Muir Lake Musical Theatre CTF is putting on its own version of Cinderella!
Mrs. Gottenbos & Miss Remillard have been working with a fantastic group of grade 6-9’s getting ready for what may be our best play yet! There will be two nights of performances: Wednesday, March 15, and Thursday, March 16. Both performances will be at 7:00pm, with doors opening at 6:45. Tickets will be on sale at the school office starting Monday, Feb. 28. Tickets are $5.00 each.
Please note that this will be about a 45 minute performance and that actors will not be miked. For this reason we ask you not to buy tickets for young children who cannot sit quietly for this long. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Seating is limited. Get your tickets fast!

Just a reminder that the Formal Day dinner and dance is coming up on Tuesday, February 14th for grades 7-9. We will be serving lunch and we would like to provide the day’s menu.

Did you know that rafiki means “friend”? Well you can now buy some friendship bracelets at our school. The We Care team is selling rafiki bracelets to raise money for the Free the Children Foundation. The women who make these rafiki bracelets are the Kenyan Mamas, they do this to get money to support themselves and their families(sustainable income). 50% of the money is given to the Kenyan mamas who make them and their family, and the other 50% goes to Free the Children Foundation. Free the children then uses that portion of the funds to provide food, education, water, sustainable income projects and health care to children in many countries around the world. Each rafiki Bracelet will only cost 10$ and will be sold at the Muir Lake School Book Fair on February 6th to February 7th. The more bracelets sold, the more money is donated. These are truly cool bracelets.
MADE BY A MAMA
Using traditional art forms, each piece is handcrafted by a mama in Kenya who is empowered through earning a fair wage for her work.
Just a reminder that we have another session of skiing this Friday, February 3rd, no skiing next week and then our final session on Friday February 17th.
Please be aware that all students must be picked up at Muir Lake School by 9:00 pm. We suggest that parents arrive at the school a bit early should the buses arrive before 9:00. Last week the bus returned at 8:45.
Also a reminder to please email or text me should your child not be attending the ski trip or if you have made alternate plans and they will not be riding the bus home.
Information for parents:
As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping students for success.
The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments of student learning.
From January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.
- In January, parents of students in grades 4 & 7 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.
- In February, students in grades 4 & 7 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school. In addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.
Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving, so we encourage you to return your survey promptly.
Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2017, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.
