As we begin to close an amazing school year we are forced to say goodbye to some of our dear teachers and staff members. This year we will say goodbye to Mr. Wayne Martin and Mrs. Sue Frese and wish them a happy retirement. They both have served the teaching profession well and are on to their ways to new journeys ahead of them. Congratulations!
We will also say goodbye to Mrs. Tricia Adams and Mrs. Jenny Steffy. Mrs. Adams is transferring to Hambright Elementary School to join a new first grade team and Mrs. Steffy is moving to Pequea to teach art in one location. We wish both of these ladies the absolute best and will miss them.
Next year we will welcome Mrs. Amanda Davis as our new 1st grade teacher. She comes to us with years experience in another district. A fun and familiar face will return to Martic for second grade. Mrs. Lisa Bohannon will return to our school to team with Mrs. Bushong in second grade. Since we have a bubble class moving into third grade, we needed to hire another teacher. Mr. Glenn Wolfe, who is currently teaching Applied Engineering at LeTort and Conestoga, will be teaching third grade for us next year. Fourth grade, we will watch Mr. Jeb Thompson move on down the hallway to fill the classroom at the end of the hallway. Mrs. Aucott and Mr. Thompson will join together to be our new fourth grade team. We will also welcome a new art teacher. Ms. Maria Anderson will be joining our school team with some exciting new art ideas. These are some of the exciting changes we will see at Martic next year.
