Movin’ Up to Murphy

It’s middle school, and it’s a whole new world!   Feeling anxious about the transition from elementary school to middle school? It’s usually harder on us, the parents than it is on our students! In order to ease you into this transition, you are invited to meet other parents going through this transition and learn more about Murphy Middle School.

 The MMS PTA invites you to join us:
Monday, May 23 @ 9:00 am
Murphy Middle School Distance Learning Room (DLR)


Monday, May 23
6:30 pm following the PTA meeting
(please join us at 6 pm for the PTA meeting if you are able)
Murphy Middle School Cafeteria

We’ll try to answer some of your questions about:
How does schedule pick up (‘Maverick March’) work?
What’s a typical middle school day like?
Lunches…and the cafeteria
What supplies does your student need?
What’s it like to volunteer in middle school…and MORE!

Meet the MMS Principal, Dr. Brant Perry and get the “inside scoop” from experienced Murphy parents who have been through this transition. This program is not designed to address academics, but to answer questions and concerns you might have about this transition for you and your child.




Log in (or create an account above).  If you have a new student starting MMS next year, you will need to add that student under Family Information.  Please put in their CURRENT grade, as school supplies shown will be for the next grade level.


8th Grade Celebration
It's time to celebrate our awesome 8th grade class as they prepare to move on to High School! From 12-3pm on Thursday, May 26th, our 8th graders will get to head over to Murphy PSA for food, fun & to celebrate their time here at Murphy.  
We would love to have a lot of volunteers come help the celebration be a fun & safe place for the students.  If you are able to volunteer please sign up at http://mmspta.org/.  All volunteers must have a cleared PISD background check for the current school year (2015-16).  This can be done at:  http://www.pisd.edu/about.us/partners.volunteers/volunteer.application.shtml.  In addition all volunteers must have checked their ID in at Murphy Middle School front office sometime this year.  
All cleared volunteers who have signed up online to volunteer for the 8th grade celebration, have an approved PISD background check, AND have scanned their ID in at MMS sometime this year will be able to go straight to Murphy PSA at their scheduled shift time on  May 26th.  Everyone else will have to check in at Murphy Middle School first then can proceed to Murphy PSA.  So save yourself a trip, volunteer for the 8th grade celebration & come straight to Murphy PSA. 
Hope to see you there.  Sign up soon...spots are filling up.
