The students have grown so much as readers and leaners this year. The teachers and staff want to see the children hold on to all the knowledge they have gained. One way to do this is through submersing your children in good books this summer!
A summer reading challenge will be coming home in your child’s report card. Students who read at least 600 minutes this summer will have a special time to celebrate when returning in the fall. Click on the link below for more information.
Barnes and Noble is also offering a summer reading incentive. By simply reading any 8 books, filling out the form, and taking the completed form back to Barnes and Noble, your child can earn a free book. Click on the link below for more information.
I wish you all a very safe and relaxing summer. I have truly enjoyed my time here at Martic. You are one amazing community! ~Mrs. Transue
The 6th grade Challenge Day event raised over $700 for 13 different charities. Wow! The 6th graders worked very hard on this project, and I’m sure the charities they represented are extremely grateful! Way to go 6th grade!
The Millersville Borough Police investigation of the SUV incident reported this morning has been successfully resolved. The individual in question was located and is working for the International House in Millersville. He was asking for help in setting up the yard sale when he approached the child. Police are satisfied that he is not a threat to the community. Student safety is always our top priority. Thank you for your help in keeping all children safe.
Our annual Challenge Day, compliments of our 6th graders, is scheduled for Tuesday, May 28, 2013. Please remember to bring along your quarters. All proceeds will go to the 6th graders’ charity of choice.
