Off To Another Great Start!

We are extremely excited for this new school year as the leadership team at Muir Lake School. We look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with the students, staff and parents of the school community.

We anticipate this year to be an excellent year of continuing to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment in which students can grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
As your educational leaders at Muir Lake School our foundational “BIG ROCKS” or “core values” are:

  1. Excellence in Academics and Citizenship
  2. Respect
  3. Integrity
  4. Community

Our vision is that we will empower Muir Lake School to become more vibrant, strong, and successful as we celebrate the unique talents and abilities of all learners. Every child learns, every child succeeds.

A couple items to note at the beginning of this school year.

  1. In an effort to reduce our consumption of paper, we encourage our students and their families to view newsletters and calendars on our school website or here on our school blog. If you haven’t already signed up to receive email notifications when new information is posted to the blog we would encourage you to do so.
  2. We have created a Muir Lake School YouTube channel! We encourage you to view the photo slideshow (embedded above) that was shown to the students on the first school day during the assembly as a celebration of the leadership demonstrated last year and a challenge to continue to develop leadership this year. Subscribe and stay tuned for future videos!
  3. Our 1 to 1 technology initiative is moving forward with our learning communities 4 and 9 classes. This initiative is about increasing access to technology for our students to be used when it is the best learning tool available at anytime in the class. We are doing this by encouraging students to bring their own laptops to be used at school. You can read more information about this by clicking on the 1-to-1 Technology in the Classroom category on the sidebar of this blog. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the office or speak with your child’s teacher.

As your educational leaders, we look forward to collaborating with the staff and parents as we work together on critical thinking, leadership and ethical citizenship, inclusion, and technology integration. We are committed to building a strong partnership between home and school. Please feel free to contact us at the school by telephone 780.963.3535 or email: kstridegoudie@psd70.ab.ca and tmcnaughton@psd70.ab.ca.

We look forward to sharing more details with you at our Muir Lake School Council Meeting on Monday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m.

Volleyball Coaches Needed!

We are off to another great start to the year and are already excited about the fast approaching volleyball season! We are in need of some volunteers to coach or even just to help coach. This is a great way to get involved and help us to have another successful volleyball season for our athletes.

Coaches are needed for both the boys and girls and the Jr. Level (grades 6,7,8) and for the boys at the Sr. Level (grades 8 & 9).   Volunteer coaches would be assisted with a staff member as a liaison/supervisor.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact our office and let us know!
