We got through quite a few of the class photos today, but unfortunately not all. We apologize for the inconvenience, but due to circumstances we had to get some of the classes done out of order. Therefore, the Tuesday/Thursday kindergarten and grades 3, 4, 5 Powell, 7, 8 and 9 students will all have their photos done tomorrow Tuesday September 16th.

So be ready on Tuesday to smile and “say cheese”!

School Council Needs YOU!

Read All About ItThe Muir Lake School Council meets the second teaching Monday of each month and ALL parents/guardians are encouraged to attend. Parents are also encouraged to be a part of school council and this can be done by taking on one of the various positions that are available each year. School Council elections take place at the September meeting (tonight) and the positions are as follows:

  • Chairperson: leads the meeting and oversees things with the council, prepares the agenda for the meetings, and acts as liaison between the school council and the school admin team
  • Vice-Chairperson: assists the chairperson and assumes the position of chairperson when the chairperson is unavailable
  • Secretary: takes minutes at the meetings, prepares them  and gets them to the school office electronically before the next meeting
  • Fundraising Co-Ordinator and committee members: the Fundraising Committee is a sub-committee of the school council that oversees the various fundraising requests and projects for the school with the help of the school admin team
  • Grade Reps: each grade has a parent rep that acts as a liaison between the council and the grade-level parents and report on the things happening in the classes, ie. celebrations, projects, etc.

The great thing about our School Council is that we have an amazing group of parents here at Muir Lake School and we are very proud of our volunteers that are always willing to lend a hand. Thank you to our present council members for another great year and we are looking forward to working with the new council.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office at 780-963-3535.

See you tonight!

A Hiking We Will Go!

Our grade 7-9 students braved the wintry weather to get to the top of Jasper’s Sulphur Mountain.  A trek that was then rewarded by a nice dip in Miette Hotsprings!  The students were excellent leaders as they demonstrated what we believe here at Muir Lake School.  

  1. Excellence - The hike up past the “Big Rock” is difficult in good weather, however our students braved the conditions and made it anyway.  

  2. Respect & Integrity- As we headed back down the mountain, our students respected the environment and picked up stray pieces of garbage as well.  (garbage not left by us).  As well, each of the 3 busses were left in perfect condition upon rreturningto the school. The students were sure to thank the bus drivers and supervisors as well.  We are proud of the leadership shown by this group of students!

  3. Community – It wasn’t an easy hike up or down this year.  Students who were having a difficult time down the mountain were given assistance and encouragement from their peers.  As a result, all got down safely:).

Student MCs – Parker & Hannah and our Student Tech Team kept the excitement and energy high throughout the assembly.

Several students shared their Class Mission Statements as a way to showcase leadership in our school.  Noah in 2 Matsuba talked about how their class will focus on …“being leaders by being nice, friendly and caring … we will do our best to use the 7 habits …”

Throughout the year, we will have the pleasure of hearing all class mission statements in our various assemblies, and we are very excited for this opportunity!
