Mrs. Murphy’s Weekly Updates: Here
Everyone can eat in the dining hall but you can only have a maximum of 8 people per table. If you are uncomfortable eating in the dining hall there are a couple classrooms available on the first floor. Also, please only take two pieces of dessert (e.g. two cookies) so that there is enough for everyone.
(1) When taking tests in the library Mr. Walz will give you a table marker so that others know you are testing and not disturb you, (2) a reminder that Wednesday is a "no homework, tests, quizzes, projects" day because of Lunar New Year.

Look out for my email after morning meeting to order!! The organization we chose is the Sylvia Rivera law project is a legal aid organization based in NYC that works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence. They mainly assist low-income or people of color who are transgender, intersex and/or gender nonconforming.
