Friday nights were made for pizza!
Last school year our PTA hosted our first annual Pizza Kit Giveaway and it was a huge success. We are bringing back this awesome event on Friday, September 27th. Our PTA will provide pizza kits from Extreme Pizza that families can pick up between 4:00-6:00. Please join us by signing up for this event.
Our first Site Council meeting is coming up at the end of the month. Thank you to the parents who volunteered. I will be reaching out to them directly. We make data-based decisions to support our students' learning. I will be reviewing the results of last spring's "Youth Truth" family survey and outlining a preliminary plan for the year. Everyone is welcome!
I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about the amazing enrichment programs our students enjoy at Murwood. In Art your child will imagine, execute, reflect, and refine in addition to creating, presenting, and connecting to art and their work. In Music your child will develop the skills necessary to produce music, reflect, critique, and connect personal experience to music. Science Lab is one of experimentation, test, failure, and discovery, and covers ecosystems to organisms.
I want to thank our families and community members who come together to support WCEF because these programs are not possible without additional funding from WCEF. State funding is just not enough to cover the cost. So thank you for giving the gift of creativity, discovery, and experimentation to our Mustangs!
Shonah Tovah to all of our families celebrating Rosh Hashanah.
