The Muirlands Foundation joins the Muirlands staff in extending a cordial invitation to all parents and guardians to our ADULT-ONLY Welcome and Back-to-School Night on Thursday, September 27, 2018.  Join us for a quick meeting (5:15 p.m.-5:30 p.m.) in the Auditorium.  Principal Geof Martin and Foundation Co-Presidents, Christy Littlemore and Maryana Bhak, will share information.

The “first bell” will ring promptly at 5:30 p.m., indicating it’s time to go to your child’s Period 1 class.  Each class period will be just 10 minutes long, so please be sure to follow your child’s schedule carefully!  For your convenience, a blank schedule can be downloaded here.  Just like our students, parents/guardians will have 5-minute passing periods to get to their child’s next class.  During the brief classroom presentations, teachers will describe the curriculum and learning goals, share upcoming projects, identify available support, and more.

You will need to bring a copy of your child’s schedule with you!  While you may get support from staff at the quad area tables, having a copy of your child’s schedule will really help facilitate the evening and ensure you have a chance to hear from all teachers.  All students were provided a Student Planner and were expected to write their schedules in the front.  The Student Planner also has a map of the school printed on the back cover which may be helpful if you are unfamiliar with the campus.  There will be staff helping direct as well.

As time will be very limited, please do not plan on discussing your child’s individual progress at this event.  To schedule a teacher conference, please contact your child’s School Counselor, Mrs. Dominguez (last names A-L) or Mrs. Maches (last names M-Z), or the teacher directly via personal email or voicemail.

*PLEASE NOTE:  Tables will be set up in the Quad Area until 7:00 p.m. where Parents/Guardians who have not done so already can get their confidential PowerSchool Parent Portal information needed to login and monitor their child(ren’s) grades, attendance, and more.  Please bring your Driver’s License or other official form of ID!  Assistance at the tables may be limited.  For your convenience, parents/guardians can also get this information in the office at another time or use their own child's PowerSchool login that all students should know.  Hopefully, returning parents/guardians should already have this important information.

Due to limited parking, please plan to park on the street and allow extra time to walk onto campus.  As a reminder, this is intended to be an ADULT-ONLY event!  We want to support your participation.  If you must bring your school age child(ren), it is expected that they stay in the covered lunch arbor where there will be minimal supervision and not visit classrooms.  A FREE bus will pick up at 4:00 pm at Mann Middle School, 4345 54th Street and at 4:30 pm from Memorial Prep, 2850 Logan Ave.  The bus will depart Muirlands at 7:15 pm.
