Forgot to turn in your class fees? It's not too late!
It's not too late to get your Marie Murphy classroom fees in! We are still collecting through the end of May. Money can be turned in at the front desk at Marie Murphy. These fees cover the teacher/staff end of year gifts. Please note that 6th/7th grade fees are $25.00 and 8th grade fees are $15.00.
May 9th is National Bike to School Day!
This year we are coordinating it with our inaugural Bike Safety Day. Dairy Queen ice cream coupons for all riders available in the morning!!
There will be a Bike Rodeo for second graders, and presentations for 4th and 6th graders. We ask that all 2nd graders bring their bikes around to the south side of the building in the designated area near the gym.
Parents, we need your help! Please help organize a group in your neighborhood. We will need parent leaders to take kids to AW and to bring the kids home from school. MM kids will not need parents to escort, but will still need to be reminded of bike safety. Plan a safe route, remind everyone to walk their bikes across busy roads, stay together as a group, and be sure that everyone has on a bike helmet (including adults)! Even if you can’t ride with the kids, help cheer them on! Be a part of a national initiative!! For more information, email Rachel Goodman at email@example.com
