Good evening, this is Sean Martinson, principal at Murphy Elementary School. I am sending this message with a reminder about tomorrow night’s open house at Murphy Elementary School from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. That’s Thursday, September 1st from 3-5:00pm. Some of our classes, including all of our Kindergartens, are holding individual conferences throughout the day. Unless you have received a specific invite, we’ll see you during the 3-5 time range.
Along with a reminder of the date and time, as your child’s first teacher, I would like to ask a favor of you. When your child and family come into the school for the Open House, we ask that you use this as a time for your child to show you how to demonstrate the school rules. For example, when you come in, it would be a great time to ask your child what are the school rules in the hallways, the classroom, the playground, the library, etc. It’s also a great time for you to ask your child to demonstrate what the school rules look like. For example, you may want to ask your child what does it look like when you walk in the hallway during the day, what does it sound like when you walk in the hall during the day?
When you arrive you will also notice some construction still in progress as we install two “portable” classrooms on the east side of our building and on the playground. While we expect to be ready for the kids next week, we do need everyone to stay off of and away from the playground until then. Thank you for your help as you come inside for the open house.
So again, we hope to see you tomorrow night, Thursday, September 1st from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. Although you may be tempted to come early, I remind you that the start time is 3:00. Many of our staff will be in and out of other meetings throughout the day.
Have a great evening!
