All “Signs” at Martin Middle School Point to Wildcat Pride!
As you drive around East Providence during the late summer you can’t help but notice the blue and white signs as part of the city’s landscape. At the end of July, Martin Middle School teachers and staff drove all around from Wampanoag Trail to Newport Avenue and beyond delivering lawn signs to welcome new students and families to Martin Middle School. The lawn signs read, “You Just Can’t Hide That WILDCAT PRIDE.”
We all know that leaving elementary and moving to middle school can be a big adjustment in a child’s life. They are transitioning from a smaller school to larger school, using lockers, changing classes many more times a day. At MMS, we want our students and families to feel welcome and let them know they are a member of the Wildcat Family.
When the incoming 6th graders look out their window or walk out their door, they see the Wildcat Pride lawn sign and know that they already have adults who care about them waiting for them at Martin. The teachers at Martin Middle School are committed to making our school a welcoming home away from home for all of our kids and families. The staff went the extra mile going to the homes and neighborhoods of their future Wildcats which demonstrates how much we care about OUR KIDS!
