    Please note that all unmarked, abandoned clothing is donated to charity at the start of every break. Any clothing or lunch items with a student name on it will be returned to the scholar. All lost items can be checked daily as they are stowed in the lost and found rack near the auditorium. Found personal items such as glasses, jewelry, etc. are kept in the front office.

    MUM scholars will be able to participate in the Attendance Challenge again this 2017-2018 school year.

    The Excellence Attendance (no more than 3 absences) and Perfect Attendance (no absences) Challenge is sponsored by Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber.

    At the end of the 2017-2018 school year, MUM scholars who meet the attendance criteria will be invited to participate in a special recognition ceremony hosted by Assemblymember Weber.

    Last year, MUM scholars were recognized in a ceremony during the summer at Sea World. They received, along with a parent/guardian, early/free admittance into Sea World after the ceremony. At the ceremony, our scholars also received breakfast, a certificate, and a medal, along with many Assembly members, Mayors, the State Superintendent, etc. in attendance to honor them.

    Let see who's up to the challenge this school year. Go Mustangs!

  • Run 4 Fun - 21st Century Style
    MUM scholars and families, join us for Run 4 Fun every morning from 7:30-7:55 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! Go Mustangs!!
    See flyer linked below:

    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.

This award is a direct reflection of the dedication, hard work, and vision of our school’s educational community, and we are so proud to receive this award for our school.
