1-5 Fun Day

Sending a huge thank you to all who helped to make our Fun Day such a huge success. We had parents working for hours the day before preparing materials, parents that came in at 7:30 to help set up, parents who ran stations and were group leaders in the hot sun all day, teenage volunteers who donated their time, ladies in the kitchen making lunch for everyone, and of course all the donations we received that made it all possible. I and all of the staff say thanks for making the day possible for our students.

As a community, we have worked hard to advance initiatives within the school that support the development of 21st century literacy skills within our students. I am truly looking forward to continuing as a member of this great team, providing support in any way I can. Muir Lake School truly feels like home to me and now my kids as well.

Innovation Week Kick-Off

To kick-start Innovation Week this morning, all of our students gathered for a presentation by Mrs. Badry about the theme of the week: Entrepreneurial Spirit.

Entrepreneurial Spirit: who creates opportunities and achieves goals through hard work, perseverance and discipline; who  strives for excellence and earns success; who explores ideas and challenges the status quo; who is competitive, adaptable and resilient; and who has the confidence to take risks and make bold decisions in the face of adversity.

The overall message of the assembly to our students was “you can make a difference”. Through their ideas, creativity, and innovation they can make an impact in the world.

To help us deliver this message and inspire our students we showed this video about Hot Sauce 4 Good during the introductory planning stage of the process. The video beautifully illustrates how somebody’s passion and innovation can make an impact in the world.

As we started receiving students proposals for Innovation Week, it was evident that our students had been inspired. This morning in the kick-off assembly we shared this message from Bob Ferretti, the founder of Hot Sauce 4 Good. Continue reading

We are still in need of piñatas, wrapped candy for the piñatas, large pairs of cowboy boots and horseshoes sets (including the posts). The boots and horseshoe sets will be returned after Fun Day. Big thanks to all of our families.
