I-Week Success!

I am truly amazed at the creativity and perseverance shown by our students this week.  It has been an absolute pleasure watching them throughout the week, working together to solve their problems and really take control of their own learning.  Thank-you to all students involved, as well as to the staff, parents and community members who helped make this Innovation Week such a success!

Christmas Concerts a SUCCESS!

WOW!  Our students at Muir Lake impressed us all with their performances at both the grade 4-6 and k-3 concerts this past week.

With Rudolph, Mrs. Clause and Gilder competing in a round of Jeopardy, the rest of the grade 4-6 students performed a number of Christmas songs throughout the evening.

Our Grades k-3 students were as cute as can be as they performed their Christmas Carrols for us all to enjoy!  Both evenings were enjoyed by all!

A great big “Thank You” goes out to Mrs. Grant and Mrs. Gottenbos, as they are key to the success of Muir Lake School’s Christmas Concert!

Merry Christmas to all!

We Day

Last month 15, 6-9 students awoke at 4:00 am to be on the bus by 5:00 and traveling to Calgary. Students spent the day at the Saddledome experiencing We Day. We Day is an annual event that uses musical acts, celebrity speakers and other well known personalities from around Canada and the world to encourage young people to become passionate about making the world a better place. We were honoured to hear many people speak and share their stories. Some of these people included Marc and Craig Kielburger(Free the Children Creators and Order of Canada recipients), Dr. Dave Williams(Canadian astronaut, Steve Forbes(businessman), Silken Lauman(Canadian Olympic Athlete), Spencer West(Double amputee and motivational speaker, Mia Farrow(actress and activist) and many more. Students have now committed to organizing, planning and running fundraising activities and social justice projects in our school. Any other students, who are interested my also join our in-school We Care Team. They can join our team at any time by seeing Mrs. Matsuba. They will then earn their chance to attend We Day 2015.
