Muir Lake Leadership

On Monday October 31st,  Leadership has organized 3 events in which students throughout the school will participate.

The kids carnival will take place from 8:05-11:25 with the grades K-4 attending.  In the carnival, students will be taking part in many fun and challenging activity stations.

Leadership students will also be going to classes in grades 5 and 6 to lead Halloween related games.

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!!
