(The following message will go out as an Instant Alert phone call and email to all Murphy Families ~ Tuesday, December 17th 6:30pm)
Hello my name is Kathy Miller, second-grade teacher at Murphy Elementary School. I’m writing tonight with another Murphy Mustang Motivator. Each Murphy Mustang Motivator is a call from one of the Murphy Elementary School staff members with something that we find important enough to share with you at home. Tonight I wanted to share with you a novel idea. Turn off the video games and the TV. Get out a deck of cards. Sit down as a family and play one of the Games to Build Fact Knowledge that you will find in your child’s Tuesday folder (a deck of cards will also be sent home with each student in grades K-2, we will send home decks for 3rd-4th grade once we have more). What better way to spend an evening – playing games together and doing math at the same time! Thank you again for taking the time to read this message. We hope you have a great night and wish you the best for your child now in the future.
