Music Performance Cancelled: The music performance that was scheduled for this coming Saturday at the Martinsburg SDA Church has been cancelled. The church is having a special health seminar all weekend. Our 1st All School Music Performance will be on October 19 for the “Blessings Program”.
Steps to Hope: An Optimistic Approach to Alzheimer’s With so many questions about mental health issues and the fear of Alzheimer’s, many people are confused and don’t know how to approach the subject or deal with it constructively. In this FREE educational seminar, you will learn more about what Alzheimer’s disease is and how to effectively lower your chances of developing it and make strides in reversing it. The seminar will begin on Friday evening, at 7 pm at the Martinsburg SDA Church. The series will continue during the 11:00 am church service on Saturday and again in the afternoon at 2:00 pm.
Staff Development: On Monday, September 9, is Staff Development Day and school will be closed. Please remember to mark on your calendar that we will have a full day of school on September 23.
School Pictures: Individual pictures will be taken on Tuesday, September 10. All students will receive a picture packet at no cost, (part of registration fees) and will have the opportunity to purchase additional pictures. If a student, grades Preschool -2nd, choose to wear something special for their picture, then a parent would need to stay till their child’s picture is taken to help them change back into school uniform. Students in grades 3-7 can change into uniform without parent helping.
Back to School/Church Team Building Picnic: On Sunday, September 15, at 3:30 pm students and parents will be participating in a Team Building Picnic at the Martinsburg SDA Church. Every family is asked to bring a picnic style food such as pasta, sandwiches, salads, deviled eggs, fruit, veggies and dip, chips and cookies to share (vegetarian only, please). We will start out with fun team building activities in which teams will rotate through different stations, including parents. We will end our time with a potluck picnic. We are still in need of some volunteers to assist with certain things during the picnic. If you would be willing to assist with something, please contact Ms. Baggett as soon as possible. Help is needed with food setup, table/chairs, tent setup, clean up, etc.
Dress Down Friday: As you are aware, Friday's have been designated as our school dress down day. This year, we have revamped the "dress down" code to be the following: Bottoms...Students may wear jean pants, jean skirts, jean skorts, jean shorts or jean capris only. There should be no holes in any of the bottoms worn. All skirts should be no higher than the knee, skorts or shorts need to be a reasonable length not to be shorter than 1-2 inches above the knee. Tops...School uniform t-shirts or polo style shirts only. Students do not have to Dress Down on Fridays, they can wear regular school clothes.
