Martin Street Memo

All families are invited to attend Martin Street’s first community Iftar dinner on Thursday, April 4th at 7:30 P.M.! Dates and water will be provided to break fast. Families are asked to bring a nut-free, halal food item to share with other attendees. Drawing, colouring and henna stations will be available.

Food Drive - March 28 - April 12: We are running a food drive supporting Food4Kids Halton. Our goal is to collect 1800 non-perishable food items (approximately 3 items/student in our school). We have been asked to focus on collecting canned meat, canned pasta, canned beans in tomato sauce, condensed canned soup and boxed macaroni and cheese, but will happily accept any non-perishable items that families can donate. A big shout out to the Grade 4, 5 & 6 students who are helping to organize this important event. Please send in your donations with your student(s).

Student of Excellence: Every year each HDSB school chooses a recipient for the prestigious Student of Excellence Award. This year, we are proud to share that Ashna Summan will be representing Martin Street as our Student of Excellence. Ashna’s passion for learning is evident in the way she engages in class, asks thoughtful questions, and seeks out opportunities for growth and development. Ashna is kind and thoughtful. She is always looking out for others and she is admired by her peers. She takes initiative to seek opportunities to learn, takes on challenging assignments and contributes to the learning environment. Ashna collaborates and respects her teachers and peers while staying naturally curious and eager to learn. She leads by example in order to motivate and encourage others to achieve their full potential, while staying humble in recognizing that there is always more to learn and ways to improve. Ashna’s excellence extends far beyond the classroom. In the greater Martin Street community, she continues to show her dedication and leadership through her involvement as a student Senator. Ashna is also involved in MSPS’s Leadership team, which involves running school initiatives, fundraisers, and coordinating school events. This is just some of the work she does through the Team. Ashna has made a lasting impact on our school community.
