A Reminder About Student Drop-Off Procedures In the Morning!

As the school year begins, please remember that if you are dropping off your student in the morning, the doors are opened for students at 8:45 a.m.  To ensure the safety of your child please do not drop off your student until you see a Martic staff member at the drop-off/pick-up doors.  The student drop off area is located at the west side of the school building.

Also, if your child(ren) are arriving at school after our 9:00 a.m. start – please remember that you must accompany them into the office and sign them in to the building for the day.  Please do not send them into the building without you if school is already in session.

MATH UPDATE

math

Dear Martic families,

To better prepare our elementary students for the increased state expectations and to specifically meet the changes brought about by the adoption of the Pennsylvania Core Standards, we have shifted to the use of new math materials that align with these necessary changes. These new McGraw Hill “My Math” materials are an extension of the McGraw Hill “Math Connects” materials we used from kindergarten through grade five and the Glenco, Course One materials we used in grade six for the past five years. These new, carefully aligned materials will expose our students to the increased need for the application of the concepts taught and better prepare our students for the future.

We are fortunate to have been able to provide our teachers and students with the resources needed to stay current. Please note: There will also be an on-line component available to parents/guardians starting with October 1st that will include tutorials, re-teaching guides and practice materials to help you assist your child at home as needed.

Should your child be experiencing particular difficulty, please make sure you communicate this to your child’s classroom teacher so that re-teaching guides can be sent home until our on-line option is available to you or should you not have internet access at home.

We appreciate your continued support at home. If you have any questions regarding the new series, please contact Dr. Sugra.

Which liquid will float?

Inquiring minds in 6-A needed to find an answer to this question today during their science investigation.    Children were quick to compare their predictions to the actual answer.    Take a look at some of our future scientists and talk to them about their findings tonight.
