Wildcat Highlights

                                              Opening ceremony of the Hydration Station in the MPR.

We are proud to announce the new addition to our school! We have installed a Hydration Station, generously donated by United Way. This provides clean filtered water that is cold and refreshing. It encourages more water consumption and reduces our carbon footprint by reducing plastic waste.


We have partnered with Padres en Accion and our amazing parents have been featured. We are so proud of them!

Monthly Growth Mindset


Each month we will be focusing on a growth mindset to foster positive growth in our school community. Our Wildcat Student Council will announce the trait at the first Wildcat Rally of the month.

Growth mindset trait for March: COURAGE

For the month of February the monthly growth mindset is COURAGE. COURAGE means the ability to do something that we are fearful of, or finding an inner strength. When we feel deeply passionate about something, we find courage and trust that whatever our circumstances are right now, we can find a valuable seam of courage.

Wildcat Rallies


Each Friday, we will be holding Wildcat Rallies starting right at 8:15. Parents are invited to serve as a spectator to see performances by one class per week and find out which students' names are drawn for Wildcat Tickets prizes. This is the perfect opportunity to hear important announcements and join in the fun with our school!



Starting on March 21, 2018 the HOPE Clinic will be open until 5 pm on select Wednesdays of the month.


Please see the attached flyers for more details and a list of services.


Please contact the HOPE Clinic for more information at 949-515-6725.

Daniela Logan

Daniela Logan
Daniela Logan - Center

Daniela Logan serves as an accounting assistant III and has worked for NMUSD for more than 20 years and is the employee of the year in the category of Office and Technical. Daniela is a talented and dedicated employee whose customer service focus builds strong relationships with various departments and school employees across the district. Her positive attitude and ability to truly connect with people of varying personalities, needs, and budget knowledge make her an invaluable resource to the fiscal team and district as a whole.


Daniela is critical in assisting the management of programs that directly impact students such as early childhood education, after school enrichment programs, and the preschool programs. She also developed and implemented a budget training program for the school sites and departments that she supports. This gives those departments a greater understanding of the budget process. Living in Long Beach, Daniela also serves students in that area too. She is a member of the Assistance League of Long Beach Mentoring Program. In this program she serves local high school students and connects them with internship opportunities, raises funds for college scholarships, organizes career oriented workshops, and hosts cultural activities. She is dedicated to ensuring that all students know that anything is possible.



Francine Harms

Selected as employee of the year in the category of Transportation, Francine Harms has worked with the district for more than 10 years in the transportation department. She started as a trainee bus driver and has worked her way up through the ranks and is now a bus cover driver managing 58 bus routes. Her ability to manage bus routes, placement of students, particularly those with special needs, mentoring drivers, maintaining records, and general office management makes her a perfect fit in the transportation department.


Francine’s charismatic personality builds camaraderie, support, and success. She regularly mentors, trains new drivers, and provides ongoing support and recommendations to experienced drivers. She comes to know drivers so well that she can actually tailor bus routes to match drivers to students that they can best connect with. Francine also has participated in the Bus In The Classroom program which teaches students with special needs life-long skills in independent mobility. She is a positive change-agent, kind hearted, and a collaborative problem solver. Francine works to build great morale amongst those around her in the workplace in many ways. Her random notes of kindness to drivers and positive inspirational quotes around the office make a deeply positive impact.


Maria Gomez

Maria Gomez
Maria Gomez - Center

Maria Gomez has worked as a special education instructional assistant at Killybrooke Elementary for 12 years, and was selected as employee of the year in the category of Para-Educator and Instructional Assistance. She is extremely creative, animated, and models good behavior for her students. Maria takes the time to get to know her students personalities, abilities, and preferences and then uses that to encourage success. She goes above and beyond what’s expected in order to help students unlock their passion and meet their full potential.


Maria believes in helping students become more involved, build friendships, and helping general education students become more accepting of all students. One year at a talent show, Maria had a student that loved dancing so she worked with that student to choreograph a routine along with backup dancers. She took the extra time and effort to make sure the students were prepared and comfortable. This is an example of how Maria’s passion and care, benefits more than just the students that she works with directly. Due to her years of experience Maria also is able to offer tips and ideas to colleagues on how to encourage students.



Patricia Sanchez

Patricia Sanchez has worked for NMUSD for more than 25 years. She currently works at TeWinkle Intermediate School where she has served for the past 10 years. As employee of the year in the Child Nutrition category, Patricia has served in a variety of roles in school kitchens. She displays this invaluable experience each day as she assists in the preparation of more than 700 meals at her site.


Patricia has a genuine care for each student and impacts their lives in a positive way each school day. She regularly encourages students to eat healthy and trade cookies and chips for fruits and vegetables. She takes time to get to know students’ favorite meals so that when they are honored with an exemplary behavior award she is sure to reward those students with their favorite foods. She is extremely flexible and cooperative in the kitchen and steps into the leadership role easily when her supervisor is absent. Patricia is able to lead and direct the work of her colleagues in a respectful and collaborative manner. She consistently exudes happiness and helpfulness in ensuring that the school lunch program is a healthy, positive place for staff and students.


The Classified Employees of the Year will be recognized at a future NMUSD board meeting and will be considered countywide for the Orange County Classified School Employee of the Year.

Board Meeting Overview


Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.


  • Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
  • Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections: 
  • Public comment is provided so that members of the community can speak to the Board. If a speaker addresses an issue that is not on the agenda, the Board is restricted from responding to the speaker. If a speaker addresses an issue that is on the agenda, the Board may respond when the agenda item is scheduled to be addressed in the agenda. The purpose of the open meeting law, commonly referred to as the Brown Act, guarantees that public organizations will only make decisions or address issues that have been publicly posted. Public comments on non-agenda items do not meet this threshold. 
  • Presentation is when an item is being presented to the Board or from the Board.  Examples include presentation of a check or proclamation to the Board, or the Board presenting a Distinguished Service Award to a staff member.
  • Report is a verbal communication from staff on a topic of interest to the Board.
  • Consent calendar items are routine items of business that occur on a regular basis. The board will approve the consent calendar in one vote, unless the board pulls it for discussion. Often, consent calendar items are related to contract renewals, construction change orders, purchase of previously approved instructional materials, supplies and routine approvals required by state law. 
  • Discussion/action calendar items are required to be publicly approved separately. Items in this category are new items that have not been previously approved, require a policy change, or are related to compensation changes for all employees.
