Leadership Corner May 2012

Time flies when you are having fun! We can hardly believe we are in our final weeks of school, approximately 38 days of classes to go until the last exam is written. With so few days of classes remaining it is imperative that our students be in school. Please continue to make every effort to minimize absences.

As you can see by our calendar dates, we have a lot of things going on before school is out. We would like to thank all the volunteers that have been in the school this year.  Without you many of the extra activities would not have run so smoothly. Without a doubt all of our volunteers play an essential role at Muir Lake School. On this note, our volunteer appreciation celebration is tentatively scheduled for May 25th. Be looking for your personal invitation soon!

Our junior and senior badminton teams’ season is underway. Congratulations to the Muir Lake team for their first place finish in the Muir Lake Badminton Tournament that was held at Broxton Park School on April 20th.  Once again our athletes competed well and represented our school with pride. We wish the team luck in the County Tournament that will take place May 2 – 5. Thank-you to Mrs. Gadoury and Mr. Rowse for coaching and to the parents that were able to transport and rearrange schedules to fit this short season in.

Special thanks to Cheryl Williamson and Kelly Williamson for painting the beautiful “Leader in Me Mural” in our main entrance.  Check it out!!
