McDonald’s Receipt Fundraising Program

Did you know . . . Muir Lake School collects McDonald’s receipts from any one of the following locations: Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Westlock, Glastonbury or Lewis Estates?

McDonald’s will give us 10% of the total dollar value of the receipts collected up to $500.00 – what an easy fundraiser.

Simply send in your McDonald’s receipts to the school. Thank you 🙂

Also . . . we are no longer collecting Campbell’s Soup labels; unfortunately Campbell’s Soup has cancelled the program – thank you to everyone that has helped out with this in the past.

Social Media Awareness and Mental Health Parent Information Night

Social Media Awareness and Mental Health Parent Information Night – September 28th

On September 26th we will be welcoming Wade Sorochan to Muir Lake School where he will be presenting to our grade 6-9 students about the importance of maintaining a healthy balance between the real and digital worlds. Wade will share his story with students and will discuss some strategies that can be used to help address some of the negative feeling that people sometimes experience as a result of their time online. We have partnered with High Park School, Greystone Centennial Middle School, Woodhaven and Stony Plain Central to make these sessions available to our students and are hopeful that they have a positive impact on them. One of the things that is also clear in looking at research around resiliency and supporting students is the importance of having a strong connection with the adults in their lives. As a result, in addition to the student session that will be delivered on the 26th at Muir Lake, High Park School will also be hosting a parent information session on the evening of September 28th from 6:30-8:00 at Stony Plain Central School. To get an idea of numbers we are asking that parents register in order to confirm attendance and ensure that we have enough space. There will be no charge for this event. To learn more about Wade and the message he shares with students please visit his website at http://www.wadesorochan.com/.

Lunch Programs for 2017 2018

We are very fortunate to have two wonderful lunch programs in our school. 

Fundraising Lunches are things like Boston Pizza, Subway, Dairy Queen & Edo Japan.  

Our Hot Lunch program is run out of the school whereby volunteers come in and make our children nutritious lunches right here in our school kitchen – this is a tradition that has been going on for over 15 years. 

Lunches are ordered ONLINE through www.MuirLakeSchool.HotLunches.Net for a month at a time — and with that being said the due date for September ordering is this Thursday September 14th — so please get your orders in ASAP! No late orders will be accepted.

Please click on the Lunch Programs tab at the top of this Blog page to find more information about the programs.

As mentioned earlier, our lunch programs are run with volunteers, and MANY more volunteers are needed – even if you can only spare a couple of hours a week, it would be appreciated — and greatly needed in order to keep the program running. Please contact Dawn at at 780-910-4765 or dawnwilloughby123@gmail.com if you are able to help in any way.

Thank you!
