Principal's Corner

Summer Letter 2017

Dear Murphy parents and students,

I have spent a great deal of time this summer acclimating myself to the wonderful and supportive culture at Mary T Murphy School. I am very excited as I prepare for the upcoming school year. Beginning a new chapter in my career as an educator in Branford will be a challenge. I have spent the summer meeting with my colleagues and the teachers at Murphy to learn as much as I can about this wonderful school community  Having met with many teachers from Murphy this summer I have developed a tremendous appreciation for their dedication to your children.  Their optimism, energy and genuine enthusiasm for teaching young children is evident in every conversation. They love the Murphy community of students, parents and staff.  

I look forward to so much as the new principal at Murphy. Our students are each unique individuals with tremendous enthusiasm for learning, playing and making friends. For me it will be such a thrill watching them grow and evolve as they explore their interests and expand their curiosity. It is my intent to support our staff in all ways possible to help them best meet the diverse needs of our students. I enjoyed visiting the Blackstone library for the meet and greet in May. This was an opportunity for me to meet members of the Murphy community.I feel so fortunate to have an opportunity to work with elementary students as they develop during these early years of their formal education. With the expertise and dedication of our Murphy professional staff I hope to facilitate your child’s  social, physical, emotional, and intellectual development.

Warm regards,

Robin B. Goeler, Principal
