Students in Mr. Persino’s 7th grade science class have been walking, running, jumping and building these first days of school in an effort to understand the concepts of velocity, acceleration. Utilizing iPad technology combined with movement, flash gates and mini roller-coaster track, students are developing a better understanding of the variables that impact acceleration, velocity and energy.

On Monday, June 1st, Marie Murphy 6th grader Emilia McDougal took part in New Trier High School’s Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Winnetka Campus Facilities Project. Emilia was part of a group of 6th grade students from around the township who participated in the ceremony, as they will be part of the first class of students who will attend all four years of high school following the completion of the new New Trier.
Emilia was chosen by her teachers, principal, and superintendent in recognition of her hard work, involvement in a plethora of extra curricular activities, and overall wonderful disposition! Thank you, Emilia, for representing us well!
On Tuesday, May 26th all students participated in the Marie Murphy Olympics. Thank goodness the rain held out until the event was over! Ten teams comprised of 6th, 7th and 8th graders competed against one another. Team #5 came in 1st place under the leadership of Mrs. Lane, Mr. Minsley and Ms. Stewart. Team #1 took 2nd place under the direction of Mrs. Cunningham, Mrs. Hoffmeister and Mr. Howe. Third place was clinched by Team #2 with guidance from Mrs. Roche, Mrs. Rose-Epstein and Mr. Furman.
