Halloween 2014

Letter from Principal

November/ December 2014


Dear Musick Families,


Our theme this year is Leopard Pride. We have many reasons to be proud at Musick Elementary:

  • We participated in the Newark Days Parade on September 20 and received a trophy for the Community Spirit Award!
  • We hosted our first ever College and Career Night to over 100 families on October 15… Parents learned about financial aid opportunities and students heard from special guests in different careers.
  • We participated in the Fire Up Your Feet activity log competition for the month of October. We had a fantastic Walk and Ride to School Day on October 8 and won $200 in prize money to date!
  • Students are working hard every day in class. Teachers are implementing Common Core standards in reading, writing, and math; they are emphasizing rigor, deep level thinking, and problem solving each and every day!

What have you done today to make you proud?


As always, I look forward to seeing you around the campus and at our special events. Do not hesitate to call or visit.



Ms. Ingham-Watters

Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Requests for the 2015-2016 School Year


If you would like to have your child attend a different elementary school for the 2015-2016 school year, you will need to complete an Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Request form. These forms can be picked up at the office of the school your child is currently attending, the district website, or at the front desk of the District Office. Space is always limited so it is extremely important to fill out and turn in the form as quickly as possible. All Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Requests should be turned in to the District Office between January 5, and January 30, 2015. Students who have been overflowed to a different school will need to complete an Open Enrollment (Intra-District Transfer) Request form if they wish to remain at their current school. If you have any questions, the school office should be able to help you. Thank you.
