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.
The school store is open and ready to assist you and your child in purchasing school supplies. The following are available for your convenience:
Markers (wide or thin)
3 x 5 cards (white)
3 x 5 cards (colored)
Wooden Pencils (2)
If you wish to purchase supplies from the school store, please write your child's name and room number on an envelope, along with the desired item(s) and quantity you wish to purchase, amount enclosed, and include your cash payment. Exact change or small bills will be much appreciated. Orders should be turned in to your child's homeroom teacher in the morning. Once ready, your order will be delivered to your child's homeroom teacher for distribution.

Please remember that tuition payments still need to be made during the summer months. For your convenience, the school office is open every Tuesday thru Thursday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon. Please call first to make sure someone is there to take your payment.
Checks can also be mailed to St. Martha School or, as a last resort, dropped off at the rectory.
Please note that all tuition and fees must be up-to-date in order for your child to start school in September. Thank you for your timely tuition payments!
Over the summer, we will still be accepting pre-orders. They must be dropped off to the office by Sunday during our normal business hours and your order can be picked up on Thursday of that same week.
Thank you for supporting our Scrip Program! Remember that purchasing scrip benefits you in three ways:
1. It allows you to lower your tuition because of the scrip credit you earn.
2. It allows St. Martha School to keep tuition costs at a lower rate.
3. It helps you earn the "good steward" tuition rate.
St. Martha's Stars!
