lifetouchSMILE! Portrait Day is Coming!

School photos will be taken at Muir Lake School on Wednesday, October 10th and Thursday October 11th. We will get through the Monday/Wednesday kindergarten and as many other classes as possible on Wednesday the 10th and then the Tuesday/Thursday Kindergarten class and the remainder of the students on Thursday.

VOLUNTEERS:  we are asking that all of our volunteers not only sign in at the office but that you also obtain a “VOLUNTEER” lanyard when you are in the building.  So please come in on Wednesday October 10th and have your photo taken while the photographers are here.


Critical Thinking – Grade 6 Language Arts

Investigating a Picture

Becoming quite skilled at using clues to create conclusions, the grade sixes then started their investigations of pictures (illustrations and photographs).  The critical challenges have the students using the conclusions they draw from the clues in the photos to estimate the time the pictures depict (time of day, day of the week, month, year), as well as make judgments about what happened just before the picture was taken.  The final step will be to use the same tools to help create a thoughtful story based around the picture.
