Gr 5 Camp Fundraisers

With Spring just around the corner, now is a good time to plan your barbeque season!

The Muir Lake School Grade 5 classes have taken on the Calahoo Meats and Kernels Popcorn Fundraisers in hopes of raising enough money to go on their annual camping trip.

Kernels popcorn comes popped and is in bags the size of individual chip bags. They are popped and sealed the day before the bags are delivered to you. These healthy snacks are gluten-free, nut free and have a shelf life of 10 weeks!

We have two easy ways to complete your Calahoo Meats & Kernels Popcorn orders.  Click HERE for the information letter, product brochure as well as the Calahoo Meats and Kernels Popcorn order forms that you can share with your family and friends. These packages are also going home with the students.

Order forms along with payment will be accepted into the office until the end of the school day on Wednesday April 5th. We have also added these items to the online fundraising area at www.muirlakeschool.hotlunches.net.  Please click on the login tab and Muir Lake Fundraising will appear.

Late orders will not be accepted as this will delay the pick-up date. Payments can be made online through the Fundraising Site or by cash or cheque made payable to Muir Lake Community School Foundation (MLCSF).

The Kernels Popcorn orders can be picked up in the school kitchen on Thursday April 20th until 1:30 pm.

A pick-up date for the Calahoo Meats orders has been set for the afternoon of Wednesday April 26th from 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.

Thank you in advance for supporting Muir Lake School and helping make our grade 5 Camp Fundraiser a success! Should you have any questions about this fundraiser please contact Kimberly Tom @ 780-868-3411.

Critical Thinking Mini-Challenges in Grade 5

As part of the grade 5 Literacy Stations, students rotate through a “Critical Thinking” activity.  The discussions that have come out of these mini-challenges have been fantastic and they show that the students are really thinking about their thinking and becoming open (and independent) minded.  The links for a few of these mini-challenges and corresponding resources can be found below:
