We are so excited to be opening up our Collaboration Center to our grades 1-5 students as well as our grades 6-9 students at lunch recess.  On Monday, Wednesday & Friday, the grade 9’s will work with groups of students as they participate in Lego, Rainbow Loom, Board Games or Reading activities.

The classroom teachers have been given their class’ schedule and a schedule has also been posted.  As well, we will update our MLS Weekly Activities page on the school blog to help you know when it is your child’s day in the Collaboration Center.

It is important to note that students will have the option to attend or not, they can still go out and play on their day if they would be prefer.

*If your child wants to Rainbow Loom, they will need to bring their own Loom and elastics.  We will provide, Lego, Books and Board Games for the students.

This is exciting for us at Muir Lake School, as it is another fantastic opportunity to build community and leadership throughout our K-9 School!

Monday will be our first day, and Grade 1’s will be welcome to participate in these activities in the Collaboration Center.

Please refer to our MLS Weekly Events page or the Calendar page for other dates.

Operation Christmas Child

Although all the official shoe boxes have gone, there are still plenty of pamphlets with the information you need to pack a box from home. If you have some official boxes at home that aren’t being used please have your child bring them back so that someone else can make use of them.

Thank you for all your support.

We will start collecting the boxes November 3rd.

Operation Christmas Child

We are rapidly running out of shoe boxes. Please do not feel disheartened if you don’t manage to get hold of one of the official shoe boxes from the office: a shoe box from home will work just as well. Remember to use the label from the leaflet to label your box with either girl or boy.

Collection week begins on November3rd
