Principal’s Message – October 26, 2018

Thank you to the PTA for sponsoring such a fun event last evening. Our families enjoyed decorating pumpkins, playing bingo and dancing with Ms. Aguayo. Please read below for important information coming up in the Muir Community!


As many of you are probably aware, I am expecting baby #2. Today was my last day with students as we prepare for the arrival of our new son. While I am gone, Pam Samson, former District 54 Principal, will be coming in to support the building. In addition, Mrs. Garza will be coming back in to support on a part-time basis. If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please reach out to Ms. Burke or Mrs. Samson. I will miss everyone while I am gone and look forward to seeing you when I return.


We use Twitter to share and celebrate the wonderful things happening at Muir. The following staff members have new Twitter pages. Please follow me @carolyn_allar and our Muir page @WeAreMuir54.
