The Little Extra Goes A Long Way

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” 
― Jimmy Johnson 

I walked into the school this morning and was blown away with the makeover our early years hallway had received. I knew today was fairy tale day but was still not prepared, nor expecting to see such a transformation. It was like walking into a castle. After wandering around checking out all of the decorations and costumes, visiting the classrooms and seeing the excitement in our students, I came back to my office and started thinking (after getting a coffee of course). It truly is all of the extra that makes our school an extraordinary place. And sometimes I think it is important to recognize that and say thank-you.

Thank-you to the teachers and parents who were here until 9:30 pm last night decorating for Fairy Tale Day after student led conferences. Thank-you to the students, staff and volunteers for dressing up, all the planning and work that went into making today an amazing day for our students.

Are you ready to BBQ?

CalahooMeatsWith May long weekend just around the corner, now is a good time to plan your barbeque season! It’s also time for the Calahoo Meats fundraiser!

The Muir Lake School Student Tech Team has taken on the Calahoo Meat Fundraiser in hopes of raising enough money to bring in some much needed Audio/Video equipment for the school. The student tech team is involved in setting up all of the audio and video equipment for assemblies and concerts, as well as helping other students and staff with tech issues.

An order form is available by clicking HERE or go to http://bit.ly/CalahooMeatsOrder and the product brochure that you can share with your family and friends is available HERE or by going to http://bit.ly/CalahooMeatsBrochurePlease condense your family & friends’ orders on to one order form. Should you need extra order forms, they are also available at the Muir Lake School office. Order forms and payments are due back to Muir Lake School by Wednesday, April 23rd with cheques made payable to Parkland School Division No 70 (PSD #70). Late orders cannot be accepted as this delays the pick up date.

A pick up date has been set for the afternoon of Friday, May 9th 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 we do not have the freezer space to store the boxes for any length of time. Should you have any questions about this fundraiser please contact Myrna Sayers @ 780-963-0330. Thank you in advance for supporting Muir Lake School and helping to make this fundraiser a success!
