October 23, 2022 Mustang News
Good evening Mustang families. We hope you have had a wonderful weekend.
Thank you for your flexibility and support on Friday as we experienced a water main break at the front of the school late Thursday afternoon. WCPSS maintenance worked late into the night Thursday and throughout the day on Friday to locate and repair the break. Water was restored to the building late Friday afternoon. While we have some concrete and asphalt repair that needs to be done, the parking lot and sidewalk are safe to access. We will have school on a regular schedule on Monday.
Martin will use our remaining “banked” day to account for the unexpected school closure on Friday and will not make up the day. If the district experiences inclement weather this winter and uses banked hours for the inclement weather day, we will need to make that inclement weather day up. The make up day would be determined at that point.
Spirit Week: Spirit Week is NOT extended to Monday. Students should use their normal backpacks to carry their school materials.
Virtual Family Coffee: We will hold our October Coffee on October 28th, virtually, at 8am. The meet code is meet.google.com/ysi-gsck-rxw.
6th Grade Mixer: The Sixth Grade Mixer is Wednesday from 2:30-4:00 and is a wonderful opportunity for 6th graders to spend time with each other afterschool with lots of activities and fun! Remember to register by Monday to allow the Student Council to plan accordingly.
Fall Play: The Theatre Department proudly presents Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon on Thursday (10/27) and Friday (10/28) in the Martin Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30 and the curtain goes up at 7:00. Admission is $5 at the door.
8th Grade Families: All 8th grade families interested in a magnet high school are encouraged to attend the WCPSS Magnet Fair on Saturday, October 29th. This year’s fair is in person and at Enloe High School from 9-12. This is a great opportunity for students to get a glimpse of all magnet and early college high schools in the district.
School Picture Makeup Day: School picture makeup day is November 2nd. Any student absent on or enrolled after September 22 will have their picture taken. Additionally, any student who is returning a full picture packet or has a note from a parent requesting retakes can have new pictures taken. To order online, visit Lifetouch and search “Find My Picture Day” on the right side of the page.
Art Club: Art Club meets on Tuesday from 2:20 – 4pm. Rides should pick up in the bus loop.
All Missing Work Due: All missing work is due on Thursday. Students are encouraged to check their PowerSchool accounts and talk with their teachers about outstanding assignments and assessments.

From the PTA: The ALL Fun No Fuss Fall Fundraiser has been extended through Monday due to the school closure on Friday. We have not yet reached our goal of $32,000 and there is still time to donate.
Carpool Crazies will be in carpool on Monday to collect donation.
Penny Wars will close on Monday and a winning grade level will be announced. Students can add points to their grade’s jar or subtract from the others’. What is your strategy?
