Less plastic waste, healthier oceans

After students at Mann Elementary learned how much plastic ends up in the ocean, and the harmful effects it has on marine life, they tried not to use single-use plastic for 30 days. In culmination of the school’s efforts, students attended an assembly by “Ocean” Annie Crawly on June 8, World Oceans Day.



    Early birds get the books at Muir family event

    Dad and daughter read while enjoying doughnuts and fruit.Have you thought about finding time in the morning to read with your child? About 100 students brought a parent or grandparent with them to John Muir Elementary School on the morning of October 6. Families stopped by the library before school to pick out free donated books and read together. Doughnuts and fruit were also provided.

    Teacher-librarian Tim Platt started the Parents and Pastries tradition six years ago. He invites families to come read before school three times a year. Muir families donate the new and gently used books.
