Supporting the Vision And Strengthening Our Village
Murphey Middle School
Mavericks Must Succeed!

Maverick Parents and Guardians,

As members of this family, you are part of the vision of academic success that we have created for the 2014-2015 school year. This year, we are “strengthening our village” which means we are including everyone in ensuring Murphey’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.

The PRINCIPAL'S BOOK CLUB is designed to increase comprehension and promote the joy of reading. Each month a book will be featured for discussion. Students will read the selected book and write a reflection of what they read to submit to the principal. Several students wil be chosen each month to eat breakfast, chat, reflect and expound on the BOOK OF THE MONTH.
The BOOK OF THE MONTH for October 2014 is Dread Locks. The author of the book is Neal Shusterman.

Book Overview: 
Dread Locks is the first entry in the Dark Fusion series from master storyteller Neal Shusterman. He cleverly weaves together familiar parts of fairy tales and Greek mythology to tell the story of fourteen-year-old Parker Bear, rich and utterly bored with life—until a new girl arrives in town. Tara's eyes are always hidden behind designer sunglasses, and her hair, blond with glimmering spirals, seems almost alive. Parker watches, fascinated, as one by one Tara chooses high school students to befriend.
