From the Principal

Maverick Parents and Guardians,

As members of this family, you are part of the vision of academic success that we have created for the 2013-2014 school year. This year, we are “establishing our village” which means we are including everyone in ensuring Murphy’s students increase their academic achievement. Our village is not limited to students, teachers, and administrators, but includes our support staff, school nutrition staff, custodial staff, bus drivers, community partners, feeder schools and, yes, parents and guardians.

We have made academic gains in the past, but in order to reach our school goals, we must commit to the vision by giving 100% to our students. Teachers are expected to prepare rigorous lessons, use data to strengthen students’ weaknesses, teach students to take ownership of their learning, model care and respect, and most important, love our children. If we are to lead students to success, we must have a sound relationship with students, parents, and community. As we work to change the culture and climate of our school, we need to teach students that academics come first in our classrooms and the expectation is for them to act accordingly.

Another important aspect of supporting the vision is teamwork. We must be proactive in dealing with grades and behaviors in an effort to detect potential problems before the problems arise. Of course, behavior issues are not the only reason parents should communicate with the school. Parents should know their child’s academic and attendance situations as well. Set-up conferences as necessary, and keep abreast of your child’s progress. Furthermore, have positive conversations with your child daily. Read with him/her and ensure he/she completes homework.
