2018 Kinsmen Christmas Hampers

Thank you for your continued support!!

Our school will be collecting donations once again and will be sponsoring families through the Kinsmen Club of Stony Plain Christmas Hamper program. For many years The Kinsmen Hamper Program has helped those that are less fortunate in Stony Plain and Parkland County. Last year over 500 families, that’s over 1700 residents, were supplied with food, toys and gift cards for much needed necessities. Each grade level in the school has been assigned a family (see below for details on the families). It is our hope that we will be able to make Christmas a happier time for these families through our community’s generosity. Please click THIS LINK to see a list of suggested items from the Kinsmen Club of Stony Plain. Items donated should NOT be wrapped and should be in to the school before Friday, December 7th.

We thank you for your continued support of our communities.

Remembrance Day at MLS

Our Remembrance Day Service will be held on Friday November 9th at 10:15 a.m. Poppies will be distributed to all students on the above date and donations will be accepted at that time.

Every year, we have an assembly with all the students and try to explain to them the meaning of Remembrance Day through poems, filmstrips, readings, music, and song. Also we try to remind them that war takes its toll on both sides and that one side’s sense of pain and loss is no less than another’s.

Many of you have had friends or relatives who served their country in wartime. We would like to remember these people by having your child pin a poppy on our cross.  At the time that your child is doing this, we would like to mention the name of the person being remembered along with a little background information. For your convenience you may go online to fill in this Tribute Form or go to http://bit.ly/PoppyTribute with the necessary information OR print this FORM and have your child return it to the school office by Monday, November 5, 2018.

And of course, as always, parents & family are more than welcome to attend our Remembrance Day Service.

  • Old pots, pans, baking sheets, muffin tins
  • Utensils such as spoons, ladles, flippers, etc.
  • Garden tools such as hand shovels & rakes, small pails, etc.
  • Wood biscuits/cookies (from tiny to large)
