It’s that time of the year! Muir Lake Formal Day will be held on Tuesday February 14th from 11:45-2:35. There will be a formal dinner and dance as part of the celebrations.
Our theme this year is “Starry Night”, and we encourage all students in grades 7-9 to attend in their semi formal attire (although this is not mandatory). There is no cost to attend.
See you there!
For parents of students participating in the Rabbit Hill trips, ski and snowboard equipment can be dropped off on the day of the trip from 7:30am-8:00pm at Muir Lake Hall. A parent volunteer will be at the hall to receive the equipment and store it at the hall for the duration of the school day. After school, students can retrieve it from the hall to load onto the bus.
*Important* Any students that are not able to attend the trip that day due to illness, alternate plans etc, please email or text Jana Williams. Also, if you have made plans for your child not to ride on the bus home, we request that you advise Jana Williams in writing before 6pm as we need to account for all students before leaving the hill. This information is then consolidated and passed on to the on site student coordinator parent.
A huge thank you to all of the parent volunteers, they ensured the safety of all students and a great time was had by all!

Happy Winter Everyone!
Our Handbell has been located! Thank you!
Unfortunately one of our Handbells from our grade 6 Handbell Choir has disappeared after the performance this afternoon – if anyone knows the whereabouts of it or has found it please bring it in to the school. It has a black plastic handle and is one of the smaller ones that is labeled ” Ab “. Mrs. Gottenbos needs to have it back for the Christmas Concert tonight.
Mindful Living Magazine has approached MLS and offered an exciting opportunity for some artists within our school. They have requested a selection of students’ art that may be selected to be used in their magazine over the next few months. Students’ names will not appear on the art and pictures will be randomly selected by the magazine. Currently, there are several beautiful snowmen and winter pictures around the school and we will just send a small selection to the magazine to choose from.
Mindful Living is a free publication that is available around Parkland County that focuses on mindful, health living.
If you have any objections of us possibly sending your child’s art to the magazine, please let us know by Friday, December 18 by either calling the school at 780-963-3535 or email us at email@example.com. This opportunity may extend throughout the year to include artwork of healthy living etc.
