Principal's Message

Parents,

Thank you to all Murwood families for your support and participation this year.  We have had a wonderful year filled with exciting academic challenges and great community building activities.  Our hope is that you will keep learning over the summer by reading, writing in a journal, and solving some good, chewy math problems.  Best wishes to our fifth graders as they head off to middle school.  You are an incredible group and we know you will be successful.
 
Thanks to our incredible teachers and staff for going over and above every day to model collaborative learning and working tirelessly to do what is right for students every day.
 
Thanks, too, Danielle Scheg and to our PTA for all the wonderful community building activities.  It is my hope that we can continue to build up our community and grow together in the coming year.

Thank you to Sabrina Jones and all who came out to volunteer on Monday for Track and Field Day, it was an amazing day.  All of your time and efforts do not go unnoticed.  The children had such a great time!!

As I close out my first year as President, I want to say it was such a GREAT year and I am thankful that I GOT TO serve on the Executive Board with so many amazing individuals.  Mrs. Nenni, thank you for all of your support and extra time and efforts you have put in to make the school year amazing.  Thank you to the 2016/2017 Executive Board for giving so much time and energy to ensure we would have the BEST year here at Murwood.  To the incoming board, thank you for stepping out and volunteering.  I know we will have a great year serving our school!!

I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to each and every person who came out to support the PTA not only in a volunteer role, but as a participant of our events.  These events could not happen without the amazing support we have here at Murwood.
