April Minutes

April 13, 2016

Dear Martel Community, 

April Vacation will begin after school this Friday, April 15, 2016 and we will return to 

school Monday, April 25, 2016. I hope all have an enjoyable break. 

MEA testing will be finishing this Friday. NWEA testing will begin after vacation. 

Concerning the new elementary school: the straw vote result was to proceed to the next 

step in the process. There will be a formal vote on June 14, 2016 for Lewiston voters. 

Please pay close attention to notes coming from teachers as there will be many special 

events coming up in May and June. 

Mrs. Carol Labonte (Martel’s School Nutrition Manager since 1995) has announced her 

retirement effective April 30. She has literally served Martel School for all these years in the 

most professional manner. We will all miss her very much. She told me that she does not want a 

fuss and she will be upset with me in announcing her retirement in the newsletter. 

Mrs. Sue Vachon (Martel’s cook since 1995) has also announced her retirement effective 

April 20. We wish her the best as she helps her family out. She has served so many students and 

staff and we sincerely thank her for her service. 

We hope all of the students enjoyed the forty-five foot sub sandwich last month. I hope 

you saw Mr. Webster’s tweet. 

Mr. Ben Gamache has been promoted to lead custodian and will be working days. 

Kindergarten registration for Martel School will be Friday, May 13 from 9:00 to 2:30. 

Please see the attached flyer. 

Also please note the flyer on “TV Turn off Week”.
