SAVE THE DATE: INCLUSIVE SCHOOLS WEEK DECEMBER 3-7 



Inclusive Schools Week is next week! Following the exciting "Alphabet Rockers" assembly on Monday, Tuesday will be "sit with someone new at lunch day." We need parents to join in the cafeteria to help support students meeting "new" friends. No sign up is required; you can just join us on Tuesday, December 4th at lunchtime (and recess, if desired) as follows:
K & 1: 11:20-11:40 (recess between 11-11:20) 
2 & 3: 11:50-12:10 (recess between 11:30-11:50) 
4 & 5: 12:20-12:40 (recess between 12-12:20)

Throughout the week, parent volunteers are needed to assist with ability awareness stations, tie dying, and more--please sign up here to help out! Also, for a look at this year's ISW poster of activities, click here.

STAFF GIFT
It's almost the holidays and we want to give a gift of thanks to the nearly 45 hard-working Miraloma School Staff members who work tirelessly on behalf of our children. 

These individuals support our teachers and our school and interact with our kids every day -- including our librarians, custodial staff, lunchroom staff, counselors, secretary, PE teacher,  and many others. We are asking Miraloma families to contribute to a cash gift for the staff by donating an amount that makes sense for your family here

Please make your donation by Monday, December 17th at 9 pm.
