Next Friday, May 11th, the staff at Maple Grove will be hosting our annual “Volunteer Appreciation Event”. Everyone who has volunteered this year is invited to our special celebration in the library at 10:15 am.
It’s a Kid’s Life
On Wednesday and Thursday this week, the students of Divisions 1, 5, and 6 put on a wonderful show, It’s A Kid’s Life. The students performed in a most professional manner. It was as good as being at a live show on Broadway. Thank you to the students and to their teachers, Ms Plavan, Mrs. Humeniuk and Ms Yeung.
POETRY AND SPEECH ARTS ASSEMBLY
On Monday we had a celebration around this year’s oral language goal. We heard many lovely poems, including some slam poems presented by the students of Division 1. The slam poems made us think about some challenging issues. Also we heard the winner of our poetry competition, Daniel Chan from Division 3, recite his poem.
Please take time to consider the importance of being prepared for an earthquake. Here is a link to the City of Vancouver’s web site with some excellent advice.
