Update from the Principal:

  • Dear Parents and Guardians:

I just wanted to update you on a few new happenings here at Murray School. In order to better serve the students at the school we have made a couple of changes to the school calendar for next month. On January 10th and January 20th, we have changed both days to professional development days for our staff. Students will not have classes, so the teachers can go over the data from the Iowa Assessments that were given last Spring. This is a necessary process so we can determine where our strengths are and what opportunities have opened, and to determine where any gaps may be in the education process. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and this decision was not made lightly it was with the best interest of the students in mind. I look forward to seeing you at the elementary concert on Monday, December 16th at 6:30pm. The Scholastic Book Fair opens today at 3:30 and runs until 4:30, and will also be open next week, before and after the elementary winter concert. Also, just a reminder that school will dismiss at 2 pm on December 20th, for the holiday break, please plan accordingly. As always if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me here at the school.

Jarrett Belden,
