Welcome to Glenn L. Martin Elementary School!
Welcome to Glenn L. Martin Elementary School. As the principal at Martin, my goal is to work with our school staff and our community to provide a high quality education for all students. At Martin, we truly believe that ALL Martin students CAN and WILL learn. During the 2017-18 school year, our focus is twofold:
1) Provide a safe, nurturing learning environment for all of our students. The "Martin Way" is to be respectful, responsible, and safe! We are practicing the skills of good citizenship.
2) Prepare every student for college and career by helping them develop their English language skills within the context of reading, writing, math, science, social studies and physical education. We are teaching our students to reach the rigorous Common Core State Standards. Our slogan is "Analyze it. Claim it. Prove it.", which speaks to our need to think deeply about topics and find evidence to support our claims about all of our topics of study.
Our motto is a quote from a former teacher, Marilyn Powell Berns, “Go Forth and Achieve.“ She is a teacher and friend who had high expectations for herself, her students, her friends and her family. We want all Martin students to “Go Forth and Achieve” in college, career, and personal life. We work toward this motto by providing quality, standards-based instruction to all students.
