Welcome Back Letter

  • Dear Wildcat Families,

    Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at John Muir Elementary. I have the privilege of returning as your principal for my second year. I look forward to capitalizing on all the learning that I did last year as a new principal!

    At John Muir we are proud to provide a child-centered environment that cultivates character, fosters academic excellence and embraces diversity. This year, we have added the CuperDoodle Preschool program to our site, and we are working on strengthening our afterschool enrichment offerings. We will continue to offer weekly music and art instruction by instructors who are primarily funded by our PTA, whose fundraising efforts are a crucial part of what John Muir offers. Please do consider donating to our PTA and maybe even volunteering this year! We want to continue our tradition of families, community and staff, joining as partners to develop creative, exemplary learners with the skills and enthusiasm to contribute to a constantly changing global society. We are thrilled that you are joining us!

     Sincerely,

    Adrienne Van Gorden
