Dear Families and Scholars,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am proud to be the principal of John Murdy Elementary. This year, we welcome our new assistant principal, Mr. Thao To. Mr. To is a great addition to our Murdy team!
2022-23 marks the 6th year of our Vietnamese Dual Immersion Program, which now includes students in TK - 4th grade. This also marks the 7th year of our Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program.
Murdy has earned a reputation for academic excellence through the hard work of our students, teachers, parents, and staff. I look forward to continuing our partnership as we work together to ensure that every child becomes a life-long learner and reaches their academic potential through enriching curriculum, engaging hands-on activities, and inspiring teachers and staff.
It is an honor and a privilege to be part of the Murdy Elementary School Community. I look forward to working with you to continue our tradition of excellence.
If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Principal, Murdy Elementary
The teachers and staff at John Murdy Elementary are hardworking and dedicated to providing our students with high quality learning experiences and preparing them for future success. We are proud to offer an on-site GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Program and our district’s first Vietnamese Dual Language Program.
We have a strong commitment to STE(A)M, and recognize the importance of getting technology into the hands of our students. All our students participate in Hour of CODE and many elect to participate in robotics. The last three years, we partnered with a local high school to bring an art teacher to Murdy to provide lessons after school.
