Murray Elementary School held their annual Tiger Tales assembly. Murray Elementary School students pictured (front row from left) were recognized for their winning designs for the Tiger Tales publication. Yuki Tomonaga/Age 8/ front cover, Winner Brennon Cyzeweski/ Age 8/inside back cover, Dorothy Weinburger/Age 8/ inside front cover, and Grady Farr/Age 8/ back cover winner.
Students submit poems, prose, and photos for the anthology each year. Originally implemented as Scribbles, the bound book showcases work by students from kindergarten through third grade. The Murray Independent School Foundation For Excellence provides funding assistance each year to this project that features writing and art work from Murray High School alumni from over an almost 25 year history. Additionally, the Murray Elementary School PTO also provides funding for this annual project.
Pittman said Tiger Tales is a time honored tradition that promotes and encourages Murray Elementary School’s youngest authors and artists. “We are privileged to be their first publishers and know we will not be their last.”
