School starts on September 6th...to get ready for the 2016-17 school year, please read this important information from your Murray Avenue PTA. Enjoy these last few days of summer and we’ll see you soon!
School Supplies Are Ready for Pickup
If you ordered school supplies last Spring, they are available for pick up until September 10th at Imperial Milk Mart, 14 Chatsworth Avenue. Hours are 8am-7pm Monday-Saturday and 9am-4pm on Sunday. PLEASE NOTE: teachers have requested that students attend the first day of school with the supplies but WITHOUT boxes. If you didn’t preorder school supplies, Futterman’s will have grade specific lists and all of the supplies needed. Supply lists are also posted on the School Supplies page. Questions? Contact Kristin DeFelice: email@example.com
Who is My Child's Teacher?
On August 29th, parents will be notified via an email from “One Call Now”, that class placement information is available on the Mamaroneck Schools District Website’s Parent Portal: https://parentportal.eschooldata.com/Login Please review and confirm your credentials in advance of the last week of August to ensure that you can access this PARENT PORTAL. For help, click on the FAQ button on the parent portal login page or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Class Lists and Directory
The A to Z Directory is a website and app that is loaded by PTA volunteers and is done after parent portal information is available. It provides parents with class lists and contact information for parents and students at our school. This is the only way to view class lists, until the printed directory (due out in October) will be sold as a fifth grade fundraiser. New families/Kindergarten Families will receive login credentials for the A to Z directory via email in the next few weeks. Questions? Contact Lauren Belisle: email@example.com
Kindergarten Meet and Greet
Please join Kindergarten Families on September 1 at 10am on the Murray Avenue Kindergarten playground. This will be an informal meet and greet for the caregivers and kids, so we can have more familiar faces on the first day of school. We look forward to seeing many of you there. Please note there will be no access to the school during this playground date on September 1, not even for a bathroom break, as the school is being prepared for the new year.

Murray 101- An orientation sponsored by Jennifer Monaco, Principal of Murray Avenue School, and the Murray Avenue School PTA to introduce families to Murray. Tours of the school will be provided at this time. We invite all families, but strongly encourage families with oldest children in grades K-2 to attend this meeting. We would like to provide assistance in acclimating to the Murray Community by providing a roadmap for a successful home school connection.
Grade specific arrival/dismissal information will be mailed to parents in August from Jennifer Monaco, Murray Principal.
All parents should be aware from the first day of school, that traffic congestion around school at arrival and dismissal times is heavy. To reduce the chaos and any potential danger to our kids, the PTA and the school administration have implemented some programs and guidelines for school drop-off and pick-up.
To keep all students safe at drop-off and pick-up, YOU and YOUR CAREGIVERS and ANYONE PICKING UP OR DROPPING OFF YOUR CHILD must read and familiarize themselves with the guidelines printed on this site, which is found in “Traffic” under the “PTA Programs” tab.
***Please also note that most Kindergarteners are not ready for our Daymon Terrace drop-off program until later in the year. Students using this service must be able to get themselves unbuckled, out of their cars and gather their own belongings independently and in a timely manner.***Please also note that there is NO SUPERVISION on any of the playgrounds before 8:20 am. Please do not drop off your child for unsupervised play before that time.
Please go to the Traffic page for drop-off/pick-up information at Daymon Terrace and Murray Ave.
Enjoy the remaining days of summer and hope to see you at Murray on September 6th for the first day of school!
Melanie Kraut and Wendy Tannenbaum, PTA Co-Presidents
