shell Essay Contest

As part of our CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION, Shell Martinez announces a Student Essay Contest. This competition is open to all students within the Martinez Unified School District.  Click here for the flyer. 

In recent years, “sustainability” and “sustainable development” have become more than just buzzwords, but also major goals for our state and national leaders, as well as Shell Martinez. To us, sustainable development means working with governments, partners, communities and others to deliver more energy in economically, socially and environmentally responsible ways.
Here at Shell Martinez, we’ve already reduced our greenhouse gas emissions equal to that generated by about 22,000 homes — and are exploring projects to do even more, not to mention save about 1,000 gallons of water a minute. This is what sustainability means to us.
In this competition we challenge you to move beyond the buzz and explore what sustainability means to you. How do you understand sustainability? What is the meaning of sustainability in your own life, in your local community, and in the greater world? We look forward to your thoughts.

September is Attendance Awareness Month!

Attendance gaps turn into achievement gaps!  Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.

CA Physical Education Requirement Accountability

Students in grades 1-5, at all four elementary schools in the Martinez Unified School District, actively engage in the California requirement of 200 minutes of Physical Education every 10 days.  In order to assure compliance with this legal requirement, each site has established “Prep C” protocols for those grade levels that may not reach the 200 minute requirements due to minimum days, teacher prep, and / or assemblies.  These established practices of running laps, dance & movement, and cardio-conditioning outside of the PE class are documented and verified by the site administration on a monthly basis.
