The Mart ISD Enrichment Foundation treated all Mart ISD employees to a shopping spree on their first day back to work. Each employee was allowed up to $100 to spend at either Mardel or Target. This is the second year that the foundation has made this generous event happen for the staff. Teachers and staff spend much of their own money on their classrooms and students. The Foundation wanted to help ease this burden. What a great way to start off the school year!
