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!

Click the link for an Order Form and/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.

The order form along with payment will be accepted until the end of the school day on Wednesday May 1st. 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 Thursday, May 16th from 12:00 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 Jen @ 780-983-1316.

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

Toonies for Terry


We are collecting “Toonies for Terry” in support of cancer research and Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.  Students are asked to please bring in a toonie to their homeroom teacher by Friday September 25th to donate to this special cause. We will be participating in the Nationwide School Run Day by walking on Friday morning. From there they will move into the Welcome Back BBQ Festivities that are planned for the day. 

Thank you for helping in this Fight Against Cancer

Welcome Back BBQ

Just a reminder that our Welcome Back BBQ is this Friday (September 25).  Parents are encouraged to bring a blanket to sit on with their children during the eating portion of the afternoon.  Please pick your children up at their respective classrooms, and then head outside.  Pick a spot to enjoy your meal together.  Any students who have parents who are unable to attend, will sit with their homeroom teachers; these students are also encouraged to bring a small blanket/beach towel to sit on.  The order of events for the afternoon is as follows:
11:30-12:30 – BBQ Lunch for parents, staff & students
12:30 – Meet the Staff (inside the school)
1:15 – HOJA Concert (back outside)
We are hoping for great weather.  Should the weather be uncooperative, families are welcome to join their child(ren) in their respective classrooms to enjoy eating lunch together, and the concert will be moved to the gym.  We are looking forward to seeing you all on Friday!

Don’t Forget . . .

This Friday, September 13th, Muir Lake School invites you to join us at our Welcome Back BBQ & Festivities!   The outdoor fun begins with a Picnic Hot Dog BBQ at 11:30, Meet the Staff at 12:30, and then enjoy the Acapella sounds of Hoja at 1:15.  See you Friday!

And Then . . . .

The first School Council meeting of the 2013 2014 school year is scheduled for Monday September 16th at 7 p.m.  All parents are invited to attend.  These meetings are scheduled on the second teaching Monday of the month, so please feel free to attend and find out what is going on at your child’s school.
