Principal’s Message – November 26, 2019

Muir Community,
Today was a great day to be at Muir! We had the Windy City Bulls Pep Squad join us for an assembly today. Your child learned about the 3-Point Play program. Flyers will be sent home today, and when completed, your child can receive a free ticket to a game. I hope you enjoy the next couple days over this Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. I know I will spend time reflecting on all of the things I am grateful for-especially working alongside the Muir Community!

We use Twitter to share and celebrate the wonderful things happening at Muir. Please follow me @carolyn_allar and our Muir page @WeAreMuir54.
