Welcome Back!

“Success Begins at Murdock”

Dear Murdock Families,

As the new principal of Murdock Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great school year! Whether you are a returning family, or new to the district, we welcome you to Murdock! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing summer! We are excited to see the students return for their first day of school on Thursday, August 12th, 2021. 
We have had school construction going on all summer to make necessary school improvements. The look and feel of the school has changed quite a bit over summer. We now have permanent perimeter fencing, updated flooring in two wings, and a new electronic sign at the front of the school. All of this could not be done without the hard work of our maintenance department, the leadership of our superintendent, school board, and the Murdock PTO.
Our teachers are excited and have already put in a lot of work in their classrooms and preparing for the 2021-2022 school year. As you may already know, we have amazing teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. We also have some new teachers and teachers teaching in different grade levels. Once you have updated your students' information in the Aeries Portal, we will open up teacher assignments for you to view.  The Aeries Portal will open up on Aug 2, 2021.
I am honored to serve as the new Principal of Murdock Elementary School. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students work together to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please make plans to attend our Back to School Night scheduled for Wednesday August 25, 2021 at 5:30 PM.
On behalf of the faculty and staff of Murdock Elementary School, I would like to once again welcome your family to a new school year. We look forward to working with you to make this the best year ever. 


Miguel Barriga, Principal
