Weekly Parent Bulletin ~ 9/19/22 – 9/23/22

Dear Muraoka Families,

It is hard to believe that we are beginning our last week of the quarter! Our 1100 Momongas have been working diligently and will now be able to enjoy a well-deserved break! Don’t forget that district technology accelerators such as SmartyAnts, iReady and Achieve 3000 are still available for use over the break.  Please read below for new information regarding attendance rates, kickball team tryouts and newly elected SSC members.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Mrs. Rayray and Mrs. Mazeau


We will continue parent teacher conferences this week! Remember, all 1st-6th grade students will be dismissed at 1:15 p.m. and Kindergarten students will be dismissed at 1:00 p.m. Preschool schedules will remain the same.  Please make appropriate transportation and childcare arrangements. Your partnership is essential to your child’s success! Thank you for taking the time to meet with us, we look forward to seeing you at your child’s conference! If you have not scheduled your child’s conference yet, please reach out to your child’s teacher.  Virtual options are available upon request.

SSC Members:

Congratulations to Anna Davenport and Roxanna Cooper! They will be representing our Momonga parents on School Site Council. We are still in need of one more parent to serve on School Site Council, please contact Mrs. Rayray if you are interested in this opportunity.


We are looking for a parent representative for our District Budget Advisory Committee (BAC).


The first BAC meeting is scheduled as follows:

  • DATE:    October 26, 2022
  • TIME:    6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
  • PLACE:  Room C, CVESD

Some of the key areas to be discussed at the October 26 BAC meeting will be:

  • Introductions and BAC roles and responsibilities.
  • Report on District and School Site budget process.
  • BAC meeting dates.

Please contact Mrs. Rayray if you are interested!

Attendance Rates for Q1:

If you were able to attend our parent meeting on Thursday, you know that increasing attendance rates is a district wide goal.  Now that Covid is less prevalent, we are returning to monitoring attendance closely. We will be encouraging attendance for our all students through various incentives and programs. If your child is healthy, we want them at school and on time every day.

Attendance tip: Did you know that picking your child up early from school, without a doctor’s note, is considered an unexcused absence? Be sure to schedule appointments after school or bring in a doctor’s note to clear your early dismissal.

Congratulations to the following classrooms for having the highest attendance rate for Quarter 1! Amazing!

Rabine – Room 208 ~ 98%

Regalado – Room 224 ~ 97.4%

Gonzalez – Room 113 ~ 97%

Muraoka Intramural Sports

Thank you to Mr. Lopez, Impact Teacher, who has volunteered to coach a Muraoka Kickball Team. He will be holding tryouts this Wednesday, September 21st for 5th and 6th grade students only. If your student is in the 5th or 6th grade and interested in trying out, please ensure they have a permission slip signed and submitted. Permission slips can be picked up in the front office.

Unfortunately, we did not secure volunteer coaches for Flag Football or Volleyball.

Parent Safety Patrol:

Are you interested in contributing to the safety of our Momongas? Do you have a morning or afternoon available to help with arrival or dismissal? If so, please consider volunteering for our Parent Safety Patrol. We will work around your schedule, and you can volunteer as many or as few days as you would like. Please contact Mrs. Rayray if you are interested!
