Update from Our Feeder School 
Last weekend, Denman students each received their own free iPad with data plan. Denman was chosen as one of three SFUSD middle schools to pilot this one-to-one technol ogy plan. The Denman Tech Squad, including Miraloma's alumni, Jake Gittelman, Noah Linder, and Steyn Cools, guided families through their iPad configuration and will continue to be trained in providing Tech Support for Denman staff, teachers and students. #DenmanPride

recessVOLUNTEER: Volunteer at Recess!
Recess is an integral part of our children's socio-emotional development. A huge part of making sure recess at Miraloma can be a positive space for all of our students is by having enough caring and responsible adults on the yard to help provide supervision. Please contact me to volunteer!

[See recess schedule on our website]
