Muraoka Families,

We are so proud to announce that Muraoka has been awarded with the highest attendance in CVESD for the month of October! We are so proud of all our Momongas since we know that being at school on time each day has an incredible impact on student learning. Let’s keep it up, Momongas!

We will have a special Military Mingle beginning at 7:45 am and Military family members will be invited to stay for our Momonga Monday Assembly beginning at 8:15 am.

Red Curb: We have seen a decrease in parked cars in the red zone! Thank you!

The parking lot on Santa Diana is coned off at approximately 7:45am each morning. This is to keep our pedestrians safe. Please do not move the orange cones to access the parking lot. Thank you so much for helping us keep our walking Momongas safe!

Student Council Red Ribbon Spirit Week:

 Red Ribbon History:

Enrique “Kiki” Camarena was a Drug Enforcement Administration Agent. In honor of Kiki’s memory and his battle against illegal drugs, friends and neighbors began to wear red badges of satin. Parents then began to form coalitions using Camrena as their model while embracing his belief that one person can make a difference. These coalitions adopted the symbol of Camarena’s memory the Red Ribbon. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.

ELAC Meeting Presentation:

This past Thursday, Mrs. Mazeau and Mrs. Rayray held a parent meeting sponsored by ELAC and reviewed our District sponsored Technology accelerators (Achieve 3000, iReady and Smarty Ants, our school wide instructional focus and gave parents an opportunity to rate thoughts on ThoughtExchange.  Please feel free to review the PowerPoint if you were unable to attend.

Muraoka Families,

Thank you to our amazing PTO for organizing the first PTO Movie Night of the year!! We had such an incredible turn out that we needed two screens to accommodate all our families. Thank you to all our grade levels who sold food to raise money for field trips and our outside vendors were also a hit. It truly was a spectacular night and representative of the amazing community we have here at Muraoka! Please read below to stay informed about upcoming events.

Mrs. Mazeau and Mrs. Rayray

Parents on Campus:

Please keep these tips in mind as you join us for drop off each morning:

  • Please keep everything with wheels outside of the front gate
  • Please allow students to eat independently in lunch arbor, parents can stand near fence
  • Please line up behind student lines to keep students visible and to give teachers direct access to their students
  • Please send teachers emails or dojo messages and limit conversations with the teacher as this allows them to return to class quickly to begin their instructional day
  • Please say goodbye to your child at the line and allow only the teacher to lead students to the building
  • Please leave all pets at home
  • Please exit campus as quickly as possible 

Traffic and Safety:  

We recently met with the City Engineer regarding the traffic concerns surrounding Muraoka. We are working together to create an additional drop off/pick up loop for families. Until these plans are in place, please help us keep are students safe by adhering to the following:

  • Orange cones: Thank you in advance for respecting the orange cones. They are strategically placed to keep our students and families safe.
  • Red Curbs – “as required under California Vehicle Code Section 21458(a)(1), a curb painted red shall indicate no stopping, standing, or parking whether the vehicle is attended or unattended.”
  • Yellow curbs are for loading and unloading only – cars should not be parked and left unattended.  If you are on a yellow curb, you should be in your vehicle.
  • Use crosswalks for crossing the street and parking lot.  
  • When dropping students off, please be sure that they exit the vehicle on the right so that they get out directly onto the sidewalk closest to the school building.
  • Follow traffic patterns and do not double park along parking spaces

Please reach out to Mrs. Mazeau or Mrs. Rayray if you can volunteer before or after school 1-5 days a week.

 ELAC Meeting:

Please join us for a Coffee Chat sponsored by ELAC. We will be reviewing our District Technology Accelerators (Smarty Ants, Achieve 3000, iReady) and our school wide instructional focus in Writing. We hope to see you there! All parents are welcome.

We hope that you all enjoyed the long weekend. It is hard to believe that we are approaching the final stretch of the 1st quarter. We still have many events to look forward to including the Book Fair, Student Council Elections, MATSURI Awards and Parent Teacher Conferences! Please read the parent bulletin for additional details and as always, reach out via email with any questions!

Mrs. Mazeau and Mrs. Rayray

September is National Attendance Month:

   Every minute counts when students are at school. This year we are working on improving attendance for all our students. Let’s help all our Momongas build a habit of good attendance early to set them up for success as they move into middle school and high school. Review our Attendance Pro Tips provided:

  • Make sure students come to school well rested with a good night’s sleep.
  • Allow plenty of time to get ready, get out the door, and transition to school.
  • Have clothes and shoes ready and homework in the backpack the night before.
  • Call the school for each day of illness or injury.
  • Bring doctor notes to the school office the day after an appointment.
  • Respond to school messages about your student’s attendance.
  • Talk with the teacher and principal if your student has concerns about attending school.

