Muir Lake School Foundation
Muir Lake School has provided our rural neighbourhood with a community focus for over 25 years. Our school building has been continually modernized and expanded to meet the increasing enrollment of the growing Community.
In 2000, the Muir Lake Community School Foundation (MLCSF) was formed, and has since undertaken a needs assessment of the students and local community. MLCSF, with the help of the students and Michael Evans of Earthscape Consultants, developed a Master Plan.
The phases of the Master Plan are:
- Junior playground to the northwest of the school
- South and west drainage
- Soccer pitch, track area and sliding hill
- Senior playground to the west of the school
- Interpretive trail in the wooded area to the northwest of the school
The MLCSF has raised money via 50/50 raffles, quad raffle, silent auctions and dances, casinos, spell-a-thons and cookbook sales, along with many small and substantial donations. With the help of matching government grants and continuing dedication of our volunteers and corporate donations from Prairie North Construction and Myshak Sales and Rentals, among many others, we have been able to improve our school grounds with a dynamic $125,000 playground area, and a quarter-of-a-million-dollar rubberized running track and soccer pitch.
We believe that physical activity and active families are vital to the well-being of our community. The students of the school, area residents and visitors already enjoy our facility, and we know that the playground, track and soccer field will only enhance our school and community for years to come. We are hoping that with your help we can continue with the next phase of this project and bring the dream to fruition.
The MLCSF is made up of various volunteers and executive officers. These positions include Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary, and Directors. The committee gets together once every couple of months or so, depending on the need at that time.
