Principal's Message

Attendance matters

Thank you to all the families and students who are making a renewed effort to be on time and at school every day when they are healthy! If you’re having trouble getting to school, we want to help! Please call the school office. This is the time of year when winter weather and children’s illnesses can take a toll on school attendance. It’s still important to get your children to school every day possible.

Kindness Week

January 23-27 is Kindness Week in WCSD. With the support of our Student Leadership, we will be coordinating various activities for students in support of the spirit of kindness. I look forward to our students joining together to support and celebrate our efforts to ensure all students are treated with kindness and respect.

Congratulations to all of our 4th and 5th grade spellers who participated in last week's spelling bee. This year's winner, Ethan R. will now practice in the county spelling bee! He will have his Murwood community cheering him on!

This week you should receive information regarding our upcoming Talent Show and Science Fair. These are both wonderful opportunities for students to explore their knowledge and talents.

Happy Lunar New Year to all of our families who will be celebrating!

Notes From The Office

Return to Murwood Survey

Believe it or not it is already time to start planning our enrollment for the 2023-24 school year!! This process begins with our TK & Kindergarten pre-registration (the priority window closes on 1/31/23). If your child is currently enrolled in TK or K you DO NOT need to register them for next year. They will automatically roll up to the next grade level as do our 1st thru 5th graders.

Our next step is to determine who will be returning for the 2023-24 school year. Your assistance in helping us with this is greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to complete our RETURN TO MURWOOD SURVEY. Even if you are unsure of your plans for next year, please submit a response. If your plans change at any time before the start of the new school year, simply email the office.

As always, thank you for your support.

Mrs. Kaye

Office Manager
