An addition to the Martic playground

An exciting addition is coming to the Martic playground.    There will be an addition of a new picnic table with a dome like covering where children can sit and play games, read books in the shade or just hang out and talk to each other.    Two sample drawings are provided below and I am confident the children will put it to great use.

The funds were available to purchase this new addition based on all of the families at Martic Elementary pitching in for our fundraisers last year.   We cannot thank you enough for all of the effort you put into these fundraisers so our children can have great assemblies, field trips and equipment.   We are excited about some of the prospects pending for this year.

Outside dining was a hit!

Let’s enjoy lunch….outside.

Tomorrow Martic students will be dining in our beautiful courtyard.   If the children wish to bring a towel or blanket to sit on outside that is fine.  We have a few picnic tables and benches and a good amount of concrete so they can dine wherever they wish.   If any child does not wish to eat outside, there will be a table provided in the cafeteria.
