has emergency medication stored at the school, or who takes it daily from school- you can stop by anytime next week to check it in with our front office. Our summer office hours are 7:30-3:00. Friday may be busy so it isn’t a bad idea to swing by next week if you can. 

 

Interested in helping with PTA Hospitality?

Members of our parent community do an excellent job of kicking off the year making our staff feel loved and well-fed! If you are interested and willing to support this effort, there are 2-3 opportunities to either donate or volunteer to help set up and clean up. Click on the links in the transcript to find a way to help! Thank you so much in advance for supporting our staff in this way!

Fall Sports Info:

 

For all our families with hopeful fall athletes, this is another reminder about getting updated sports physicals. If you have had a physical recently, please double check those dates to make sure they will be good for the fall sports window. For a copy of the Athletics Form you can visit the parent link on our website, or use the link provided below:

Fall Sports Parent Meeting:

Any parents who have a 7th or 8th grader who may be interested in playing a Fall sport (cheerleading, football, girls soccer or girls volleyball) should plan to join us August 21st at 6pm. in the auditorium. Coach Basaldu will be presenting some key information that night, taking questions, and introducing the fall coaches. 

That concludes my news for the week. Enjoy these last days of summer!

 

Yours,

Lacey Peckham, Principal
