Dear Parents,

Welcome to Martin Murphy!  We are excited to see you and your students, both new and returning.  This year, we will be working toward meeting our school mission: to empower all students with the education and values needed for future success.  Two years ago, we engaged all stakeholder groups, families, students, and staff, to develop a list of core values focused around the word empower. We developed the following shared values: enthusiasm, mindfulness, perseverance, ownership, work ethic, equity, and rigor.  Our focus this year and beyond will be to empower all students with these core values so that they may be better prepared for the challenges they face in high school, college, or a career. We are excited to take on this challenge and look forward to working with you to support your child with their educational success. 

 If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call our front office.  We look forward to seeing all of you and serving your students this year.

Thank you,


Alex Aasen
