Muraski Mustang Memo

From the desk of Mrs. J. Peters, Principal...Week of 9/26/16

Message from The Principal...

Hello to My Muraski Families,

Within the next few weeks, your child will be taking national standardized tests to gain information about his/her abilities in the classroom. Second and fourth grade students will be taking the Cognitive Abilities Test, or CogAT. Additionally, students in grades two and five will take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, or IOWA. Please click here for view the letter of information from our Curriculum Director.


Retake Day has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 19th at 9:15.

Order forms will be available in the office.

Please make sure that you have emergency contacts listed on the Pass System for your child. If we can not get in contact with you for some reason, we need to have alternate phone numbers for emergencies. Please take the time this weekend to check that you have numbers listed.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs. J. Peters, Principal

Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce that Muraski Elementary will be participating in a year long innovative positive character and culture building program that will inspire Kindness within the school, community and world throughout the year.

Muraski Elementary is forming their first ever Kindness Crew student team that will issue unique, fun and outside the box Kindness Challenges to the entire student body each month. Every Kindness challenge is centered around a life skill, such as integrity, respect, or helpfulness. Each month Muraski Elementary will receive videos, posters, announcements and banners that will promote each Kindness challenge & life skill of the month.

What we need from you:

Before each challenge we will be sending you a letter to notify you of the life skill and the challenge of the month. We ask that you discuss the theme and Kindness challenge with your children. Encourage and support their Kindness ideas. Parents play a crucial role in the success of this initiative.

Together, we hope to create a positive and kinder school culture within Muraski Elementary.

With Kindness,

Denise Candow

Kindness Crew Advisor