Parent Teacher conferences

Parent teacher conferences  and minimum days will begin on Thursday, September 15th – Thursday, September 22nd . This is a wonderful time to connect with the classroom teacher, learn more about your child’s progress and create goals for the school year. Teachers will be scheduling conferences with all parents/guardians (no students please). If you have not received a notification to sign up for a conference time, please reach out to your classroom teacher to sign up. Virtual option is available by parent/guardian request.

Social Emotional Learning Focus

If you attended our SEL Parent Chat sponsored by ELAC, you know that Social Emotional learning is an important focus of ours at Muraoka.  We know that when we have clear expectations for students and a common language across all grade levels that students thrive! Here is a little bit about what we have been learning and the expectations at Muraoka:

Momonga 4:

The Momonga 4 are our 4 pillars or our 4 expectations. They are: Be safe, Be respectful, Be responsible and Be kind. Teachers and staff have gone into detail about what these expectations look like in different parts of the school. Each week, at our Momonga Monday Blacktop Assembly, we choose a different area to of focus. For example, we recently focused on lunch arbor expectations. We know that when students are aware of the expectations it is easier for them to meet them! We love recognizing our Momongas for meeting expectations (pink slips/golden tickets).

Zones of Regulation:

We use the first quarter of school to build emotional self-understanding and develop self-awareness in our Momongas through the Zones of Regulation program. Students are taught to identify what zone they are in and explore tools they can use to get them into the preferred zone for learning. Zones of regulation lessons are taught in the first quarter and reinforced throughout the year.

Positivity Project:

Muraoka uses the Positivity Project as our character program to empower students and to build positive relationships and be their best selves. Some of the strengths include humility, bravery, self-control, and perseverance. This week: Cheering Other’s Successes.

Traffic and Safety:

We recently met with CVESD’s Emergency Preparedness and Security Manager regarding the traffic concerns surrounding Muraoka. We are working on putting a plan in place that includes School Resource Officer presence on campus, Student Safety Patrol and Traffic Parent volunteers. Please reach out to Mrs. Mazeau or Mrs. Rayray if you can volunteer before or after school 1-5 days a week.

Here are the most critical reminders for this week:

  • Red Curbs – “as required under California Vehicle Code Section 21458(a)(1), a curb painted red shall indicate no stopping, standing, or parking whether the vehicle is attended or unattended.” 
  • Yellow curbs are for loading and unloading only – cars should not be parked and left unattended.  If you are on a yellow curb, you should be in your vehicle.
  • Use crosswalks for crossing the street and parking lot.
  • When dropping students off, please be sure that they exit the vehicle on the right so that they get out directly onto the sidewalk closest to the school building.
  • Follow traffic patterns and do not double park along parking spaces

Muraoka Families,

The highlight of the week was certainly the APEX Fun Run on Thursday! Thank you to all our families and donors for making it so memorable for our Momongas! Our final numbers are not in, but it is estimated that we raised over 130,000 dollars, incredible! We appreciate all your support with our biggest fundraiser of the school year. Please read our parent bulletin carefully as we have included some important reminders.

Visits and Phone Calls to Front Office:

Our front office staff is incredibly busy servicing the families’ of 1115 students. We love our Momonga community but would like to remind you to limit your visits and calls to essential business only. Please refer to our SchoolDojo, ClassDojo or Muraoka blog for information on release times, schedules, and upcoming events. Thank you in advance for sending your child to school with their lunch/snack/water in hand as we do not have the staff to deliver lunches or water bottles to classrooms throughout the day.

Early release:

We receive daily requests for early release of students. We ask that you try to schedule appointments after school when possible and remember that if your child is being pulled out of school early, their absence is unexcused unless accompanied by a doctor’s note.

Traffic and Safety

It takes all our entire community to help uphold the safety expectations.  When we do not, it compromises the safety of everyone, but most importantly, the safety of our students.  If you are interested in volunteering to help with traffic control, please email felicitas.rayray@cvesd.org

Here are a few important reminders:

  • Walk to school if you can!
  • Muraoka has only ONE drop off loop: the southern parking lot directly in front of the front office.
  • Red Curbs – “as required under California Vehicle Code Section 21458(a)(1), a curb painted red shall indicate no stopping, standing, or parking whether the vehicle is attended or unattended.” 
  • Yellow curbs are for loading and unloading only – cars should not be parked and left unattended.  If you are on a yellow curb, you should be in your vehicle.
  • Use crosswalks for crossing the street and parking lot.
  • When dropping students off, please be sure that they exit the vehicle on the right so that they get out directly onto the sidewalk closest to the school building.
  • Follow traffic patterns and do not double park along parking spaces.

Thank you for your help in keeping our parking lot and neighbor safe, which ultimately keeps our students safe.

