Murphy School Academic Learning Night
Each year, the Murphy School hosts an Academic Learning Night. During the 2015-2016 school year, our theme for the night was #MurphyMindset. On Thursday May 12, 2016 from 4-6 pm the Murphy celebrated our student achievement through our annual academic learning night. This year's focus was all about growth mindset- we are calling it Murphy Mindset. The night featured student work, activities for students and families around mindset, raffles, and much more.... ALL Murphy families were welcome. If you are on twitter, tweet out our new hashtag #Murphymindset. Murphy students and their families converged on the cafeteria to explore different cross content activities at each grade level. Teachers created activities to foster collaboration between students and families. This learning night focused families on our Instructional Focus.Murphy Instructional Focus: Teachers with the support of Murphy School leaders will create and engage students regularly in challenging academic tasksthat require deep understanding of content and extended thinking and over time will encourage perseverance. By modeling growth mindset, teachers and leaders will be demonstrating the very practices they hope to foster in their students.We will announce the date and theme for the 2016-2017 Academic Learning Night later in the fall/winter.
