Missing Handbell

handbell

Unfortunately one of our Handbells from our grade 6 Handbell Choir has disappeared after the performance this afternoon – if anyone knows the whereabouts of it or has found it please bring it in to the school. It has a black plastic handle and is one of the smaller ones that is labeled ” A“. Mrs. Gottenbos needs to have it back for the Christmas Concert tonight.

Thank you

Kinsmen Hamper Deadline Extended

Drop Off Deadline Extended to Monday December 12!!

Again this year, our school is sponsoring families through the Kinsmen Club of Stony Plain Christmas Hamper program.  This is the 38th year that the Hamper Program has helped those that are less fortunate in Stony Plain and Parkland County. Last year close to 450 families (over 1500 people) were supplied with food, toys and gift cards for much needed necessities. Each grade level in the school has been assigned a family. It is our hope that we will be able to make Christmas a happier time for these families through our community’s generosity. Suggested items to donate are non-perishable food items, such as canned goods, pasta, hot chocolate or hot cider mix, etc. or small gift items like children’s books or stuffed animals. Items donated should be new and unwrapped and need to be in to the school before Monday, December 12th.

Thank you for your part in making Christmas brighter for these families!2016-kinsmen-hampers

Christmas Concerts

ReindeerChristmas is coming quickly and we are excited to announce that we will once again be able to showcase the musical skill and talent of Muir Lake students through a grade 1-3 concert and a grade 4-6 concert. This is a great opportunity for students to refine and build their skills to a heightened level. There is a sense of pride and accomplishment that accompanies participation in a performance such as this. As a school, we join the parents and community in celebrating this time of year through music. We look forward to every child participating in their respective performances. The evening performances begin at 7:00 pm, but we ask that the children be in their classrooms by 6:30 pm.

Please mark the following dates on your calendars and plan to attend along with your child(ren).

Tuesday, Dec. 1, 1:00 pm             Dress Rehearsal, Grade 1-3
Tuesday, Dec. 1, 7:00 pm             Grade 1-3 Concert (ticket required)
Thursday, Dec. 3, 1:00 pm            Dress Rehearsal, Grade 4-6
Thursday, Dec. 3, 7:00 pm            Grade 4-6 Concert (ticket required)

To accommodate the large number of vehicles and attendees, we will continue to offer dress rehearsals at 1:00 pm on the day of the evening concert. Dress Rehearsals are a full run through of the program and do not require a ticket. Please remember however, that your child will still need to attend the evening performance. Those attending the evening performance will need to have a ticket. Four tickets for each family for each performance that their children are to attend were sent home last week, if families do not need all four tickets, we ask that you return the extras to the office. These will then be available to others upon request.

Thank you for your support and planning to accommodate these performances.
