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!

Formal Day Volunteers

Formal Day is just around the corner.  We will be holding this annual event on Friday February 12th.  Muir Lake Leadership is hard at work planning and creating.  We would like to ask if there are any parent volunteers who would be willing to help cook the meal on the morning of the 12th.

We are currently, planning and budgeting for a meal, but would also like the input of the volunteering parents.

If you are interested in helping out, please email Mrs. Arnold (karnold@psd70.ab.ca).  We will be sending out emails regarding menu, times etc once we have the group organized.

Muir Lake is so lucky to have such wonderful volunteers.  Without our community of parents, we wouldn’t have such great events and opportunities for all our students.

Thank you for all you do!!
