Weekly Bulletin 1/16-1/20

Muraoka Families,

We hope that our Muraoka families stayed safe and warm on this very wet weekend! Our 3rd quarter is off to a great start and our families are adapting well to our new dismissal procedures. We hope that you have found these procedures to ease some of the congestion we experience at pick up. Muraoka families have done a wonderful job of vacating our campus quickly after connecting with their students. We continue to ask that students refrain from using the play structure after school.  Thank you and have a wonderful week!

Mrs. Mazeau and Mrs. Rayray

TK/K Registration Town Hall Meeting

Do you have a child at home ready to enroll in Kindergarten or TK for the 23-24 school year? If so, please see flyers below for an informational meeting regarding TK and Kindergarten registration. Please note that registration for ALL new students for the 23-24 school year begins on February 15th, 2023.

Student Absences Excused vs Unexcused:

All the absences listed in the graphic are excused absences.  Any other reason would be considered unexcused.  Any student that misses 10% of their school year is considered chronically absent.  In the coming weeks, we will be reaching out to families whose child/children have missed 10% or more of the school year to see how we can work together to improve their attendance.

Just a reminder that school starts at 8:15am each morning and students can arrive on campus at 7:35 for breakfast only.  All students on campus prior to 7:55 must be eating breakfast in the lunch arbor.

ELAC Meeting: Please join us this Thursday, January 19th @ 8:30 am for a coffee chat sponsored by ELAC. The topic of the presentation will be around our upcoming ELPAC testing with strategies and resources that can be used at home! Please join us as there is always an opportunity to ask general questions around other topics. Hope to see you there!

SSC Meeting: Please join us this Thursday, January 19th @ 3:00pm for our School Site Council Meeting. We will be reviewing midyear data from our most recent school wide diagnostic exams.

This is Us Yearbook Contest for 4th-6th grades:

This year, all Muraoka staff and students have engaged in learning and activities that focus on who we are. Each classroom has a wall dedicated to this learning and we have loved reading poems, family recipes and seeing your pictures. This is Us will be the theme for our yearbook cover as we continue to identify our differences and learning to viewing these differences as strengths. Please see the details of the contest in the flyer
