Casino Volunteer Needed!!

The Muir Lake Community School Foundation is a group of MLS parent volunteers that was formed a number of years ago.  Their primary focus is to Re-Develop the school grounds – some of this has included but certainly limited to our amazing playground and the rubber-surface running track. However . . . it does not stop there . . . More help is needed; both in volunteering as part of the Foundation AND in their fundraising endeavours.

Currently, the Foundation is scheduled to supply workers for a Casino on October 24th & 25th at Apex Casino in St. Albert. One more worker is required for Thurs evening 6:45 pm – 2:00 am. Remember Friday is a PD Day – so you will not need to be up early to get the kids to school.   🙂   Please call  Joanne Trochymchuk at 780 909 2035 or email tchukhomes@gmail.com if you are able to help out.

We Day

In 1996 a 12 year old boy from Thornhills, Ontario began a charitable organization that was focused on bringing awareness to and help to children around the world who were being used as child labourers. Since then Craig Kielburger and his brother Marc have been working through that organization, “Free the Children”, to provide education, health care, alternative income, and clean water to children around the world.
Free The Children was founded on the understanding that by awakening the spirit of activism in young people, anything is possible – injustices can be stopped, our local and global communities can be transformed for the better, and hope for the future can be sustained.
Based on the belief that young people can create change, the We Day movement was born. They now host the We Day event in major cities across Canada. We Day brings youth together to celebrate the positive actions they are taking and to build the momentum of the movement of young people making a difference in their communities and around the world. Through We Day, youth learn that it is cool to care. We Day has become the movement of our time, inspiring thousands of youth and building a community of young people dedicated to social change.

Tonight 20 students will travel to Calgary to participate in Alberta’s second We Day Event. So Excited.
