Crock pots aplenty, crock pots galore

Parents and our PTO sponsored an amazing luncheon at the end of the year for teachers and staff.  It was a great way to end our year.  Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness.

Left behind from this luncheon was a collection of crock pots that totaled over 6 crock pots.  If you are missing a crock pot, please swing by Martic to pick yours up.  Mr. Wimer and Mrs. Reis are t the building every day from 6:00 AM-4:30 until the end of next week.

Thank you again!

A farewell tribute from our Pequea first and second graders!

Today as we said goodbye to our Pequea friends, there were some sad hearts.   We have developed some wonderful friends and it was a hard day to say “See you later”.    The joy at our assembly was hearing the first and second graders sing this song.  The children had worked on the song throughout the year to dazzle us at our end of the year assembly.   Aren’t they the sweetest?  Click on the link below.   I also provided a copy of the words so you can read the words.

Our Martic Data ~ look how we have grown

It is important as a team of educators that we are always aware of how kids are progressing through the year.    This is the reason we assess three times a year so we can see the growth.    It is also important that we take time to inform our parents and community members about the growth our children are making throughout the year.   This is a picture of our data wall, which is displayed as soon as you enter our building on the right side of the hallway.    I am proud of these academic gains and have the wonderful educators, supportive parents and hard working kids to credit for these accomplishments.    This is a proud principal moment.   🙂

Summer Reading Challenge!

We have shared hard copies of our annual reading incentive for students.   We are posting it online so if you need another copy, you can download one by clicking here: Martic 2016 Summer Reading.  It is valuable for your child to continue reading over the summer to ensure they do not regress.   There is always a wonderful surprise for the children who meet this criteria.

Dutton looks different!

As you know, Mr. Dutton was cutting his hair.  Today we had fun with it.  We even teased Mr. Dutton that Mrs. Duff was going to cut his hair with a chainsaw.  He looked a little scared.  🙂    I assure you it was a fun light up toy.

Thank you to Mrs. Tanya Wise for coming in and helping the children to cut his hair.   For this event we raised $281.00 in ticket sales coupled with staff support for the Penn Manor Cares community.   Six children were selected to cut his hair.  The children randomly selected were:  Kayla Shertzer 4F, Faith Witmer 3B, Jordan Steckler 4F, Lyndsey Osborne 6M, Aidan Tyson 5E and Max Bushong 6M.  Mrs. Dutton served as a substitute for one child who was absent today.   They had a blast!

As an update, our handsome fellow still is the talented Mr. Dutton.  Music continues as usual, so the myth started by some of the children that Mr. Dutton might lose his superpowers is false.  🙂

6th grade graduation

After you work with children for seven years, you know they are ready to move to the next level of their education.   It tugs at your heartstrings to let them go, but you have faith that you prepared them well and they are ready for the next chapter of their lives.    It is with great pride that we send off our 6th graders!   Take a look at our recognition video by clicking here!
