Beginning of the Year

Here's how to get started for a great school year! If you have any questions, please contact us.

1. Update your membership toolkit account        

Every year you must update your family information on your account. These accounts are how the PTA pulls information to be able to distribute purchases like shirts and supply packs to your student. This is also where you need to update your PTA directory and PTA publishing access. Giving permission for publishing allows your child to be in publications like the yearbook, our PTA Facebook page, and student directory.

2. Join or renew your PTA membership 

Every year you must join the PTA. Purchase your 2018-2019 parent, student, or faculty membership. The #1 reason to join PTA is your child benefits. Many of research studies show that when parents get involved, children do better in school. Murphy Middle School PTA will help you stay connected throughout the school year. Volunteering is not a requirement of membership, although we would love to have your help. Learn more

3. Renew your PISD background check 

Want to volunteer on campus? PISD requires that every volunteer renews their background check each school year. If you've volunteered before, it's a 2 minute or less process. If you're new to volunteering, it's 5 minutes or less. After this is done, check out our volunteer opportunities and sign up!

4. Update your PISD parent portal

Update your student’s emergency cards that are kept on file at the school to find out who your student’s teacher is for the year. To do this, sign in to the PISD parent portal.

5. Connect with the PTA calendar and social media

The calendar page is where you will find event dates, times and locations throughout the year. Don't forget to subscribe to eNews and follow us on social media
