Upcoming September Events and Other Marticville Middle School News

Thurs, Sept 21 – Meet the Teacher Night (5-7pm). This is an open house format, and you are free to visit classrooms and meet your child’s teachers as your schedule permits. We do ask that questions and comments are kept very brief and general due to the number of people who attend. If you have specific questions and concerns, please schedule a time that you can come in to meet with the teacher and/or team.
Fri, Sept 22  – Early dismissal at 12:20 for middle school students only
Mon, Sept 25  – The midpoint of Marking Period 1 already. Please remember to check grades on Sapphire. Information on how to do this was sent home at the beginning of the year.
Mon. Sept 25 – Oct 31  – Yearbook Fundraiser: Info coming home this week. For every item sold, earn $1 off the price of your      yearbook
Tues, Sept 26  – End of Cultural Arts MMP1
Tues, Sept 26  – Picture Day in the morning. Information about that was sent home on last week.
Wed, Sept 27  – Begin Cultural Arts MMP2 (second block on schedule)

Other Opportunities for your child(ren) – 

  • Penn Manor will be having a PINK OUT on October 19, 2017.  Wear pink to support the American Cancer Society and the fight against cancer.  You should have received an order form to complete if you are interested in purchasing a “PM COMETS Fight For a Cure” shirt (pink with navy and white lettering). Cost is $10 for youth or adult short sleeve shirt up to XL.  2X or higher is $14.  Checks should be made out to “CAP”.  Students can hand the forms into the office or their homeroom teacher.  Orders are due by September 20, 2017.
  • We are offering an  “After School Academic Hour” again this year, often referred to as After School Tutoring, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30. I have attached a pdf explaining the program. It is a great time for students to stay after school for extra help in subjects they may be struggling with or a time to do homework. If you are interested in signing up, please return the attached form to the office prior to starting. Students can join any time of the year.
  • Mr Evans has also started  “After School Weight Training” on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30. I have also attached that form which must be completed and returned prior to starting. Please return it to the office. Again, students can join any time during the school year.
  • Also attached is information on how to help our school through sending in Box Tops for Education as well as information about a food drive to support the Loft in Millersville. This organization assists many families in need in the Penn Manor School District.
