CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR TRACK TEAM
Congratulations to our track and field competitors. In spite of the rain they enjoyed the day and did really well. They all seemed to have several ribbons of which they were very proud. Thank you to Mrs. Dorchester and Mrs. Wong for all their hard work. Thank you to the parents for their support, driving and assisting at the meet.
CAMP FOR GRADE 6 – a wonderful and rich learning experience.
Grade 6 Camp
The students had a wonderful trip that was full of engaging outdoor activities and discussions about sustainability. The teachers and camp leaders were very impressed by the enthusiasm of this year’s grade 6’s. The major success for Maple Grove this year was that we met the “Zero Waste Challenge.” Over three days, we did not waste any food from breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The students were diligent about taking only what they could eat and helped one another finish any leftovers. Maple Grove students even volunteered to take home the kitchen’s recycling and put it in their home blue boxes. The students will have wonderful memories of this trip.
Thank you to Mr. Munk for organizing the camp and thank you to Ms Burghall, Mr. Wu, Mr. Johnson, Ms Bartlett and Ms Belliveau for going to camp to supervise the students.
