About Me

A message from Dr. Bonnie Groen-Olson

Martino Families,
I am excited to start another school year and consider it an honor and a privilege to be the instructional leader of Alex M. Martino Junior High School.  At Martino we encourage and support students to be well rounded, active learners.  We have several sports, clubs and activities to meet students' interests and encourage our students to be a part of all we have to offer them.  Our school spirit can be felt throughout our building.  

On behalf of our outstanding faculty and support staff, we welcome you to Martino Junior High School!

Go Vikings!
