Mrs. Murphy's Musings

News from Room 22 - February 5, 2016

President Reports

On Friday, February 12 the children will give their president reports to the class. Remember to have your child practice reading their information so they understand all of the words in their report. The reports do NOT need to be memorized. Feel free to allow your child to be creative and make a poster, dress up, or bring pictures to share.

Digital Dash Information

Wow! What amazing little runners we have in our room! Thank you to the parents and grandparents who came out to cheer us on. Another huge thank you to all the parents who volunteered to mark laps and help make the event a success. Didn't we look fabulous in red? Go Murphy's Mad Dashers!!

Class Shirts

Please wash and keep your child's Murphy's Mad Dashers t-shirt. We will wear them again for the Legoland Field Trip in March and for Field Day in June. Thanks!

Valentine's Day

The children are welcome to bring Valentine's to give to all of their friends in room 22 on Friday, February 12. REMEMBER - NO CANDY OR FOOD. It is completely optional. My only request is that the children bring one for every student in the class if they decide to participate. We will make bags in the classroom to hold Valentine's . This is not a party, so we will not need parent volunteers. We have 22 students total. Here is the class list:























Math Fun

The children enjoyed playing some place value games this week as we started our new math module.
