The best way to make a difference in your child’s education is to be involved. Please take a few minutes to look over the descriptions for the various volunteer opportunities we have at Murphy. Whether you can volunteer an hour a week or an hour a year we would be thankful to have your help! We are happy to have you be a part of the Murphy family and look forward to working with you.


Become a PTA Member
Becoming a PTA member is the easiest way to get involved. We won't ask you to sign up for anything you don't want to do. This is the simplest way to support the many programs we provide for our students throughout the year without having to worry about time commitments, being overworked, or anything else.


Complete a Background Check with PISD 

In order to volunteer on any Plano ISD campus, including Murphy, you must be cleared through the district.  All volunteers must reapply with the district each year to be considered for volunteer opportunities. Complete your application now and be ready to go when the new school year begins! After you complete the application, you may log back in to the Volunteer Application on www.pisd.edu to check your own status.


Please allow 2 days to 2 weeks for clearance status to appear. Once you're cleared through PISD, sign up to volunteer.


Sign Up to Volunteer

Everyone has their own unique interests. We have many different areas of volunteering for you to choose from. Complete the Volunteer Areas of Interest Form and let us know what you would like to help with.


Volunteers of the Month

Each month the Murphy Middle School PTA selects individuals who have given of themselves and their time to volunteer to make MMS a better place for the student, faculty, or parents. We hope to encourage others to volunteer their time, talent, and ideas in whatever capacity they can.
