Principal’s Message

Good Afternoon,
As we bring our 2nd to last week to a close, I want to thank all the staff, parents, students, returning Magee students and sponsors for making this year’s sports day a huge success!  I’m sure we’ll post some pics next week.

This coming week is our last week together before the summer break.  I will write more as we bring the week to a close.  Presently we are preparing for our Grade 7 Leaving Ceremony, School Picnic, and several meetings.

Please remember with the warmer weather to dress appropriately, wear a hat, and slap on some sunscreen.

End of 2016 2017 School Year – A couple of reminders. . .

LEAVING EARLY – If you are leaving before June 29th, please supply the office with a self-addressed, stamped envelope and we will mail the report card to you.  You may also leave a note at the office allowing someone else to pick up the report card – otherwise we will keep it here for you to pick up in September.

RETURNING LATE – You should have received a notice for you to complete if you are returning to school after September 6th (first day is September 5th – one hour only) – If we cannot verify your child’s attendance at school by noon on September 6th, your child’s space will be given to another student on the school’s waitlist.

LOST AND FOUND – All lost and found items will be donated to charity next week.  We do not keep them over the summer.  Please check to see if there are any items that belong to you in the Lost and Found by Thursday.

Principal’s Message

Good Afternoon,
This was a busy week at Maple Grove.  This morning one of our PAC Co-Chair’s Galen Hutchinson and another PAC parent, Allison Arato, accompanied me while we held our annual Welcome New Families to Maple Grove.  The event was well attended and served as an introduction for new students and parents to the Maple Grove school community. Special thanks to our grade 7 tour guides and to Ms. Tornroos for hosting in the school library.

School Organization for 2017-2018

Thank you to those of you who felt inclined to write an educational placement of your child for September.  There are many changes taking place at Maple Grove for a variety of reasons.  Some of which were controllable, some were out of our control.  There is a chance that there will still be more changes through the summer.  At the moment, Maple Grove is increasing in size from 20 to 22 divisions.  We are receiving extra support staff and resources to accommodate the larger school size.  However, to accommodate the increase in divisions, the VSB will be converting the second Open Area 309/311 and our defunct computer lab into classrooms.

Please see the DRAFT School Organization as it stands today:

Attention Drone Fliers:aaa drone

We are looking for a parent/student who has the ability to fly a drone with video and/or still imaging around the school for some aerial pics and vid images.  This would be for our website in the short term, and for the school archives once the new school is built.  If you have any access or connections who can help us out, please contact Mr. Evans for details.  Thank you!

Hot Lunch Program:

Unfortunately, due to dwindling enrollment and interest, the VSB user-pay Hot Lunch Program at Maple Grove and Nelson schools is ending as of June 29th.  There will be no Hot Lunch Program at Maple Grove.  We will still have the same lunch times and procedures, but students will be required to bring a lunch.  We would like to acknowledge Mrs. Rose Bevacqua for all her time, care, and attention to your children over the years.  We would also like to thank the volunteer parent helpers who assisted with the program every day for the 10 years.  Rose has already accepted a position at another school and has been over to meet the new students.

Microwave Ovens

It was unfortunate news from VSB Food Services, that the Maple Grove Hot Lunch Program was being terminated at the end of this school year due to low numbers of participants.  With that news, it was my thought that we would continue like most schools in the city and students will eat their lunches in our lunchroom during the regular lunch time.  And in an effort to facilitate student having access to warm lunches on those cold November-February days, students would be able to use the microwaves.
However, due to recent misuse, vandalism and pranks, Maple Grove will now remove the microwaves as they have been severely damaged beyond repair by students.  Students are now encouraged to bring a thermos if they want warm food at lunch.
This measure will remain in effect until we have time as a school community to revisit and rethink the safety and security of students and how we can avoid leaving ourselves open to fire hazards through misuse of the microwaves.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Staff Parking Lot is a Dangerous Place for Students

Parents we want to draw your attention to a major safety concern!  The staff parking lot, and circular driveway are for staff vehicles only.  Please do not use the parking lot as either a drop off or pedestrian thoroughfare.  We have had several near misses as students have been walking in a vehicle designated area.  There are many walkways that lead to the school and we want all students to only use those walkways so they are safe. We need your support to ensure the safety and security of all our students.

