This is your update for the Week of May 18th

Hello Falcon Families

Friday will be a minimum day.  Students will be dismissed at 1:12 on Friday.

End of the year field trip permission slips and money was due last week. Don’t miss out! If you want to go turn it in right away to Mrs. Atencio in the office. Students must meet academic and behavior expectations to be eligible for the trip.

There is a limited supply of yearbooks available. We will be taking pre orders thru Friday, May 22nd. The cost is $40.00.

Mile make-ups will continue this week on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 2:50pm on the track.

Congratulations 6th, 7th, and 8th graders on earning a free dress day.  All grade levels brought in over 1000 box tops each.  Your free dress day will be on Wednesday, May 20th.​

There will be a free dress day on Friday for students with a 3.0 or better in the last grading period.  Students will receive bracelets later this week.

Please join us for our final PTSA Falcon Feeding Frenzy at Chevys on Thursday, May 21 from 11 AM to 10 PM.  Chevys will donate 20% of your bill to PTSA, and EVERY Muir student and teacher will benefit!  Print out and share the attached flyer with your family and friends.  We hope to see you there!

Curriculum: Common Core Standards 2014-2015

Below are sites that can assist parents and students in understanding and preparing for the upcoming shift to Common Core Standards.  These links outline what is Common Core, the rationale for a National Common Core Standard, the shifts in thinking these changes will require from educators, parents, and students, and the substantially different manner in which students will be assessed in 2014-15.  The district team of Curriculum and Instruction, as well as a team of classroom teachers, has been meeting, reviewing the standards, and creating units to prepare SJUSD for this change.  As well, the team of teachers have been piloting these units in preparation for next year’s rollout of Common Core. We are excited about the change to curriculum that fosters greater analysis and critical thinking to assist our students in preparing for their future in the 21st century.
