Falcon Weekly News

Hello Falcon Families,

This is your weekly update.

Honors Night will be on Wednesday in the cafeteria to recognize students with a 3.0 or better GPA and Perfect Attendance.  Congratulations to the 650 students being honored.  6th grade Honors Night will start at 5pm and 7th and 8th grade Honors Night will be at 6:30pm.  Students must meet at the flag pole 30 minutes before their Honors Night to sign-in.  All students with a 3.0 or better first semester will also get free dress on Wednesday.

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming this January 26-30.  Students may drop in and purchase books before school, at lunch, after school, and at Open House.  Our goal for this year is to encourage John Muir students to read and to help the library earn money for new books.

For those unable to make it to Muir, there is an on-line site which will be active from 1/18/15 to 2/ 07/15.  The address is:

Please support John Muir’s Library and continue making it a place where the students can find great books.​

We are also looking for parent volunteers to help during the book fair.  If you are interested in volunteering at any time during January 26-30 or have questions, please contact Monika Ryser at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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.

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