Thursday, June 28, 2018 Early Dismissal in Elementary Schools

Dear Muir Families:

 All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being.  On Thursday, June 28, 2018, an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day.  These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 28, 2018 only.  Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:00 a.m.  Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time.  Parents/guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.

Mission Accomplished!

We are so proud of our grade 7 students in Mrs. O’Donnell’s class. On Tuesday, June 5th, our students were honoured to present technology (Chromebooks, laptop, internet & accessories) to a local newcomer Syrian family. After many months of learning, planning, organizing and fundraising they were pleased to finally meet the family and share with them our journey. Special thanks to the anonymous donor for your generous financial donation which allowed us to provide additional technology for the parents as well! We would also like to thank our local Staples Newmarket for all their help and support in making this special sharing happen. #ampscares #ampslearning #yrdsb

Update on School Field Re-Sodding

Dear Muir Families:
We wanted to update Muir families on the status of our field re-sodding. We were notified  that the preparations for the field will now be done during the third week of July, with the re-sodding taking place in early August. This means that our field use will not be affected for the remainder of this school year, however our field will be closed starting in September and will remain closed until the board provides approvals to use again. We hope to get further information on closure timelines in late August/early September. We will work as a staff to come up with a plan for recess/lunch hours beginning in September 2018. We will confirm our plan in September with families.
We are happy that the board has taken our school council’s concerns into consideration and have acted quickly to address them. We look forward to a new field at our school in the future. 
If you have any questions, please call us at the school (905) 895-9466.

Alexander Muir Public School 10th Anniversary Celebration

Past and present Alexander Muir Public School students, staff and Muir community members were invited to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the school. Guests enjoyed the French cafe, social media booth and of course, an official cake cutting! The most memorable part of the evening was perusing the decade-old timeline that covered the gymnasium walls – something everyone enjoyed spending time going through. Congrats to Alexander Muir on this 10th Anniversary celebration and for more info, please visit yrdsb.ca/schools/alexandermuir.ps
