Space Day – Grades K-5

The early years classes will once again be involved in a theme day this month. You may remember our Fairy Tale Day last year or Dr. Seuss day the year before that. This year our theme will be “Space”, as in outer space; rockets, planets, stars astronauts etc. You get the picture! This will be happening on the morning of Thursday, March 19. All students in grades K-5 will be broken up into multi-age groupings. They will then rotate through 5 different activities in 5 different classes.
We are looking to decorate our hallways to enhance the “Space” experience. Any parents who would like to help out can contact Mrs. Matsuba(smatsuba@psd70.ab.ca) or come to the school on Wednesday, March 18 (at 3:45). We will be here to “Space Up” our space.
We are also looking for a couple of large boxes or large pieces of flat cardboard that could be made into a rocket. Large fridge or furniture boxes would be great. Again, contact Mrs. Matsuba if you can help out.
Students who wish may come to school in theme related apparel or decorations.

Movie Night @ MLS

Families are invited to attend Movie Night at Muir Lake School

Movie Night

 

This event is being planned by the Muir Lake We Care Team. The We Care team is a group of students in grades 6-9. These students attended an event in last October called We Day. They have been involved in a few fundraising and awareness raising events over the last few years, such as; Hunger Lunch, Toonies for Tanzania, Book Sale, and We Are Silent.

MLS Movie night is a free event for children and their families up to grade 6. There will be no admission charged but families may bring a Food Bank donation if they choose(Food will be taken to the Parkland Food Bank). A concession will be available. Funds raised at the concession will be sent to Free the Children. Free the Children is a Canadian Charity run by Craig and Marc Kielburger(both are Order of Canada Recipients). For each 50 dollars raised a goat will be bought for a family in need overseas.

Children must be accompanied by an adult to attend. Families are encouraged to bring a blanket to sit on and may come in pajamas if they choose. We hope to see you there.
