Midweek Mustang News

Happy Thursday afternoon Mustang families. We have a couple items that we wanted to get to you before the weekend.


We are excited to offer opportunities for Martin students to have school pictures taken, including by appointment next week. Families can sign up for a time between 9am and 4pm on Thursday, October 8th and 8am and 3pm on Friday, October 9th. Pictures will be taken in the media center and all students will have a health screening prior to entering the building. Face coverings will be required in the building but they can be removed for the picture. Families will be asked to wait in the car as only students will be permitted in the building.


To book an appointment, please visit We will have additional opportunities for students to have their portraits taken later in the 2nd quarter. More information can be found on the Martin website.


We have some exciting news with you regarding the 2021 yearbook. Yes, we are having a yearbook, and guess what? You’re officially on the yearbook staff! Yes, you read that right! This year, more than ever, we ask that you join us. This is going to be an unbelievable book and one that will be treasured forever.


What are some ways you could help us achieve this task? Consider:

-Follow us on Social Media. We will post invites to share your pictures on various topics. Just use this link to send us photos.

-When you see an email regarding the yearbook, open it! Complete the form requesting information and pictures. Easy! 

-If you or a parent you know takes pictures at student events, please let us know. We want to feature every student in various aspects of their life.  Look for those moments when they are just playing with their pet, working in their virtual learning space, playing their instrument, or enjoying a family meal. Other options include students participating in sports outside of school, virtual club meetings or events, theatre performances, art projects or just candids of your kids. You get it! Send us pictures of everything so your student can be included.


This yearbook is unique in that it will be created by the whole school. Thank you in advance for being a part of this historic year.  Don’t forget to reserve your copy at or call 1.877.767.5217.  The book is on sale for the lowest price of the year until 10/23.  


Finally, the next three Wednesdays, Oct. 7, Oct. 14 and Oct. 21, will be asynchronous learning days for students. The asynchronous learning days will be opportunities for student to get caught up on assignments and assessments or have a much-needed break from technology. Teachers will be available to offer help or answer questions through Google Meets. In planning for Wednesday, we encourage all families to review grades in Homebase/PowerSchool to identify assignments that are needing attention. We hope each student takes full advantage of this opportunity.
