Good afternoon, Martin Families. This is Diann Kearney, Principal of Martin Gifted and Talented Magnet Middle School, with this week's calendar update.

I regret to inform you that due to technical difficulties we were unable to issue 3rd quarter report cards today. These technical difficulties were experienced by many schools throughout the system and the matter has been brought to the attention of the state and school system. Our goal is to have report cards ready for distribution on Monday, April 14. Thank you for your understanding with this matter.Broughton Football will hold an important Parent Meeting on April 16 at 6 PM in the BHS Cafeteria. We will discuss the summer calendar and fall practice schedule, program expectations, and parent volunteer opportunities. Please visit www.broughtonfootball.com for more information. Contact Head Coach Billy Lane with questions at blane@wcpss.net.

Attention 8th grade students - Summer Driver Education Registration Forms are available in Student Services.  Students must be 14 1/2 years old by the first day of Drivers Ed class in order to register.  Forms must be completed and returned to Student Services by Friday, April 18th.

You are invited to join the Martin community at our annual "World Languages Night" on Wednesday, April 16 at 6:00 in the gym and cafeteria. The evening will consist of international food, crafts, games, dances, and performances. Rounding out the evening, Mr. Greg Whit, renowned drum circle facilitator, will perform and lead participants in a drum circle at 7:30. "World Languages Night" is a free event, open to Martin students and families. We hope you will join us!

Thank you for your attention to these important matters and have a restful weekend!

We are in need of proctors for our upcoming tests! The job of the proctor involves circulating the classroom to ensure that the standardized test is being administered in a fair, unbiased, and safe environment. All proctors are paired with Martin teachers and are in no way responsible for administering the test. We would greatly appreciate you donating your time to this necessary cause! Proctors are needed and required for testing on the dates below.

Proctors should arrive at Martin by 7:30am on the morning of testing. Classrooms will complete testing by 11:30am each day.

Tuesday, June 3rd (12 proctors needed)
Thursday, June 5th (50 proctors needed)
Friday, June 6th (50 proctors needed)
Tuesday, June 10th (15 proctors needed)

You can sign up for proctor training by contacting Christy Saunders at csaunders2@wcpss.net or 919-881-4980.

Proctor training is held in our Media Center at 8-8:30am or 12:30-1:00pm on the following dates:
Tuesday, April 29th
Thursday, May 1st
Wednesday, May 7th
Tuesday, May 13th Thursday,

When will registration for electives take place?  May 8? Yes, rising 6th grade students will receive their elective cards/info at the orientation on May 8th.  

Are electives by lottery, or is seniority given by grade? Electives are given by seniority, 8th first, 7th second, and 6th last.  Cards are randomly pulled within each grade level.   

Are elective decisions completed on 5/8?  Students can complete their elective registration at the orientation on May 8th, but they will have until the due date (not sure this date??) to turn the card in.   

Will the choices be available before 5/8? No, all rising 6th grade students will receive this information on May 8th.  If you are absent, your card will be sent to your elementary school counselor and will be given to you at your elementary school.

We would like to invite our new families to attend our New Student Orientation and Registration event on Thursday, May 8th from 5:30-7pm. Families will enter at the gym  entrances (doors open at 5:30p) to sign-in and receive registration and orientation materials and will then move to the auditorium for the orientation presentation, which will begin at 6pm.  Students will learn about the elective registration process and receive the materials they need to register for elective courses.  You may complete registration on site at this event or return materials to our Counseling and Student Services Office by May 16th.  If you are unable to attend this event, elective registration materials will be sent to your current WCPSS school via courier on Friday, May 9th.  If you are not currently enrolled in WCPSS and cannot attend this event, please contact Mr. Hill to make an appointment to pick up your materials. Please note that student schedules for the 2014-15 school year will not be finalized until August so we are not able to share team or academic course information at this time. 

Please contact Andrew Hill, Magnet Coordinator, if you have any questions. ahill2@wcpss.net
