Information on New Math Curriculum at McMurray
As we prepare to roll out a new math curriculum for the 2014-2015 school year in grades K-6, we want to provide parents with details about the new program and share resources that are available. We have created a website that shares a video created by our teachers that details the new enVisions math program and how it is used in the classroom.

Looking ahead to the 2014-2015 school year, McMurray students and staff follow a new improved schedule that increases our daily time allotted to the vital core subjects –English/Language Arts, math, social studies and science – and maintains time for our valued arts programs.
