activities on social media to be sure that they are not engaging

School Renaming Update: The Board-approved
process to rename Sutter Middle School and assign a new mascot
will be discussed at the board meeting on June 8th. The renaming
committee will propose the name they selected, Miwok Middle
School, for Sutter. This will then be an action item at the June
22nd board meeting. The expectation is that we begin the 23-24
academic year with the new name. There is a lot to be done in
order to update all facilities, uniforms, etc. that bear the
current school name. As a result, we should anticipate a
transition period before full implementation. Any questions can
be directed to Nathaniel Browning, Director of Capital Projects,
Facilities, and Resource Management for SCUSD,
