Annual Spell A Thon

Our Muir Lake School Community Foundation has kicked off the annual school Spell-A-Thon. All spell-a-thon money raised this year will be put toward sports programming, arts and culture, literacy, numeracy, science and technology.

Each student from kindergarten to grade 6 will be bringing home a list of words, chosen by their teacher, and a pledge form. They will then practice their word list and go out and collect pledges from family and friends for the spell-a-thon. They may collect money for each word that they spell correctly or may collect a flat amount. The information letter, word lists & pledge form is also available by clicking HERE.

Tests will be administered by the teachers the week of April 30th to May 4th and pledge forms and money will then be collected by the students and are due in to the office by May 14th. The final totals and all grand prize winners will be announced and handed out at an assembly. Other prizes will be distributed to students in their classrooms.

We are excited to change to format for the prizes this year. The more money you raise the more prizes you will collect.

  • If the student raises $ 1 to $19.99 the student will receive Prize A.
  • If the student raises $20 to $49.99 the student will receive Prize A + Prize B
  • If the student raises $50 to $99.99 the student will receive Prize A. + Prize B + Prize C
  • If the student raises $100 and over the student will receive Prize A. + Prize B + Prize C + Prize D

This year the prize levels will be as follows:

  • Level 1 Prize (A): $1 – $19.99 raised will earn PRIZE!
  • Level 2 Prize (B) $20-$49.99 raised will earn a ball!
  • Level 3 Prize (C) $50-$99.99 raised will earn your choice of Beanie Boo or Lego set
  • Level 4 Prize (D) $100 and over raised will earn a child’s movie pass!

Top prizes include 3 family adventures!

The top fundraiser for the school will win one of these prizes.

In addition, there will be 2 draws for the remaining students who have raised more than $100; 1 for Kindergarten to Grade 3 students and 1 for grade 4-6 students

  • Every student who raises $100-$150 will receive one entry into the draw
  • Every student who raises $151-$200 will receive two entries into the draw
  • Every student who raises over $200 will receive three entries into the draw

***Top fundraiser is not eligible to enter the draw for the second top prize****

The top 2 fundraising classes will receive a treat for the class.

Strong Families: Marijuana Presentation

Parkland School Division is proud to partner with Alberta Health Services and the RCMP to present another FREE information session for caregivers.

Our second April session will help parents learn more about the effects marijuana has on the brain, discover teen trends regarding marijuana use and gain a better understanding of the new federal legislation that will legalize, regulate and restrict access to marijuana.

This session will follow a slightly different format than that of previous Strong Families events, and will take place at Spruce Grove Composite High School. Please make your own arrangements for supper and childcare. Though this session is geared towards adults, teens are welcome to attend with their parents or guardians.

Strong Families Series – Marijuana 101

Date: Thursday, April 19
Time: 6-7:30pm
Location: Spruce Grove Composite High School (1000 Calahoo Road, Spruce Grove)

Marijuana, used legally or not, can have a significant impact on the lives of teenagers. The ever-evolving landscape of marijuana use can be difficult for parents to navigate, as much has changed since the 1960s.

This session will provide parents with balanced information on marijuana and its effects, including the impact this drug can have on the developing adolescent brain. Learn how to start an open discussion on this subject with your teen and support them in making informed decisions about substance use. Leave with a better understanding of how to help your teen build resiliency, and how to access appropriate resources if you need them.

Join us for an in-depth discussion of these topics and more.

Please register early to reserve your spot.

Humboldt Broncos

Jersey Day – We are hosting Jersey Day on Thursday, April 12th to show support for the Humboldt Broncos team and the tragic accident that occurred this past weekend. There are many connections between our community and this team and it will hit close to home for many of our students and staff. Students, staff and community are asked to wear a Jersey on April 12th to show support for the city of Humboldt.  This is an opportunity for us to show support for the team and community as they move forward with the healing process. Here is a news article from Global News with more information about this initiative: https://globalnews.ca/news/4130525/humboldt-broncos-crash-hockey-jersey-day/

In honour of the young men of the Humboldt Broncos that lost their lives this past weekend our students have asked if we can help with the GoFundMe Page.  So, to help show our support in this tragic time, we will be hosting a Tooni-Drive through the next week or so. Please feel free to send in your cash donations to the school and mark them “Humboldt Broncos”. We will insure that it gets to the appropriate location; OR simply click on this link https://ca.gofundme.com/funds-for-humboldt-broncos to make your own donation.

Thank you for your support of our Hockey Community.