Bike to School/Work week

One last note –

Maple Grove won a social media prize for our blog updates on Bike to School/Work week – one bell and 300 pirate packs from White Spot.  Good for us!

peter's beautified bike

Students in Div 20 surprised Mr. Evans.  During the day, they secretly decorated his bike with ribbons, paper rings, pipe cleaners, filmstrips etc.  It made for an interesting and visible ride home.  Mr. Evans took it all in stride.  Ms. Greyhurst said it was part of the student’s Applied Design Skills and Technology grade.  Mr. Evans is checking with the Minister of Education to see if it can count (ah, June life in schools- LOL)

Butterflies are free

Some of primary classes had the good fortune to release butterflies this week. The weather cooperated as Div 20, 12 and 10 released this year’s group into the wild.

Thank you to all the bike to school/work week participants!  Despite the rather variable weather, we had a great turnout.  It was wonderful to have people ride their bikes to school who had never done it before.  A special thank you to Vicky, Tina, Imo, Michelle and Nicole from Division 2 and Lina from Div 1 for their help in signing students/staff in and giving out stickers and prizes.

A special Thank you to West Point Cycles (6069 West Boulevard) for their very generous donation of four gift certificates.  We had four draws: one for all staff riders, (Mrs Garrod), two for all student riders (Harrison Sayer and Mya Hall) and one for those who rode each day of Bike to School/Work week (Hester Aveline).  Congratulations!

May 26th Update

principals-message-1  Principal’s Message

Good Afternoon,
Today was a special day at Maple Grove.  This morning we recognized our amazing volunteer parents and community volunteers.  Here is the recognition speech. . .

Good Morning,
Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to come and celebrate with us our amazing volunteers.  One of my favorite quotes is, “To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”

The Maple Grove Magic is everywhere, and what better place to share and acknowledge the magic than in our beautiful library.  I’d like to take a moment to thank the Volunteer Tea committee (named individually).

You may never know the profound effect that you have made on a person’s life. A kind word, a gentle nudge, a listening ear, an act of kindness, can mean so much to some of our students.  You generously give the gift of time to provide support and encouragement and compassion to a school community in need of special materials and resources.  Without your time, and commitment, much of what we do at the school wouldn’t be possible.

You give of yourself and bring with you your life experiences, skills, abilities, compassion, intellect and humor and ask for nothing in return yet you receive friendship from many or our staff, appreciation from all of our students, and satisfaction hopefully from within you.

You volunteer for many different reasons but for whatever reason you provide support, skills, talents, abilities and opportunities to all of our learners here at the school.

We celebrate the selfless individuals in and around our school community who channel their civic virtues through volunteerism… devoted to a cause bigger than themselves… their child’s schooling.  Volunteers help drive our schools progress and day in and day out they make extraordinary sacrifices to expand promise and possibility of making Maple Grove a better place to learn.

You do not ask for accolades. You give your time generously without any expectation of reward. Yet you receive the reward of knowing that your volunteerism is making a profound and significant difference to our school community.

Please know that we genuinely appreciate and value your commitment of time to volunteering with our organization and for this we are truly and sincerely thankful.

Thank you for a wonderful week at Maple Grove we have an exciting 5 weeks left.

We are nearing the end of 2016 2017 School Year – A couple of reminders. . .

LEAVING EARLY – If you are leaving before June 29th, please supply the office with a self-addressed, stamped envelope and we will mail the report card to you.  You may also leave a note at the office allowing someone else to pick up the report card – otherwise we will keep it here for you to pick up in September.

RETURNING LATE – You should have received a notice for you to complete if you are returning to school after September 6th (first day is September 5th – one hour only) – If we cannot verify your child’s attendance at school by noon on September 6th, your child’s space will be given to another student on the school’s waitlist.

Congratulations Julia!

Julia had an amazing experience at National Championship in Edmonton! She took home a bronze medal managing to finish 3rd overall in the championship!

