The Forest Behind Muir Lake School

The owners of the property behind Muir Lake School have asked us to pass this along to you as a precaution . . .

Below the snow is ice and water, while some of the water is shallow, some of it can be quite deep; especially near the Beaver Dam.  The beavers require the water to be at least 4 feet deep to adequately build a dam and survive under water through the winter, with our mild winter thus far the ice has not yet frozen thick enough for it to be safe to walk on. With this depth of water and thin ice a person could easily be in danger of falling through and drowning. They are requesting that no one walk on any of the flooded areas.  If you would like to observe the beavers, please do so from a safe distance. 

Although our students have been advised that they need permission to be on the property after school hours, we find it necessary to remind you of the dangers and ask that everyone be respectful of the Jespersen’s request to insure everyone’s safety. Technically if you are on the property after school hours you are trespassing. Should you wish to obtain permission to be on the property, please contact Derek Jespersen directly at 780-819-0164.

Thank you for your consideration and understanding while we continue to insure the safety of our families.

How Art Heals Grief

Strong Families Series: How Art Heals Grief

November 28, 2018 – Parkland School Division is proud to present another FREE information session for caregivers.

Our upcoming session will help parents better understand the complex physical and emotional effects felt by both children and adults who are grieving, and how expressing themselves through arts and crafts can aid them in the healing process.

Strong Families Series: How Art Heals Grief

Date: Tuesday, December 18, 2018
Time: 6-7:30pm
Location: Parkland School Division Centre For Education Board Room (4603 48th Street, Stony Plain)

Presented by Jean Tait, Professional Art Therapist (Member of Canadian & American Art Therapy Associations)

In this session, parents and guardians are invited to spend the evening with an accredited art therapist to gain an understanding of how adults and elementary school children experience and express grief, and the role arts and crafts can play in helping them improve their self-esteem and self-awareness, build on their emotional resilience and ease their distress, ultimately paving their way to a place of renewal and healing.

A light supper will be provided. Limited childcare is available.

Space is limited, so please register early to reserve your spot.
