Grade 9 Farewell

From the Gr 9 Farewell Committee . . . . . . .

Hello Parents/Guardians of Grade 9 Students:

In an effort to reduce overall out-of-pocket expenses associated with the Grade 9 farewell, an organized bottle drive will be scheduled in early Spring 2015. However, there has been feedback shared at the parent/student meeting for the Grade 9 farewell, that schedules of both students and parents, may prevent involvement on the specific date selected in the Spring.

As such, those who would still like to take an active role in reducing the costs associated with helping our children celebrate – dance/ceremony and camp out – can simply do so by going to either the Spruce Grove or Stony Plain bottle depot and donating the funds.  An account has been set up with both depots — “Muir Lake School – Grade 9 Farewell”.

Cheers and may you all enjoy the New Year!

Student Leadership Appreciation

Today we had the opportunity to recognize the students who have volunteered their time consistently since October of this year as Crosswalk Leaders, Kindergarten Lunch Leaders, Playground Leaders and our Tech Team Leaders. At the start of each term, students have the opportunity to “apply” to one or more of these positions, and then it is up to them to show up on the appropriate day and time to do their job.
They are valued at our school and we sincerely appreciate them giving their time!

2nd Bus for Rabbit Hill Skiing Secured

skiingDuring the Christmas Break the Rabbit Hill Ski Program parent volunteer, Chelsey MacElheren, was able to secure a second bus to transport the students to and from Rabbit Hill on Friday evenings. This allows for approximately 60 more students to attend, opening up the program to all of the grade 4 to 9 students. The form is available by clicking HERE and also available from the school office. In a continued endeavor to remain “Green”, we will NOT be sending forms home with all of the students, if your child requires a form they will need to come to the office for one or print it off from this link. Forms are due in to the office by Wednesday January 7, 2015. If you require more information please contact Chelsey at 780-968-1526.

Thank you to Chelsey and the other parent volunteers for their continued efforts to make this program possible for our students.
