Murphy PTO: About Us



Don't forget to join the Murphy PTO! Because we are a PTO, 100% of your $10 annual dues directly benefits the students. 

Student Appreciation Day

Students work hard all year! This past spring we were able to reward the students with "Student Appreciation Day." The Kona Ice truck came to visit in June and each student enjoyed a Kona ice during their lunch period!

Teacher Grants

With the proceeds from our annual Basket Dinner, the Murphy PTO is able to fulfill teacher grant requests. Past examples include Battle of the Books run by Mrs. Knox, extra books requested by members of the English Department to encourage independent student reading, and various other teacher requests to improve learning. 

Sprit wear

Sprit wear makes a great gift, and the purchase of Spirit Wear helps the PTO!
