Principal Peckham's Weekly Message

Good afternoon Martin Middle School families, 

I hope you all had a great weekend and are gearing up for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday this week.




60th Birthday Celebration! 

On Tuesday, Nov 26th in honor of the 60th day of our 60th year, all students will receive a special treat at lunch.  Also, on Nov. 26th we will have a 60s spirit day, where we are encouraging all students and staff to dress according to their favorite 60s fashion. In addition to announcing our student winners of the trivia contest, we will also likely be selecting “best dressed” student from each homeroom for their 60s attire to also receive a special prize. 

Finally- don’t forget about our 60th Birthday T-shirt contest! Students are encouraged to submit designs for the t-shirt to the front office or using the link on the flier. If you need another copy of the requirements, please see the copy attached below and linked on our website.
