Welcome, New Families!
Congratulations and welcome to Miraloma! You are invited to join us for the various welcome events listed below. Make sure to register at Miraloma and sign up for school communications. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
REGISTER YOUR CHILD AT MIRALOMA
All new families must register their student in person at Miraloma Elementary School during school hours (7:50am-1:50pm) March 20-24 through April 3-21*. Please follow the directions on the assignment letter that was mailed to you by the SFUSD or check the SFUSD website. If you do not register** your student at school by the deadline mentioned in your letter, you may lose your student’s spot at Miraloma.
*School is closed during Spring Break (NO registration), March 27 - March 31
(see holidays and early release days on our school calendar).
**Sign-ups for School Communications (see below) do NOT substitute your registration at school.
School begins on August 21, 2017 at 7:50am. Students who do not attend within the first three days of school will be withdrawn. If you have enrolled but do not plan to attend, please notify the school or contact the Educational Placement Center.
All parents/guardians, please:
- SIGN UP for the Miraloma E-mail List - IMPORTANT!!
All official school and PTA communication is digital. This means welcome letters, class assignments, weekly newsletter (the Dragon Digest), principal's announcements, volunteer requests, etc., are sent to this email list.
- JOIN the "Class of 2023" Facebook Group
While not official school communications, this private group is a great way to connect with other Kindergarten families, set up play dates, sports teams, grade-wide camping trips etc. To join the incoming Kindergarten group, request to join the group on the Facebook page.

Your child will be temporarily assigned to a kindergarten homeroom -- you will receive an email on Friday, August 18th with this information.
In order to create 3 balanced, mainstream classrooms, build community, and to get to know all of our new students, kindergarten teacher assignments will be made at the end of the first week of school. Official classroom assignments will be sent via email as well as posted at the school at the end of the day on Friday, August 25th. (Please make sure you are on the school email list.) Thank you for your support and understanding in this process.

GRADE-WIDE CAMPING TRIP
Every grade holds a KOA camping trip - the incoming Kindergarten class of 2023 will be held on May 4-6, 2018 at Petaluma KOA. More information is available on our Class Facebook page. (camping trips are listed on our school calendar)
NOTE about school supplies: At Miraloma, we are very fortunate in that school supplies are provided for all children by the PTA, so you do not need to purchase supplies for your child specifically. #bestnewsever
