What a great start to Happiness Month! Monday morning we welcomed students with balloons, music, and lots of smiles! Don’t forget to check the Happiness Calendar sent out last week for fun family activities to increase our levels of happiness. Please read below for important information 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!

ACCESS Testing Updates

Each year in District 54, students who are identified as English Language Learners take a state-mandated test to measure the growth of their English language proficiency skills.  This year, the ACCESS for ELLs Language Proficiency Assessment will be administered between March 17th and May 12th.  Due to the test design, the ACCESS test cannot be administered virtually, and so the state of Illinois is requiring schools to give this test in person to all students who are identified as English Language Learners.  If your student is a remote learner, you will be contacted with information regarding their testing days and times.  Thank you for all of your support and understanding as we complete this assessment.


Material Pick-Up

If you were unable to pick-up your child(ren)’s materials on Wednesday during our material pick-up, please stop by the office between 8:00-4:00 to get their bag. There are important materials for Trimester 3 that your child(ren) will need to participate in lessons virtually.