Sports Teams @ Muraoka:

Are you interested in coaching a sport at Muraoka? We are lucky to be a part of the largest Elementary Intramural Sports Lleague in the nation! These are the sports offered this fall that would compete against other CVESD schools:

  • Girls and Boys Volleyball
  • Co-ed Kickball

Please email Mrs. Rayray at felicitas.rayray@cvesd.org by September 2nd, 2022 if you are interested in coaching. The season for these 3 sports begins October 13, 2022.

We are so thrilled to be welcoming back Mrs. Mazeau as the principal of Muraoka. She was greatly missed but we know that she will be so proud of all that we have accomplished the first five weeks of school. Mrs. Rayray will return to being the very proud Associate Principal of Muraoka and we are thankful for the time that Mrs. Callado supported our wonderful school community.

We are halfway to our 100k goal! Please continue to share your student’s fundraising page as every donation, big or small, counts! All students will receive an Apex dry fit shirt, so please remember to log in and select the shirt size for your student. We are thankful for your commitment to creating a brand-new library space for student and community use at Muraoka. We are incredibly excited to start stocking the space with new books for our Momongas.

Volunteers for APEX:

Each classroom teacher will designate 2 parent volunteers to support this event (hydration stations and shirt marking). These parent volunteers must be cleared prior to our event on Thursday. Unfortunately, only designated parent volunteers, staff and students will be allowed on campus for this event. The event will take place on the southern lawn and all other spectators may watch from the street side of the fencing along Santa Victoria Rd. Thank you for your understanding as we are unable to accommodate any additional spectators on our campus.

Please do not forget sunscreen and water for your student!

Volunteers will support their grade level based on the schedule below:

We have many students who are arriving to school prior to 7:35 am. This is a friendly reminder that our breakfast gate does not open until 7:35 and students should NOT arrive prior to this as we have no supervision. If your child is not eating breakfast on campus, they should arrive no earlier than 7:55am. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to make the safety of our students a priority.

CVESD Cell Phone Policy:

As stated in our parent handbook, the CVESD cell phone policy requires students to turn off and store cell phones as soon as they arrive on campus. There are no exceptions. Cell phones that are seen out will be stored and returned to students at the end of the day. Watches must only tell the time. All other features on the watch must be deactivated. Thank you for supporting our District cell phone policy.

Muraoka Families,

It is hard to believe that we are starting our 5th week of the quarter! Our Momongas are working hard to finish their beginning of the year assessments and learn the routines and procedures of their new grade. We are so proud of them! Please read carefully for this week’s important announcements.

Morning Arrival:

Thank you for exiting campus quickly at our 8:15 bell. Thanks to you we have been able to lock the gates approximately 3 minutes after the bell has rung. This is impressive considering the size of our school. Please continue to keep the following in mind:

  • Please opt to send an email or dojo message to the classroom teacher if there is something that needs to be communicated at the start of the day.
  • Please allow only the teacher to walk students into the building
  • Breakfast: Only Muraoka students should sit in the arbor to enjoy our school breakfast. Please stand around the perimeter of the lunch arbor if you are accompanying your child during this time.

Traffic and Safety

It takes all our entire community to help uphold the safety expectations.  When we do not, it compromises the safety of everyone, but most importantly, the safety of our students.  If you are interested in volunteering to help with traffic control, please email felicitas.rayray@cvesd.org

Campus Clinic

Campus Clinic, operated by COVID Clinic, is the organization that will be providing testing for students and staff here on campus each Wednesday at Muraoka Elementary.

Optional testing will take place every Wednesday.  Campus Clinic staff will be on campus and will test only students and staff who have consent to be tested.  PCR tests will be used, and results are shared with parent(s) via email within 24-48 hours.  If your child has tested positive within the last 90 days, PCR tests are NOT recommended because they can pick up small fragments of the virus.  Antigen testing is not available through Campus Clinic yet.  If that changes, we will let our community know.

If you did not receive an email from Campus Clinic and want to have your child participate, please email support@campusclinic.orgThey will be able to assist you with registration.  Our front office does not handle registration for testing.   Again, this is optional.

APEX Fun Run:

Apex Leadership co. is our biggest fundraiser effort of the school year. Apex combines fitness, fundraising and leadership into a united event that will build student character and raise funds for our school. Please be on the lookout for pledge packets on August 15th.

Apex combines fitness, fundraising and leadership into a united event that will build student character and raise funds for our school. Please be on the lookout for pledge packets on August 15th. The fundraiser culminates with a fun-run on August 26th for grades K-6. Each classroom teacher will be looking for 2 parent volunteers to help on the day of the event. Approved volunteers, staff and students will be the only people this event will be able to accommodate. Please wait for more information through your classroom teacher.
