Halloween Costume Day- Friday, October 24th

Due to the Halloween Dance on Friday, October 24 from 3:30 to 5:00, Mira Loma Middle School will have our costume day on Friday the 24th. Friday, October 31st we will participate in a “PINK OUT” Day for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here are our guidelines for costumes at school:

  • Dress Code is in full effect
  • No masks
  • Basic face paint and colored hair (student needs to be recognized)
  • No weapons (rubber or otherwise)
  • No “Silly Spray” or shaving cream.
  • Face paint / hair spray need to be done at home.
  • Shoes are required


The Mira Loma Middle School Library will be open on Monday through Thursday after school from 3:30 to 4:20 and on Thursday mornings from 9:00 to 10:30 as a quiet study hall.  The library will be staffed by our teachers.  Students must work quietly and independently.  They may request help in any subject they need assistance with. The computers in the library will be available for research and typing papers or completing projects.

Students that are disruptive will be asked to leave the library and may lose this privilege for the remainder of the semester.

Camcorders Needed… (a few anyway)


Do you have an old camcorder collecting dust at home?  Would you consider donating it to Mira Loma Middle School?

The Video Production Class is looking for one or two of a few specific models of older Canon camcorders that can provide Component (Green, Blue, Red) output.  These are highly compatible with the new equipment we are using for our daily broadcast, (and ironically, newer model camcorders are not compatible).

The model numbers below will work great.  Some of those were fairly cheap units, and others were highly expensive models.  Most of them use flash memory, but a few of them are the older-style DV-tape camcorders.  (We will be using these as studio cameras, so even if the tape drive doesn’t work well, it won’t matter).

We ONLY have a need for any of the following models.  Any other units will not be of use to us–please dispose of properly.  If you have an old unused one matching one of these model numbers and can donate, drop it off at the office.
