Announcing the 2017-2018 Reflections Theme…

Within Reach

Reflections (a national PTA program) has encouraged millions of students to express themselves by giving positive recognition for their artistic efforts. Students may create and submit works of art in six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography, and visual arts. All entries begin at the local school level…

  1. Please ask your student to “reflect” and wonder about how to “Within Reach.”
  2. If inspired, encourage your student to create an “original” work of art. (due Oct. 24)
  3. Go to our MMS link for more details and our school's entry form.

MMS Business Sponsorships!

This file is for a business that is interested in sponsoring the Murchison Middle School for the 2017-2018 school year.  
 
We thank you so much for your interest in partnering with our wonderful school for our 50th Anniversary! It is because of local businesses like yours that we are able to extend and support the learning that takes place!   

Matador Fest is coming! Mark your calendar: Friday, March 31, 2017

We are so excited for this year's Matador Fest!  If you'd like more info on how to sponsor or partner with us - check out this link!
 

Secret Pals!

Please support our PTA Secret Pals program!  There are just a few more staff members in need of adoption.  
 

 

Details: About once per month (or more often if you prefer), provide an ANONYMOUS treat to the staff member for whom you have chosen to be a Secret Pal.  Treats do not need to be expensive! I cannot tell you how much to spend, but no gift is too small. It is truly the thought that counts.   

Each staff member has been sent a "Favorites" sheet to fill out which will contain ideas for gifts. I will e-mail you the sheet after receiving your name.  You may bring your gifts to the school office and give to Martha Ladyman or your child can drop the treat off in the front office to be delivered.  There is no storage available to keep things cold or hot.  Thank you for participating!

 

Opportunity for you! PTA Staff Holiday Lunch

Each year, the PTA provides a meal for the staff and faculty to celebrate the end of a wonderful first semester!  Help support these deserving teachers by helping with this celebration!  You can drop off desserts or serve during the meal, Tuesday, December 20th from 10 to 2.
