We have worked together through a team-oriented, collaborative approach to fulfill Parkland’s mission of preparing, engaging and inspiring our students to be their best in a quickly changing global community. At Muir Lake School … the world has opened up … and I leave you with this challenge … Continue on your innovative learning journey of creating opportunities for our 21 Century digital learners with passion, perseverance and resiliency. Thank you!

Tomorrow is Fun Day!! Yeah!! Big thanks in advance to all of our volunteers who are coming out tomorrow. It couldn’t happen without you.
Please make sure that your child has sunscreen on prior to coming to school. If they bring their sunscreen with them teachers and volunteers will remind them to reapply at lunch time. Please send a water bottle as well. We will have cold water outside so students can refill their bottles when needed. A sun hat and light clothes are also necessary as the temperature is supposed to reach 27 tomorrow.

CTF Week is happening at Muir Lake School next week!
CTF (Career & Technology Foundations) supports flexible, interdisciplinary learning where students explore interests and passions while making personal connections to career possibilities and technologies associated with various Career and Technology Studies (CTS) occupational areas. CTF is designed to be a unique curriculum that allows students to learn about occupational areas. Students will develop skills in the areas of business, communication, human services, resources, and technology while working through engaging challenges.
Our students have spent time prior to CTF Week brainstorming, peer interviewing, planning and developing their own individual or group challenges to work through during CTF Week.
This is an exciting introduction to the CTF Curriculum that will be in place next year throughout Alberta. We are really looking forward to this engaging week of student centered learning that will be occurring.
Please join us on Friday, June 26th from 10:00am – 11:00am as the students showcase their learning.
