Welcome to John Muir Elementary 2014-2015
School Family Partnerships recently launched its Neighbor-to-Neighbor (N2N) program to gather valuable commmunity, family and staff input on school bell times helping the district determine if it should change school start times for elementary and secondary schools starting the 2016-2017 School Year.
John Muir Elementary offers three full-time kindergarten classes. There are many reasons why kindergarten is important. When your child attends kindergarten he or she will learn the basics. This means the basics in math, science, reading, writing, social studies, and more. You want your child to be prepared for the first grade and beyond and in almost all cases kindergarten accomplishes that.
Kindergarten also prepares children for the following school years because they meet new friends and learn how to communicate. Developing these communication skills early on is important because the sooner children learn how to communicate well the sooner they can do so.

The Creative Advantage: restoring arts access to all Seattle Public Schools
The Creative Advantage is a partnership between Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture that aims to ensure that every student at every district school has the opportunity to learn through the arts every year, from kindergarten through 12th grade.
The program began with 13 schools in the Central Arts Pathway in 2013 and will expand to 11 schools in the South-Southwest region of the district in the fall of 2015.
