A bit about the MLCS Foundation

The Muir Lake School has provided our rural neighborhood with a community focus for over 30 years.  Our school building has been continually modernized and expanded to meet the increasing enrollment of the growing Community.

In 2000, the Muir Lake Community School Foundation (MLCSF) was formed and has since undertaken a needs assessment of the school children and local Community.  MLCSF developed a Master Plan that was broken down into phases and the following projects have been accomplished

  1. Junior playground to the northwest of the school
  2. South and west drainage
  3. Soccer pitch
  4. Track area
  5. Sliding hill

Since its inception the MLCSF has raised money via various fundraisers and matching government grants and with the continuing dedication of our volunteers and corporate donations we have been able to improve our school grounds to include a dynamic $125,000 playground area and a quarter of a million dollar rubberized running track, and soccer pitch.

We are proud to announce that the MLCS Foundation and the Muir Lake School Council have joined together to oversee the fundraising efforts of the school as a whole.

If you or someone that you know is interested in helping out or should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at 780-963-3535 OR e-mail muirlakefoundation@gmail.com

Each student from kindergarten to grade 6 will be bringing home a list of words, chosen by their teacher, and a pledge form. They will then practice their word list and go out and collect pledges from family and friends for the spell-a-thon. They may collect money for each word that they spell correctly or may collect a flat amount. The information letter, word lists & pledge form is also available by clicking HERE.

Tests will be administered by the teachers the week of April 30th to May 4th and pledge forms and money will then be collected by the students and are due in to the office by May 14th. The final totals and all grand prize winners will be announced and handed out at an assembly. Other prizes will be distributed to students in their classrooms.

Gr 5 Camp Fundraisers

With Spring just around the corner, now is a good time to plan your barbeque season!

The Muir Lake School Grade 5 classes have taken on the Calahoo Meats and Kernels Popcorn Fundraisers in hopes of raising enough money to go on their annual camping trip.

Kernels popcorn comes popped and is in bags the size of individual chip bags. They are popped and sealed the day before the bags are delivered to you. These healthy snacks are gluten-free, nut free and have a shelf life of 10 weeks!

We have two easy ways to complete your Calahoo Meats & Kernels Popcorn orders.  Click HERE for the information letter, product brochure as well as the Calahoo Meats and Kernels Popcorn order forms that you can share with your family and friends. These packages are also going home with the students.

Order forms along with payment will be accepted into the office until the end of the school day on Wednesday April 5th. We have also added these items to the online fundraising area at www.muirlakeschool.hotlunches.net.  Please click on the login tab and Muir Lake Fundraising will appear.

Late orders will not be accepted as this will delay the pick-up date. Payments can be made online through the Fundraising Site or by cash or cheque made payable to Muir Lake Community School Foundation (MLCSF).

The Kernels Popcorn orders can be picked up in the school kitchen on Thursday April 20th until 1:30 pm.

A pick-up date for the Calahoo Meats orders has been set for the afternoon of Wednesday April 26th from 1:30 to 4:00 at the Muir Lake School. You are responsible to pick up your total order from the school and distribute to your family and friends. It is important to pick up your orders at this time as unfortunately we do not have the freezer space to store the boxes for any length of time.

Thank you in advance for supporting Muir Lake School and helping make our grade 5 Camp Fundraiser a success! Should you have any questions about this fundraiser please contact Kimberly Tom @ 780-868-3411.
