The Board of Directors of the John Muir High School Alumni Association are so very proud of the leadership that Mr. Timothy Sippel has shown at Muir and we will miss him dearly. We wish him nothing but the best in the new direction his life is taking. Because of his drive to improve the learning atmosphere and his concern for the students, Muir is a much better place than when he arrived. And his accomplishments were not overlooked by anyone as he was recognized as "Principal of the Year." This recognition merely told the world what we already knew at Muir, he is a remarkable person.

Thank you, Tim. Be sure to invite us to commencement when you receive your Doctorate from Harvard in 3 years. No matter where you go from their, "You will Always be a Mustang!"

We Want You!

We're looking for Muir alumni from the classes of 2000 through 2013 to join a committee on a project that they enjoy. The Board would like to have members of these classes to join so that we can offer new and fresh ideas for social events and ways to better support Muir.

We want alumni that have the desire to help continue the heritage of John Muir High to live on; that within you lives the spirit to give back to the school and the community that gave to 'you' when you were a student at Muir. All it takes is some of your time to make it better.

If this person is YOU then plan to join us at our next meeting, usually on the second Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in the school library.
