Pink Ribbon Week

Think Pink! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Leadership will sell pink ribbons during lunch all this week for only $1. The gender that raises the most money will earn a free dress. Last year our Falcons helped raise $466 for the American Cancer Society. Friday will be Pink day, where students will be allowed to wear Pink shirts/sweatshirts (students must wear uniform pants/shorts).

Counseling Offered at Muir

Our student support counselor will be facilitating some counseling groups for students to learn coping skills to help them with social/friendship issues (making positive connections); emotional self-care (how to cope with emotions, problem solving, etc.); making positive decisions in school (staying on task in class, following directions, working in groups, etc.).  If you would like your child to participate in any of these groups or if your child would like to see a counselor at school, please contact our student support counselor, Ms. Ana Fierro-Estrada at (408) 535-6281, ext. 54402.  Our counseling support also counts with counselor interns from Almaden Valley Counseling who can meet with students individually and/or group.

Student ID Cards

Students should have received their ID card on picture day.  It is very important that they bring it to school each day. Students must present their ID card at the cafeteria in order to buy breakfast and lunch.  This goes for anyone who receives free and reduced meals and those whose parents paid on myschoolbucks.com.  Students should keep their ID card in a special place (backpack) so they do not lose it.  Replacement cards are going to cost $1 each.

Student Handbooks

All Muir students should have received the SJUSD Student Handbook. There is a plethora of valuable information inside and none more important than the very first page which is the acknowledgement of handbook and technology acceptable use form. You and your student must sign this front page and turn it in to their teacher to be able to use the technology resources on campus.  The back page has optional choices on photography taken at school and release of information stipulations, but the front page is mandatory to be signed by student and parent and returned as soon as possible. Your explicit attention to this matter is appreciated.
