At Heights- Murray Elementary, we teach our students to be SAFE, RESPONSIBLE, and RESPECTFUL.  We call that being HEIGHTS PROUD.

This year we’re recognizing our students effort in the classroom, and they’ll be  

PAWsitively Reaching New HEIGHTS

With the help of our parents at home, teachers at school, and community partners that support our students with supplies and special programs,  we want our stakeholders to know that HEIGHTS IS WHERE OUR HEART IS.

Show your support by purchasing a t-shirt that will help us provide special opportunities for students.  Students, families, and community supporters can order the shirt in 2 colors and 2 sleeve lengths.  This is an easy way to pick up some new school clothes, and be HEIGHTS PROUD.
