Work Hard, Be Your Best Self, Do The Right Thing

Welcome to the Martha Jones School. The core values of the school, which can best be summarized as academic excellence, respect for others, and personal responsibility, underlie all that we do. With the implementation of a rigorous academic curriculum in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and social competencies and high expectations for student and teacher engagement, our students thrive. I am delighted to welcome you to Martha Jones.

Message from the Principal

Welcoming Committee - One of the major goals of the Martha Jones school community is that all students and families feel welcomed, safe, and supported.  We have families of all different configurations from numerous cultures and countries, who speak many languages, celebrate various holidays, and have wonderful stories and backgrounds to share.  In order to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all of our families, I will be starting a Welcoming Committee. If you are interested in participating in the Welcoming Committee (the committee may decide on a different name), please sign up here.  The committee will look for ways to celebrate similarities and differences among families, ensure that all school community members are recognized, and plan events that help all children learn about others and embrace diversity.  I hope to have one or two meeting this year and really kick off some fun events for next year.Image result for diversity

Carpool Reminder - PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON SPRUCE DRIVE OR THE CUL-DE-SAC ON SPRUCE DRIVE to pick up your child. We did not want cars parked and traffic moving where the walkers are walking.  If you are picking up your child, please use the carpool lane and make sure children can enter and exit your car from the passenger side. Thank you.

Our very fashionable teachers got dressed up for the 5th-grade field trip to the Christa McAuliffe Museum last Friday.  This is a favorite field trip among the students and teachers. Expedition Mars brings science to life, giving students the exciting opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom to a real-life scenario in our state-of-the-art simulated learning environment. Through both project and problem-based learning, students taking part in the mission have to complete tasks to ensure success. At the same time, they may encounter emergencies or unexpected problems that require critical thinking and decision-making skills to find resolutions. Each student plays a part in the mission, interacts with at least one physical hands-on lab, and is responsible for finishing several tasks. Teamwork is crucial because if one member of the class fails to complete his or her job, the entire mission may be at risk.
