Congratulations to the MMS Environmental Club! It recently won the Outstanding Existing Environmental Awareness Group from the City of Plano’s Environmental Star of Excellence ceremony on September 19th. The club assisted Camden Henson in creating a butterfly garden in front of the cafeteria and registered it as a Monarch Waystation. A dedication ceremony was held to honor Lori Crawford, a MMS math teacher, who lost her battle with breast cancer. 


Organization Corner is a place for Murphy Middle School students to come to get organized. It is available Wednesday mornings 7:50-8:20 in Mrs. Good's room, E109. AVID students will be available to help.


Art club is in need of your help. We are learning about rococo art, and are creating powdered wigs. We are reaching out for donations of cotton balls and toilet paper rolls, only the cardboard roll not with all the paper, for our project. You can drop donations off at Mr. Adams’ art room B118 anytime during the school day. We thank you for your patronage, as we look to realize our inner Marie Antoinettes.
