Here is the information for “Meet Next Years Teacher”:

Every year we plan a “move up event” for the purpose of children meeting their new teacher for the following year. This happens during the day and is helpful for children to transition to the next grade level and also helps students see who will be in their classroom next year.

We plan to host our move up day again this year, but it will be virtually. Every child will get to spend about 20 minutes with their new classroom teacher. This special event will happen on May 28th. The schedule is below. In order for you to join the session, you will need to get the log in link from your current classroom teacher. They will email you. To plan ahead, please see the schedule below.

Moving into 1st grade: 9:30 AM (this is for current kindergarten students)
Moving into 2nd grade: 10:00 AM (this is for current first graders)
Moving into 3rd grade: 10:30 AM (this is for current second graders)
Moving into 4th grade: 12:30 PM (this is for current third graders)
Moving into 5th grade: 11:30 AM (this is for current fourth graders)
Moving into 6th grade: 12:00 PM (this is for current fifth graders)

Here is the information for “Picking Up Items from School”:

We would like to invite all of our families to enjoy a drive-thru visit to Martic to pick up your child’s belongings on Tuesday, May 26th. This will include spiritwear and all of their belongings.  We are keeping our fingers crossed about yearbooks, but do not think we will have them by this date.     Families may pick up their belongings between 3:00 PM-7:00 PM.   This is not a requirement, but if you would like these items we will be available to distribute these in drive thru format.  

In order to help us coordinate this effort, we would appreciate the following: 

  • Please have a sign with a child’s name displayed in the front window of the car.   
  • Please stay inside your car and a staff member will hand you the bags.
  • We ask that the person lowering the car window to receive the bags be wearing a mask, as our staff will be wearing masks.           
  • Depending on the traffic behind you at the time, please be mindful that conversations will need to be brief.                                                       
  • Remember that we are smiling behind our masks. 

Please also use this time if you need to return items to your teachers or the school.  As long as you are staying in the district your child may keep the school computer.  If you are moving out of the district please return it on May 26th.

Classroom Desks and Cubbies are almost Cleaned Out!

Phew! Students’ desks and cubbies are almost entirely sorted. Students’ belonging are placed in bags with their names on them. In the future, a date will be given as to when you can pick them up from the school. Remember to fill out the survey or message me about the contents of your student’s desk, if you haven’t already. Have a great end of the week!

Updates for Monday 5/4

I hope everyone was able to take a break and enjoy the weekend. The work for this week is posted to Google Classroom and the District Remote Learning Site. There will be a Google Class Meet tomorrow at 10:45.  The link will be available in Google Classroom.  Remember to fill out the survey for student classroom belongings.  I will be in school this week, which means my cell service will be a little spotty, therefore if you need additional office hours please reach out. Everyone is doing a great job!
