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.

Shining Star - “Thank you”



Last Friday I was delivered a most special surprise.  Thanks to you, I was chosen as the first Shining Star by the Foundation for Westwood Education.  To say I was floored does not explain how I felt.  I am truly honored, humbled and grateful.  I am privileged to have a job that I love so much and allows me to interact with and get to know so many fantastic kids and families. Thank you so very much.  Sincerely, Celeste Mahoney

 

Tech Tidbit -

Last June, Martha Jones was awarded a grant from Blue Hills Bank to purchase twelve WeDo 2.0 Lego Education Robotic kits. Recently, the kits were used in Ms. Curtin’s and Mrs. Crowley’s grade 3 classrooms.  Working in pairs, students constructed a robot called Milo by following a step-by-step plan. The robot was then connected via Bluetooth to an iPad or Chromebook for the programming aspect. Students were presented three challenges that required a combination of problem solving, collaboration, trial and error, and persistence.  In one challenge, Milo needed to move forward 1 yard, stop and then reverse for 1.5 yards. There are certainly some of tomorrow’s future computer scientists and engineers at the Martha Jones school.  Thank you Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation! ~ Tech Blog
