We LOVE Music @ MLS

Don’t you just LOVE five year olds! They are so excited, enthusiastic and engaged in their learning. I was privileged to hang out with our Kindergarten students this morning during their Music class. It was their first experience with xylophones … WOW!!

A Melodious Celebration of the Christmas Season …

It was FANTASTIC to have our students participate in the Festival of Trees at the Heritage Pavilion in Stony Plain!

The Muir Lake School (MLS) 4-6 Choir and MLS Fiddlers delighted the audience with their performances.  As I sat and enjoyed the festive presentations, I scanned the audience and saw many smiling faces and proud parents.

Thank you for joining us to welcome the beautiful Christmas Season!
