The Muir Messenger | March 5, 2018

Hello Muir families,

Our amazing Molly Goltry is planning a lunch for Book Bowl participants, Monday, March 19. Are you able to help pick up pizzas? There are two runs to be made: 5th grade pizzas need to be picked up around 11:30am, and 4th grade pizzas need to be picked up around 12:40pm. Please email Ms. Goltry at if you can lend a hand with one or both pick-ups. Huge thanks.

In the next couple weeks, watch for information in your student's Friday folder about Muireka! Our annual science fair - which is  highly interactive and engaging - is scheduled for 5:30-7:30pm on Friday, April 20. (Note the new day and time.) Students will be visiting the fair during the school day with their classrooms, as well. There will be many ways to participate and get involved, so we'll keep you posted over the next month.

Have a great week,

Kathleen Spencer, President,

Is your child missing a mitten? A hat? A book? A bag? Check our lost and found! It will be cleaned out by spring break, so take a peek while it's alllllll still there.
Have you contributed to our classroom/teacher wish list? It's just been updated with some new items. These in-kind donations really make a big difference to Muir, so thanks for taking a look HERE and seeing how you can help out. Our gratitude!

This is your PTO!
Jess Yehle has had students at Muir for the last ten years. She has volunteered in many different capacities, including PTO president and playground fundraising co-chair. She says: "I've always been amazed by the community support of Muir. You ask for help and people come through in big ways. Case in point: the playground project. I'm overwhelmed by the generosity shown for this effort, and I cannot wait to see the kids on the new equipment in just a few months!" Tremendous thanks to Jess for giving of her time and energy in countless ways.
