All students entering Kindergarten, 6th Grade, and high school need physicals with their shot records on file. Any student entering the school district for the first time, regardless of grade, also needs a physical with his/her shot record on file. All students entering Kindergarten, 3rd, and 7th Grade need dental exams on file. Students will be given forms prior to leaving school in June.
Students who will be taking medication, such as an inhaler, while in school, need a completed MED-1 form on file. This form contains the doctor's order and gives me and the school your permission to treat your child in your absence. This form is available in the main office.

St. Martha Parish School is an elementary school whose mission is to teach the message and values of Jesus Christ in an environment where all students feel accepted, fulfilled, and loved. We are committed to providing an enriching atmosphere which encourages academic success. We strive to work in partnership with families to foster the Catholic community of school, home, and parish.
The Scrip Office will be closed from December 25th through January 4th in observance of the Christmas holidays and New Year's. The last pre-order guaranteed to arrive before Christmas break is due by Sunday, December 14th.
Please remember that, in order to maintain your "good steward" tuition rate, each family must purchase at least $50 per week in scrip ($200 per month). Think about what you spend on weekly groceries and a fill-up at the gas station. Why not buy scrip to make those purchases? Scrip is the same as cash, but you earn tuition credit with every purchase. The more you purchase, the more you earn!
Christmas with the Kids!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Our students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade will be performing for us, once again, in their annual holiday show, Christmas with the Kids!
The show will be held on Monday, December 22nd, at 6:30 p.m. in Archbishop Ryan High School's auditorium. Tickets are $2.00 per person. Children 5 and younger are free. The last day to pre-purchase tickets through school will be Friday, December 19th. Tickets at the door will be $4.00 each. Due to the large crowd, no tickets will be held at the door for any family. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Suzanne Blesi Memorial Scholarship Fund.
All the teachers and their students work very hard to prepare this show each year. It's thoroughly entertaining and a great way to get in the holiday spirit! We hope you and your families will mark this date on your calendar and join us for what promises to be a great night!
