Message from the Principal


I am Monica de la Garza-Conness and I am the proud principal of Martin Middle School. I am thrilled to begin the new school year at MMS. Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at MMS by continuing to build strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and the community. I am proud to share that last year, Martin Middle School not only met the accountability standard from TEA, but also received two Distinction Designations in Student Achievement & Academic Achievement: Social Studies. I anticipate that we will continue to achieve even greater success as we work together to support the academic, social, and emotional growith of our Martin family. Go eagles!
