PTO Meeting reminder

Our monthly PTO meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 5th at 7 PM in our school library.   We will be discussing end of the year activities.   We will also be looking for some volunteers who are willing to take over some of the committees.  Specifically we are looking for someone to take over the book fair and the SWEEPS program.    Both of these programs are coordinated by faithful volunteers who are willing to take the time and train you before they resign.   Please consider being a volunteer for your children.   If we cannot find volunteers to fill these positions, it will results in our school not have these programs in the future.   This is the sad reality if we cannot solidify volunteers.     Thank you for considering taking on one of these tasks.  If we all volunteer a little it makes it easier for the overall PTO organization.

Attention 6th grade parents!!!!

The yearbook committee is busy assembling the yearbook for the 2014-2015 school year.  Every 6th grade student will be receiving a FREE yearbook this year, courtesy of the Martic PTO.  Our goal each year is to have a positive send-off message from parents or guardians for each of the these students to be included in the yearbook.


If you would like to include a special message, please complete the attached the survey. (click here) or  provide us with your message (under 25 words) and the student name.  Return it to your child’s teacher.  All submissions must be received by March 20, 2015 to be included in the yearbook.  One submission per child, unless special circumstances.   Thank you.
