Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,


HAPPY NEW YEAR! Martin City School has ended the month of December with many exciting activities taking place (Elk’s hoop shoot, basketball games, wrestling meets, band/choir concert, and winter room parties for elementary).  We have had several students, families, and staff members involved in these activities and encourage everyone to continue to participate.


January is a very exciting time of year. We will continue to host basketball games/tournament and have awards assemblies. We will be in session 20 days during the month of January and encourage everyone to be safe and healthy.  


At Martin City School and within the Grandview C-4 School district we have committed to show continuous improvement through data-driven decision making, allowing students to look at and set goals to increase learning, to challenge students to think critically and creatively and incorporate ways for student to be problem-solvers. The Grandview C-4 motto is “Educational Excellence, Unlimited Potential” and at Martin City we believe that all students have unlimited potential for greatness and can reach their goals of excellence.


Again, if we may assist you in anyway please feel free to contact the school. We are here to help Martin City families not only with school issues but also with any other items that may arise.
