Welcome from the Principal

    • Welcome and welcome back, Martin Families!

      I’m Kareem Nelson, Principal of Martin Elementary. Home of the Tigers! On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I want to let you know that we are thrilled with the opportunity to capture, engage, and grow your children!  I am particularly grateful for the blessing of this community of staff, students, and families. Despite these unprecedented times in our world, community, and school, I’m optimistic that we will persevere and have a successful academic year. I am eager to see the gains that each student will make academically and socially. 

      We have had many hours of good discussion about how the campus will meet the safety needs of our students. This year, a strong emphasis is placed on social-emotional learning as we continue to implement the SEL framework and practices. It is important that we reach the whole child.

      Partnering and building relationships with families will be crucial this year. I appreciate your support as you work with our teachers and staff to ensure that your child receives what he/she needs to be safe and successful here at Martin. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website and Facebook page for important updates and information. 

      We value our partnership with families.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions or concerns. Stay safe!


      Kareem Nelson, M.Ed.
