Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
At Miramonte, we fulfill Dr. Floyd B Buchanan’s philosophy of a fair break for every kid. High academic expectations are coupled with top-notch co-curricular activities to ensure that every student can maximize their potential in mind, body, and spirit. And we will do it all virtually for now!
This year promises to be our best one yet! We will focus on the message of “Mustang Strong.” This year we will build on the Positivity Project to our students, teaching and educating them about 24 characters strengths that they all possess and how to use those strengths to show Positivity in Action. Not only will building this culture help our students in their academic endeavors, students will use these strengths in all aspects of their lives. We will continue to help meet the social/emotional needs of our students to ensure their academic success.
Though at a distance, we will help kids to learn the skills needed for perseverance as that is what we all need to show during these challenging times. We will also have many opportunities to build empathy and model grade under pressure during the school year. As students learn more about themselves in this unique environment, they will begin to understand and value just how diverse our campus is.
We encourage every student to be involved in our campus. Students can show their school spirit by participating in our virtual rallies, Red Ribbon week activities, Human Relations Council lunch time activities, or class spirit events. Students can also choose to be virtually involved in oral interpretation, leadership, and other co-curriculars as the year unfolds. We hope that every 4th, 5th, and 6th grader takes advantage of the various sports offered each season even if it means training at home for some of the sports seasons. In short, we want every student to be a Mighty Mustang!
Everyday we tell our students “At Miramonte, we love you and there’s nothing you can do about it!” We hope you feel that every time you step on to our campus.
Your Fellow Mustang,
Ms. Laura Hart
