We will be dying the t-shirts in Mrs. Arnold’s room. Each white cotton t-shirt costs $10 and all money raised will go to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. Last year we raised about $1000, so this year we aim to exceed that amount. Don’t forget to bring in your money by March 2!
Just a reminder that the Formal Day dinner and dance is coming up on Tuesday, February 14th for grades 7-9. We will be serving lunch and we would like to provide the day’s menu. For beverages, there is a choice of iced tea and flavored water. We will be providing salad, buns and butter for the appetizer. For the main course, sweet and sour meatballs will be served with rice on the side. Pumpkin cake will be the finishing meal. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
Memorial Composite High School will be hosting an evening event for “First-Time Parents” on Tuesday, February 28 at 7:00pm. This evening is meant for parents seeing their first child through high school. This will provide an opportunity for parents to become familiar with the school and to meet the school administration and counsellors. Students do not need attend the First-Time Parents meeting.
The “First Choice Open House” evening will be held at Memorial Composite High School on Thursday, March 2 starting at 6:00pm. Open House will start with a welcoming address in the large gym. All grade 9 students are encouraged to attend the Open House evening together with their parents in order to make their final course selections for grade 10.
Leadership option is making a slight change to our smoothie sales. We are now selling juice and breakfast foods every Friday at short recess. We will not be selling smoothies, every Friday, but rather, the last Friday of the month. We are also trying something new next week! If you would like an energy boost, you can get a shot of Kale in your smoothie! The perfect way to get through the last day of the week!!!
It’s that time of the year! Muir Lake Formal Day will be held on Tuesday February 14th from 11:45-2:35. There will be a formal dinner and dance as part of the celebrations.
Our theme this year is “Starry Night”, and we encourage all students in grades 7-9 to attend in their semi formal attire (although this is not mandatory). There is no cost to attend.
See you there!

Dear Parents/ Guardians,
This year, Muir Lake School is offering optional French as a Second Language for grade 7-9 students. This is an all year class that does not interfere with CTF option time. French will be offered every day after reading time for a 30 minute time interval. Grade 7-8 students will be taught by Miss St. Amand and grade 9 students will be taught by Mrs. Arnold.
We strongly encourage our students to get involved and participate in a second language program. It offers many benefits for their future and will provide the opportunity for interesting and exciting field trips this year. Field trips will include going to The Creperie and even traveling for a week to Ontario and Quebec!
Please sign up by printing this blog post and returning it to Miss St. Amand or Mrs. Arnold by Tuesday September 6th, 2016. A copy of this letter has also gone home with students.
We are looking forward to an exciting year of French language learning!
Mary St. Amand and Kelly Arnold
