A Message From the Principals

Good Morning Muraski Families,

We just want to take a moment and say a big THANK YOU to our amazing PTA for the fantastic Teacher Appreciation Week! From the homemade super hero costumes, candy bar and flowers, to the fabulous lunches, you certainly outdid yourselves. The staff here at Muraski are so thankful for the continued support we receive from our PTA. Thank you!

We hope all the moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day as well. The weather was certainly beautiful so hopefully you found some time to enjoy the oudoors. This week should be another nice week of weather so we're forward to that.
