11/27 Update

I hope everyone had a restful and memorable holiday break with family and friends. I am so thankful for the welcoming return to Martic;  as I  am eager to continue this educational journey with your child.

Here is what we are learning this week!

Math: We are continuing practicing our multiplication facts. In your child’s folder you will find “ice cream” math facts.  The kiddos are encouraged to practice their facts at home!

Field Trip Reminders!

I can’t believe our Field Trip is this FRIDAY!! Hopefully the weather forecast will stay true!

Once again, a HUGE thank you to all the parent volunteers who are attending the trip. If you are riding the bus please arrive at Martic no later than 9:00. If you are meeting us at Landis Valley Museum please arrive no later than 9:45.

Chaperones: If you would like to take your child home after our return, please have a note Friday morning. I will send all notes to Mrs. Stringer before our departure. If you choose this option, you do not have to stop in the office at the end of the day.  

We would greatly appreciate if all lunches would be put in disposal bags. If you ordered one from the cafe, we will have it ready for your child.

If your kiddo is bringing money for the museum store please secure it in a baggy or wallet.

Thank you!
