4th Annual Try-Me Try-Athlon

Parkland School Division is proud to launch registration for the 4th Annual Try-Me Try-Athlon. Parkland School Division students ages 5-18 who love swimming, bicycling and running, and are willing to try something new – this is for you.

For further details and to register, please visit our Try-Me Try-Athlon page.

Date: Friday, June 8th
Time: 9:30am
Location: TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre, 221 Jennifer Heil Way, Spruce Grove, AB

The Try-Me Try-Athlon is a Kids of Steel (KOS) triathlon, which will be held on Friday, June 8 at the Tri-Leisure Centre in Spruce Grove. KOS Triathlons are designed to offer youth the opportunity to experience the sport of triathlon in a positive environment. The distances are much shorter than those in adult triathlons and change as participants mature.

This event is a district-wide celebration of physical literacy and movement in 2018 using these three skills: swimming, bicycling and running. All children ages 5 and up are welcome to register for this event with the support of their classroom or school-based teacher. The Try-Athlon will encourage students to train with their schools and at home in order to learn new physical skills and movements that will allow them to feel more competent and confident in multiple environments.

Gr 4 to 6 Track Meet

On Thursday, May 17 Muir Lake School will be holding our grade 4 to 6 Track Meet. It will start around 8:30 and end at 12:30. In case of a rain-out on May 17th, the meet will take part on Tuesday May 22nd.

We will be having an outdoor concession for the WHOLE school. Keep in mind that there is Edo Japan for the Fundraising lunch program that day if you have ordered it. We will need more parent volunteers  to do this and we would like the whole school to enjoy this treat. Junior high students will have access to the concession at lunch recess. Concession items include the following:

  • hot dog $2
  • drinks $1
  • chips $1
  • candy bag $1

Thank you to our parent volunteers for running the concession and a special thank you to the grade 4 to 6 staff for making this a fun day for our students.
