Enrollment for the 2021-22 school year continues. Please click HERE for all the details about enrollment.
Thank you to the 247 students who have already re-enrolled (as of 5/5). This is just over 40% towards our projection of 614 students. The district has set a benchmark for each school to reach 90% enrollment by June 4.
With just under a month & over 300 enrollments away from this benchmark, we are excited to announce a fun enrollment challenge to encourage re-enrollments.
The class with the highest percentage of students re-enrolled by COB on June 4th will receive a pizza party OR an ice cream party during the last two weeks of school. Once the winning class is announced, students in the winning class will vote on the prize they’d most like to receive. The party will be held outside during the last two weeks of school, and any virtual students who are members of the winning class will be invited to join their class outside during this time. As an added incentive, any class reaching 90% enrollment (regardless of number of classes) will receive an honorable mention and will receive popsicles to be enjoyed outside on a date/time of their choice during the last two weeks of school.
Each Friday, starting on May 7th, we’ll post an updated list with the top 5 classes on the main playground at arrival and dismissal, so students can see how their class is doing week to week. The winning class will be announced by COB on Monday, June 7th.
Remember, withdrawals count towards your class count, so please email MurchESEnroll@k12.dc.gov and request a withdrawal form if you do not intend to return to Murch next school year.
If you haven’t already done so, please enroll as soon as you are able. This will help your child’s class win a fun pizza or ice cream party. As an additional benefit, the earlier you enroll, the more accurate our classroom planning and budget allocation can be. These factors have a direct impact on the learning environment at Murch.
If you have any questions around enrollment, please reach out to the Murch Enrollment Team at MurchESEnroll@k12.dc.gov. We look forward to welcoming your Mustangs back for the 2021-22 SY!
