Murray Middle School

Week of April 9 activities:

1. China Lake Back Gate, (Richmond Gate) will be closed beginning April 9 for 6 months for repairs. The Vieweg Gate, off of Chelsea Street behind K-Mart will be open. This will increase traffic at the crosswalk between Drummond and Chelsea. Please remind your students to ride or walk on the south side (with traffic) to school and cross at French and Drummond. This is the light at the Burroughs intersection. Going home they should ride or walk on the north side, with traffic and be careful crossing at Chelsea.

2. PTO Tile project is going very well. We have many talented artists, adults and students.  We still have about 50% of the students who have not made their tile. PTO will continue to have the project at the PTO store this week during lunches.

3. Tuesday, the BHS Athletic Director, Michelle Lazaro, will be at Murray during lunches to talk to the 8th graders about the BHS sports program.

4. Wednesday is Late Start and it is our Corner Stone Ceremony, sponsored by the Masons.

5. Thursday, students who sold popcorn will “Spin the Wheel” of massive prizes, during their lunch period. This is always fun to watch as the students hope for the big prize.
