Thank you! The Millarville Community Foundation would like to thank all the casino volunteers that worked Jan 3rd & 4th. We especially want to thank Norma Dawson for organizing all the volunteers! Also a big thank you to Grant & Jill Sanden for helping coordinate the casino. We really appreciate all the volunteers that help support the Millarville Community School, Millarville Sports Association, Community Library, Preschool & Playschool. We are very fortunate to live in such a wonderful community!

Going Grocery Shopping? Don’t forget to pick up your Sobey’s Gift Card at the school office! Every dollar raised helps to provide funding for school programs, field trips and more! The more money we earn the less you have to pay as a parent for these valuable educational enhancements. The gift cards will be available till the end of the school year. The first family that purchases a total of $2000.00 worth of gift cards wins a family photo session with Janet Horbacio Photography in Calgary. The session includes a family portrait session and an 8 x 10 print. This gift certificate is valued at $175.00!

A Big Thank Your to the Fundraising Society!!! Outdoor Pursuits would like to thank the Fundraising Society for supporting our recent purchase of Cross Country Skis in the amount of $6500.00! Thank you also to the MCS families that continue to support the Fundraising Initiatives to make these amazing purchases possible!

The school has been going through a LOT of PLASTIC SPOONS!! Please do not forget to pack reusable spoons/forks in your child’s lunch. It is environmental and saves the school the cost of supplying plastic cutlery.

It’s not too late! Online pre-ordering for February Hot Lunch closes Monday, January 27th at midnight. Haven’t registered yet? Sign up is easy and our menu items include many great options from Booster Juice to Quesadillas! Don’t forget, all pizza ordering is now online too.

Do you really want to make another lunch? Order online, sleep in on Hot Lunch day, and let us do the work for you!!! Full payment is due February 3rd.

…or just Google “Millarville hot lunches”!

A Greener, Blue News! We have decided to go green with our school’s Blue Newsletter. Instead of printing over 600 pages each publication, an email will be circulated with a digital copy in addition to it being posted on our school’s website. Starting on January 20th, only a limited number of paper copies will be available for pick-up in the school office.

Fresh Fruit Bowl Starting soon, the Healthy Initiatives Committee will be providing a bowl of fresh fruit for students, staff and parents to enjoy. Located either in the Learning Commons or the main office (TBD), it is intended to provide a healthy snack option if you are hungry or just in the mood for a piece of fruit. Fruits with peel will ensure cleanliness. Why not eat some fruit? After basketball practice… after a long bus ride… before hopping on the bus back home… waiting for a ride from a parent… or anytime your tummy is rumbly.

Please try it! We will continue to support the fruit bowl if it is eaten and enjoyed. [Please note that this is not a reflection that children’s’ lunches are lacking in fruit – they are not. It is just extra fruit.]

Funding was made available through a Healthy Initiatives grant awarded to Foothills School Division, shared between MCS and other participating schools. Feedback on this idea to Ms. Sanders, Lisa Grover or Dawn Dott. Interested in Healthy Initiatives? Contact Lisa.

Part Time Help Wanted Nola’s Granola is looking for two or three people to work one or two days a week making the best granola in the west! The job location is at the Red Deer Lake Church kitchen. Hours are from 8:004:00 but are fairly flexible to accommodate school schedules. Please call Glenda Bruder at 403-931-1558 if you have any interest or would like more information.
