Jumpstart Funding for Play Parkland

Muir Lake School will participate in the PLAY Parkland for this school year.  This exciting adventure takes place at the Trans Alta Tri Leisure Centre (TLC) 8 times during the semester on Tuesdays.  The students will experience; aquatics, dry land sports, skating lessons and gymnastics.

We are delighted to share with you that we’ve struck a partnership with the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program to enhance the physical literacy and sports development of our students.

Jumpstart states that, “Participating in sport helps kids develop physical and social skills.  It helps build self-esteem. By helping kids get into the game, we’re equipping them with determination. And we’re giving them confidence that will extend beyond practices and games. No kid should be left on the sidelines but in Canada 1 in 3 families cannot afford to enroll their kids in organized sports. That’s almost 750,000 kids every year who want to play, but just can’t.”

Through our partnership, we will be able to support additional school-based programming and equipment that will help all students participate in a wide variety of physical activities. We are thankful to Canadian Tire for their important work in helping support all children and youth in our community so that everyone can live a healthy, active life.

At this time, the program will include all of our Muir Lake students from grades 3 to 6. The total cost for this program is $40 per child and includes transportation to and from the Tri/school.

Please download & complete this form then return it to the school office by September 25, 2018 regardless of whether you want assistance or not.

We are very excited for this opportunity with JumpStart. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. Garley in the office.
