Martin Middle School Friday Focus
What do you LOVE about Martin Middle School?
Last week we asked you what do you LOVE about Martin Middle School. We received over a hundred responses from the Martin Family about what you all LOVE about Martin. The responses have been captured and placed in a word cloud below. The word cloud takes repeated words and makes them bigger and bigger. The more similar the responses the more they stand out in the word cloud. It is cool to see that you all did this exercise independently, but check out the similarities in word cloud. It is obvious to see the feelings that our teammates share. Check it out:
Parent Communication Success!
Our Grade 6 Team called over 66% of our families over the past two weeks! That is over 140 calls! The positive phone calls make a huge impact on student outcomes. Think about how happy you feel when someone gives you a compliment. We LOVE it. As you know, OUR KIDS need and deserve our love. It goes a long way when you reach to a family to let them know how OUR KIDS are doing in school. Thank you for everyone who reached out a made a phone call. Even though Grade 6 was the BOMB (Breakfast On Mr. Black) winner, it is important to know that EVERYONE who called home made a difference in a person’s life.
