Volunteers Needed

Wednesday, June 26th will be Muir Lake’s 2019 Fun Day! Fun Day celebrations will be from 11:55 am – 2:15 pm. The school will be providing a hotdog lunch. Please still pack your child a snack for the morning.

Students in kindergarten through grade 5 will move independently from station to station. Students in kindergarten through grade 2 will be encouraged to buddy up with a friend to go to stations. All stations will be outside, please come dressed and ready for any weather! Please send hats if it is sunny. We recommend applying sunscreen and bug spray before coming to school. If you send any, it must be lotion and not aerosol.

Students will be rotating around stations that teachers and parents have prepared. Students will have punch cards to show they have gone to stations. When their cards are full, they can turn them in to get a prize. Prize options are a freezie, bag of popcorn or a temporary glitter tattoo, based on how many stations they get to in the afternoon they may get some or all of these prizes.

To make this event a success and fun for all, we need your expertise! If you can volunteer, please complete our Google form (scan QR code or go to https://bit.ly/2HNJv5X) by Friday, June 14th.

Thank you in advance, without parent volunteers these fun school activities would not be possible!

PSD Try-Me Try-Athlon

Parkland School Division is proud to launch registration for the 5th Annual Try-Me Try-Athlon. Parkland School Division students ages 5-18 who love swimming, bicycling and running, and are willing to try something new – this is for you. Don’t delay signing up as this event fills up fast!

For further details and to register, please visit our Try-Me Try-Athlon page.

Date: Friday, June 7th
Time: 9:30am
Location: TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre, 221 Jennifer Heil Way, Spruce Grove, AB

The Try-Me Try-Athlon is a Kids of Steel (KOS) triathlon, which will be held on Friday, June 7 at the Tri-Leisure Centre in Spruce Grove. KOS Triathlons are designed to offer youth the opportunity to experience the sport of triathlon in a positive environment. The distances are much shorter than those in adult triathlons and change as participants mature.

This event is a district-wide celebration of physical literacy and movement in 2019 using these three skills: swimming, bicycling and running. All children ages 5 and up are welcome to register for this event with the support of their classroom or school-based teacher. The Try-Athlon will encourage students to train with their schools and at home in order to learn new physical skills and movements that will allow them to feel more competent and confident in multiple environments. All this for a small registration fee.

When Registering Your Child

Make sure you have:

  • Made arrangements with a classroom teacher to partake in the Try-Me Summer Try-Athlon including plans for missed assignments or work.
  • Notified the school office of the planned excused absence.

Registration Fees

All registration and fees will be handled in the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

Individual students may register to participate in all three legs of the race for $35 each.

Optional Choose a Race Leg – Students can register as part of a 3-person team. Each team member will complete one discipline of the race – either swimming, bicycling or running. Team members can register for the race for $15 each.

Please note: Even though a student may be signing up to participate in one sport of the Try-Athlon, a registrant who chooses the $15 individual entry must register as a member of a 3-person team.

If you’re in the neighbourhood during the race, please note that the southbound lanes of Jennifer Heil Way will be closed for the duration of the race (starting at 9:30am), and traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction.
