Rabbit Hill Ski Program – Limited Space

skiingThe Muir Lake School Parent Volunteer group is once again running the Rabbit Hill Ski Program.  This year the program is running with only 1 bus and therefore limited to approximately 60 grade 5 and 6 students only. Forms are available by clicking HERE and have also gone home with the grade 5 and 6 students only.  Forms are due back in to the school office with payment ASAP and are on a “first come, first served” basis. For more information you may contact Chelsey MacElheren at 780-968-1526 chelseylee@live.ca

Innovation Week

It’s time again for Innovation Week at Muir Lake School!

Last week, the students from grades 7-9 were given an introduction to our new Innovation Week theme – “Hacking Your Education”.  Inspired by the TedTalk given by then 13-year old Logan LaPlante about “Hackschooling”, we are giving students the opportunity to hack their school and decide WHAT they want to learn about and HOW they want to learn it.

Again, this opportunity is voluntary for students, although all 7-9 students have been involved in the planning part of the Inquiry Process. We truly believe in the great value and unbelievable learning that a project like this offers to all students, and greatly encourage participation in it. Students who choose not to participate in Innovation Week will be participating in teacher-directed learning for the week.
