Remembrance Day Service

Remembance DayOur Remembrance Day Service will be held on Tuesday November 10th at 10:30 a.m. Poppies will be distributed to all students on the above date and donations will be accepted at this time.

Every year, we have an assembly with all the students and try to explain to them the meaning of Remembrance Day through poems, filmstrips, readings, music, and song. Also we try to remind them that war takes its toll on both sides and that one side’s sense of pain and loss is no less than another’s.

Many of you have had friends or relatives who served their country in wartime. We would like to remember these people by having your child pin a poppy on our cross.  At the time that your child is doing this, we would like to mention the name of the person being remembered along with a little background information. For your convenience, you may go online to http://bit.ly/RDayTribute to fill in this information electronically or you can fill in this form and have your child return it to the school office by Friday, November 6, 2015.

And of course, as always, parents & family are more than welcome to attend our Remembrance Day Service.

November School Council Meeting

Despite Mother Nature’s best efforts to snow us out last night we had a great school council meeting. Among other things, we discussed Muir Lake Foundation report, Community League activities, fundraising, Board highlights, and our Muir Lake School AERR Report and Education Plan. Mrs. Matsuba also attended and gave a report on our student WE Day experience, as well as some of the future plans our students who are on the WE Care team have to make our school and world a better place. Thanks to all who braved the snow to be there.

We invite you to attend the next School Council meeting on December 9. There will be opportunity for some socializing over Christmas baking and coffee. Mrs. Paulson, the School Council Chairperson, will also be having a draw for a door prize for those in attendance. After the meeting we are hosting a parent workshop called Twitter for Parents: Engaged In Education for those who are interested in learning to tweet, as well as how and why social media is utilized in education. Feel free to bring some delicious Christmas baking and hope to see you there!
