Good morning, Murphy Families-

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weekend.  It seems that spring has finally come! Last week was a great one at school and we are looking forward to some busy and productive days in the coming week.

Please see below for some important messages for this week.

MCAS

Math - May 17 and May 19

Science - May 24 and 25 (*Grade 5 ONLY)

Summer Camp Information

Parent Council - 5/16 at 6:30

We hope to see you at tomorrow evening's Parent Council Meeting.  The meeting is scheduled for 5/16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Murphy gym.  I have attached an updated agenda to this email - the meeting will include a vote on PC officers and the budget for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Field Day

Field Day is June 7!  Our committee is looking for volunteers to help us with various jobs on this very fun day at Murphy.  Please visit the sign up link below if you are interested in helping.  All volunteers need a current CORI check.  Thank you!

Title I Needs Assessment Survey

Dear families, every year all schools that receive Title I funds are asked to provide feedback about the current services your school is receiving. If you could take a moment to share your thoughts it would be much appreciated. 

FY22 Title I Family Needs Assessment

5th Grade Promotion Ceremony - Save the Date

We are excited to return to an in-person promotion ceremony (with families).  We will commemorate our 5th graders heading off to Middle School on Friday June 24 at 1:30.  We hope to see 5th grade families at this event.

Student Absences

Please help to support our school attendance initiative. As always, we hope to ensure our students are in school and on time unless they are truly not feeling well. If we can provide support in this area, please let us know. If your child is going to be absent, please remember that all absence messages must go through the front office by calling (781) 331-2862 rather than other modes such as Class Dojo.

Please send your child's physical exam to the health office when completed.  Physicals must be dated on or after 9/1/21.   Having their physical on file with the health office prior to starting 4th grade is a state requirement.  Please let me know if your child has their physical appointments over the summer so  I can make a note of that. Thank you.

If you signed up for the at-home testing program you will continue to receive your test kits every other Friday. If you would like to still sign up please follow the link here. Also please be sure to read the letter from Superintendent Wargo where he lays out the criteria for the program.  

ST Math

ST math is an online program that supports our students with further developing their math skills. You may have heard them mention Gigi, the penguin, from time to time. Our students use this program in school but are also encouraged to use it at home to help them meet their recommended weekly minutes for optimal learning.  

For Kindergarten and1st-grade students, it is recommended that they spend 60 minutes each week. For 2nd-5th grade students, their recommended time is 90 minutes each week. If you have questions or need support, please let us know.

WPS Opportunities Resources 

Please see the linked document for a wide range of family and community resources.

Have a great week.

Principal