Bike to School/Work Week – May 29 to June 2

Bike to work weekweb-banners-btsw-main (1)

Staff vs Students – Parent Challenge  (proportionally calculated, of course):

We’ll have two sign-up sheets outside the office next week.  One for Staff and one for Students – Parents.  Each time that you ride, please come in and place a sticker beside your name – under the day that you rode.

You’ll have to show us your helmet to get a sticker AND don’t forget your bike lock!

Any parents who bike to work can let us know, and we’ll put a sticker on the Student Parent Team.

If you live far from Maple Grove, why not bring your bikes in your car, look for a spot to park along the Arbutus Greenway, then ride as a family to school?  We’ll give you stickers for each member of your family.

Everyday next week we’ll give out some treats – we have granola bars, chick pea snacks and coupons for Whitespot.

We’re pleased to have gift certificates from West Point Grey Cycles.  When the week is done, we’ll have a draw including all participants of the winning team for one certificate, and another draw including all participants who rode each day for the second certificate

The weather looks great!  Let’s beat our record from last year!

May 19- Long weekend Edition

principals-message-1Principal’s Message

Good Afternoon,
I just wanted to thank all of the parents for the lovely get well gift.  I truly appreciated the kind thoughts and well-wishes.  It’s wonderful to be back with a clean bill-of-health.  I want to thank and acknowledge Mr. Brian Anderson for acting as Principal while I was away.  I was pleased to know that the school was under his experienced and watchful eye.  I would like to recognize our Vice Principal, Lindsay Thompson!  Ms. Thompson looked after much of the day-to-day operations of the school and many of the ongoing projects that required admin involvement.  Thank you!  I’d also like to acknowledge the staff for carrying on and doing what they do best- teaching.  It’s so nice to see that there are so many people who are willing and able to pick up extra bits and to go the distance! Thank you all.  Finally, I’d like to thank Ms. Peters and Ms. Lincoln for always working through tasks no matter how many interruptions, On this last day before the Victoria Day long weekend, it’s nice to take a moment to write to you with a couple of updates.  It’s been a busy year at MG and I’m happy to see that we’re progressing in many areas (FSA results, and seismic status) to name a few.

 

Regional Heritage Fair

Yesterday, a group of 11 students represented Maple Grove at the Regional Heritage Fair at Prince of Wales Secondary. They spent the day talking with judges and making new friends. Students also spent time working with City of Vancouver planners and engineers to help design the future of the Arbutus Greenway.

You will have the chance to talk to the students themselves and see their projects in person on Saturday, May 20 at 2:30pm at the Kerrisdale Community Centre.

Vijay from Div. 1 “Devil’s Brigade”

Kate from Div. 3 “How did Bill Reid’s Art Create a Deeper Understanding of Haida Culture”

Oscar & Adam from Div. 4 “Halifax Explosion”

Chloe & Kate from Div. 5 “Coast Salish Art”

Sasha from Div. 6 “John McCrae”

Jensen from Div. 13 “Canadian Military Technology in WWII”

Mio from Div. 14 “Franklin’s Lost Ship”

Eric from Div. 15 “Glen Brae (Canuck Place)”

Michelle from Div. 16 “How have the Douglas Treaties Affected First Nations Communities on Vancouver Island”

They worked hard on their projects and have so much to share.

Please join us on Saturday and support our students’ learning!

May 29 to June 4

Remember your locks and helmets, and come check in with Mrs. Peters when you ride your bike to work or school from May 29th to June 4th.  We have some stickers and nice treats for participants!

A big THANK YOU to all for a very successful campaign effort.  Almost $700 was raised.

Cupcake parties are awarded to Ms S. Wong’s class for intermediate and Ms Seebaran/Ms Tsang’s class and Ms Hart/Belliveau’s classes for primary (it was a tie)  for selling the most orchids.

The top sellers were Sasha Bogart and Oscar Singer.  They will receive one free orchid and a surprise coupon.  Honourable mention to Lyla Marlow, Nathan Ching and Charlotte Chang.
