ptconferenceNOV 16-20: Parent-Teacher Conferences
School ends @ 12:50

Look for an invitation from your student(s) teacher to sign up for a Parent/Teacher Conference during the week of Nov 16-20. These are important check-ins with your child's teacher(s) to see how they're doing!

Each teacher handles their classroom sign-ups and makes every effort to provide a range of time-slots to accommodate families, especially those with more than one child at Miraloma. Check with your teachers for more info.

School will end at 12:50pm each day that week. After school programs will begin at 12:50pm.

inclusive DEC 7-11: Volunteer for Inclusive Schools Week!
Mark your Calendars, our Miraloma family will be celebrating Inclusive Schools Week, December 7 - 11th!

For those of you new to the celebration, Inclusive Schools Week is an annual, nationwide, K-12 celebration of our efforts to promote and build inclusive, welcoming school communities that embrace and support people of all natural and diverse abilities, and sociological and cultural backgrounds.

At Miraloma, ISW gives students additional tools to deal with feelings of inclusion, exclusion and differences, to build on our ongoing social-emotional strategies, and to support our bully-free curriculums.

Parent help with ISW is very much appreciated and needed. If this sounds like a program you'd like to be a part of, please check out the ISW parent opportunities below:
  • 5 - 8 volunteers to assemble ISW necklaces for the kids (Thanksgiving week)
  • 4-5 parent volunteers for the Kinder's vision disability workshop (Monday December 7th 10-11am)
  • 1 volunteer to help the authors with media set up for their assembly (December 9th 9am)
  • 6 - 8 volunteers to help Hospitality Lead Katherine Shedrick with the ISW potluck set up and clean up
And please join us Wednesday December 9th, 6pm - 8pm for our annual ISW POTLUCK! Please bring a dish to share - ideally one that celebrates a family tradition - and sit down for a fun meal with your Miraloma Family.
