Gr 9 Farewell Update

Grade 9 Farewell
Friday, June 19th @ 7 pm
Ceremony in the Muir Lake School Gym
Dance to Follow at the ML Hall

Due to scheduling issues the Grade 9 Farewell Fundraiser bottle drive has been changed to May 30th from 9am to 12pm.

Participation for the bottle drive is encouraged as this will be how we reduce the out of pocket expenses for each student.

Tara would like to receive an email from everyone who will be participating so she can have a game plan for the day. Parent volunteers are required as well for driving , sorting and counting.

Please contact Tara to advise her of your child’s participation and if you are able to help out in any way as well. Thank you to everyone for supporting the Grade 9 students in their fundraising efforts.

Please contact Tara with questions and to sign up

Calahoo Meats Fundraiser


It is Spring, now is a good time to plan your barbeque season! It is also time for the Calahoo Meats fundraiser!

The Muir Lake School Grade 5 classes have taken on the Calahoo Meat Fundraiser in hopes of raising enough money to go on their annual camping trip.

Click the link for an Order Form  or a product brochure that you can share with your family and friends. Please condense your family & friends’ orders on to one order form.  These forms have gone home with the students and extra order forms are also available at the school office.

The order form along with payment will be accepted until the end of the school day on Friday April 10th. Please keep a copy of the order form for your records and to help you distribute your order. Late orders will not be accepted as this will delay the pick-up date.  Please make cheques payable to Muir Lake Community School Foundation (MLCSF).

A pick-up date has been set for the afternoon of Friday, May 1st 1:30 to 4:00 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 unfortunately 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 Maureena Goerz @ 780-655-0755.

Thank you in advance for supporting Muir Lake School and helping to make this fundraiser a success!

Anything you choose to do would be appreciated.

For more info or if you are able to help, please complete this form and return it to your child’s classroom teacher as soon as possible.  Without your support we would not be able to have this event – we require 12-15 people to run for the three days.

We look forward to working with you to make our book fair an exciting reading event for everyone
