Message from Jeannette Harding, Principal

Welcome parents and students to John Muir Middle School!

I am extremely excited for the 2014-2015 school year!  We have been working very hard preparing classrooms and curriculum, organizing staff and planning for a wonderful opening to the school. 

I previously was an assistant principal at Gunderson High School for nine years.  During that time, I always enjoyed working with former John Muir students and now I get the opportunity to help prepare them for high school!  The staff at John Muir is working diligently to offer a high quality of instruction for students able to accelerate academically as well as to students who need tailored academic support to meet their full potential.  As your principal, it is my honor to ensure that we are all doing the best that we can to support, prepare and guide our students towards their future goals. 

As school resumes, please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns/questions you may have.  For your information, each administrator is responsible for a class –

6th grade Ms. Jeannette Harding, Principal

7th grade Mr. Giovanni Bui, Assistant Principal of Discipline

8th grade Mr. Ryan Chamberlin, Assistant Principal of Instruction

Thank you for your time.  It is going to be a great year!

SOAR Falcons!!!!

Curriculum: Common Core Standards 2013 - 2014

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.

This is the link from the state in regards to our ELA standards K-12 and as well as history and science ELA literacy.
