Mrs. Murphy's Musings

News from Room 22 - June 1, 2015

Open House

It was fantastic to see so many of you at Open House. Thank you for coming to our room to see some of the amazing work we completed this year. It has been wonderful to see how far the children have come.


You may have received an email on Friday afternoon that contained the files for the movies that the children created on their iPads. The email would have read: has sent you a file via WeTransfer

This is a legitimate email from me that contains the movies.

Happy viewing :)
