Learning Today… Leading Tomorrow

February 13-15th


Happy Valentine’s Day! We are not having a formal party or events for Valentine’s Day. Students are welcome to bring items to share at lunch time.  We do have a surprise planned for some important members of our school community.  I will let your student share that with you!

Wed Feb. 15th – All day trip to Telus World of Science.  We leave promptly at 8:45 and return for the end of the day.  Students need a bag lunch that is easy to manage – we do not have a lot of space to store things while on site.  We will wear indoor shoes, and take as little as possible with us.  Thank-you to the parents helping out with our exciting electrical and chemical activities!

Welcome Back!


Happy New Year! As we start the new year and look forward here are some important dates for the upcoming months:


  • In-house Electricity presentation: January 25th, 1-2pm
  • Grade 5 Camp Meeting – Thursday, January 26th, 2017 at 5:00 pm in the Library Learning Commons
  • Telus World of Science – Feb 15th, all day (no hot lunch) Electric car, and chemistry.
  • Swimming March 23 – Swimming at the Tri
  • Camp – Nakamun June 20-22nd


Grade 5 Camp Meeting – Please try to attend as we will look at whether parents would like Gr. 5 camp this year. Traditionally, grade fives at  Muir Lake School have gone to an outdoor camp but it is reviewed every year to ensure that this idea is supported by our parents and students.

This meeting will focus on:

  • Expectations & Learning Outcomes
  • Responsibilities
  • Time
  • Location
  • Cost  – $170.00 (tentative)
  • The possibility of fundraising for some of the camp costs.

We think Grade Five Camp is great experience for students and we look forward to our meeting with you.

Secret Santa’s have been chosen.  Gifts are to be secretly delivered by next Thursday, Dec. 22.

Wednesday Dec 7th, we are headed to Horizon Stage with the 4, 5 & 6s for the Christmas tale, ELF.  We leave at 9am and return at 11am.

Our final Play Parkland is this Friday Dec. 9th. We are skating and on the indoor field, please send skates and helmets, we will use our PE clothes for the field portion.  We leave at 11:25 and return at the end of the day.

We will likely have indoor recess this whole week if the wind chill keeps up over -24.  I am encouraging students to bring board games to foster our probability skills which is part of our current math unit.  Thinking warm thoughts, have a safe and cozy week!
