Mrs. Murphy's Musings

News from Room 22


I am so excited to be working with all of you and your wonderful children! Our first two days have gone very smoothly and I am so impressed with the children and their enthusiasm for learning. We are going to have an amazing year of growth together.

Back To School Night - Thursday, Aug. 29 6:15-7:30 pm in Room 22

I hope to see all of the parents at the Back To School Night presentation later this week. This is an evening where I give an overview of the curriculum, activities, expectations, and procedures for our big year in first grade. I can also answer any questions you may have about first grade.

Tips for First Grade

*LABEL EVERYTHING! (Jackets, backpacks, lunch boxes, etc.)

*Send a small snack in a labeled, disposable bag. Our time to eat and play at the morning recess is only 15 minutes and it is best if the children have something quick to eat, quickly throw away their trash, and go off to play with friends.

*Pick a spot to meet after school and make sure that your child and I both know where that spot is.

*Please be sure children are wearing close-toed shoes that allow for lots of running and playing on the playground.
