Good evening Mustang families. We hope you have made it through Ian without much impact and that our students were able to enjoy the day of Friday and, maybe even use it to get caught up on assignments.
Custodial Appreciation Week: This week marks Custodial Appreciation Week and Martin is fortunate to have two amazing custodians who go above and beyond to keep our school looking great! Please take a moment to thank Ms. Kpa and Mr. Ksor. Mr. Ksor started at Martin two weeks ago and is a wonderful addition!
First Quarter Progress Reports: If you have not already, review your student’s grades in PowerSchool/Parent Portal. We are at the midpoint of the 1st quarter and it is a good time to see where students stand academically. If you are unable to log in, ask your student to log into their PowerSchool account and review grades with you. To schedule a conference, contact the teachers or grade level counselors.

Military Connected Families: To ensure that the unique needs of military-connected students are met, state law requires that schools collect information on military-connected students.
