Principal's Message

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.  


Marcie Griffith

Principal, Murdy Elementary
