Samsung Solve for Tomorrow


Congratulations to John Muir Middle School Science Teacher David Ng on being selected as one of the five state finalists to represent California in the Samsung US “Solve for Tomorrow” contest!

Mr. Ng’s proposal involves implementing a two-way, speech-to-speech language translation system to create a more inclusive environment that provides equitable learning opportunities for all students regardless of language skills.  Click HERE to learn more about the contest and see all the state finalists. As part of the next phase, Mr. Ng will be asked to submit a full lesson plan for how his students will address this challenge.

Important - School Attendance

The regular and punctual attendance of students is expected and enforced. Education code states that any student who is absent from school without valid excuse three full days in one school year or tardy or absent for more than any 30-minute period during the school day without a valid excuse on three occasions in one school year or any combination thereof, is a truant. Please continue to drive home the importance being in class, on time so your child can get the most out of their learning activities.
