IMPORTANT REMINDER: MORNING CIRCLE
With the arrival of rain and "cold" weather, I know it's not easy to get out of bed on time. However, our first bell rings at 7:48 am, and the expectation is that every single student arrives to the Miraloma Yard by 7:50 sharp.

Additionally, thank you for your efforts to encourage your students to fully participate at Morning Circle--it is the one time when our whole community is together, and personally, I think it's really special to see our kindergartners alongside our 5th graders.

Along with the various themes for the week, I love getting our multilingual students out on the microphone so please let me know if your student is up for sharing "good morning" in a language we have not yet learned...

See you tomorrow at 7:48!

COMING UP
TODAY: SSC - Design for Equity Meeting
After several conversations about diversity, inclusion, and closing Miraloma's equity gap, Miraloma's School Site Council will think outside the box by using Design Thinking to address this huge topic in a condensed format.

Design Thinking is a methodology that provides a solution-based approach to solving problems. The five stages of Design Thinking, according to Stanford's d.schoolare as follows: Empathize, Define (the problem), Ideate, Prototype, and Test.

We'll be meeting 5:30-7:00 pm in the Library. All are invited and childcare & pizza is available for school-aged children. Please let us know 
if you need childcare.
