Cross Country Running Club
When and Where?
When Exactly? Races begin at 4 pm, starting with the youngest runners. Please arrive by 3:45 pm.
Parents of students in grades K-4 are required to accompany their child to their running location and they must stay and supervise their child in that location. This year, the cross country coaches are Mr.Opatril and Ms Garrison. Please find one of them as soon as you arrive at the race location. Your coaches will make sure you are signed in and have the correct name and race category label. Parents, you are welcome to leave after your child’s race, or feel free to stay and cheer on other Muir Lakers.
All registered Muir Lake Cross Country athletes need to attend all practices. Practices will be on Monday and Wednesday at lunch recess with Mr. Opatril and Ms Garrison.
Who? Any child from Grade K-9. Parents are responsible for all transportation.
What? Runners compete against children of the same gender and year of birth (eg. girls, 2005). The races are through trails or an established route through a schoolyard. It is considered to be an accomplishment just to finish the race; some medals and ribbons are given out to the fastest runners.
Cost? $5.00 for each race registered. Fees cover costs of medals, ribbons etc.
Parents are asked to fill out the registration form online and submit payment ONLINE by September 10, 2018 to register for each race that your child(ren) would like to participate in.
To register for Cross Country Running this year you will need to log on to your PowerSchool Parent Portal and fill in the form accordingly.
If you are registering multiple students, you will need to switch users by clicking into each child’s profile at the top of your screen to register each of them.
All students must have a permission form filled out in order to participate; please sign and return it to the school prior to the races.
For more information, please contact Ms. Garrison or Mr Opatril via email or at 780-963-3535.
The Muir Lake School Talent Show is coming up quick and we want everyone to be prepared.

We look forward to watching everyone show off their talent and we hope to see some parents come down and support the students!

Space is limited, so please get your completed form and payment in to the school office ASAP. Sorry, but this is not something that has been set up on the PowerSchool Parent Portal as it is being run by a group of volunteer parents and the payments go through the Muir Lake Community School Foundation (MLCSF).
