Message from the Principal’s Office


Dear Martha Jones School Community,


It was great to see our community come together at last night's Curriculum Night. It was a pleasure to see so many engaged and enthusiastic parents and caregivers actively participating in their child's academic journey. The energy and enthusiasm as students led you through their classrooms and daily routines was what we hoped the night would accomplish. While there were physical handouts of the curriculum available last night, if you were unable to attend, here are the Massachusetts Curricular Standards that we use at each grade level. If you were able to attend last night, I am asking for your feedback to gauge the effectiveness of our approach and ways we can improve.


With the weather getting cooler, I anticipate that students will be wearing more layers. Please label your students clothing. It's amazing how often clothing gets lost as we enter the cooler months.


Finally, with the new year, we know you may feel inundated with forms, School Dismissal Manager, announcments, etc. An important task that we ask families to do every year is to keep Aspen up to date with annual sign offs and permissions, and we thank all the families that have completed those sign offs this fall.


In reviewing responses, it appears that there may be some confusion about the 'Media Permission' option. We often update our Martha Jones website and the District website with photos of our students. In addition, we also make videos highlighting your child's school day for our Martha Jones families to enjoy. Occasionally, the District office may select some pictures to share through media platforms.


If you inadvertently selected 'No' for the 'Media Permission' option in your Aspen account or if you wish to change your previous selection, please return to your student(s)' account in Aspen and make the appropriate adjustment.


If you have any questions, please contact the Martha Jones school office at 781 326 7500 xt. 6321

A Letter from the PTO Co-President

Dear Martha Jones Families,

My name is Katy DiMare and I am the parent of a MJS 2nd grader, Jack, and a future MJS student, Mary Kate. I am PTO co-president this year along with Kristen Donahue (parent of 4th grader Gavin, kindergartener Eila and Ronan who just started middle school!) and I am incredibly excited for the 2023-2024 school year at Martha Jones. We kicked off the year with the Kindergarten Popsicle Party, the PTO Meet & Greet and the Family Picnic. You have also recently received an invitation for our Cornhole Tournament (Friday, October 6) and will learn more soon about our annual Halloween Haunted Hallway (Friday, October 27) along with many other exciting events throughout the year. I truly hope you will join us!

I would like to highlight a few of our PTO activities and initiatives for the upcoming school year. We have many enrichment activities planned to include classroom visits by the Discovery Museum and school-wide events such as Traditions of Chinese Acrobatics and a visit from a historical figure by Sheryl Faye.

We continuously fund Teacher Innovation Grants. Last year, we awarded applications that included 3D pens for the library, drones for Technology and “Math Mysteries” for the 5th grade.

Teacher appreciation is an important initiative of the PTO. We love our teachers! We recently provided a back-to-school lunch and provided each teacher a stipend to fund classroom supplies. We have more appreciation activities planned for the year through our PTO Hospitality and Teacher Appreciation committees.

We will fund end-of-year celebration for our graduating 5th grade class with a memorable gift and their yearbook.

We have recently funded an outdoor garden and our MJ Garden Committee has installed 6 (3 x 8) raised garden beds (one for each grade) which is serving as an outdoor classroom for students to learn and explore. We have already received great feedback from the kindergarten teachers!

We cannot do all of this without your support! We are aiming to raise $7,000 from our annual PTO drive. Every donation, no matter the amount, is appreciated and important in helping us reach our goals. Please visit to make your donation today.

While on our site, please log in or register to ensure your contact information is correct. In the past, we have asked caregivers to join the PTO and a benefit would be access to the school directory. This year, we are granting access to all families who register on our site.

Lastly, please consider joining one of our committees. We have many volunteer opportunities to accommodate different interests and availability.

Please feel free to reach out to me anytime with questions, ideas or feedback. I hope to see you at our first PTO meeting of this school year next Tuesday, September 26 at 7 p.m. in the MJS library.
