It has been seven years since our last survey and it's time once again to do a little soul-searching. The PTA needs your input as we re-evaluate our programs, our fundraising efforts, and what our future priorities should look like.
Click here to take this short survey, which should take about 10 minutes. We ask that you please complete this survey by April 2nd — we need your feedback!
Thank you in advance for your input. All submissions are strictly confidential.

On Monday, March 9th the Murray PTA hosted Drs. Alan Dienstag and Katie Sawyer of the Larchmont Mamaroneck Counseling Center for a fantastic morning and evening discussion group on our values, our children and us. The discussion was a thoughtful and insightful look into our own values as parents.
In case you missed it, please click below for the handouts that were given. Stay tuned for more LMCCC discussion groups to come!
We're really pleased to announce a new program to informally welcome new Murray families who have just moved to Larchmont. And we need YOUR help to make it a success!
Our new families may be American, or have international backgrounds. They may have moved before the school year starts or mid-way through it. Their kids may be joining any of the grades at Murray Ave. But what they do have in common is that Larchmont, and Murray Avenue School in particular, are very unfamiliar to them right now.
So we're looking for friendly volunteer 'Buddy Families' to make contact with the newcomer family (we'll broker the initial intros!), and to invite them to an at-home meet-up (a Saturday afternoon BBQ, Sunday morning pancakes etc) and/or a family playdate at one of the local playgrounds. Plus the offer to be at the end of the phone/on email for any queries about the school or local area they may have in their first month of settling in.
Murray is such a friendly school community - let's try and make it even more welcoming for those new to it! For more information and to volunteer, please contact Nicki Haines and Sarah Lieberman at email@example.com
