Hello, I am Mrs. Sara Murphy. I am a mother of 3, Army wife, teacher, and Grad student. I am a graduate of Marian College, with a degree in Elementary Education. I will be graduating in May 2017 with a Master's degree in Reading. My goal for this year is to get acquainted with your student and provide an intellectually challenging and successful classroom for each student.

We have a few snow day changes to notify.  May 10th will be a full day of school.  If any more snow days will accumulate, I believe it would be tacked on to the end of the school year.    

Please check with your parish your child will be making his/her First Communion for all the times and expectations.  Retreats and mass times and dates are listed below.  I believe the banners are optional.

Overall, I am excited to see what these kiddo’s can do!!

 Thank you!

Mrs. Murphy

Websites this website is great for finding interest books.  Your child can mark interests, reading level, and book types and the website will find only books in your child’s interest level.  It also has listen to read in picture, non-fiction, and chapter books.  I use it to break up Daily 5.  They seem to really enjoy it. Plus, it expands your reading library!!

Moby max will help with math fluency and more…

Spelling City contains a list of all our spelling words, which will be uploaded Monday of each week.  It contains not only the list, but games your child can play to get to know them better.

Here is a website I created with key vocabulary, ideas, tools, and tricks.


Please do not feel as if you have to purchase anything!  These are things that I am interested in getting for the class.

Product Details Classroom Stools:  I am looking for at least 2 to use at a taller table or by window.  I have many that struggle sitting, so sometimes a different level of sitting is needed.  These will allow for a little flexibility and assist in focusing students.  Preferred height is 15 – 24 inches.  These are just some examples or ideas. 




Science items: Paper towel rolls, rubber bands, straws,

digital timer easy for kids to use and monitor.
