MLCS Foundation AGM

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

In 2000, the Muir Lake Community School Foundation (MLCSF) was formed and since then have had a great impact on Muir Lake School and the community. The Foundation was originally set up to oversee the construction of our playground and the running track. They continue to oversee the fundraising for the school for the MANY projects that are required and the many opportunities that are available to us as a school.

The Foundation is currently looking for volunteers to be involved and are holding their Annual General Meeting and elections on Thursday May 23rd at 7:00 pm in the library. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

If you or someone that you know is interested in helping out with the Foundation or have any questions please contact Maureena at muirlakefoundation@gmail.com.

Thank you.

Annual Spell A Thon

Our Muir Lake School Community Foundation is hosting the annual school spell-a-thon to raise funds for sports programming, arts and culture, literacy, numeracy, science and technology.

Each student should have brought home a Spell-A-Thon package which includes the list of words, chosen by their teacher, and a pledge form. Each student will then practice their word list and go out and collect pledges for the spell-a-thon. They may collect money for each word that they spell correctly or may collect a flat amount. For example, a person might pledge 25 cents per correct word spelled or they might choose a flat amount like $10.00.

We encourage students to limit their sponsors to family, friends, neighbors, and those known to their family.

The time-line is as follows:

April 15th        Student Spell-a-thon packages given out – students can begin gathering pledges

April 23 – 26   Spelling tests given – teachers choose date & time to administer the tests to their   classes, mark the tests

April 29           Tests will be handed back to the students to collect money.

May 6              Money and pledge forms due – money will be counted and prizes tabulated.

The final total and all grand prize winners will be announced and prizes will be distributed to students.

We are excited to change to format for the prizes this year. The more money you raise the more prizes you will collect.

  • If the student raises $ 1 to $19.99 the student will receive Prize A
  • If the student raises $20 to $49.99 the student will receive Prize A + Prize B
  • If the student raises $50 to $99.99 the student will receive Prize A + Prize B + Prize C
  • If the student raises $100 and over the student will receive Prize A + Prize B + Prize C + Prize D

This year the prize levels will be as follows:

  • Level 1 Prize (A) $1 – $19.99 raised will earn a PRIZE
  • Level 2 Prize (B) $20 – $49.99 raised will earn a ball
  • Level 3 Prize (C) $50 – $99.99 raised will earn your choice of Beanie Boo or Lego set
  • Level 4 Prize (D) $100 and over raised will earn a child’s movie pass

Top prizes include 3 family adventures!

The top fundraiser for the school will win one of these prizes.

In addition, there will be 2 draws for the remaining students who have raised more than $100; 1 for Kindergarten to Grade 2 students and 1 for grade 3-6 students

  • Every student who raises $100-$150 will receive one entry into the draw
  • Every student who raises $151-$200 will receive two entries into the draw
  • Every student who raises over $200 will receive three entries into the draw

***Top fundraiser is not eligible to enter the draw for the second top prize****

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
