“This is my second year as a principal and I am amazed at what a great school this is, and it’s all because of the people,” commented Dr. Greg Miller, Muir Middle School principal. “A lot of schools may talk about being a family, but I really feel that we are, here at Muir. No other school I have worked at has had this atmosphere.”

“I like Thanksgiving and I am thankful to be at Muir, so I thought we should have Thanksgiving because we are a family here,” explained Dr. Miller. “Everyone thought it was a great idea. The whole idea is for us to spend and enjoy time together.”

“The first annual Thanksgiving at Muir was a huge success,” commented Dr. Miller. “Almost 90 members of the faculty and staff participated and had a great time. There was way to much food as everyone contributed a dish.”

Teachers Barry Sarna, Glen Jaffe and Steven Moos performed and provided music during the meal and Logix Federal Credit Union donated 25 $5 gift cards to Menchies that were given away in a raffle.
