Hello Weller Families,

We are excited to announce that MUSD has adopted a new English Language Arts textbook. Our new materials are from Benchmark Advance/Hardcourt Press. The new instructional materials will have updated content and are aligned to the new California standards. We are sure your child will find the new materials interesting and fun.

The old English Language Arts materials will be marked obsolete and available for you to take home for free. The grade-level materials will be available for your child to take from their classroom after March 13th. We will have a display of free materials during Parent-Teacher conferences on March 14th – 16th in the area between the 100 wing and the Learning lab at Weller. Enjoy the materials!
