Cultural Spotlight and Mapping Project
Happy Friday everyone! It was a pleasure to meet all of our new parents at our annual New Parent Breakfast this morning. There are so many opportunities to get involved at Murch, either through the school or through the HSA. Please check the school website (murchschool.org) regularly, along with your child’s class website, to get updated information.
We invite you to visit our main foyer and see our Cultural Spotlight program (featuring a different culture represented at Murch every several weeks) and our Cultural Mapping Project (where students can identify their place of birth and/or their cultural heritage). Both projects are great visual reminders of how culturally diverse our school community is. If you’d like to participate in the Cultural Spotlight program by setting up a display, please contact Lauren Reed (world geography teacher).
Check out the Fall After-School Activities Roster which is also going home in Friday Folders today. Registration forms are on our website. Sign up early for activities, as spots do fill up. Thanks to the PWP (Proving What’s Possible) grant given to us by the district as well as HSA funding, we’ll be expanding our offerings this year. If you have ideas, please contact Mary Eckstein (project manager).
As a reminder, please check your child’s backpack every Friday for Friday Folder information. There are a few items in the folder that you need to read, sign and return. Have a great weekend!
