Welcome back John Muir Eagles to another school year! I am looking forward to another great year! We will continue John Muir’s long history of success that has been built on traditions that have provided students with exceptional instruction in a warm and caring environment.
John Muir is now in our 3rd year as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) focused school, creating a pathway for our students through Project Lead the Way. Again, this year we will have two classes in grades 3-5th that will participate in STEM modules and this year we will be adding an additional class in grades K-2. It is our desire and commitment to provide Muir students with a 21st Century education emphasizing Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Communication. Eventually, it is our goal to have STEM in all grades K-5. Also, we are a certified AVID school. We offer AVID in all 3rd-5th grade classes. AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) teaches skills and behaviors to prepare our students for college readiness in a global society. In addition, all students in 1st-5th grades have 1:1 chromebooks in their classrooms. Students in 4th/5th grades will have the opportunity to take their chromebooks home after a parent attends a meeting and signs necessary paperwork. At John Muir, it is our desire that students become lifelong self-directed learners who are responsible citizens, fluent readers, problem solvers, technologically aware and effective communicators prepared for college and careers.To read more, click here...
