Principal’s Message

Muir Community,
We have a lot of exciting events coming up in the Muir Community, so please read below for the updates.


We are excited to launch our Twitter page to keep families in the loop of events happening at Muir. Please follow us @WeAreMuir54. I also have a Twitter page setup to share with families all the happenings in Muir classrooms. You can follow me @carolyn_allar.


We will be hosting parent and student conferences on, Thursday October 5th.  Teachers will be sending home information in regards to your conference time.  During conferences, students will share with their parents their goals from the year, MAP data and their action steps.  Conferences are a great way to partner with your child and their teacher.  If you have not received information in regards to your child’s conference please contact the classroom teacher.
