Tomahawk Nation!

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for coming out to our Spring Showcase Friday evening! We loved watching your kids perform!

One more week until Spring Week! Reminder that our school will be closed the week of April 15th. We look forward to seeing you back Monday, April 22nd!

Great News….we are thrilled to let you know that the Sherrif’s Department has been able to secure an officer for our morning car rider line! We look forward to welcoming him on Monday morning and I know that you do too! With an officer being in place, we will resume our regular schedule and the front doors will close at 7:30 a.m.

Friday is our Picnic for Parents! This event will be held rain or shine but are sure hoping for some sunshine. Check the calendar for your specific lunchtime. Make sure that you bring your ticket as that will be your admission to this event.

If I don’t have a chance to see you this week, I would like to wish all of you a safe and happy Spring Break! Thanks for an awesome year so far….we are looking forward to finishing the last six week

Hope everyone has a great rest of your weekend. Looking forward to seeing you this week!

Love. Learn. Lead.

emBrace Each Other-Murdock Orthodontics

Bullying is a nationwide epidemic that over 3.2 million students report being victims of each year. This means that almost every kid in school knows someone who has been bullied or is even the bully themselves. Unfortunately this week we have seen the potentially dangerous effects of bullying in the Charleston area with the death of a young lady at an elementary school.

The Murdock Orthodontics Team wants to help everyone see why it’s important to “emBrace Each Other”. “emBrace Each Other” is our anti-bullying initiative aimed to build a network of young ambassadors that spread positivity and educate their peers on the importance of embracing others.

This Spring, we will award FREE orthodontic treatment to 3 chosen applicants who share their story of overcoming a bullying-related struggle and have made a positive impact for themselves or others. These students will receive treatment free of charge from Murdock Orthodontics and become a part of our team of young do-gooders in the community that help their peers learn more about why it’s important for people to “emBrace Each Other”.

This first “emBrace Each Other” initiative will be for students in the Lancaster and Union county areas who submit the best essay. The first 200 participants will also receive a Murdock Orthodontic’s “emBrace Each Other” tee shirt!! The contest will run from April 1st through April 19th.
