Our mission is to inspire all students to be confident, passionate learners with the courage and skills to lead their lives with integrity, while contributing to our global community with creativity and compassion

 

Here at Martin Avenue, learners come first. Our district mission statement states that in North Bellmore, we strive "...to inspire all students to be confident, passionate learners with the courage and skills to lead their lives with integrity, while contributing to our global community with creativity and compassion." We strive to embody that mission statement every day; to promote that mission throughout the hallways and classrooms of Martin Avenue in order to establish the strong foundation necessary for our students to go forth from elementary school ready to spread their wings and fly.

Our faculty and staff members are passionate about helping students to become life­-long learners. We believe wholeheartedly that every child can learn, and we work hard each day to ensure that all students experience success on a daily basis. Martin Avenue promotes a positive educational environment, rich with authentic, meaningful learning experiences while supporting the initiatives of our school district and adhering to the New York State Next Generation Learning Standards. Our staff and faculty members are each committed to helping students to develop a growth mindset by modeling one themselves, engaging in professional development opportunities and consistently honing their instructional practices to ensure that students receive the high quality education that they deserve.

A parent is every child's first teacher, and we believe that the best way to support a child is through a meaningful partnership between school and family. We encourage on-going open and honest communication between teachers and parents. Please also know that my door is always open. I truly welcome the opportunity to meet with students, as well as parents/guardians, and I truly value the strong home-school connection developed here at Martin Avenue. Please, always feel free to contact me to discuss questions or concerns, or to share a success story.

Martin Avenue Card Creators Spread Cheer

Martin Avenue Card Creators Spread Cheer thumbnail179354

Making the holiday season a little brighter is the mission for students at Martin Avenue Elementary School who did so by making cards for residents of a local nursing home.

Children completed hundreds of cards which will be delivered to the Belair Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, less than two miles from the school. The project was spearheaded by first grade teacher Mary Carrea and students from all grade levels joined in the effort to spread joy.

Ms. Carrea explained that a Girl Scout troop she leads in Long Beach is doing a similar project for a nursing home there, and thought it would be a great community service initiative for Martin Avenue. By sending the cards to Belair, students would be helping others right in their community. She added that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many nursing homes are limiting visitors, so this is a great way to bring the residents some holiday cheer.

Students had 18 different design templates to choose from for their cards, representing Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year’s Day. In addition to coloring the pictures, they wrote personal messages.
