When Exactly?  Races begin at 4:00 pm, starting with the youngest runners.  Please arrive at the race by 3:45 pm.  Parents of students in grades K-4 are required to accompany their child to their running location and they must stay and supervise their child in that location.  This year, the cross country coaches are Ms. Wayken, Mr. Shaw and Mrs. Gadoury. Please find one of the coaches as soon as you arrive at the race location. Your coaches will make sure you are signed in and have the correct name and race category label. Parents, you are welcome to leave after your child’s race, or feel free to stay and cheer on other Muir Lakers. All practices will take place during school lunch hours with Ms. Wayken, Mr. Shaw or Mrs. Gadoury. All registered Muir Lake Cross Country athletes need to attend all practices.  Practices will be on Monday and Wednesday at lunch recess.  

Who?      Any child from Grade K-9.  Parents are responsible for all transportation.

What?    Runners compete against children of the same gender and year of birth (e.g. girls, 2005).  The races are through trails or an established route through a schoolyard. It is considered to be an accomplishment just to finish the race; some medals and ribbons are given out to the fastest runners.  Born 2010-2012 runners run 800 m, Born  2009-2006 runners run 1000 m and Born  2005 and older  runners run 2000 m.

Cost?     $5.00 for each race registered. Fees cover costs of medals, ribbons etc.

Thank you, have fun & good luck!

ML Blooms Community Project

Happy Spring!  We are “budding” with excitement about our “Muir Lake Blooms Community Project” and we are hoping that you will be interested in participating.

We, at Muir Lake School, are intentional in providing students with meaningful opportunities to learn more about their natural Muir Lake surroundings and Alberta’s flora. In this project, students will be involved in the process of designing, building and maintaining gardens at Muir Lake School beginning this spring. This will give hands on learning experiences and a practical application to their school programs.  We have ideas, but are also looking to have parent and community input.  

Please plan to attend an informational session on Tuesday, April 18th at 7 p.m.

When: Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
What: Muir Lake School Community Blooms Project
Where: In the Library Learning Commons at Muir Lake School
Who: Anyone who is interested in planning and helping
Why:  A unique opportunity for students and the community to come together to:

  • learn more about gardening and plants that are native to Alberta,
  • help beautify Muir Lake School,
  • participate in a project to commemorate Canada’s 150th Birthday
  • and get to know and socialize within the Muir Lake Community

If you can donate an hour or more of your time and/or are handy with a hammer, love to build or plant, have access to gardening tools or machines, have gardening experience and would love to participate in this project, we would love to see you at the meeting. Please let us know if you are able to attend the Muir Lake Blooms Community Project meeting by returning the bottom portion of the letter that will be going out or by clicking HERE by Monday, April 17th, 2017 so that we may plan accordingly.

Should you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us at 780-963-3535 or email us at muirlake@psd70.ab.ca.  We look forward to you joining us!

However . . . . If we do not have a parent volunteer for each bus we cannot send the students skiing. The volunteers would be responsible for making sure that all registered students have boarded the bus at the school as well as on the return trip from the ski hill.  Also, getting and distributing the ski passes as well as being the parent emergency contact at the ski hill.

If you can help please contact Jana to discuss the discount that can be offered.
