The Fulton Theatre Field Trip!

On Friday, December 5th the Martic student body and staff will have the opportunity to travel to The Fulton Theatre for a presentation of “The Nutcracker”.    This is an all school event that is an extension of our school day.  If for some reason your child will not be in attendance in the morning, please note we will be returning to school by 11:30 AM and regular instruction in the classroom for the afternoon will resume.   We expect everyone to be in attendance.

If you have not already paid for your son or daughter’s ticket, please send that in ASAP.   If there is a financial hardship for your family, please do not hesitate to talk to your child’s teacher or anyone in the school office.

If you have any questions regarding this special event, please do not hesitate to contact the school office at 717-284-4128.

You’re Invited To A Veteran’s Day Celebration!

Martic will be hosting a Veteran’s Day Celebration on Monday, November 10th from 9:15 a.m. – 9:45 a.m.   We would like to invite all veterans to join us for this special day.   Please extend an invitation to family members who have served and community members who reside in the Martic area.    Encourage them to wear their uniforms if possible.

During our program there will be a special tribute to each division of the armed forces performed by the Martic Elementary Chorus.  A local musician, Michael McDonald, will sing and a special Veteran’s Day Poem will be read by some of our Martic students.  It will be a great day.

Earth’s Journey

Today was a fun day at Martic.   We hosted Cliff Sunflower at our school.  He provided an assembly where every child had a part in a culminating assembly at the end of the day.   Please ask your child about it and thank the PTO for providing this assembly for us.   A special shout out to the six parent volunteers who graciously donated their whole day to making this day a huge success.   They were:  Bobbi Jo Bland, Melissa Anderson, Amber Adams, Suzie Smith, Ashley Smith and Maureen Greenawalt.   Great job ladies.

The Scarecrow

I thought it would be fun to share one perspective from a student about the life of a scarecrow.  This literary piece is festive for the fall season.

Bright and Neon stands out at Martic

We had some fun today celebrating with Neon Colors today, because kids at Martic are too bright for drugs and bullying.   Remember tomorrow is:  wear your favorite jersey, because we work as a team to stop drugs and bullying.

PA Department of Education Is Looking For Your Feedback!

The Pennsylvania Department of Education has developed a website to solicit feedback from the public on the eligible content in English language arts and mathematics in grades three through eight, and Algebra I and Literature at the secondary level.

Pennsylvania’s eligible content statements are a straightforward set of what we want students to know and do at each grade level, and serve as the blueprint for the state assessments.

This website was designed to promote public awareness and understanding of the eligible content and obtain feedback from Pennsylvania educators, parents and the general public on the eligible content statements, their purpose, and value.

If after gathering feedback, we conclude that significant changes are needed, we will engage in a revision process via statewide public hearings.

The website is currently populated with eligible content for grade three English language arts and mathematics and is available for public review.

By mid-November, the website will be expanded to encompass the eligible content for grades three through eight and Algebra I and Literature.

Please share this information with educators, parents, community members, and other interested parties and encourage them to visit The PA Department of Education Website and review the content.  The feedback we receive will be invaluable as we evaluate and refine our career and postsecondary expectations for our students.
