I can create a ps1 file with the following:
move-mailbox ps1 targetdatabase Standard Users - 200MB -Confirm:$False
move-mailbox ps2 targetdatabase Standard Users - 200MB -Confirm:$False
move-mailbox ps3 targetdatabase Standard Users - 200MB -Confirm:$False
move-mailbox ps4 targetdatabase Standard Users - 200MB -Confirm:$False
move-mailbox ps5 targetdatabase Standard Users - 200MB -Confirm:$False

However it will only move one mailbox at a time. Is there anyway to move more then 1 at a time via the EMS?
