MMS PTA would like to welcome our New Principal to Murphy...
Please join us in welcoming Matt Conrad to the Murphy community as the new principal of Murphy Middle School. Mr. Conrad's prior experiences which helped prepare him for this role include teaching social studies and PACE at Haggard Middle School and in Lake Highlands, and serving in Plano ISD in a variety of administrative positions, including administrative intern at Haggard Middle School, assistant principal at Shepton High School and the middle school gifted/talented program headmaster at Robinson Middle School. To the position of campus principal, Mr. Conrad brings a servant leadership style grounded in open communication, innovation and a true commitment to the development of the whole child. He will officially begin in his new role on July 18.
Summer TO-DO List
Anytime - If you are new to MMS, please create an account here on our website. You may already have a Membership Toolkit (MTK) account from your prior school and can use the same username and password, but you will need to login to the MMS site in order to get the process started for your incoming student. Once there, you will need to add your student and place them in the grade that they just completed. The system will automatically roll them and all other students up to the appropriate grade level before school starts.

July 15th - PE Clothes can be ordered after 7/15 by going to http://www.murphymavsshop.com. These will be delivered to school after school starts.

- Membership Toolkit will reopen to update family information, order PTA Memberships, School supplies (limited quantities), Spirit Wear, etc.
