Whats Happening

Photo Retakes
The Lifetouch photographer will be here on Thursday November 19th to take Photo Retakes. Unlike past years, the photographer will ONLY be here on the one day to do retakes, not two days. The Monday/Wednesday kindergarten students are welcome to drop in to the Muir Lake Hall anytime from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. to have their photo re-done. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.

Ward Restructure
In 2013, Parkland School Division’s Trustees identified concerns with the current electoral wards. Specifically, it was felt that they no longer reflected the democratic principle of representation by population.

CAT4 Assessments
During the next two weeks, our grades 2 and 4 to 9 students will be participating in the Canadian Achievement Tests (CAT-4). These assessments, based on Canadian curriculum, will assess each student’s basic skill level in reading, language, spelling and mathematics. Parents and teachers will receive a printed report. It is anticipated that the results will give our school information on achievement levels and will help to set direction for future learning needs. Please contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. Ferguson if you have any questions or concerns. For more information on these assessments you can visit their website at http://www.canadiantestcentre.com/CAT4/CAT4-Home.php

Recent Highlights

It has been an exciting month leading into Spring Break with lots happening here at Muir Lake School. We were visited by the Trustees, Superintendent Tim Monds, and the Parkland Senior Executive team to share in some wonderful learning time. We launched our first Leader In Me assembly where we brought the whole school together to celebrate and promote leadership within our school… and of course our classrooms have been as busy as ever. The grade 2 classes had a great day of learning as they celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  We are excited to highlight and share these things heading into Spring Break and look forward to the return of our students after the holiday. We hope that you have a great break!

We had a great time on March 5, as our Trustees and our Senior Executive Leadership visited our school.
