    Happy Friday, 

     

    We have almost made it through our first full week of 2018 and we are finally getting back into to the swing of things. 

    Tomorrow our Mustangs will be competing at the PfISD UIL Competition at PHS.  Good Luck to all of our students that have been working so hard to prepare for this event. 

    Wednesday, January 31st is early release for Elementary and Middle school.  Our dismissal procedures will begin at 11:53am. 

    Just a reminder that 5th grade parents are invited to KLMS on Monday evening at 6:00 for an informational meeting on electives, choice sheets and the transition to middle school. 

    PfISD will showcase the talents of many elementary students at the Fine Arts Showcase on Tuesday, January 30th at the PHS FAC beginning at 5:30 PM. 

    Please mark your calendars that Monday, February 19th will now be a school day for all Mustangs as a make-up day for the weather day we had last week. 

     

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Happy New Year!  We are looking forward to a fantastic spring semester. 

     

    A reminder that next Monday, January 15th, will be a holiday in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday.

     

    Note from Mrs. Sanchez about a chance to help out - 

    Parents, our school has accepted the challenge of helping find a cure for blood related cancers.  We are joining over 27,000 schools across the nation to make a difference and raise as much money as we can.  Over the next 3 weeks (Jan. 16-Feb. 2) our school will be working to reach a goal of $3000!  A letter and collection box will be coming home with your child that explains the Pennies for Patients program and has instructions for setting up your own online giving page.  Your child may also use their box to bring coins, bills or checks to school in that 3 week period.  If you send in checks, please make sure they are made out to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, not MES.  Thank you for helping us reach our goal in becoming one step closer to finding the cures for blood related cancers.  Every penny counts!

     

    Attendance Counts!

    We could use assistance with an important issue. Our attendance rate has declined and it is causing two problems:  First, some of our students are in class less often and missing out on instruction.  Secondly, our district (PfISD, not Murchison) is funded largely based on our daily attendance.  When students are absent, the district’s funding decreases and fewer dollars are available for educational programs.

     

    The way you can help is this:  Please make sure your child is in school as frequently as possible (unless, of course, they have fever or a stomach virus).  Additionally, it truly helps if students’ dentist/doctor appointments are scheduled later in the day.  PfISD’s official attendance is taken each day between 9:00 a.m. and 10:a.m.  Scheduling appointments later in the day and vacations or family trips during district holidays would make a significantly positive impact for Pflugerville.

     

    Please check out our PTO Newsletter attached to keep in touch with important events and dates upcoming at MES! 

     

    Respectfully,

    Dear MES parents, 

     

         Our school would like to help the many victims of Hurricane Harvey, specifically Rockport Elementary School, by holding dress up days next week and charging $1 a day for any students that want to participate.  You are welcome to send $1 each day your child chooses to dress up, or send $5 on Monday for the whole week.  Any other donations will happily be accepted.  

     

         With the money raised, we will be buying gift cards for an elementary school on the coast to help get them back on their feet.  The generous donations from around the country are overwhelming some of the hardest hit areas, so we thought a monetary donation would be the most helpful at this time.  All proceeds will go directly to a school in need. 

     

    Dress up days for the week of September 11-15.

     

    Monday – wear sunglasses

    Tuesday – wear mismatched clothes 

    Wednesday – wear hat/headwear day (hats, scarves, headbands, etc)

    Thursday – crazy hair day

    Friday – crazy sock day

         

     

    Murchison has such a caring community and is capable of helping out in a big way.  Thanks for considering donating to this worthy cause!  

     

    Sincerely, 

    The Staff of Murchison Elementary
