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.

Reminder the Penn Manor School District does not have school on August 29-September 1st. We will return to school on Tuesday, September 2nd. Enjoy the long holiday weekend.
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.
Please watch for the Martic Handbook to come home this week! The handbook contains valuable information – including procedures for early dismissals, pre-planned trips, bus expectations, etc. Plan on reviewing the handbook with your family and feel free to contact the school office if you have any questions or concerns. You can reach the office at 717-284-4128.
Come one, come all to a back to school movie night. It will be held in our school cafeteria. We will be showing RIO 2. Please have children bring sleeping bags, bean bags, pillows and comfy stuff to sit on. Popcorn will be provided by the PTO for FREE. Soft pretzels, candy and drinks will be for sale. It is going to be a great evening for all who attend. We can’t wait to see you.
Martic Elementary School will be hosting Meet the Teacher Night on Thursday, September 11th from 4:00 PM- 6:00 PM. All parents and guardians are welcome to come out to spend some time with your child’s teacher. You will get to see the classroom and learn about the many happenings in your child’s day. We look forward to seeing you then.
