Principal’s Community Update 1/6/2023

Zerihun Haileselassie was a cherished member of the Multilingual Department at John Muir. Sadly, he passed away on December 4, 2022, after a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer. He is remembered for his gentle demeanor, quiet laugh, and dedication to the John Muir community. His friendship will be treasured by all who knew him. Zerihun is survived by his wife and four children. Three of his children were John Muir students. Our love and prayers go out to his family.
