Language & Literacy Parent Workshop

How Book Sharing Strengthens Language & Literacy Skills Parent Workshop

This workshop is designed to provide parents/teachers/grandparents/caregivers of children from preschool to grade 1 with information about the benefits of book sharing. Reading to children is a wonderful way to spend time with your little ones, but it can also help strengthen vocabulary, concept development, comprehension, grammar, reading development, and much more! This workshop will demonstrate things you can add to your book sharing time to get the most out of this activity. An Alberta Health Services Speech-Language Pathologist will present the workshop and be available for questions families may have.

November School Council Meeting

Despite Mother Nature’s best efforts to snow us out last night we had a great school council meeting. Among other things, we discussed Muir Lake Foundation report, Community League activities, fundraising, Board highlights, and our Muir Lake School AERR Report and Education Plan. Mrs. Matsuba also attended and gave a report on our student WE Day experience, as well as some of the future plans our students who are on the WE Care team have to make our school and world a better place. Thanks to all who braved the snow to be there.

We invite you to attend the next School Council meeting on December 9. There will be opportunity for some socializing over Christmas baking and coffee. Mrs. Paulson, the School Council Chairperson, will also be having a draw for a door prize for those in attendance. After the meeting we are hosting a parent workshop called Twitter for Parents: Engaged In Education for those who are interested in learning to tweet, as well as how and why social media is utilized in education. Feel free to bring some delicious Christmas baking and hope to see you there!
