Final Flag Assembly of the Year

Families please join us for our final flag assembly of the year on Friday, May 12th at 7:50 a.m. in the quad near the flagpole.  We have moved the assembly to Friday due to state testing for our 3rd-5th grade students on Thursday.  Parents of students who are receiving awards should have been contacted by the classroom teacher.  

Family Math Night

Please join us, Thursday May 11th from 5:00-6:00 in the Hancock Auditorium for Family Math Night.  There will be math games for all ages and will be a fun time for the entire family.  Download Flyer

State Testing in May

Starting May 8th through the last week of May, students in grades 3-5 will be working on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). During this testing period, we ask that families plan to have their students in school on time and stay the entire school day. Missing portions of the test will require students to make up the testing on an alternate day with a group outside of their classroom. We know from experience that students do best when they test with their class in their own classroom rather than with another staff member.  If you have any questions regarding CAASPP, please contact your child’s teacher. 

STEP - “Inflation Response” Warehouse Distribution 

We invite you to join us at our upcoming distribution which will be held in the Tierrasanta area. The distribution will be held on Saturday, May 13th, 2023 - STEP will be distributing: Food, DIapers, and more. . Registration Required. Open to all military, veterans, reservists, national guard, and their families.  Once registered, families will receive an email and/or a phone call the week of the distribution, which will provide additional information to include their confirmed registration, location, and scheduled time for arrival. link to register Here.


Fourth and fifth-grade students may ride bikes or scooters to school as long as their application form is approved by the principal and is on file in the office at all times.  Students may not ride skateboards or rollerblades to school.  When riding a bike or scooter, students must wear a helmet at all times and abide by all biking rules as stipulated in their application. Failure to follow these directions may result in loss of bike and scooter privileges. Students of any age are not allowed to ride their bike or scooter while on campus due to risk of injuring themselves or others around them.

Snakes In Neighborhood 

As a reminder Murphy Canyon is literally a canyon with lots of critters who are native to the land we are sitting on.  This includes many different types of snakes to include rattlesnakes.  Students have been seen climbing and playing on the slopes on the way home from school.  Please remind your students that they should not play there and could potentially be putting themselves at risk.
