    MuM showed our appreciation for our exceptional Administrative Office Staff today! MuM's Office Manager, Mrs. Urich, Health Technician, Mrs. Lockwood, and Office Assistant, Ms. Harrington, are the backbone of our school, Principal Miller's right/left hands, true professionals, and simply the BEST (along with being the first faces our wonderful community will see)! We appreciate all you do each and every day with a positive attitude and smile on your face! They received a bag of goodies, gift cards, and lunch. We didn't forget Mrs. Alfaro who is at MuM regularly subbing in the office too!

    Friday MuM Spirit Days

    Every Friday wear your Murray Manor Spirit Wear, unless it's one of our themed Spirit Days (e.g., Charger Day, Crazy Hair Day, Pajama Day, etc.). Student Council will notify our community of the specific dates for themed Spirit Days.
    Campus Security
    All parents, volunteers, visitors must always check in at the front office and sign in. Our staff highly values maximizing time on task in our learning environments, therefore please plan accordingly for pick up at dismissal. To limit disruptions, plan on coming onto campus at 2:45 pm (in time for our 2:50 pm dismissal). If any sooner, everyone must check in at the front office and wait in the front area, away from classrooms. Additionally, students are not to enter/exit school grounds through the staff parking lot. Students may exit campus on the sidewalk in front of the school office and the sidewalk near the lunch area. Thank you for your support and understanding with ensuring our scholars are safe.

  • Run 4 Fun 21st Century Style
    MuM scholars and families, join us for Run 4 Fun every morning from 8:00-8:25 am on the lower field. As 21st Century scholars, we know it's important to physically get moving, which in turn, helps us focus and concentrate even more during the school day. Our goal is for scholars to reach 100 miles individually and 8,000 miles school-wide by the end of the school year! Let's reach for the stars and mileage will be kept track of as we travel the solar system! Go Mustangs!!

  • MuM's 924 API Tops District 3rd Year in a Row!

    Despite all the challenges facing public schools today, we continue to show growth and a great resolve to put education first. I could not be more proud of our staff, students and community. Murray Manor received a score of  924 (up 7 points from last year's score of 917) on the Academic Performance Index! The API is the cornerstone of California's Public Schools Accountability Act of 1999 and measures the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of academic measures. This is an amazing score and reflects an increase of 6 points from last year and a total 50 points over the last three years. We are also the first school in the District to be above 80% proficient or advanced in both Language Arts and Mathematics on the California STAR test. Although there is so much more to what we do than score well on State test scores, it is a great validation for all of us to know that our vision and hard work is yielding great results. It's reflective of rigorous teaching and our scholars critically thinking.
