RE: Junior/Intermediate Electives Day

Dear Muir Families,

Alexander Muir will be holding an Electives Day on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 during the school day. All students from grades 4-8 will have the opportunity to participate in one of the electives being offered. All of the electives support our physical education curriculum and healthy schools initiative by providing our students with a variety of opportunities to be active.

We ask you to refer to the following chart when discussing your child’s preferences. We also ask you to discuss appropriate behavior on field trips. Canadian winters are unpredictable, and in the event our Electives Day is cancelled due to inclement weather (e.g., YRDSB cancels all school buses, or there is no snow) our alternate date for electives is Wednesday, March 9, 2016.

*Helmets must be a CSA helmet approved for skating. NO bicycle, skateboarding,          ski/snowboarding, baseball, dirt biking or other helmets will be permitted.

All off-site activities are provided on a first come, first served basis.  A Ministry of Education outdoor education grant, has allowed us to reduce the overall cost for each activity. For tracking purposes, ALL REGISTRATION FORMS AND PAYMENT MUST BE COMPLETED ONLINE.  If you do not register your child for an off-site elective using the school cash online website for rock climbing and snow tubing, or the google form for skating, your child will automatically be placed in the at-school electives. If you attempt to register for an activity and the option is no longer available, this means that all spaces have been filled. The deadline to register for ALL electives is Wednesday, February 10, 2016. Spaces are limited.

Once you have registered your child, Ms. Kallo and Ms. Reid will send home the appropriate waiver forms for rock climbing, snow tubing, and consent to participate.


If you are interested in coming on any of the off-site trips as a parent volunteer, please have your child pick up a volunteer form from Ms. Kallo or Ms. Reid. Once we have our final numbers, we will let you know if we need your help. Thank you in advance for your support.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school.


Ms. Kallo & Ms. Reid                           Mr. Erdmann                Ms. Wand                                Electives Day Coordinators             Principal                     Vice Principal

If you have not yet registered with School Cash Online, you will need your child’s student id number which can be found on the green School Cash Online information sheet which all families received in September.

If you already used School Cash Online for other school related purchases and have an account, please sign in and look for the Junior/Intermediate Winter Electives Day registration and follow the instructions.
