Muir Community,

What a great sunny week we have had! As the weather continues to get warmer, please know that we do go outside any day the real feel temperature is above 0. Please make sure your child has the appropriate outside clothing to make them comfortable during recess. Please see below for important information coming up in 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. Below is a list of our teachers who have Twitter pages. Please follow them to get student updates!
