  • National First Responder Appreciation Day is Saturday September 26th, 2015.  This is a day when the entire nation takes a moment to recognize and appreciate those who serve with bravery and courage as members of the First Responders Unit.

     Within our Murphy School community we have several students who’s Moms, Dads, and varied other family members serve as first responders. On Friday September 25,th the Richard J. Murphy will be hosting our Second Annual “First Responders Appreciation Day” with grades K-5 taking a few moments out of our day to say thank you.

     What do you need to know? On Friday September 25,th

    We will be closing off Worrell Street from 10AM – 2:00PM as our guests of honor will line Worrell Street and give the students from grades K-5 an opportunity to meet and greet these brave men and women. Students will also have an opportunity to discover some of the apparatus used by the first responders.  Our students will have a fantastic opportunity to see a fire truck, police car and ambulance first hand – they will see how they work and what they can expect from each of those departments in an emergency situation.   It is our hope that by introducing our students to the work our First Responders that we can appreciate them and perhaps our students will be less anxious in the event of an emergency.
