So… as you know the weather is beautiful and kids have quickly acquired Spring FEVER. This new energy has played havoc on discipline referrals to my office. I remember well that this usually happens in May, but I would like to request your help. Can you please remind your son or daughter that your expectations for good behavior goes until the very last day of school (Friday, June 5th)? This reminder and a reference that your child’s teacher and principal have the same expectation might help our school to stay calm during this transition to warmer weather and excitement for SUMMER.
It is my hope that we can prevent behaviors before they happen. Thanks for your help.
B.A.G.S. stands for Buy All Groceries for Schools. This is a great way for us to earn money for the students and special events that we sponsor at Martic Elementary. We have grocery certificates in the form of gift cards for sale. We offer gift cards from Musser’s Market, Darrenkamp’s Market and Weis Market. Everyone has to grocery shop, so instead of paying at the register, simply send us a check made out to Martic PTO for the grocery store of your choice and we make a 5% profit off of the sale.
You can send your orders in every Monday, Wednesday or Friday. These are the days that B.A.G.S. will be filled. Grocery certificates will be returned to you the same day. Please send a check and an order form from the attached document. Once you order with us once, we will send you a reorder envelope that makes reordering very easy.
For your first order, please use the order form below.

This week every child got to visit the mobile ag lab. Within the lab there was a science lesson that every child was asked to work on a hands on experiment. I was able to capture some pictures from this event. Please take time to ask your child about what they learned and thank the members from our PTO for paying for the return of this amazing lab.
